Canon Pixma TS702 printer

A regular inkjet printer from Canon, with Ethernet and WiFi networking, and wireless printing with Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. Works with Windows and macOS.

About

The Canon Pixma TS702 is a regular inkjet printer. It works with Windows and macOS. The capacity of the main paper tray is 250 sheets, a generous size. It can accept paper up to 29# basis weight, slightly heavier than common office bond, but less than what many printers can accept. There's a second tray for full-size paper, allowing you to load letterhead paper, for instance. The printer can print directly on inkjet-printable CDs and DVDs. The printer has a small 1.9-inch display screen. You can connect directly to a PC with a USB cable, or to your network router either wirelessly with WiFi or with an Ethernet cable. When setup for use, the Canon Pixma TS702 requires a space that measures 13.2 inches high by 14.6 inches wide by 22.6 inches deep, and weights 11.9 pounds.

Connections

Networking Networking The printer may connect to a home network either via an Ethernet or a WiFi connection. Ethernet is the common wired network and WiFi is the wireless format commonly found in laptop computers. Many printers also support Apple AirPrint and/or Google Cloud Print.

Features

Individual color tanks Individual color tanks Some inkjet printers use a separate tank for each color. Others have tri-color cartridges with three colors in one. Individual tanks let you replace only the color that runs out rather than tossing a tri-color cartridge that may have some ink left.
Yes
Auto-duplex printing Auto-duplex printing Can print automatically on both sides of the paper.
Yes
Can print if color empty Can print if color empty Can still print (usually in black and white only) if a color ink cartridge runs out. May require changing a setting, and leaving the empty cartridges installed. The printer may offer this option for a short time only. The option may not appear at all unless you've first installed the printer's full software package.
Yes
Swap black for photo ink Swap black for photo ink The photo ink for some inkjet printers comes in an extra cartridge. To use these photo inks, you must remove the black-ink cartridge and replace it with the photo-ink cartridge. To go back to printing text or graphics, you must do the reverse. This can get tedious. Models that hold all the inks simultaneously minimize the hassle.
N/A
Borderless photos Borderless photos This feature lets you print photos that go edge-to-edge without a white border.
