Printers always play an essential role in modern home these days with the trend of self-printing documents for different aspect of living. We print our own boarding pass, income tax documents, family photo or that secret letter to someone special. It’s convenient to have a printer on standby for any urgent printing need that happens anytime. Due to the concern of space and cost, an all-in-one multi-function printer is even more ideal for home and small business office operation.

Canon PIXMA Ink Efficient G3010, is your ideal printer for homes and small businesses. This multi-function printer can copy, print and scans easily to mobile phones, tablets and laptops over Wi-Fi. Featuring a 1.2 inch segment LCD display, the G3010 makes printing and scanning easy, and also enhances ease of use for a variety of printer configuration options without a PC, including Wi-Fi Setup. The printer supports direct wireless connection to mobile devices and tablets without a router. Just connect and print.

Design

The compact PIXMA G3010 definitely has the space saving in mind when it comes to design. The small form factor makes it easy to fit into any home or office without taking up much space.

Combine with the wireless function, the G3010 will save you the space in a small room yet still provide the multi-function of an all-in-one printer.

Instead of having ink tanks hanging beside the printer chassis, G3010 ink tanks are integrated into the printer body. Each tank is designed to allow visual indication of remaining ink levels for the users without the need of data processing on a computer. Besides, it adds some colours to the conventional printer.

The control panel on the side provides One-Touch Direct Wireless Connection that connects to your smartphone easily.
