Review Canon PIXMA MG3160 Printer – The MG3160 from Canon is on the surface the same to the Canon MG2160 examined in our March 2012 all-in-one roundup, yet with a piano-black finish as opposed to the 2160’s matte. That finish is mosting likely to pick up finger prints continuously, particularly around the buttons as well as the scanner lid, which you’ll often touch. Nonetheless, it does look good along with a shiny black display, audio speaker collection as well as various other such items of desktop-tech.

Like its lower-end brother or sister, the MG3160 really feels a little frightening with its seven-segment LED display (the kind that could just display a solitary figure simultaneously), standing LEDs as well as tiny collection of buttons. It’s really a gadget you wish to establish and use using your PC; attempting to alter setups or do maintenance on the printer itself is a workout in disappointment. Aiming to analyze error messages relating to jams, lack of paper or absence of ink on that little display is just difficult without the handbook.

Review Canon PIXMA MG3160 Printer – COMPUTER setup takes about ten minutes, and also gives you the choice to link to the printer by USB or Wi-Fi. Fortunately, offered the lacking on-printer UI, you can establish the Wi-Fi link using just the COMPUTER. This needs that you link the printer to the COMPUTER briefly by means of a USB wire, which could then be eliminated as soon as setup is total.

Advertised print rates at typical high quality are marginally above those of the MG2160, at 9.2 ppm (web pages per min) monochrome, as well as 5ppm colour. In our standardised PC Globe printer examinations, it attained a practical 7.9 ppm with monochrome message as well as lineart and also 5ppm black and white message and also graphics. Nevertheless, that was contrasted by a specifically reduced 2.2 ppm colour message and graphics. Full A4 photo prints was available in at a typical 5 minutes 49 secs each print, at ‘finest’ top quality on shiny image paper.

Publish top quality is practically equivalent from that of the lower-priced and lower-specced MG2160; this is expected, given that both use the very same print cartridges and set the very same amount of ink.

Canon PIXMA MG3160 Printer – Pictures are sharp and photo noise is low, yet colours show up a little over-exposed and photos slightly blurred or lacking in detail. Some message appears over-inked (as if bolded) and also in the most awful situations, especially fuzzy because of that. Nonetheless, for the most part, message top quality is adequate but not equivalent to the sharp-edged output of a printer.

The MG3160 uses simply two ink cartridges– black and also colour. This is a factor of difference from a lot of its rivals, which different ‘colour’ into specific cartridges for Cyan, Yellow and also Magenta. If your ink use is unbalanced in favour of some certain tone, this could push up your ink costs a little as you could just replace the entire ‘colour’ container at once.
