When printing pictures, however, the WorkForce 520 decreases significantly. It published our 4×6-inch test photo in routine setting in 1 minute and also 34 secs, virtually 30 secs slower than the Pixma MX350. It was even slower when printing our 8.5×11-inch examination image. Its time of 3 mins as well as 25 secs was among the slowest we’ve seen not just in this cost array, however additionally amongst current inkjet printers in general. We do not locate this widely shocking, however, being that this printer is placed for the small-office market. Just recognize this if you do intend on printing a whole lot of images on it.
Labor force 520 uses a five-ink system that includes cyan, magenta and also yellow inks, plus – for expanded printing capability with fewer interruptions – two black ink cartridges. Using pigment-based DURABrite Ultra inks, the WorkForce creates photos and also files with vibrant shades and clear text. These inks are formulated to deliver web pages that are spot, fade and also water resistant.
