Canon Pixma MG4120 Reviews– Canon Pixma MG4120 Color Inkjet Multifunction (print/copy/scan) is one of the cheapest MFP, featuring paper-saving automatic double-sided printing. It also prints nicely at a reasonable rate. For a low-cost MFP, color ink costs are lower than average, so photos and Web pages can be printed relatively inexpensively. However, black ink is expensive, so printing the daily letters and semester papers is more expensive than it is common.
You can connect the Pixma mg 4120 directly to your PC via USB or connect to the network using integrated Wi-Fi. The flip 2.4 inch LCD screen of this device is easy to read and is mostly easy to use for printers. However, Canon needs to make a selection using the three “function ” buttons. Moving your finger with that button wastes time and effort. OK button and four-way cursor control is sufficient. The Pixma mg 4120 has an SD card and Memory stick slot for photo printing or scanning off-road.
The 4120 of the Pixma MG paper handling function is suitable for home use. There is one 100-sheet letter/Legal input tray on the front of the unit and a 50-sheet output tray directly above it. The device has no automatic document feeder for A4/letter size scanners, but it has automatic duplex printing for hassle-proof duplex printing. The lid of the scanner is equipped with a telescope to accommodate thicker materials.
The output of the Pixma mg 4120 is similar in quality to that found in other Canon Pixma G series printers. If the text is sharp and not a laser, it is sharp. Color graphics have an orange skew that makes your face look black as a spray, but it also helps with warm-feeling landscapes and still-in-the-water. The photo details are rendered nicely.
Speed is good for everyday tasks and odd photos. In our test, the Pixma 4120 was printed on a PC at 6.5 pages per minute, and a 7.1 p m text page on the Mac. Photos of snapshot size were printed on regular paper at 2.6 p m, with 1.2 p m on photo paper. The average size of printed PDF pages and full-page photos on a Mac is double. Scanning and copying at normal and high resolution is fairly fast. If you have any questions, the performance of the Pixma 4120 is consistent with the numbering rules of the MG series. It is faster than the MG2120 and MG 3120 and is slower than MG6120 and the latest MG 5220.
Like the brethren, the Pixma mg 4120 has a more than average black ink cost. PG-240XL Extra Large black cartridge price is $21 and is 300 pages or 7 cents per page. PG-240XXL Black cartridges with a cost of 38, 600 pages slightly reduce costs by 6.3 cents per page. On the other hand, colors are relatively inexpensive. The price of the integrated color CL-241XL is $30 and is 400 pages or 7.5 cents per page. The four-color pages using PG-240XXL and CL-241XL are 13.8 cents, and the average cost of an inkjet MFP is approximately 13.8 cents. Using a 3-color cartridge (including cyan, magenta, and yellow) should replace the entire cartridge, even if the ink remains in a different color.
If you are looking for a low cost alternative to black ink, it is worth considering both HP Photosmart 6510 E-all-in-one ($150) and Brother MFC-J625DW (130$). However, the Pixma MG 4120 has all the bits that are otherwise competent and the price is reasonable for pages and photos in mixed colors.
