Canon Pixma G2000 Design and Setup
Canon G2000 has a pure boxy looks far from aesthetic imagination. But despite being the type of printer it is, all the variants of the new G series ink tank printers are made such with one thing in mind – secure the ink-tank.The box (Canon G2000) is partitioned in a horizontal plane, the upper part housing the scanner assembly and the lower, printing machinery and tanks. The fact that the tanks are housed inside the lower section of the printer, alongside the working machinery contains the printer in itself. That is one of a kind construction for an A4 size machine that, though makes the printer slightly big, but properly “contained”.
Canon Pixma G2000 Design Setup
G2000 has no touch panel or a display of any kind which means you cannot customize your photocopies or perform other standalone funtions for maintenance. Not having to setup wireless connection also saves the need of it (a screen is missing on G3000 too, though it has wireless functionality) and you would need to hook it to a computer every time you need a print. It also misses out on LAN connection so infact, there’re only two wires seen at back – the USB and power cable.
Four buttons are placed beside the scanner flap to control its basic functions; with three different color LEDs signaling various happenings – printing error, paper jam, no paper or busy in maintenance. The input tray is flap at the back where you can stand a stack of 100 plain sheets.
Out of the box, the printer needs to be fitted with the cartridges and ink bottles poured into the tanks. All you have to make sure you put the right cartridge and ink in the right place. Setting up an ink-tank printer is slightly more complicated than normal inkjet printer, but you get a huge price benefit.
Cost per page
However be the design, rest assured the Canon ink tank series is one cost effective printer when it comes to ink use, especially when you are mainly concerned with printing full page photos on glossy pages.
Canon Pixma G2000 Cost per page
Canon G2000 refill inks are made from a mixture of both dye based and pigment based ink. All the Canon G series printers ship with four ink bottles that have a said yield of 7000 pages. Each ink bottle costs less than Rs 500 and is available at offline stores. Black ink bottle has double the capacity so we couldn’t really finish it up during the review period. Totaling up the price for three color inks, a color printout cost you anywhere between 50p-Rs 23 (full page photo, based on approximate ink level measurement) which is much less than ink cartridge based Pixma color printers. And G2000 is no less on quality of the prints.
