WHAT WE LIKED CANON PIXMA G3020

Canon Pixma G3020 showed numerous potential utilities within its design and functioning, which easily make it a recommendable model for anyone looking for an inkjet printer within this budget. A few of the highlights that we find worth mentioning are mentioned in the pointers underneath : –

  • The printer has a polylingual interface with over 30 languages included, making it extremely useful for organizations and home setups where the user’s first language is not English. 
  • The printing machine runs on a mere 16 W when connected via USB to a computer system, its highest power consumption. It doesn’t impact the electricity bill, making it a very cost-efficient model for usage at home and small investment businesses.
  • The printer can input and create quality prints upon papers of different sizes – including the standard A4, B5, A6, A5, LTR, Foolscap, B-Officio, LGL, M-Officio, Envelopes, and Card-sized sheets of paper.
  • The printing process isn’t merely wireless but also versatile in its connectivity. It allows printing to be possible from various devices like your iPad, tablet, and even your smartphone using freeware which is very convenient to download.

WHAT WE DID NOT LIKE CANON PIXMA G3020 

While the printer has a wide array of facilities and attractive features, the printer has very few drawbacks which we think are essential for any customer to keep in mind before considering a purchase of it: –

  1. While the printer is not very heavy, it certainly has a slightly bulky exterior and requires a specific home area to be installed and used consistently. 
  2. The printing results may become smudgy or reduce in quality after 6 months of using the same set of inks.
  3. The printer’s performance also gets impacted by the atmosphere around it. The level of dampness or heat around the printer may alter its results to varying degrees.
  4. If the printer goes out of production someday, its various chassis parts would only be available with an official Canon service centre for not more than 5 years. Thus, it is not a timeless investment and might need to be replaced at some point in time.

If you are confused, You must check the latest model of Canon G series. It has some cool features with best print quality. The Canon PIXMA G6050 is one of best in G series. Although after Canon G3020, an upgraded model was launched and it was named PIXMA G3060. Honestly, I found no major difference at all between G3020 and G3060.

FINAL VERDICT

Canon Pixma G3020 is undoubtedly a revelation in the world of printing! Its marketing as a printer which makes the printing process cheaper and simpler, is true to its word. It most certainly is not very portable to carry around and still requires to be stationed, but with its wireless printing technology, it doesn’t need to have a PC connected to it anymore.

One may give a print command to it from a different room using their mobile device, and it would work like a charm.

Canon PIXMA G3020 is recommended for those who have regular work with printing involved, like advertisers, campaigners, and even homemakers who might want to promote their businesses, as it doesn’t incur any high costs on power consumption and gives a long, durable, and high-quality printing performance which surely wouldn’t disappoint you.
