The new G series Canon inkjet printers already has the reputation for being innovative with its in-body large capacity tank design to store ink for longer usage. Canon have updated their Pixma G series with the new Pixma GM2070, which is an affordable high speed inkjet printer suitable for home office use.
Canon Pixma GM2070 arrived at my doorstep for a review and I get to use it for about 3 weeks or so. First look at this inkjet printer, I feel that this Pixma GM2070 is a well designed but rather large printer that is very much suitable if you have a SOHO type of place. It can fit more papers than its predecessors – up to 350 pcs of papers if you utilize both the front cassette and rear tray.
Now, this particular Canon Pixma GM2070 is a hybrid printer that comes with an ink-tank and ink cartridge as well. It is capable of printing out 13 pcs of papers (A4) per minute and the tank can yield up to 8,300 pages. With that much of pages, you don’t have to worry about running out of ink. You can also check the ink level via the Pixma app.
Being a hybrid printer, you can also print in colour with the Pixma GM2070. All you have to do is pop-in the colour cartridge and you’re good to go. You don’t need to remove the black cartridge when doing this because it has a designated slot for the colour cartridge.
One function that I love from this Pixma GM2070 is the ability to print wirelessly and also via your mobile phone. I did a few test prints using my mobile phone that I managed to connect using the Canon Pixma app that I’ve installed on my phone. All I have to do is open up any PDF or Word document using the Pixma app on my phone and hit that print button. I can even manage how many copies that I need and whether I want to print in duplex mode or not.
The print came out flawless and fast. All the text are in the right places given the fact that I’ve printed it from my phone. This can also be done from the PC or laptop. Just install the software and you’re done.
If you’re looking for a good and affordable SOHO type printer, this is the one you should get your hands on. What you will get is a stress-free black ink printer that can last you a very long time before you need to purchase more ink and that comes in a bottle for you to make a refill in the tank.
This will be a suitable printer if you’re looking for something to last you a very long time (before your next refill) and on the cheap side. To me, the price is very reasonable and affordable. The new Canon Pixma GM2070 is selling for RM778.00
