The Canon G6020 Pixma MegaTank All in One Inkjet Printer is a great printer if you often print large quantities of materials. The MegaTanks allow you to refill the black ink tanks and color ink tanks when each needs to be filled; not when one color is empty and you need to replace the entire cartridge. This is why it is ranked as one of the best all in one printer units on the market.
The megatank ink bottles allow you to print approximate 7,000 pages per bottle, bringing the per page cost down to $0.0037 or $0.36 cost per every 100 pages printed.

Unlike the HP OfficeJet 3830 All-in-One Wireless Printer, the Canon Pixma does not use ink cartridges. While the HP is cheaper, the longevity you will get from the Canon Inkjet printers is great. The printer does come with the Canon print app allowing you to easily print from your smartphone or tablet. In addition the print quality is top-notch, with borderless printing possible on all photo paper sizes. Overall, the performance of the Canon Pixma is well rated.
The design on the Canon Pixma G6020 paper tray, or input tray, is sturdier than both the HP OfficeJet 3830 and the Brother Monochrome Laser Printer. The Canon has a control panel which allows you to access all the important attributes of the machines, including the ink levels. It’s print speed is moderate at 13 ipm. In addition, the Canon Pixma easily connects to Apple AirPrint and Androids via Mopria Print. It utilizes Google cloud for connectivity and printing applications.
The Canon is comparable in price to the HP ENVY 5055 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer. In addition, its high page output for each bottle of ink, makes keeping your printer working longer much easier. While you will pay more for the device upfront, you will quickly find that you are replacing the ink less frequently and at a lower cost than printers that utilize a cartridge. Lastly, the paper feeder can hold up to 350 pages, which is a bit more than the most popular printers. This feature is nice, because you do not have to fill the paper tray as frequently as you do with other devices.
Canon Pixma G6020 Wrap Up
While the investment in a Canon Pixma G6020 MegaTank All in One Printer is on the higher side, you will save a lot of money on ink. This is a high selling point for those who use a printer often. Yes, the setup instructions do leave something to be desired, but once you get the printer up and running, you can print with great ease. The all in one printer is compatible with all devices, print apps, and is wi fi, which is another positive attribute. Overall, the Canon G6020 is quite a good buy.
