Canon PIXMA G1200 reviews

PIXMA G1200 MegaTank Inkjet Printer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Printer Couldn't wait to inbox and set up my new Canon Pixma G1200 Printer. I was sent this printer for free to review and the set up was a breeze...I was pleasantly surprised to see the how much ink the tanks could hold. The ink bottles were huge! This particular model is not wireless and must be connected by a USB cord to a PC. The quality of prints are superior to any printer I have ever owned. I even printed off a few photos and I was totally impressed. I don't have to refrain from printing anything trying to conserve ink anymore. The reservoir windows are located right on the front for viewing. No more running out of ink mid print project and just think of all the money you save! I've had the machine for two weeks now and have been using it daily, the ink levels haven't even budged. Canon really had the consumer in mind with this product, Thanks! I would totally recommend this product to anyone in need of a home printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect If you are a high and heavy user of ink - which I am, you would be foolish to use a cartridge based printer. I am thrilled with the quality but more than that I am glad to not spend all my hard earned cash at the office supply store for cartridges. I love this printer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Ink Capacity! My whole family was so excited to receive the Canon Pixma g1200 to try out, in exchange for our honest review. When it arrived, the printer was larger than I expected... I had to rearrange the computer desk for it to fit. Set up was quite easy, and my 5th grader loved pouring the ink into the storage wells. The ink storage is pretty impressive! I was skeptical about the claims on the box of up to 7000 copies on the same ink supply, but after seeing the capacity, I think they`re right. The copies are crisp and clean. My husband dislikes the wait time and my kids were surprised by the noise of printing. But, overall, I think it is a great printer. It also comes with great photo printing features. I look forward to many, many awesome copies with this Canon Pixma! Thank you, Canon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannon Pixma G1200 I was Blessed & very Graceful to receive a free Cannon G1200 for review and this Printer was OUTSTANDING. This is the BEST printer I ever had the chance to operate it is very efficient . I was amazed on how each printed page was a clear, crisp black print & sharp. Photos I printed was vivd & sharp plus it didn't have borders it was borderless. Putting ink in was located in the front of printer which was very convenient. It was very easy to do first, you remove top and squeeze bottle & close back. Ink has massive amount of ink 6,000 pages for color & 7,000 pages black & white & can last over a year or more which really save money on ink. This printer is efficient has a lot to offer easy to operate and has massive amount of ink to hold you for over a year of printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Sharp I should mention that I received a free sample for providing an open and honest review of the product. The Canon Pixma g1200 has been fun to use, and I've especially enjoyed the my image garden software that comes with it for photo printing. I've been very pleased with the easy of use and the speed of the printing. The set up probably took me all of 15-20 minutes when I first took it out of the box, which i don't consider to be a lot of time. The Canaon Pixma g1200 has a larger footprint on my desk than I expected and it isn't wi-fi enabled but otherwise I have nothing but good things to say and recommend this to anyone who does a lot of printing at home and needs a high quality product without expensive inks(the ink is refillable, less waste).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer I received the Canon Pixma in return for writing a review. Upon receiving the box first noticed its very light weight. You will need to either purchase or already have on hand a USB cable. Since we had one from a previous printer we were able to use that. Set up was pretty easy. The only issue we had was putting the ink into the tanks. We had some ink spill but it was easily cleaned up. Once the ink was all in the wells we were ready to plug it in. I think the ability to refill the mega tanks is a huge plus. The bottles are spill proof and easy to fill the tanks. Ink refills seem reasonable at $18 for black and $12 for each of the colors The initialization took about 5-6 minutes and it was rather noisy. All in all it took maybe 15-20 minutes to get everything connected and it online and ready to print. We've done a few black and color print outs and the colors are crisp, no run, quick to dry ink. All in all its a compact size printer with a big capacity of print jobs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic printer I received this printer for free in exchange for an honest review, and this is definitely my honest opinion! The printer is great, it has a sleek profile, I like how the paper is loaded from the top of the printer, and the ink is so cool! I've never experienced an ink system like the one in this printer, it is extremely satisfying to load the ink from the individual ink bottles and it seems to be more efficient than other ink cartridges because I don't believe any refill would have that amount of ink in it. It does a good job of printing documents in both color and black and white and seems like it would be able to crank out a lot of copies in a decent amount of time. I will say, however, that the printer did not come with a USB cord and does not connect to wifi. There isn't even an LCD screen, just 2 buttons to indicate power and alert. I was really surprised by this because I assumed that any printer these days would use wifi or at least connect to the internet with an ethernet cord. I'll have to get used to this aspect of it, but I think the efficiency of the printer will offset these detriments once I become more accustomed to it. I'm looking forward to using this printer for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality printer with great features Setting up the Canon PIXMA G1200 Printer was surprisingly simple with precise instructions that were easy to follow, assembly was quick and to the point, a necessity for us not so good assemblers. From unpacking, assembly and downloading the software it took a total of 15 mins. Some key functionalities I require in a printer are high-quality photo/image printing, speed, and long lasting ink usage. For images, the Image Garden software included with the printer, is one of the best features, a photo managing software that accommodates many different projects from ID photos to Calendar’s. Photos printed out with vibrate colors, detailed, no streaks, the quality of the printed photos are extremely good. I also like that you can place white carbon paper, or card stock of varying sizes and not encounter issues with paper or card stock getting stuck, which have happened numerous times with other printers. Printouts are relatively fast, I’m especially impressed with the speed when printing photos. I am looking forward to not having to replace ink every few months. It serves both personal and business needs. A feature that would have made this even better is Wi-Fi compatibility, although there are other Pixma printer models with Wi-Fi capabilities just not the G1200. What would be nice to see in later models is a digital counter to show approximately how many pages of printing is left, and a numerical visual aid to show the percentage of ink left until refill. Overall, the Canon PIXMA G1200 is efficient, produces quality prints, is well designed and a pleasantly quiet printer that is smaller, lighter and less bulky than many of its predecessors. I received the Canon PIXMA G1200 Printer as a part of the STARS research experience in exchange for my honest opinion.
