Canon PIXMA TR4520 Installer & Software
So far I have always had good experiences with Canon printers. The Pixma TR4520 is also functionally seamless. A small multifunctional device that is ideal in the home office. Just be careful: the ink cartridges are very expensive and the device is quite loud when printing.

Right from the start! The printer can be set up in 10 minutes and is accompanied by instructions. If you really want to use all functions, you can’t avoid logging into the Canon Cloud and using the service over the Internet.
But you can do without long and ugly cables and the printer, scanner and copier work perfectly via WLAN. A big plus if you don’t want to mess up your home office with dozens of cables.
The printer’s case is a bit rickety and thin. It is made entirely of plastic and doesn’t look like it would survive a fall from a desk. Since the printer itself is very cheap, I think you can turn a blind eye here.
Especially since prints usually have a fixed location and are not transported more frequently – so there is little risk of them falling.
It is noticeable that the printer has no display and is operated purely via buttons (or the cloud). Anyone expecting a touchscreen here will be disappointed.
The quality of the print, copy and scan are good, if not outstanding. You can also make photo printouts with the printer, but these are a) very expensive due to the ink consumption (just under 14 cents) and b) not as good in quality as an online development service.
The scanner offers a resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi, which is sufficient for normal home use and the home office. Anyone who works with graphics or art would certainly need a higher resolution at this point.

My biggest criticism of the printer is the unnecessarily wasteful cartridge system. On the one hand, Canon still relies on 3 cartridges, which are necessary for color printing.
This produces more rubbish and you have to buy a single color more often. On the other hand, the cartridges are very expensive and have no relation to the price of the printer itself – they cost more than half as much as the new printer (39 euros). So what Canon earns its money with here is clear.
So a point that you absolutely have to know. If you don’t print often, you should get along with the system – but if you want to use the printer regularly and almost every day, you will be unpleasantly surprised by the skyrocketing costs.
Incidentally, even a black and white page costs just under 6 cents per print.
My final point of criticism is the volume of the printer. With over 50 dB, it is definitely one of the louder devices. Is not a problem at home during the day.
However, if you want to print something in the evening or even late in the evening, it can disturb the neighbors or other residents in the household.
Overall, the Pixma is a solid printer that does a good job for the price and for rare home use. For frequent users, however, unsuitable because it is too expensive.
