1. Save money with low-cost and high-quality printing

Canon's PIXMA G-Series MegaTank printers use built-in, refillable ink tanks with exceptionally high-yield bottles rather than conventional cartridges. The G-Series MegaTank range of printers is capable of printing up to 6,0001 typical A4 documents with a set of ink bottles and still have additional colour ink available for your next print runs. The PIXMA G-series MegaTank refillable ink printers provide you with a yield of more than 30 times2 compared to standard ink cartridges for typical A4 office documents, meaning you won’t have to go out of your way to buy new inks for months or even years to come.

The great thing about the cost savings delivered by Canon's MegaTank printers, is that print quality is not compromised. MegaTank printers offer rich colours from the dye-based colour inks, and exceptionally sharp document printing is achieved with the dedicated pigment black ink. Even very small text and white characters on coloured backgrounds will maintain a high degree of clarity.

1Actual page yields will vary based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions. Yields are calculated using the PIXMA G3600 MegaTank with international standard ISO/IEC 24711, which uses test prints designed to represent typical A4 documents and testing in controlled conditions. Yields calculated with subsequent sets of ink, printing continuously. An amount of ink is used to fill the print head's nozzles and so the page yield of the initial bundled set of ink is lower than that of subsequent sets. Printing smaller print jobs will lower the print yield when compared with printing continuously.
