IJ Setup Canon PIXMA GM2050 Reviews– The Canon Pixma GM2050 is a black and white tank printer that can be upgraded to a color printer. The test revealed a good solution.
With the Canon Pixma GM2050, you get a black and white tank printer that can do more than just print in grayscale. Because it can be processed into a four-color printer with three-color ink cartridges. With this, the manufacturer offers a smart printing solution for users who produce lots of pages of text, but sometimes also want to give a little color to the paper. This is not only a smart idea but also well implemented in practice, as the test shows.
Canon proposes a good compromise with the Pixma GM2050: As a black and white tank printer, it produces very cheap monochrome pages. So you don’t have to use another printer to print colors every once in a while, it can also print in color when needed, thanks to the optional color cartridge, without breaking your price. A smart idea that Canon also implements in a user-friendly way. For the purchase price, you get a solid office printer with lots of ink, which can run faster and be quieter. That it’s an unsupported AppleAirprint is also a bit surprising. Nonetheless, both the idea and the practical implementation of this combined tank/cartridge printer deserve the PC-WELT “Innovative technology” award.
Easy installation – including easy color enhancements
To prepare the Canon Pixma GM2050 for use, fill the tank with black ink from the bottle. During commissioning, the lines to the printhead that you inserted earlier are filled. So far we know the principles that the manufacturers set for tank printers. Another current representative testing with ink tanks can be found on the Canon Pixma G6050
A new feature of the Canon Pixma GM2050 is that you can also print in color with a grayscale inkjet printer. Because it offers additional space for 3C cartridges with three color spaces and an integrated printhead. It is not included in the scope of delivery but can be purchased if needed. To use it, take out the existing dummy and replace it with a cartridge – done. You can easily park placeholders in the housing in an extra hidden area. So it can’t be lost. Since the Canon Pixma GM2050 is designed primarily for monochrome printing, you will need to uncheck “Grayscale” for color printing in the driver. But again, you get a real, monochrome page.
Thanks to the tank system, you can print pages of text very economically. With just one bottle of ink, you can theoretically get 6000 ISO pages. With a current price of 14.00 euros for a black ink bottle, this makes for a page price of 0.23 cents. But you will last for a while without additional purchases, as this kit comes with three bottles of black ink (GI-50) from the factory. This gives you about 18,000 pages of ink.
If you decide on a color cartridge that has the identification CL-541, the current version of XL costs around 30.00 euros. According to the manufacturer, it should be enough for 400 ISO pages. This results in a color page price calculated at 7.5 cents, which is quite reasonable.
Apart from that, the Canon Pixma GM2050 does well in terms of power consumption. Connected via USB, the meter only shows 0.7 watts in standby mode. If we turn off the printer using the power switch, the value drops to 0.0 watts – for example. The LED on the device continues to flash – a sign that the USB supply is sufficient for the monitor. In the grid, energy requirements increase to 1.3 watts in sleep mode. If the switch is activated, the consumption drops to 0.0 watts, the LED on the device also goes out here.
Features – multiple interfaces and multiple buttons
To control the Canon Pixma GM2050, the printer offers USB 2.0, LAN, 11n WLAN (2.4 GHz), and Wi-Fi Direct – these are many possibilities. At the same time, there are only a few buttons on the case, which are also not labeled. Nevertheless, integration into the wireless network worked without problems. Because the button is used for “Wireless Connection” and activates the access point function. The printer can be recognized by the client and integrated into the network.
Otherwise, the Canon Pixma GM2050 is limited to the essentials – including two paper compartments – a cassette for a maximum of 250 sheets, a rear compartment for an additional 100 sheets. Integrated duplex unit for automatic printing on the front and back of the paper.
