CNET First Look
Canon Pixma MG6120We recommend the Canon Pixma MG6120 compact multifunction printer for its simple touch-sensitive control panel, HD Movie Print feature, and capable performance that stand out from the competition.
-Hi, I'm Justin Yu with cnet.com with the first look at the Canon Pixma MG6120 multifunction printer. We had a few issues with the touch sensitivity on the control panel, but its missed steps are definitely offset by its confident home office capabilities and those include HD Movie Print, simple installation, and dual paper trays on the top and bottom that can hold up to 300 sheets of paper at a time. The MG6120 takes on a new design that incorporates folding trays all around to keep the footprint relatively small and easy to transport despite the rear-mounted Auto Document Feeder and its six individual ink tanks inside. But the most interesting design change comes in the form of this interactive touch-sensitive control panel. As you can see, the only tactile button you get is for power. All the other buttons light up on an as needed basis depending on the function you're accessing. The controls also work in conjunction with this 3-inch LCD screen that lifts forward from the middle and tilts back into the unit. The new button style is easy to use, but we're hoping that Canon will let us adjust the sensitivity in future models as the current setting is so sensitive that we found ourselves accessing the wrong buttons accidentally. Along with the standard multifunction duties like copy, print, and scan, the MG6120 also includes Canon's HD Movie Print feature that will let you pull still snap shots out of videos shot with compatible HD Canon cameras. In terms of performance, the MG6120 registers impressive output speed in two out of the four tests, but did fall behind the competition printing text prints and photos. With that said, this printer may not be the quickest performer for graphic design offices, but we would not hesitate to recommend its output quality in a boardroom presentation. And you can read more about all those features and performance scores for this printer in its full review on cnet.com, but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu. You just took a first look at the Canon Pixma MG6120 all-in-one printer. Thanks for watching.
