The Canon Pixma MG5620 is an attractive printer despite its high ink costs
Hey, it's Justin Mu here with the first look at the Cannon Pixma MG5620 multifunction ink jet printer.
So in addition to printing in full color, this machine can also scan and copy documents.
However, if you are a multi tasker and plan to scan a lot of documents, you may want to look for a more office friendly machine because a lot of things about this printer make it better for personal use.
So first of all there's no document feeder on top here, so you can't throw on a stack of papers to get scanned.
You have to do it one by one using the single sheet manual feed tray on the bottom.
There's also a lot to be said about what you don't get on this printer, things like a lack of a media card reader and a USB port may also be a deal breaker for photographers.
So it's kind of tricky to review this printer, because although it delivers on it's promise to output high quality photos, it does so at a pretty high cost of consumables.
There's five ink cartridges in there, which means it can really handle the wide spread of colors, but at about $.05 a page for black ink alone, you'll be racking up a lot of refills if you print too much.
So this printer is much better suited for at home use with users that plan to print only print light graphics, documents and text but don't print enough to warrant the investment in a larger laser printer or office friendly multi printer.
You can read more details in my full review on CNET, but that's it for this video.
This is the Cannon Pixma MG5620 Inkjet Printer.
