Design and Features
Canon G4200 is a four-function printer that can print, scan, copy, and fax. It has a single paper feeder that holds up to 100 sheets of plain paper or 5-by-7 photo paper in place of plain paper.
The printer has a letter-size flatbed scanner & an automatic document feeder (ADF) that holds up to 20 sheets of letter-size or 5 sheets of legal-size paper. To the left of the ADF there is a 2-inch monochrome LCD, an alphanumeric keypad, and function buttons including Start, Stop, and Menu.
Ink Bottles and Tanks
Canon's this printer runs a very low ink costs and the reason is its MegaTank line which use bottled ink into refillable tanks built into the printer. Four ink tanks are built into the printer, the black tank to the left of the output tray and three tanks for color inks (yellow, cyan, and magenta) to the right. Each tank is sealed with a rubber cap. To fill a tank:
• you remove the stopper
• open the ink bottle for the tank in question, and
• insert the bottle's nozzle into the hole on top of the tank.
• gently squeeze the bottle until it is empty
• the tank is full
Mobile Printing Features
The G4200 can be connected directly to a computer via USB, or to a network via Wi-Fi. It is AirPrint compatible and Mopria compliant for printing from iOS and Android devices, respectively, and can print from the Canon Print app as well. You can get support for canon printer connected via helpline numbers mentioned below.
High Speed Printing Speed
G4200 offers text print with speed of 7.1 pages per minute (ppm). In printing our full business suite, which includes PDF, PowerPoint, and Excel files, at 3ppm. The speed is a bit slow as compared to other Epson or Brother printers. If you are wondering about slow printing speed of your printer contact canon printer customer support and speak to our technician.
Better Output Quality
The G4200's overall output quality is above par for an inkjet, particularly with regards to its text and photos; its graphics are average. The G4200 also did well with thin colored lines, and in differentiating between similar tones. Photo quality is also good, with bright colors & good retention of detail.
Low Running Costs
Like Canon’s other MegaTank range- the G2200 and the G3200, the G4200 has ultra-low running costs of just 0.3 cent per black page and 0.8 cent per color page. The reason is its MegaTank All-in-One Printer that offers low running cost as it uses bottled ink rather than cartridges.
In the end, we can conclude that Pixma G4200 is a more-than-reasonable choice as an all-in-one printer for either home or home-office use, or both.
Drawbacks of Canon Pixma G4200 Printer
Also, we have come across some drawbacks of this Canon printer model:
• Like all the models in Canon's G-series so far, it lacks Ethernet connectivity.
• Its single paper feeder holds up to 100 sheets of plain paper, which is fine for home use but sparse if you are going to use it for work purposes.
• The G4200 does not support automatic two-sided scanning and lacks an auto-duplexer for two-sided printing.
