Canon Pixma G6050 Review

Canon Pixma G6050

It's not really astounding that the pattern for refillable ink tanks is developing when you consider the reserve funds that can be made over a cartridge-based framework.

The Canon Pixma G6050 coordinates four ink stores in a shockingly smaller three-in-one gadget and accompanies a liberal six jugs of ink in the case. That is sufficient to print 18,000 highly contrasting pages and 7,700 in shading. It has enough space to stack up 350 sheets of paper and can be effectively gotten to through a USB link or Wi-Fi with an instinctive cell phone application for cloud printing and examining. To put it plainly, it very much indicated for use in a little office that requirements to turn out bunches of reports and photographs.

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 containers of ink (three dark and three shading) that come in the case. Think about that and the Canon Pixma G6050 resembles a deal.

Plan and fabricate 

The Canon Pixma G6050 coordinates its four huge ink tanks into a shockingly minimal plan. There's plainly a plan advantage in getting rid of cumbersome plastic ink cartridges on the grounds that there's room inside for a genuinely profound 250-sheet fundamental paper plate. You can stack another 100 sheets in the back plate and this is the place photograph paper and envelopes ought to go.

It's consoling to see the genuine ink levels yourself instead of trusting that the printer will disclose to you that one of your cartridges is vacant. The tanks are very enormous, so you won't top off frequently. The fundamental paper cabinet additionally has a reasonable plastic window enabling you to see initially how much paper is in there.

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, yet a vital penance so as to pick up the ink tanks while holding the expense down. There's no SD Card opening or front USB port for a similar explanation. The A4 estimated scanner bed is on top and in the event that you don't generally require the scanner, at that point the more reasonable Pixma G5050 is basically a similar machine without the scanner.

Highlights and determinations 

Being a three-in-one gadget implies you can print, output and duplicate. There's no fax office, yet there are a lot of other key highlights. It can naturally print the two sides of the page for example, and it can deal with all sizes of paper up to A4. That incorporates reflexive photograph paper, envelopes and package names, which would all be able to be stacked into the back plate.

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 very own Pixma Cloud Link are on the whole accessible for simple cloud printing.

The print goals is 4800x1200 dpi, while examining is at 1200 x 2400 which are both sensibly high goals and guarantees solid replicating usefulness. The cited print speed is somewhat delayed at 13 ipm in mono and just 6 ipm in shading.

So what highlights are absent? All things considered, there's no ADF (programmed archive feeder) or fax and no NFC network or glimmer memory card space for picture takers. Tragically, 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 regularly utilize five or even six hues to make a photograph. For this situation, the dark ink is a color (as opposed to a color), which is extraordinary for content archives, however there's no extra dark color which is better for printing photos.

Arrangement and activity 

Setting up the Canon Pixma G6050 includes first fitting two fine inkjet cartridges, which appears to be amazing for a probably cartridge-less framework. Nonetheless, these two little trucks don't need to be supplanted.

When set up, you would then be able to pour in the ink from the containers gave. The spouts are molded 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 exhort putting away this thing on its side in the event that you need to return it ins enclose with ink the tanks.

Not at all like comparative Canon printers, the Pixma TS8050 for example, there's no arrangement wizard to assist you with associating with your remote system or print out test pages so as to check print head arrangement. Standard's partner application will get you associated with Wi-Fi, so you can utilize your cell phone to type in the Wi-Fi secret key, however it won't give you access to the printer's settings.

Lamentably, the interface is somewhat unintuitive contrasted with most present day printers and the two-line show is constraining. It's an instance of squinting at the little show and burnning through bunches of alternative utilizing the two cursor catches to discover and change each setting.

At the point when you load paper in the plate, or slip another sheet into the back plate, the presentation will request that you pick the paper type which is to some degree dreary utilizing the two cursor catches and on a few events we needed to kill the machine and on again to drive it to perceive the paper that was effectively stacked.


The Canon Pixma G6050 prints gradually, however consistently, turning out mono pages at around 13 pages for each moment. It prints discreetly and content reports look especially fresh and striking. The dark color ink utilized stands apart well, giving individual characters a fresh clearness directly down to extremely little point sizes. Pages of content rise with the consistency and quality you may anticipate from a laser printer, yet at a much more slow rate. Also, regarding cost per page, it really works out less expensive.

Shading records additionally show great consistency and detail. They rise 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 impeccably worthy. Photos, be that as it may, do look excessively curbed as far as shading. Blues and reds could be said to be more normal in appearance than numerous excessively dynamic inkjet printers. In any case, greens watch 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 do not have the shading constancy accomplished by Canon's five and six-shading frameworks.

Last decision 

Beside extravagances like NFC network and front ports for streak memory, the Canon Pixma G6050 is all around included with a decent scanner and auto duplexing. The minuscule showcase is a bit of baffling in the event that you have gotten used to a touchscreen interface and this printer is in no way, shape or form quick, yet it prints precisely and dependably and content archives look extraordinary. Photograph prints a fine as well, only not as distinctive as some inkjets can oversee. The principle advantage here then is the refillable ink tank framework which makes inkjet printing unmistakably more conservative than it at any point was with cartridges.
