5 years ago, I won a printer from a raffle. Since then, I've only used that printer for all my daily needs. I loved this printer though I always wished that the photo output was more vibrant and long-lasting.
Some people told me that for those needs of mine, I should try a Canon printer. Over the years, I would hear Canon being recommended whenever I would talk about my journaling or memory-keeping projects. Finally, I bit the bullet and now have a Canon Pixma G3020.
I loved that it was not as bulky as my previous printer. It had the same purpose as being a scanner, copier, and printer but this was far less bulky. This meant that it was also not as heavy which is a definite plus because I tend to move my things around in my little office whenever I feel stuck and looking for an idea.
I love that it's a sleek combo of gray and black. It's not hard to fit into the overall design of my workspace though if it came in baby pink, it would be so much better. Ahem ahem. Pastel-colored printer collection please hahaha.
Speed of Printing
My old printer would take ages to print. One page can take more than one minute and if I use the best print options, it can take at least 5 minutes even. When you're in a rush to do something, this can be frustrating.
This is the one thing that I don't like so much about the Canon Pixma G3020. It's a bit noisier than my old printer. However, this is something that I can live with for sure.
Overall, I'm very happy with the performance of the Canon Pixma G3020. I've tried printing 300+ pages and it took less than 30 minutes for everything to get printed out. Definitely impressed me.
Now, I just need to see how it does when I print photos and stickers. I hope that it will produce really good quality photos and clear stickers so that I can finally have an all in one printer that serves the needs of my son for his modules as well as my journaling and memory keeping needs.
