THE BOTTOM LINE

The six-ink Canon Pixma G620 prints extremely well, especially for photos, at some of the lowest running costs in the business. Its low speed and missing automatic document feeder disqualify it for office work, but it’s a great value for families.

MSRP $299.99

PROS
    • Excellent print quality, especially photos
    • Very low running costs
    • Strong software bundle and robust mobile device support
CONS
    • Last-century control panel
    • No automatic document feeder (ADF)
    • Slow printing

It’s easy to find a bulk-ink printer with the familiar cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK) quartet, but finding an ink-tank- rather than cartridge-based inkjet with six inks for superior photo quality has been difficult, prohibitively expensive, or both. Canon aims to change that with the Pixma G620 Wireless MegaTank Photo All-in-One Printer, which gets its tank refills from bottles. At $299.99, it’s half the price of the Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8500 Wireless Color All-in-One Supertank. Versus that Epson, the Canon is slow and short on features, so it doesn’t join it (or the wide-format EcoTank Photo ET-8550) as an Editors’ Choice award winner. But the Pixma prints terrific-looking borderless photos at sizes up to 8.5 by 11 inches for pennies, making it a great value for families and home offices that churn out, say, the occasional work-related document and up to a few hundred photos each month.
