Students, families and first time printer owners will appreciate the Canon Pixma MG3150 as an ideal machine for everyday printing whilst delivering quality results.
Those quality results can be produced quickly with print speeds of 9.2ipm for monochrome documents and 5.0ipm in the case of colour documents. The quality of printing is assured due to a print resolution of up to 4800dpi which will deliver the type of professional looking photo prints you will want to keep.
Wi-Fi connectivity is in-built with the Canon Pixma MG3150 so users can enjoy the flexibility of being able to print from and scan to mobile devices when using the Easy-PhotoPrint App. The photo features extend to Canon’s Full HD Movie Print which gives users the opportunity to capture striking images from your home movies. These photographs can be enhanced further with the use of Fun Filter Effects through Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint EX software.
For printing from the web, Easy-WebPrint EX will help users combine clippings from various web pages and collate these on one single document. The use of this feature should see the amount of paper waste reduced.
To make further paper cost savings, the Canon Pixma MG3150 has an auto duplex function that will let users print on both sides of the paper, potentially halving the amount of money spent on replacement paper. Energy savings can also be made as a result of the machine’s Auto Power Off feature which switches the printer off when it’s not been in use for a certain period of time.
Canon’s Pixma MG3150 All-in-One Colour Printer is not the newest printer in the series, but it is a very reliable, fast, and cheap printer. It prints, scans, and copies, and it makes use of Canon’s FastFront system.
This system allows users to quickly and easily replace the ink cartridges and load paper. Everything is done from the front of the machine, making it more compact and allowing users to keep it near a wall or on a shelf.
The MG3150 has print speeds of up to 9.2 pages a minute in black or 5 pages per minute in colour. Images can be printed up to a clear, detailed 4800dpi, and the printer can print photos of various sizes. A 10 x 15cm full-colour photo can be printed in less than a minute. Wireless printing is also available from tablets, laptops, PCs, and smartphones.
The device’s scanner can scan up to 1200 x 2400dpi, which can be done with the touch of a button.
The Auto Scan Mode automatically detects the size of the original, then scans and saves it with all of the appropriate settings without any extra work. It can also be scanned directly to a memory card or USB drive, or it can be emailed right from the printer.
