The Canon PIXMA MG2420 is a photo all-in-one inkjet printer that offers mostly basic features, but its low price makes it worth a look for home users. It can print at ESAT speeds of 8 pages per minute for black and 4 pages per minute in color, which isn't overly impressive. The cost of PIXMA MG2420 printer ink supplies is also a little high for such an affordable model.
Of course, it's not all bad news. The MG2420 is quite compact, so it will appeal to home users who are tight on space. It measures 5.8x16.8x12.1 inches, with a weight of only 7.6 pounds that doesn't include the Canon MG2420 ink supplies. A single USB port is the only connection option, so the lack of wireless support might be an issue for certain buyers.
When it comes to multifunction features, its scanning and copying functions are fairly basic. Users get a simple flatbed scanner that can handle pages up to 8.5x11.7 inches in size. The limited control panel means many users will probably opt for the included software for most tasks. The My Image Garden software does provide a convenient way to organize and print scanned photos, with fairly solid editing features included as well.
The system uses only two PIXMA MG2420 printer ink cartridges: one black and one combined tricolor supply. This means potentially replacing a Canon MG2420 ink cartridge before all of the colors are empty, leading to more waste. Supplies are also a bit expensive to replace.
Although the PIXMA MG2420 provides a fairly strong set of all-in-one inkjet features in its compact design, it is difficult to recommend. Its print speeds are unimpressive, and the cost of Canon MG2420 ink makes it an expensive model to maintain. Its limited control panel may also prove frustrating for many users.
