We encountered just one paper jam during the test and effectively imprinted onto envelopes and stickers without an issue. Duplex printing is moderate, yet effective and it’s not just constrained to A4 paper. It can likewise duplex print A5 and B5 pages.
Shading archives likewise show great consistency and detail. They develop at the even more slow pace of around six pages for each moment and the hues look somewhat quieted contrasted with different inkjets, yet they are superbly satisfactory. Photos, be that as it may, do look excessively stifled as far as shading. Blues and reds could be said to be more normal in appearance than numerous excessively lively inkjet printers. In any case, greens glance somewhat cleaned out and blacks show up rather dark. The degree of detail is high and in different regards, photograph prints look fine on photograph paper, they simply come up short on the shading loyalty accomplished by Canon’s five and six-shading frameworks.
The Canon Pixma G6050 prints gradually, yet consistently, turning out mono pages at around 13 pages for every moment. It prints discreetly and content archives look especially fresh and intense. The dark shade ink utilized stands apart well, giving individual characters a fresh clearness directly down to little point sizes. Pages of content rise with the consistency and quality you may anticipate from a laser printer, though at a much more slow rate. What’s more, regarding cost per page, it really works out less expensive.
At the point when you load paper in the plate, or slip another sheet into the back plate, the showcase will request that you pick the paper type which is fairly dull utilizing the two cursor catches and on two or three events we needed to kill the machine and on again to compel it to perceive the paper that was accurately stacked.
Sadly, the interface is somewhat unintuitive contrasted with most present day printers and the two-line show is restricting. It’s an instance of squinting at the little showcase and spinning through loads of choice utilizing the two cursor catches to discover and change each setting.
In contrast to comparable Canon printers, the Pixma TS8050 for example, there’s no arrangement wizard to assist you with interfacing with your remote system or print out test pages so as to check print head arrangement. Ordinance’s buddy application will get you associated with Wi-Fi, so you can utilize your cell phone to type in the Wi-Fi secret phrase, yet it won’t give you access to the printer’s settings.
When set up, you would then be able to pour in the ink from the jugs gave. The spouts are formed so you can fill each tank to the top without spilling a drop. Be that as it may, it is conceivable to empty an inappropriate shading into an inappropriate tank, so be cautious. The tanks are stoppered with an elastic seal, despite the fact that we wouldn’t prompt putting away this thing on its side on the off chance that you need to return it ins confine with ink the tanks.
Setting up the Canon Pixma G6050 includes first fitting two fine inkjet cartridges, which appears to be astonishing for an evidently cartridge-less framework. Nonetheless, these two little trucks don’t need to be supplanted.
So what highlights are absent? All things considered, there’s no ADF (programmed record feeder) or fax and no NFC availability or blaze memory card space for picture takers. Unfortunately, there’s not in any case a front USB port for printing straightforwardly from a thumb drive either. It’s a pity there are just four inks accessible as well, as other Canon printers frequently utilize five or even six hues to make a photograph. Right now, dark ink is a shade (as opposed to a color), which is incredible for content archives, yet there’s no extra dark color which is better for printing photos.
The print goals is 4800×1200 dpi, while checking is at 1200 x 2400 which are both sensibly high goals and guarantees solid duplicating usefulness. The cited print speed is fairly delayed at 13 ipm in mono and just 6 ipm in shading.
There are USB and Ethernet ports at the back, and with Wi-Fi worked in, you can likewise associate remotely through your system or utilizing Wi-Fi Direct. AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, PictBridge and Canon’s own Pixma Cloud Link are on the whole accessible for simple cloud printing.
Being a three-in-one gadget implies you can print, sweep and duplicate. There’s no fax office, yet there are a lot of other key highlights. It can consequently print the two sides of the page for example, and it can deal with all sizes of paper up to A4. That incorporates lustrous photograph paper, envelopes and bundle names, which would all be able to be stacked into the back plate.
Not at all like Canon’s other Pixma printers, which are commanded by an enormous shading touchscreen, the new G arrangement has just a two-line mono LCD in its tilting control board. It’s a baffling advance in reverse, however a fundamental penance so as to pick up the ink tanks while holding the expense down. There’s no SD Card space or front USB port for a similar explanation. The A4 estimated scanner bed is on top and on the off chance that you don’t generally require the scanner, at that point the more moderate Pixma G5050 is basically a similar machine without the scanner.
It’s consoling to see the real ink levels yourself as opposed to trusting that the printer will disclose to you that one of your cartridges is unfilled. The tanks are very enormous, so you won’t top off frequently. The principle paper cabinet likewise has a reasonable plastic window permitting you to see initially how much paper is in there.
The Canon Pixma G6050 incorporates its four huge ink tanks into a shockingly reduced plan. There’s unmistakably a plan advantage in getting rid of massive plastic ink cartridges in light of the fact that there’s room inside for a genuinely profound 250-sheet principle paper plate. You can stack another 100 sheets in the back plate and this is the place photograph paper and envelopes ought to go.
At around £300 (about US$380, AU$550) the Canon Pixma G6050 looks extravagant close by other office inkjets with more highlights, until you think about the six jugs of ink (three dark and three shading) that come in the case. Think about that and the Canon Pixma G6050 resembles a deal.
