The Canon Pixma G2010 is a refillable ink tank all-in-one printer especially meant for high volume printing purposes. The printer is meant for small businesses, schools and alike where printing a lot is a major requirement on a day-to-day basis. The G2010 can print, scan and copy with speeds of up to 8 pages per minute in black and 5 pages per minute in color. Photos can be printed in approximately one minute.
The printer sports a maximum resolution of 4800 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) and has a total of 1,472 nozzles that spew out the high-resolution images onto the paper. Three color tanks and one black tank make up the printer’s ink reservoir with each color (CMY) holding up 70ml and black (K) can hold 135ml of ink. The ink is supplied in a bottle and all one has to do is simply open the lid of the tanks and empty out the bottle. The ink tanks are visible from the front to help the consumer physically see the level of ink inside each tank and refill or top-up the ink whenever he requires. While the black ink tank is on the left, the three color tanks are on the right. Each tank is connected to the print head via long pipes. The print head is also a replaceable component so the consumer can replace it when it goes bad or dry. The print heads are placed on the moving arm of the printer.
The printer has a top-loading paper foldable tray that can hold up to 100 sheets at a time. The front output tray is foldable but does not close the compartment completely which allows for dust settling inside. The printer does not feature duplex printing, which leaves the user to manually flip the paper for dual-side printing. Adding a duplex printing mechanism is a huge requirement to save on paper today and Canon could have enrolled this printer with the same design too.
Moving away from the printer, the MFD has a built-in flatbed scanner but does not sport an ADF. The scanner has an optical resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi @24-bit and can scan A4 documents in colour at the speed of around 32 seconds. The printer and scanner together create a copier machine which can scan and print black copies at will. Multiple copies can print in one go, up to 20 copies in each batch.
The Canon Pixma G2010 runs on a regular USB 2.0 port connected to the PC. There’s no wireless connectivity or Ethernet port which could put this MFD as a network printer, making it just short of an office or business printer. The printer is built with a rugged all-plastic body and has a matte finished exterior.
The printer is pretty simple and straight-forward to use and maintain by any common user with minimal to zero tech knowledge. The best part is the large ink tanks which will give the consumer a relief from expensive cartridge replacements and the transparent ink tanks which allow the user to know when a refill or top-up is required.
