Canon iP8720 is wireless single function printer, with 6 ink tank cartridges, it produces excellent photo prints. A pigment-based black ink produces exceptionally crisp text.
The color quality is incredible! but It’s very slow to print. But I believe it’s difficult to find a printer that is fast and prints with that quality! But this printer does not have a canon paper icc profile so you cannot print with accurate color, not good enough for graphic designer.
The printer driver installation is very easy, you just have to follow the instructions that appear.
But the wireless connection is very difficult thing to do, get the user manual, but it’s lack of information. After searching to the canon official website, I found the specific manuals to Set-up the wireless printer. The steps on this manual is easy to follow.
You can see the steps how to setup wireless connection on Canon Pixma iP8720 based on the manual, you can follow the step how to initial setup of wireless, setting up additional computers, and re-establishing connection after network change.
