The compact size of the Canon Maxify GX6570 makes it ideal for a small office, and it can print up to 6,000 black-and-white pages before it runs out of ink. Colour prints go up to 14,000 pages. As a 3-in-1 printer, you can also scan and copy documents.
- Max paper size: A4
- Page yield: 6,000 mono, 14,000 colour (standard) or 9,000 mono, 21,000 colour (economy)
- Dimensions: 399 x 410 x 254mm
- 2.7-inch touchscreen display
The first thing you'll notice about the printer is the design. The trays unfold, while the 2.7-inch display flips upwards. This also means that the printer becomes pretty compact, and is easy to store when not needed. Then again, if you're using this printer in the office, you're probably leaving it unfolded anyway. The smaller size does have a few design compromises. If you're using the scanner, you can only scan A5-ish stuff using the flatbed. If you want A4, you'll have to use the document feeder.
Like with most modern printers, the GX6570 supports wireless printing from your phone, but if you're printing photos, make sure to leave the app open or it will stop the print. You can use the app to scan documents via the printer, or take a picture of a document to print with your smartphone. While you can scan documents manually from the printer, it can't send them to your phone (but it can send to your PC). So if you want copies on your phone, use the Canon app.
Print quality is great, and the inks are water resistant. That means it won't smudge if you accidentally spill water on it. The GX6570 can print great photos, especially if you use Canon's photo glossy papers. Photo prints take around 45 seconds, while black-and-white single-sided pages take around 32s for six pages. Double-sided pages take a bit longer at 40s for six. It's not as fast as the Epson EcoTank L6490 though, which can churn out colour pages in just 17s.
At S$799, the Canon Maxify GX6570 is a decent, and compact business printer. It's not the fastest printer around, though. Refills cost around S$35 for colour and S$50 for black, which makes it less than a cent for mono, and about two cents for colour. Get it from Shopee or Lazada.
