Boarding passes, pictures from family vacations, photocopies of vital documents – no need to dash to the nearest printing store, anymore. Launched recently, the affordable printer Canon Pixma MG3070S is an all-in-one solution which doesn’t cost heavy bucks. Enabled with Wi-Fi, this multifunction printer is ideal for homes and small offices.
Pleasant Personality at a Tempting Price
Adding to the Pixma series of inkjets, Canon Pixma MG3070S is a versatile performer which prints, copies, scans and can do this wirelessly, producing a remarkable quality of prints at a price of merely Rs. 3,995. It sits comfortably on a study table and can easily be disguised behind heaps of peripherals due to its plain matte-style black colour. The shutter to flatbed scanner as well as the paper tray seem feeble and bend easily.
Complicated First Setup
The package comes with standard guides and paperwork, a USB Type-A to Type-B cable, power adapter, and CD for installation of drivers. The process of connecting the Pixma MG3070S is time-consuming and setting up the printer for wireless commands, especially, is cumbersome. You must install Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY App from the Google Play/Apple App Store to initialize wireless and cloud printing.
Bring Striking Colours to Paper
Canon Pixma MG3070S outsteps expectations by producing scans, prints and photocopies with rich colours and generous sharpness. Pictures have decent saturation and hues close to real life. One cannot, however, expect speeds of an enterprise printer. Printing black & white documents under our test conditions consumed 15 seconds per page while each coloured page took approximately 29 seconds. Users could be set back due to the turbulent sounds during printing. It uses CIS (Contact Image Sensor) method, and scans at 100 dpi, 300 dpi and above 300 dpi expended eight, 14 and 52 seconds during our test run.
Wireless Printing at Fingertips
Canon’s Print Inkjet/SELPHY App furnishes an array of features to get prints and scans by nudging options in the main menu. Dedicated options allow photo or document printing with customizations for print size and quality. Canon Pixma MG3070S also supports Cloud Printing and Pixma Cloud Link which allows users to print directly from online services like Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox, Twitter etc. Users can obtain scans directly on their mobile devices using this proprietary app. Further, users can also order printing of albums via the app.
Cost-effective Setup for all Needs
Ink Cartridges are economically priced at Rs. 746 (coloured) and Rs. 499 (black), making the Canon Pixma MG3070S a delight for the pocket. There’s no USB plug ‘n play, however, for printing directly from a thumb drive or external hard drive. It can be an excellent secondary or backup printing equipment.
