Introduction

Due to the sudden growth in the printer industry, it has been really hard to pick the best printer for any given amount. The current ink tank printer trend has made it more complicated since most of the printers have a very similar feature set and printing properties.

In this article, I will compare three medium-price ranged printers: HP 530, Epson L5190 and Canon G4010. These three printers are a few popular printers in the ‘below Rs 20,000’ price range. Without wasting much time let us get into HP 530 vs Epson L5190 vs Canon G4010 printer comparison.

Since these printers have above average price, the printer has to accommodate some advanced features. To accommodate these advanced features manufacturers had to tweak the design of these printers without compromising their visual appeal.

  • The Epson EcoTank L5190 printer looks somewhat similar to its predecessors, the only difference is the user interface placed in front. This printer comes with an ADF tray at the top. Epson L5190 printer weighs around 5 kg.
  • The Canon PIXMA G4010 printer design looks very similar to its predecessors. However, you can find some differences.

All of these printers are multi-function printers and all of them have all the basic printer functions but few of them have some additional features like faxing options.

This printer has a page yield of 8,000 pages for colour prints and 6,000 pages for black and white (monochrome) prints.

Ink Tank Features

ADF and Duplex Features

ADF and duplex printing are two of the commonly confused features in printers. First let me explain the basics: Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a feature that will allow us to scan and/or copy a page(s) automatically through a mechanical feeder. When we place sheets to be scanned or copied in the feeder, it will suck in one page at a time and scan both sides of that page so you can copy the file. Duplex printing or two-sided printing is a feature that will allow users to print both sides of a sheet. There are two types: automatic duplex printing which will allow us to print both sides without any manual interventions, and manual duplex printing which requires us to manually turn over the sheets in the tray. This feature normally does not require any additional paper trays.

  • HP 530 printer does not have the automatic duplex function, so we have to manually do two-sided printing. But this printer does have ADF feature and the feeder tray has a capacity of 35 sheets.
  • Epson L5190 printer does not have the automatic duplex function, so we have to manually do two-sided printing. But this printer does have ADF feature and the feeder tray has a capacity of 30 sheets.
  • The Canon G4010 printer does not have the automatic duplex function, so we have to manually do two-sided printing. But this printer does have ADF feature and the feeder tray has a capacity of 20 sheets.

Wireless Connectivity Features

Except for HP 530 printer all other printers have only WiFi connectivity. In this category, HP 530 clearly wins over others with Bluetooth LE connectivity options. Bluetooth LE is the latest wireless feature that will allow printers to receive print commands even when they are on low power/sleep mode.

  • HP 530 supports dual-band WiFi which supports two frequency ranges (2.4GHz and 5GHz) which will reduce data collision and smooth data communications. This printer also supports Bluetooth LE connectivity which will allow users to use the printer even if it is on sleep mode.
  • Epson L5190 and Canon G4010 only support single-band (2.4GHz) WiFi connectivity and has no Bluetooth connectivity.

User Interface

All three printers have display features and the menu options are pretty much advanced compared to budget printers.

  • Among these three, HP 530 has the most advanced UI. This printer has a touch display as its user interface, which makes the process far easier for the user. But there is this prevailing issue of touch sensor damage.
  • Epson L5190 has a colour display and a comprehensive set of buttons as its user interface.
  • Canon G4010 has the least advanced UI. This printer has a segmented display and a comprehensive set of buttons as its UI. The only advantage I saw in this printer’s UI is that it is placed conveniently on the top.

OS Support and Warranty

All of the three printers support major operating systems, namely MS Windows and macOS. Make sure you’re using recent versions of these operating systems.

As for the warranty, HP 530 and Epson L5190 provides coverage of up to one year or 30,000 prints (whichever comes first). Canon G4010 gives warranty coverage of up to one year or 15,000 prints (whichever comes first).

Conclusion

The medium price range printers are a competitive section in our marketplace; new printers are releasing every month in this price range. I just picked three popular printers (according to users) in this price range and compared them according to their features. I hope my article helped you to make a purchase decision.

I love computer devices of all kinds! I am particularly interested in productivity devices such as printers. I remember my first printer back in 2008, which was an awesome experience for me. I learned a lot of things after that experience. I intend to share my experience through this blog. That way I can make others understand the nuances and help them to make the right purchase decision.

    interested in an ADF inktank printer which has automatic duplex printing. It seems, such a printer doesn’t exist. Tried searching your blogs but couldn’t find an answer.
