The $200 Canon PIXMA MG6220 is an inkjet MFP that prints, scans and copies. You can print on CDs and DVDs, smartphone printing is available with Easy-PhotoPrint, and Wi-Fi & Ethernet enable you to share with a small workgroup. There’s also a touch control panel for hands-on operation. While it looks like a solid overall feature set, does it get the job done in live conditions? The reviews are in, and they’re very good across the board.
PCWorld.com gives the Canon PIXMA MG6220 a solid 3.5 stars out of 5. Print speed and quality are good, and the touch control panel & CD/DVD printing are welcome features. On the other hand, ink costs are considered to be a little high (but you can cut them considerably by purchasing compatible cartridges).
David English of ComputerShopper.com gives the Canon PIXMA MG6220 a very good 4 stars out of 5. He agrees with PC World that print quality is good and CD/DVD printing is nice. In addition, English likes the Wi-Fi and auto-duplexer. On the other hand, he also agrees with PC World that OEM ink is a little pricy, and Wi-Fi setup is a bit trickier than it has to be.
Peter Piazza of About.com gives the Canon PIXMA MG6220 an impressive 4 stars out of 5. Speed is solid, photo quality is good, and the wide range of connectivity enables you to print from just about any popular device. He also likes how easy it is to use the touch control panel.
Finally, M. David Stone of PCMag.com gives the Canon PIXMA MG6220 another 4 out of 5. Like Piazza, Stone appreciates the photo quality and versatile connectivity. He concludes that “if you need a printer primarily for printing high-quality photos, and possibly for some limited home office use also, it’s an attractive choice.”
Overall, the Canon PIXMA MG6220 gets high marks for its photo printing and connectivity. It’s not exactly a speed demon or a heavy duty document producer, but it doesn’t need to be.
