Canon G3010 Ink Tank Printer Review
Canon G3010 is one of the better ink tank printers to consider in this price range. Canon specializes the print media and they are one of the pioneers in this industry. They have produced and racked a wide range of printers, designed for the homes and offices. The G3010 is another good example from Canon that could be used by the home and office users. When it comes to pricing, it is quite reasonable, the offered features equally suffice with its price tag. This feature centric printer is suitable for all those who need a print every other day. To evaluate further, let’s delve into each section of this printer and see its section-wise performance.
The design of the Canon G3010 makes it pretty convenient. Unlike many other printers, the G3010 has the ink tank inside. This increased the size of the printer a bit. But everything is neatly aligned. Further, the connectivity and power port make the design more valuable. The reversible power connector is on the left of the printer. Plugging and removing it is easy because of the port setting. Ahead of that the system connectivity port is on the right hand of the printer.
The Canon G3010 printer has a user interface with a 1.2-inch display. This small display makes printing a lot easier. It helps you to keep track of the pending tasks and to easily understand the error codes.
Print & Scan Properties
The standard printing speed for black is 8.8 impressions in a minute and for coloured it is 5 pages. The printing quality is pretty fine for the home and office users. But it may not fulfil the needs of the commercial users. The printing properties allow the user to print photos, documents, and high-resolution content. The manufacturer suggests using the original ink and accessories to ensure the best performance.
It can print up to 4800×1200 resolution and the scanning goes deep into 600×1200 dpi. The least recommended paperweight is 80 gsm and max it could take 275 gsm. Additionally, it also prints the photographs and images on the 4×6-inch photo sized laminated and matte paper. At the copier function, the G3010 can print up to 20 copies in a single go.
The printer uses the USB port to connect with the computer system. Ahead of that it also features wireless printing. The primary source is the Wi-Fi. And the secondary source is through using smartphones. Apps are available for both Android and iOS.
Cost of Ink
The original ink costs around Rs. 2,200 (Buy ink only from reputed sellers such as Appario Retail, CloudTail, etc...). The supported ink is GI-790 CYMB which could be acquired easily from the cannon online store and market dealers. As per Canon, G3010 can print up to 7000 pages of colour pages and 6000 pages of black and white prints from one full set of ink bottles. However, if the print preferences are set on higher resolution, the page count may reduce.
Warranty and OS Support
This printer comes with a limited 1-year warranty. The limited warranty means that only technical failure is covered. And damage caused because of a mishap or an accident would not be entertained. Further, the printer is fully supported by Microsoft Windows 7 and higher users. But there is yet no support available for the Mac OS. The Mac users would have to check the other variant, Canon G3000 printer.
