Canon IJ Setup MG3620 Drivers Download
Canon IJetSetup – The Canon Pixma MG3620 is part of the Consumer Reports printer test program. In our laboratory tests, printer models such as the PIXMA MG3620 are evaluated according to several criteria, such as those listed below.
Text quality: Specifies the precision and sharpness with which a printer produces black text in a variety of faces, sizes, and styles. Models with higher scores produce a more uniform type, with sharper edges and smoother curves.
Text speed: This note reflects how quickly the model can print text on five simple letter-sized pages. 30 seconds or less is excellent; 31 to 60 seconds is very good; 61 to 90 seconds it’s fine; 91 to 120 seconds is right; And more than 120 seconds is poor.
Graphic quality: Our assessment of the appearance of color graphics produced by the printer. Black and white lasers were judged on black and white graphs.
The setup was easy for me, but I can see where some low tech people might be frustrated because the instructions are not particularly user friendly. All I did was plug it in, install the application on my iPad, click the “Save printer ” option of the application, and then follow the instructions. Our permanent configuration is wireless with a variety of devices-Apple iphones and IPads, Mac desktops, Windows laptops, Chromebook-and everyone can print without a problem. A cable for direct connection is not included, so buy it if you are planning situations where wireless is not an option. I’ve already had problems with connecting other brands of wireless printers. So I understand that some people might have problems with it. I guess this time I got lucky with the installation.
There are some minor troubles. The paper tray is not completely closed, it is suspended from the front; I guess dust-o-phobes could load paper only when they are ready to print. There is no error message display screen and no paper manual is included (you must go online or through an application). The power cord fits into a recessed area at the back and, if shaken, you can no longer touch it blindly to retrieve it. The printer emits a lot of strange noises both before and after printing.
I have had none of the problems I have read in other reviews. No paper jam (although I often print simple sheets or just a few). The printer “wakes up” appropriately when a job is sent. The use of black and color ink cartridges is better than that of Epson (cartridges were separated for each color). Does not deposit my wireless home network constantly like other printers. No major complaints (at the moment)!
Update: I eliminated another star simply because solving problems (insufficient ink level, no ink, bad paper size, paper jam, WI-Fi connection problems, etc.) is very painful. Since there is no display screen on the printer itself, you need to rely on the application and the online manual to decipher the flashes/errors—and the information it contains are very generic. Canon should at least have included a tiny display of numeric codes so you can easily search for them, or ask the application to check the status and specify the problem. For this reason, this “easy-to-use” printer is not a good choice for people who want simple print functionality. Too bad, the printer was great if not—text and sharp images, a good color, a decent ink usage. I had originally planned to send this printer to college with my child, but now I keep it at home and I’m looking for other options.
