The Canon Pixma TS6360 Wireless All-in-One ($180), a direct competitor to the Editors’ Choice Epson Expression Premium XP-7100 Small-in-One, is a photo-centric multifunction printer designed for family and home-office use. Like the XP-7100, the TS6360 is a five-ink machine with excellent print quality; also like most family-oriented photo printers, it’s somewhat expensive to use. Even so, this Pixma is an excellent choice for a den or micro office with moderate document- and photograph-printing needs.
A New Look
The Pixma TS6360, an upgrade to Canon’s TS6260, is one of four recently upgraded TS-series models, which includes the Pixma TS8320 reviewed here a few months ago and the soon-to-be reviewed TS3320 and TS5320. This time around, the TS6360 is available in black, white, or navy blue, instead of just the black or white models offered last year, and this latest version has an all-new look.
While last year’s TS6260 had a 3-inch color LCD control panel and a few supporting buttons that occupied most of the face of the printer, the Pixma TS6360 sports a 1.44-inch OLED screen with an LED status bar designed to make it quicker and easier to navigate and view the printer’s status. The control panel and supporting buttons are all located toward the right side of the printer face, as shown here.
