Canon Pixma iP8720 Wireless Inkjet Printer Review

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2019-Dec-10 — /EPR COMPUTER NEWS/ — Introduced in January 2014, the Canon Pixma iP8720 is a 13-inch wide, dye-based inkjet printer that succeeded the Canon Pixma iX6520. This 5-color photo printer is designed for the reproduction of bold color on any high-quality inkjet paper. It is, therefore, a photo printer that every graphic designer and businessperson should consider.

Inside the Package

This canon model comes well-packed in a box with all the accessories packaged in separate bags. The items included in the shipping bag are the following:

• iP8720 Wireless Inkjet Photo Printer
• Setup ink tanks
• Power cord
• Disc tray
• Setup CD-ROM
• Manual and other documents

Inks

This unit uses Chromalife 100+ dye-based, Canon CLI-251 ink as well as a pigment black ink cartridge that’s designed for document and text printing.

Print Head

The printhead assembly of the iP8720 comes packaged in a separate bag. It comes with a large plastic cover which you must first remove in order to install the head followed by ink to its carriage.

Printing

After you have installed the heads and the ink, the printer is now good to go. It takes less than 5 minutes to start printing. For proper operation, be sure to leave at least 4 inches of space from the back. The assembled printer weighs 18.6 pounds and measures 23.3” (W) * 13.1” (D) * 6.3” (H). The front paper tray measures 12” when fully extended.

Front Control Panel

The front control panel has 3 buttons:

• A Power button with light
• Cancel/Resume buttons with a warning light
• Wireless connectivity button that has an indicator light

Connectivity

The Pixma iP8720 connects to a computer through Hi-Speed USB, wireless LAN, or PictBridge.

Media Paths

This unit features a single media path as well as a CD/DVD printing tray. The CD holder is included in the printer and is placed in the front slot. You will also need specialty DVD or CD media coated for inkjet coating. The My Image Garden Software by Canon is offered to set up and print the discs.

Print Speeds

This unit provides the appearance of a continuous tone, meaning that the ink dots are not visible after printing. This is mostly the case when printing on luster, glossy, and satin media. The block of colors is seamless and you can only see a few dots in mid-tone areas.

Brother International Corporation Introduces INKvestment Tank Printer That Eliminates Cartridge Replacement

Irwindale, California, USA, 2019-Dec-09 — /EPR COMPUTERS NEWS/ — The Brother International Corporation has successfully introduced the first INKvestment Tank printers to the market. This revolutionary tank technology can provide up to 365 days of ink which is efficient for 150 worry-free pages for every month.

The MFC-J995DW printer comes with a built-in ink storage tank. Hence, the mechanism has shifted from cartridge to inside the machine, resulting in maximum page yields. Also, with the storage tank designed inside the printer, the ink in the cartridge significantly increases and delivers up to 1 or 2 years of printing.

According to the company’s senior director of B2C product marketing, Phil Lubell, the Brother INKvestment Tank was engineered to resolve printing challenges like the ink diminishing and the need to replace the ink too soon. He went on to say that their research has shown that most people don’t like the hassle of replacing ink and they would rather throw the printers away.

With that in mind, Phil says that the INKvestment Tank MFC-J995DW delivers a great impact to businesses and office users since it gives a year’s worth of ink without the need to change cartridges. Hence, they can focus on other vital matters without worrying about their printing needs.

The Intelligent Page Gauge of this printer will also take away the worry of your ink diminishing at the wrong time. This smart technology keeps an eye on how the ink is used. It then displays an estimate of how many pages are remaining on a 2.7-inch color touch-screen.

Replacing the ink is also very easy thanks to the INKvestment Tank high yield cartridges. Eric Dahl, who is the director of B2C product marketing, noted that people hate changing ink cartridges, especially without any warning. That is why the new lineup maintains the benefits of a cartridge and they are designed with cleanliness, simplicity, and familiarity.

Brother inkjet cartridges are not only clean and quick, but they’re also very cost-efficient. They allow you to print for less than $0.05 per page in color and less than $0.01 per page in black and white.

With all these great specs, Brother’s INKvestment Tank technology offers great capabilities to ensure a seamless workflow. It also delivers numerous output options that enable you to deal with a plethora of projects including printing wirelessly that doesn’t require any setup.

You can scan and print wirelessly from your laptop, desktop, tablet, and smartphone. Sharing documents is possible using Brother iPrint and scan or using ‘print from and scan to’ cloud apps like Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox and more.

Try before you buy with South East Labels

South East Labels (SEL), the West Sussex label provider, now allows customers to try out products before purchasing them. This marketing initiative allows interested buyers to test the quality of a product before finalising a purchase.

Storeowners are often hesitant to upgrade their labelling systems, because there is no guarantee that a newer system will be more expedient. This leaves cashiers with out-dated scanners and verifiers that rarely scan on the first attempt.

Annoyed customers are then forced to stand in long queues waiting for the faulty system to register a reading – a problem most evident in grocery stores where it’s possible for a single customer to purchase over 100 items, which must each be scanned individually.

SEL’s “try before you buy” approach to labelling products removes the risk of upgrading to a system that’s incompatible with a storeowner’s needs. If storeowners are unhappy with the quality of a product, then they can try another or simply retain the system that they have.

When it comes to label manufacturers UK companies rarely offer such a transparent approach to sales. But the people at SEL are confident that their products work, and they express this belief by allowing potential buyers to try new items.

It is likely that more label companies will follow SEL’s lead in the near future. Customers like to know what they are buying, and this is especially relevant when the efficiency of their businesses is at stake.

New High-Tech OCZ Solid State Drives Now Available At dabs.com

Computer technology retailer dabs.com has recently unveiled new stock of OCZ’s latest solid state drive (SSD), which is set to be the hottest SSD on the computing market this year.

Anyone who wants to increase the power and performance of their computer without having to complete a full upgrade should take a look at OCZ Technology’s new Synapse Cache Solid State Drives.

These SSDs use new Dataplex software that makes them totally unique – unlike most SSDs on the market right now they are designed to be used in conjunction with standard hard drives (HDD). This new Dataplex software increases the speed at which data can be cached, as well as overhauling the way that it is done.

In the past, using an SSD and an HDD at the same time could have actually slowed down the entire running of your home PC, unless you were willing to upgrade to a SATA HDD and use an external enclosure to make data transfer speeds faster. Many people still want to be able to take advantage of the large capacity of their HDD while also benefiting from fast processing with a SSD, and with the Synapse Cache SSD this is now possible.

Duncan Rutherford, Product Manager of dabs.com said: “We understand that customers don’t always have the time or money to perform a full upgrade of their PC just to be able to make use of their new solid state drive, so buying a new motherboard just isn’t possible.

“With the help of OCZ’s amazing new SSD, our customers can get exactly what they want out of their PC without having to spend anything extra.”

The Synapse Cache SSD works so well because it caches ‘hot’ data that is used often on the easy-to-access SSD, while ‘cold’ data is stored on the HDD. By the third time that you run your system with this SSD, all of the data will have been sorted, so you can begin reaping the rewards of the fast Dataplex technology.

dabs.com currently stocks the OCZ Synapse Cache Solid State Drives in 64GB (32GB cache capacity) and 128GB (64GB cache capacity), and both can be bought from the online shop now.

Do you feel that your business or company needs that extra touch of class to stand out from the many competitors in the market? Little details such as improved and personalised labels can be the kind of features that would sway a customer to purchase your product.

After you’ve chosen how your labels look, you don’t have to wait around for them to be sent to you in the post as you can just print what you want when you want.

South Coast Labels Urge Better Info Management

South East Labels expects a continuing growth in demand for barcode and scanning equipment for information management purposes. Just a quick glance at recent news stories will explain why.

The phone hacking scandal that has sunk the News of the World Newspaper and besieged News International is an example of what can happen in complex organisations with poor data management and retrieval systems. The problems at New International have been exacerbated by alleged criminal activity, and the scandal inflamed by lackadaisical, if not corrpupt, internal and police investigations.

However, the underlying story is one of a commercial organisation struggling to manage the volume of information for which they are responsible and which will shed light on their business performance. In terms of the metropolitan police, the picture may simply be one of a failure to prioritise the time-consuming job of sifting documentary evidence.

That job now falls to Lord Justice Levenson who will head a judicial enquiry into phone hacking scandal and into media regulation generally. His job will be even more complex as, in addition to the mountains of documents from News International, there is likely to be hundreds of transcripts of interviews and statements to consider.

A process such as this can only be managed by barcoding packets of incoming documents, scanning them, and linking the storage location to a database which will enable easy retrieval and eventual archiving. South East Labels has experience of such systems being a trusted supplier of barcode printers and scanners.

Processor and graphics chip become one with the latest release of the AMD APU – capable of DirectX 11 graphics and quad-core processing power, with two processors available now at dabs.com.

With on-board graphics chips in the past many PC owners and builders have had to buy additional Graphics cards in order to be able to handle the latest PC games and HD videos.

The Socket FM1 processor is now available at dabs.com priced at £109.99 for the 2.9GHz A8-3850 and £89.98 for the 2.6 GHz A6-3650.

South East Labels Comments That Consumers Are The Latest Group To Benefit From The Barcode

The barcode was born from an alliance between manufacturers and retailers. South East Labels, a leading supplier of labelling services and systems, today commented that barcodes are increasingly being used by consumers to further their own ends. It seems that the data contained in a barcode is no longer just owned by the unholy alliance of those who make and those who sell. So, exactly what are those who buy using barcodes for?

When the barcode was patented in America in 1949 retailers and manufacturers had to wait for computer science to catch up before its full potential could be realised. At its heart it is not the barcode per se that does the work but the data that can be attached to it. With such data a simple barcode scan can help track, pick and deliver stock. Once in store this stock can be counted, monitored and automatically re-ordered. Using this data checkout waiting time can be reduced – helping goods sell quicker and getting more paying customers out the door. Furthermore a barcode’s data facilitates the smooth operation of complex and varied price promotions throughout the store.

According to South East Labels, however, the barcode may be striking back. It appears it is no longer serving as the hand-maiden for the efficient supply and sale of goods. Recent events suggest the barcode may also now be a tool for consumers to use, and in ways that may not be how the manufacturers and retailers ever dreamt of.

Stroll down a supermarket aisle. Stop at the soup – keep going past the dried stuff till you reach the tins. Locate a well-known variety of Tomato Soup. Now find the 300g tin. The barcode on this if scanned by a mobile device has provided thousands of music fans with a free mixtape from The Streets’ Mike Skinner. That will be without the manufacturer’s permission. Perhaps not since Warhol appropriated the image of a can of soup as an artwork has pop culture shamelessly plundered soup tins packaging to its own advantage. If this seems too absurd to be true – download the free Mike Scanner app and try for yourself. The barcode seems to have taken on a life of its own beyond its original intentions.

Another example of the barcode being made to strike back is slightly less obscure. Fooducate is an app for mobile devices that reads the barcodes of food packaging. It provides not supermarket cost prices or stock levels however. Instead it aims to cut through the fudged wording and smoke and mirrors that can characterise food packaging. It gives each product a simple to follow health rating and suggests alternatives if you find your health snack is actually a health hazard.

The barcode, it seems, strikes back – the rich data it enables are increasingly being used by consumers as well as by retailers and manufacturers. This merely serves to underline the on-going importance of the barcode. A spokesperson for South East Labels commented that “it’s interesting to see the uses that are being made of barcodes. We have been providing labelling services, software and products since 1988. If your business needs security labels, printed labels or barcodes we can help ensure they are provided in a timely manner. We can’t, however, stop Mr Skinner from attaching a download to a scan of them.”
