Some Quick Background
The Canon PIXMA G4210 is an affordable printer for small offices and business owners, and it is built to last for ages to come. During our Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, we will take a look at why this is one of the best cheap all-in-one printers on our list.
Back in the day, several printer companies tried to offer cost-efficient printers with an ink tank that could easily last for up to two years without any need for a refill. However, the majority of early-era ink tank printers lagged in other areas and offered an overall low level of performance. Well, in our Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, we will see that Canon PIXMA G4210 is not only cost-efficient but also offers the best of the modern world printing services at your disposal.
This cheap all-in-one printer is perfect for small business owners, families, and students who are tired of having to refill the cartridges every other day, and want to save money on ink costs. Moreover, if you are looking for an efficient and modern printer with Wi-Fi and mobile support without driving up your printing costs, this is the printer for you.
Canon PIXMA G4210 Review 2020
Let’s officially begin our Canon PIXMA G4210 review by discussing the perks offered by this printer. While it does offer a wide array of similar services as some of the most modern inkjet printers, there are some benefits and advantages that help Canon PIXMA G4210 take the lead.
Low Ink Costs
Let’s start our Canon PIXMA G4210 Review by taking a look at the first and foremost important benefit of using this printer; the low ink costs. Yes, Canon PIXMA G4210 is designed to offer low ink costs. If you are looking for a solution to reduce your ink costs, this all-in-one printer is the answer. If you buy this printer brand-new, Canon will offer enough ink for 18,000 black pages and 7,000 color pages for the first time. I think this will last for two years, at least.
Additionally, for this Canon PIXMA G4210 review, I asked around for the ink tank prices from the market for this printer. According to my estimate, it will cost you three-tenths of a cent per black-and-white text page and less than 1 cent for color pages. That’s a price that’s hard to beat, even for the best laser printers.
Are you looking for a modern printer that will save your ink costs and offer multiple features and options at your fingertips? Well, look no more. The Canon PIXMA G4210 printer offers a wide array of useful features. For my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, I test all the features of this printer, such as:
- Print color and monochromatic documents
- Scan documents
- Fax documents
- Mobile support available
- Automatic document feeder
Moreover, this is a relatively modern ink tank printer that allows connectivity to Wi-Fi, personal computer, and Ethernet at the same time. You can also download the Canon print app and print documents over the Wi-Fi without any problems.
Additionally, when I tried to print photos, I figured out that this printer also offers a built-in photo enhancement function that increases the level of color saturation and print details.
Borderless Photo Prints
Are you tired of having to print pictures with annoying black and white borders on the side? Well, Canon PIXMA G4210 offers a dynamic print resolution of 4800 x 1200 DPI for all your color images, and it also offers borderless photo printing capabilities that look beautiful on the paper.
While doing my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, I tried the borderless photo printing option and was pleased to see the beautiful full-paper photo prints. You no longer have to trim the sides of your picture prints in order to get what you want. You can simply select the option “borderless photo print,” and this printer will automatically print out a dynamic and well-saturated beautiful picture without any annoying borders.
Durable Home-Office Printer
Are you looking to buy a robust and durable all-in-one printer for your home? Are you worried that your kids will damage the printer, and you will have to pay an additional amount for repairs? Well, during my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, I found out that the overall construction of Canon PIXMA G4210 is extremely durable and sturdy, and it can be used without worrying about any damage, water spills, or wear and tear.
During my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, I found out that this printer also comes with a list of cons, just like every other printer on the market. Let’s take a look at some of the disadvantages of Canon PIXMA G4210.
With its current price tag, this printer may seem a little expensive for small business owners and families. For my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, I had to buy a brand-new Canon PIXMA G4210, and it cost me quite a bit of money. However, you have to keep in mind that this printer significantly reduces the overall ink costs associated with cartridges, and offers 30 times more ink than standard cartridges at a fraction of the price.
Nevertheless, the purchase cost was a bit too much considering that this printer offers all the modern options as some of the most modern, yet cheaper printers. The high purchase cost may be a red flag for you if you are looking for a cheap all-in-one printer and do not care much about the ink costs.
The high purchase cost may also be a turn-off for families who do not have to print hundreds of prints every month. Therefore, the reduced ink costs do not mean much to them, and comparatively cheaper printers may be better for these families.
Small Paper Tray
If you are trying to buy an all-in-one printer for your office needs, the Canon PIXMA G4210 may not be right for you. For this Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, I tried to fill up the paper tray and test the paper tray capacity. To my disappointment, it only allowed 100 pages at a time. This is quite low and disappointing compared to some modern all-in-one printers that offer a paper tray capacity of hundreds or even a thousand pages at a time.
Therefore, if you are trying to purchase this Canon PIXMA G4210 printer for your office, you may have to refill the tray multiple times during the day. This is one of the biggest drawbacks and cons that I discovered during my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review.
Yes, this is yet another disadvantage that I discovered during my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review. The Canon PIXMA G4210 printer measures 7.7 by 17.5 by 13 inches (HWD) in dimensions. This is a big size for a modern-day printer. Moreover, this printer also weighs 16 pounds, which might make it hard for some people to relocate this printer or adjust its location easily. However, this can be easily ignored, as this printer comes with ink tank capabilities for ink-efficient mechanisms.
Canon PIXMA G4210 Review | The Bottom Line
During my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, I found out that this printer is suitable for small business owners and families who want to cut down on ink costs. However, the bulky size, high purchase price, and a smaller paper tray may turn you away if you want to use this printer hundreds of times daily.
If you are looking for alternatives, you may be enticed by the amazing HP OfficeJet 3830 All-in-One Printer. This printer basically offers all the same amenities offered by Canon PIXMA G4210, but it comes at a lower purchase price. Moreover, this printer is also lightweight and compact, which makes it ideal for small spaces.
On the other hand, if you are interested in Canon PIXMA G4210, and you have finished my Canon PIXMA G4210 Review, you must know that once you have found a suitable place for this printer, it will last longer than the majority of modern printers in terms of ink and lifespan. It is designed to be reliable, sturdy, and cut down on ink costs with the help of an ink tank.
