You might have known some type of multifunctional printer before, but did you really know which one is better than the others? At first glance maybe all the multifunctional printers like printer Canon and printer Epson look like the same, from the appearance of the features offered. However, there are some differences in printer parts and printer supplies that couldn’t be ignored, especially when you have a specific purpose to get one. You might feel like getting the best printer for printing photos, but when you look at the results of printer comparison, you might start to think differently. That is why most of the print shops have more than one type of printers. Let’s talk about the differences between these two printers and then we will come to the verdict of which one to choose for a certain purpose.
Printing texts are maybe the most usual purpose of getting yourself a printer, but between Canon and Epson, which one is better? While the printouts may look like the same, there are slight differences when you look into them in more details. You might have known that laser printers are the most accurate for precision and most inkjet printers cannot do anything to match their results. But it is different with Canon TS6020 and Canon MG 3620. These two printers are able to deliver the book worthy texts on high-quality papers. While Epson with their model WF-2760 could bring out the sharp text with impressive speed, although it is not as sharp as the one from printer canon, most people would still choose this one because of the speed. There are also duplexer for two-sided prints and Canon with their TS6020 produces lighter text using duplexer. Meanwhile, Epson with their WF-6590 did a better job with two-sided prints, it is the same quality as the one-sided prints. In the terms of overall text quality, Canon excels in several ways while equaling Epson even in its sloppy factors.
Other than texts, you would want to print some photos for your keepsake, wouldn’t you? The most common one is the glossy photo prints. While printer Epson is famous for its photo prints, but for glossy papers, they have to admit that the results with XP-640 are a bit saturated, which makes them look unnatural. On the other hand, Canon models tended toward a more natural look, though both the TS6020 and MG 3620 produced more saturation in deep red shades than other models. The difference is made clearer with printing a scene with very dark shadows. Epson printers could barely scratch the details out on the printouts but Canon TS6020 produced a noteworthy result with gorgeous details in dark area. In this matter, Canon once again bested Epson and we have to give it credits on doing a good job on glossy papers.
If we talk about copies, then Canon printers probably worst than Epson in many ways. Well, based on our printer comparison, the copies made by Canon models had slightly rougher-looking textures than Epson Models. However, the Canon TS6020 reproduced colors well, but dark areas lost its details. The MG3620’s copies produced banding, and the lack of transitions had a flattening effect. On top of them, the text became rougher than in the original. For this function, we would like to give credit to Epson, especially the XP-640 was the best copy machine during the test. It is clear that its copies were lighter than some others, but Epson’s all-in-one reproduced smooth transitions in both its copies of color graphics. When it comes to the scanning, Canon is a bit faster than Epson, but it also makes us wonder if that is the reason its copy are sloppy. While it is true Canon performs better than Epson, but looking at the results, Epson results are way better than Canons. If you want good results, it is better to choose Epson.
Last but not least, the print cost per page is actually still held by Canon, with amazing 21.1 cents per page. Epson losing by 1 cent at 22.1 cents per page. But if you are not someone who think too much about the cost, than either of them are good for you. Just choose whichever you want!
