The Canon PIXMA MG4220 is a compact all-in-one inkjet with wireless support and excellent mobile and cloud printing, and it can reach ESAT speeds of up to 9.9 images per minute in black and 5.7 images per minute in color. High-capacity Canon MG4220 printer ink is available to reduce the cost per page.
Although it lacks faxing, the MG4220 can handle printing, scanning, and copying with ease. The control panel is easy to use, with a 2.5-inch color LCD providing previews of photos and access to menus. The unit also includes the PIXMA Cloud Link feature, which provides access to services like Google Picasa right from the device itself, for simple printing of web photos.
Along with more traditional features like automatic duplexing, the MG4220 also includes some very modern features like mobile device printing. It supports AirPrint for printing from Apple devices, and has Google Cloud Print support for printing from virtually any device with web access.
Despite its excellent wireless support, which is very easy to set up, the lack of a wired ethernet port could be a downside for some buyers, as well as the lack of an automatic document feeder. Photo quality is also not as good as some models in its class.
The use of a tricolor Canon MG4220 ink cartridge instead of discrete colors may lead to a little more waste, but it simplifies the process of replacing Canon MG4220 printer ink. In addition to the standard supplies, there are high-capacity PIXMA MG4220 ink cartridges available, with yields of up to 400 pages for color and 300 for black. Using the high-capacity PIXMA MG4220 ink will help to lower operating costs, even though they are a bit more expensive upfront.
Home users who want a compact and affordable all-in-one inkjet with modern features should find the PIXMA MG4220 very appealing. It's mobile and cloud support is worth upgrading from an older machine alone, as long as buyers don't need an ADF or an ethernet port.
