I've had a Canon TR-8520 for a while now. (WIFI is nice, the host computer does not have to be awake to print.)
It does well, but it's a few months old (or more) and probably no longer available.
I've had good luck with Canon printers so far.
Four ink tanks are about $75 a set, but I send the majority of photos to Costco for printing.

Your reply is ok but not very highly exciting?

hahaha.....
It's a printer...... primarily.

Two cassettes and rear feed for papers.
I have legal (& envelopes) rear; letter in front lower; 4x6 photo paper in front upper.

My OLD Canon 9xxx? AIO did dual sided document scanning, this one only scans one side at a time.
I think the max print size may be 8x12.

Sorry, I don't get worked up about computer peripherals (my monitors are, monitors) and a lot of other trinkets.
I won't buy a single cartridge system (One color always runs out WAY before the other colors; nor do I need a printer with a dozen ink tanks. This has 5 cartridges, C, Y, M, photo black, and a larger text black.) Had an Epson once, it was a printer. It worked nicely also. I just favor Canon printers, so far.

Fax is an option. It requires an analog phone line to work. We have a lot of these printers in our plant but only 1 can fax as we only have 1 analog phone line.

I'm a holdout - We still have copper (analog) running to the house.
AND, one phone that is not portable that works when power goes out.
Copper is powered by the phone company.

My land line is voice over IP so if I have the printer at home it won't work either

I have the same printer and my wife has the newer version the TS 8320. They both take the same ink cartridges and I get ink to refill from Precision Color.

I maybe going 2 Best Buy & voice my opinion 2 them & see where i stand? My biggest problem may have been by not downloading the CD-ROM after the installation was complete.
