Canon PIXMA MG3160 Driver. The MG3160 from Canon is on the surface the same to the Canon MG2160 reviewed in our March 2012 all-in-one roundup, but with a piano-black coating rather than the 2160’s matte. That coating is going to pick up finger prints continuously, specifically around the switches and the scanner cover, which you’ll often touch. Nonetheless, it does look great alongside a shiny black monitor, audio speaker collection as well as various other such items of desktop-tech.
Like its lower-end brother or sister, the MG3160 feels a little daunting with its seven-segment LED screen (the kind that can just display a single number at the same time), status LEDs and also tiny collection of buttons. It’s truly a tool you wish to set up as well as use by means of your COMPUTER; trying to transform settings or do upkeep on the printer itself is a workout in stress. Attempting to interpret error messages pertaining to jams, absence of paper or lack of ink on that small screen is simply difficult without the guidebook.
COMPUTER arrangement takes about 10 minutes, and offers you the choice to connect to the printer by USB or Wi-Fi. Thankfully, provided the doing not have on-printer UI, you could establish the Wi-Fi link using only the PC. This calls for that you attach the printer to the PC briefly via a USB cord, which can then be gotten rid of when configuration is total. Promoted print speeds at normal quality are partially higher than those of the MG2160, at 9.2 ppm (pages each min) grayscale, and 5ppm colour.
In our standard PC Globe printer tests, it attained an affordable 7.9 ppm with monochrome text and lineart as well as 5ppm grayscale message and also graphics. Nevertheless, that was contrasted by an especially low 2.2 ppm colour message and graphics. Complete A4 picture prints was available in at an ordinary 5 minutes 49 secs per print, at ‘ideal’ top quality on glossy image paper. Publish quality is virtually identical from that of the lower-priced and lower-specced MG2160; this is anticipated, considered that the two utilize the same print cartridges and lay down the very same amount of ink.
Illustrations are sharp and picture noise is low, however colours show up a little over-exposed and also photographs somewhat obscured or doing not have carefully. Some message shows up over-inked (as if bolded) as well as in the most awful cases, significantly fuzzy due to that. Nonetheless, essentially, text top quality is adequate yet not comparable to the sharp-edged outcome of a laser printer.
The MG3160 uses just 2 ink cartridges– black as well as colour. This is a factor of difference from most of its competitors, which separate ‘colour’ into specific cartridges for Cyan, Yellow and also Magenta. If your ink usage is out of balance in favour of some certain tone, this might push up your ink sets you back a little as you can just replace the entire ‘colour’ storage tank at once..
