If it seems like you're always changing ink cartridges, why don't you change your printer? Introducing the Canon PIXMA G4200 Wireless MegaTank All-In-One Printer. Copying, scanning, printing, and faxing have never been so convenient or cost-effective, thanks to its innovative MegaTank ink system which delivers up to 6,000 crisp black pages / 7,000 magnificent colour pages with the replacement set of ink bottles1. It would take 30 conventional ink cartridge sets to make the same amount of prints!2 Which means you won't have to purchase ink for a long, long time. Plus, you can monitor your ink levels with a quick glance at the clear, front-mounted reservoirs, so there's no need to stop to replace ink in the middle of a job. Even better, the inks won't dry out between uses because the ink delivery system is air-sealed. Connecting your favourite devices is just as convenient via Wi-Fi®3, AirPrint®4, Google Cloud Print®5, USB and even directly from the Cloud6. Plus, the PIXMA G4200 printer has an automatic document feeder for added convenience. And the print quality? Exceptional, with crisp, clean documents and gorgeous borderless photos7. Are you ready for the Canon PIXMA G4200 Wireless MegaTank All-In-One Printer? Good, because it will always be ready for you!
