Canon PIXMA G650 Driver– The PIXMA G650/G620 is designed as a high-volume printer, so how many prints can you expect from a complete bottle set, such as the one that comes with the printer? This works for about 3,800 6×4-inch photos, or about 3,700 mono documents, or 8,000 color documents. It’s not really meant to be a document printer but, while it lacks pigment-based black ink, the mono text is a rich, deep, and sharp black with excellent definition. Color documents with mixed text and graphics are of the same high quality. However, these printers are equipped with relatively low capacity ‘adjustment cartridges’ so you must purchase a replacement immediately. And that’s the frustration.
There is a danger that pouring ink from a bottle into a tank can become a messy business. PIXMA has a nailed process, however, with a squeeze-free bottle that is simply inserted into the top of each tank. They are leak-free, locked so that each color of ink only fits into the top of the correct ink tank, and they stop pouring automatically when the ink tank is full. The whole process is quick, easy, and uncluttered. From scratch, the printer takes only 20 minutes to set up, from opening the box to the first print, and that includes the 10 minutes it takes the printer to charge and align its printheads automatically after you add ink.
Again, unlike some PIXMA printers, there’s no color touchscreen but at least there’s a small mono LCD and an intuitive button interface. It makes short work of making mono or color photocopies, thanks to the built-in scanner. Connectivity is also great, with USB and Wi-Fi, the latter enabling PIXMA Cloud Link for smartphones and tablets, Apple AirPrint, Mopria for Android and Wireless Direct.
Canon PIXMA G650 Performance
Switching to the A4 indefinitely, the G650/G620 took exactly two minutes in our tests, in normal quality mode, and 4 minutes 42 seconds in high quality mode. For document printing, a page of mono text takes 18 seconds in normal quality mode, and 30 seconds for a page of mixed mono text and color graphics, both in normal quality mode.
The difference between normal and high-quality photo print modes is almost indistinguishable unless you view your print under a high-magnification magnifying glass. Either way, color rendition is incredibly accurate, for everything from bright landscapes to subtle skin tones. The tonal range is also very good and the printer is also capable of printing black and white photos well. The blacks are not as rich on matte photo paper as when using a pigment-based printer with matte black ink, such as the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 or the large-format Epson SureColor P700, but still very good. A wide variety of glossy, glossy, matte and fine art papers are directly supported.
Canon Pixma G650 Verdict
Many printers that use bottled ink claim to save you money in the long run. The PIXMA G650/G620 will save you money even in the short term. The cost of buying a printer is about the same as buying a PIXMA TS8350/TS8320 based cartridge plus a full set of XXL cartridges, which have a much lower capacity. Long story short, the cost of ink per 6×4-inch photo print is just 2.5c/2.2p, compared to 31.6c/23.3p for a printer like the TS8350/TS8320.
Sure, the G650 isn’t very fast, but the print quality of both mono and color photos is excellent. Overall, this is a brilliant printer for any photographer who wants to see their images in print, rather than just seeing them on a screen.
