Canon Pixma TS5120 Black
Review date: 11/02/2020
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a printer that connects to the internet through both WiFi and Bluetooth! And then it prints tall buildings from your computer or smartphone. Yup, that's what it does.
What could happen if something goes wrong
This printer allows you to print locally over WiFi and also from the Cloud. With anything stored in the Cloud, you're counting on that Cloud storage to be safe and secure at all times. As we all know, hacks and data leaks happen. So if you're planning on printing super sensitive stuff, it's probably best to get a printer that just connects directly to your computer. We do like that Canon says they will not transfer your personal data without your prior explicit consent.
