Canon goes for endurance


Canon’s new Endurance range comprises its first refillable colour inkjet printers aimed at higher volume home and small business users (SOHO).

The printer has four ink tanks — cyan, magenta, yellow and black — and uses refill bottles that deliver up to 7000 A4 pages in colour and 6000 in black. Initially, the product comes in G2600, G3600, and G4600 models; the last-named has multi-function features, Wi-Fi and Cloud print.

Ink tank printers are not new — a rival brand has had models out for the past couple of years — but it is certainly a tacit acknowledgement from Canon that a SOHO printer is no longer merely a vehicle to use expensive ink. The catch is simply that you pay more for these types of printers upfront so it is only of benefit to power users.

Ink costs $24.99 for each colour and $29.99 for black, totalling $104.96 – about 1.5 cents per page in colour making it a very low-cost option.

The G4600 (top of the range) technical specifications include:

  • B5 up to A4 paper 105gsm and speciality paper up to 275gsm.
  • A4 borderless print.
  • Mono 8.8 ipm and colour 5 ipm.
  • Wi-Fi N 2.4GHz and USB 2.0 port.
  • Copier, Fax (colour and mono), scanner (1200 x 600), cloud print (Google Cloud, Apple Air, Mopria).
  • ADF 99 sheets A4 80gsm.
  • 2-line LCD screen.
  • Cloud print access to Facebook, Dropbox, Google Drive, and SlideShare.
  • Size/weight: 445 x 330 x 197 mm x 7.2kg.
  • Price/Availability: $599 exclusively from Officeworks from mid-February.
