Canon Pixma MG3220

The Good The Canon Pixma MG3220 has Apple AirPlay wireless compatibility that eliminates installation speed bumps, and Canon's versatile imaging software to help you edit and organize your snapshot photos before printing.

The Bad Depending on your output frequency, the two-cartridge ink bay could boost the overall cost of ownership.

The Bottom Line Boasting Apple AirPrint, automatic double-sided printing, and impressive performance for the price, the Canon Pixma MG3200 is a fine choice for shoppers looking for an inexpensive printer.

Review

Canon Pixma MG3220

Editors' note: This review cannibalizes content from CNET's review of the Pixma MG2220, a printer with many of the same features.

The $80 Canon Pixma MG3220 is only $10 more than the Pixma MG2220, but the additional money goes far, netting you useful features like wireless connectivity, easy installation through Apple AirPrint, an autoduplexer for saving money on double-sided prints, and mobile snapshot printing from iOS devices using the Canon iEPP application.

You also get more support from the company, with a full one-year warranty compared with the month of service on the MG2220. Canon also generously provides the same software utility suite it bundles with its pricier models. If you're shopping for an output device to print mostly text, light graphics, and the occasional snapshot photo, the Canon Pixma MG3220 is a standout option with a generous balance of performance and features.
