Canon PIXMA MG7160 – Design and Features, Printer ice-white or the jet-black case of this PIXMA printer (your choice) repeats earlier Canon machines, but is lower profile and with less to suspend it in the style of buttons and controls. That is because a combination of the control panel area besieging the 88mm touchscreen is a touch panel, with illuminated, context-sensitive icons performing as if by magic when must need. There’s no Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) on the machine, but the 2,400 x 4,800ppi flatbed scanner is only one method of feeding images into the computer. There are three memory card slots behind the fold-down front panel, including CompactFlash, which may interest older SLR camera owners (such as Canon’s).
As you fold down the front cover, paper support swings out automatically to form the output platter. You still have to pick a support extension explanation manually, but it’s a start. There are two, low-profile document trays, the higher one for up to 20 sheets Canon of photo document up to 7 x 5 inches, this cheaper one for 150 sheets of plain paper. Both capacities are a bit small. Clipped to the bottom of the photo tray is a CD/DVD/Blu-ray carrier for direct printing on covered discs. Flip down a small shelter inside the machine and slot the carrier in with a blank disc to print.
Canon PIXMA MG7160 – Cartridges and Connections, Getting at the six ink cartridges could hardly be more comfortable. The control panel, including its touchscreen, cantilevers upwards like the trays in a Snap-on toolbox and the print head slides to the centre of the carriage, with indicator LEDs flashing for any cartridge that needs attention. A USB connection at the back looks almost like a legacy offering as the printer is better prepared to working print wirelessly. As well as presenting wireless networked printing, it supports Wi-Fi Direct for both copy and scanning and seat, can link via AirPrint and Google Cloud Print, too.
With PIXMA Cloud link, you can also call down files stored online, directly from the printer. The only thing lost is Near Field Communication (NFC) support for quick free print setup. Canon PIXMA MG7160 – Print Speed and Canon specs the PIXMA MG 7160 at 15ppm printing black and 10ppm printing colour. We observed a maximum of 10.3ppm in black, on our 20-page test print, and 3.7ppm in colour, on a 5-page document print. Two thirds the rating for black print is not too bad, and anything over 10ppm for an inkjet is useful. 3.7 ppm is no so hot, but in the machine did not feel slow. Duplex print of the 20-side canon print document supplied an excellent 4.1 sides per minute.
A colour copy from the flatbed took 19s, which is good, and 15 x 10cm photos did all active with an outstanding 27s for a borderless printing from SD card. A wireless print from a Samsung Galaxy Android smartphone only took 41s, as well. Canon PIXMA Print type MG7160 Print Quality and Print Costs Canon is the best Print quality, as we’ve come to expect from Canon over the years, is pretty much as good as you’ll get from an inkjet. Black text is dense and sharp, colours are bright, and attention-grabbing and solid fills show no signs of banding or dither patterns. Black version over colour is well registered. Photo prints give natural colours and smooth transitions, and there’s plenty of detail, even in darker areas of images. The back page cost, using XL ink cartridges, is 3.1p, very similar to those of other all-in-ones in this market.
With Canon’s extra grey ink, designed to improve black-and-white photo prints, colour page costs are a little higher than with some five-ink machines, but still, come out at a very acceptable 8.4p. Verdict, The Canon PIXMA MG7160, is an excellent all-around all-in-one for home and particularly photo-enthusiast use. Its neat design and intelligent control panel are supported by excellent wireless equipment, making it good-suited to buyers who need to print from a variety of sophisticated devices Canon PIXMA MG7160 Driver Download, Manual Installations, Wireless Setup for Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Review.
