http //ij.start.canon ts5100 – The Canon Pixma TS5100 is a basic all-in-one built for home use. Although the feature set emphasizes simplicity, you do get a duplexer for making two-sided prints (a feature usually available only on pricier models).
Canon Pixma TS5100 Design
The TS5100 has a small body and comes in black or white. It is small, at 16.8 inches wide by 12.5 inches deep and 5.8 inches tall, and could fit on a desk. Without paper loaded, it weighs a little over 14 pounds, light enough that you can move it around easily. This printer foregoes an automatic document feeder on top and has no SD Card slot or USB direct print port for printing from a memory card or thumb drive, respectively
There’s no automatic document feeder on top. On the bottom of the chassis is the paper cassette, with an output tray just above it. The output tray is short and has a narrow tongue that folds out on a hinge to support printouts. Both the input and output tray feel flimsy. I found the partial cover for the input cassette finicky to put back in place.
The paper cassette handles only plain paper and can hold 100 sheets. After lifting up the paper support, you can load up to 100 plain paper sheets or twenty 4-by-6-inch sheets.
Canon Pixma TS5100 Print Speed
The TS5100 printed our five-page text document in 36.1 seconds, or 8.3 pages per minute. That’s roughy average speed.
The TS5100 also printed our mixed text and color-graphics document with average speed. At 2 minutes, 33 seconds (or 2.4 ppm), this printer was much slower than the quickest model we’ve tested (the Epson XP-640), which took just 1 minute, 11 seconds.
The TS5100 makes two-sided text prints relatively slowly, at 2.2 ppm, compared to the average of 3.1 ppm. At 4 minutes, 29 seconds, it took more than a minute longer than the average to print our 10-page text document.
However, the TS5100 is among the fastest models at printing two-sided color documents with mixed text and graphics. Printing our six-page document at 2.2 ppm, the TS5100 bested almost all other models. At 2 minutes, 47 seconds, the TS5100 was 40 seconds faster than the average of 3 minutes, 27 seconds.
The TS5100 was also faster than the average at printing our test image at high-resolution settings on letter-size photo paper. It took 4 minutes, 3 seconds to do so, or 55 seconds faster than the average. Several other models were significantly faster,
The TS5100 printed a 4-by-6 page in 1 minute, 2 seconds at default settings, and in 2 minutes, 3 seconds at Best Quality settings.
Canon Pixma TS5100 Copy and Scan Speed
The TS5100 turned in roughly average speeds in our copying tests. It copied a black-and-white page in 14.4 seconds, or roughly 1 second faster than the average.
Making a color copy in 29.3 seconds, the TS5100 was just below the average, but 10 seconds slower than the lighting-fast Canon Pixma TS6020.
Scanning in color at 600 dpi to JPEG format, the TS5100 was faster than the average, at 61 seconds.
Scanning in black and white to PDF at 300 dpi, the TS5100 was blisteringly fast. It took just 7.3 seconds to make a PDF, making the TS5100 the fastest model on this test to date. By comparison, the Epson XP-640 took 16.1 seconds. This was the only speed test in which the TS5100 bested our Editor’s Pick.
Canon Pixma TS5100 Print Quality
The text prints did not quite rival the sharpness of laser-printer results, but the quality was quite good. Duplex prints of text, however, looked lighter and grayish compared to single-sided prints.
The TS5100 printed very attractive color graphics on plain paper. Colors were well-saturated, looked natural and had plenty of fine detail. Midtone transitions looked smooth. Similar to two-sided prints of text, color graphics printed using the duplexer looked lighter overall; dark areas in particular printed in lighter hues. Details and smooth midtone transitions were maintained, however.
Photographs printed on glossy paper showed lots of fine detail, richly saturated colors and smooth textures. In our test portrait, skin tone looked natural, and in our print of a still life, the TS5100 reproduced realistic shades and plenty of fine detail.
Copy quality was very high on graphics, which had lots of detail and richly saturated color. Text copied from plain-paper originals was sufficiently dark and quite sharp, although copies of sleeker letterforms from a glossy magazine came out with slightly fuzzy edges.
Canon Pixma TS5100 Ink Cost and Yield
The TS5100 keeps ink buying simple, using just two cartridges: a black and a tri-color. Using standard cartridges, estimated printing costs are above the average. The TS5100 uses 10.6 cents worth of ink for text pages. The TS5100 is still more expensive than most other tested models. However, an XXL black-ink cartridge is available, with a cost per page of 6.7 cents.
At 24.4 cents per color page, the TS5100 costs more than the average for tested models.
Canon Pixma TS5100 Setup and Software
The TS5100 is easy to set up. After removing the packing tape from outside and inside the unit, you follow the on-screen prompts until the printer tells you to continue with the “Getting Started” printed guide.
Connecting to my PC, my phone and my Wi-Fi network was simple. For Wi-Fi, I used the WPS method, pressing the button on my wireless router.
The all-in-one comes with a CD-ROM, but the printed guide directs you to install software from the web. Be forewarned that if you choose the full installation, it will include My Image Garden, which is a large download that you may not need. The display showed at first that it would take 7 minutes to download the software, then bumped that up to 9 minutes.
I found the TS5100’s paper-registration feature a little confusing. When you pull out the paper cassette, you need to register the paper type. But when you go to your PC, the paper type does not change unless you have checked the box saying, “Let the app change my printing preferences.”
You can put the TS5100 on your wireless network and use the Canon Print app with your smart device. AirPrint is supported for iOS devices. To set up the TS5100 with my Android phone, I simply followed the instructions on the printer’s display (iOS devices are also supported). It showed a password that I typed on my phone’s touch screen into the Canon Print app. I found myself repeatedly trying to tap the screen on the TS5100, forgetting it’s only a display.
The Pixma TS5100 is a basic all-in-one offering the flexibility of a duplexer and two paper trays. For a fair price, you get respectable performance in a budget-priced model.
In the end, the lower quality of two-sided prints is disappointing, and above-average ink costs are going to add up over the long haul.
