In our standard PC Globe printer examinations, it accomplished a sensible 7.9 ppm with monochrome text and lineart and 5ppm black and white text and also graphics. However, that was contrasted by a specifically reduced 2.2 ppm colour text as well as graphics. Complete A4 image prints was available in at a typical 5 mins 49 secs per print, at ‘best’ high quality on shiny photo paper.The Canon PIXMA MG3160 makes use of simply 2 ink cartridges– black as well as colour. This is a point of distinction from most of its rivals, which different ‘colour’ into specific cartridges for Cyan, Yellow as well as Magenta. If your ink usage is out of balance in favour of some certain tone, this might raise your ink costs a little as you can only change the entire ‘colour’ container at the same time.
