Some users prefer a more affordable price over faster speeds and advanced features, and they are the exact target the Canon PIXMA MG2220 all-in-one inkjet printer seems to have been designed for. With ESAT speeds of 8.4 images per minute for black and 4.8 images per minute for color, it is a little on the slow side, and the features set is a little slim, but its low price is appealing. Prices for OEM Canon MG2220 printer ink can be a bit high, however.
One of the more attractive features of the unit for home users is its compact design. It can print, scan, and copy, but still manages to measure just 6x17.7x12 inches, and without the PIXMA MG2220 printer ink installed, it weighs only 11.7 pounds. The control panel is simple, and the lack of a true LCD screen means no photo previews.
One area where the machine really excels is in its output quality. Reviewers note accurate colors and solid detail. At its highest output settings, the unit can reach a resolution of up to 4800x1200 dpi, so users can expect great photo output and decent text documents. Borderless printing at common sizes is included, and a bonus feature called "Print Your Days" can print photos from a Facebook account for a hard-copy chronicle of important events throughout the year.
Printer ink prices can get expensive, and the costs for Canon MG2220 ink cartridges start to add up. The combined color PIXMA MG2220 ink cartridge has a capacity of 400 pages, while the black supply can provide up to 300 pages before expiring. The combined color makes replacement easier, but can lead to wasted Canon MG2220 ink if some colors run out before others.
Buyers who want an affordable and compact inkjet printer that can handle basic copy and scan needs should find the Canon MG2220 a good match. Its output quality is solid, but users who do a lot of printing might find its slow speeds and high running costs to send them looking elsewhere.
