An A4 borderless takes a little longer.

Caveat: The mono test was a colour sheet with a fair proportion image versus text with the driver switched to greyscale.  We tested a straight text only sheet, and that reduced to 45/60 seconds.

That fairly closely aligns to Canon’s stated figures.

Ink tanks

The tank holds enough (in theory) to print 6000 (pigment) mono or 7700 (dye) colour combo. But the initial setup sucks up a lot of ink to fill the lines and set up. This is one printer that you should keep switched on.

The tanks are straightforward to fill and are colour coded. You can part-fill or top up a tank too. And the driver will also tell you estimated pages left.

Paper feed

  • Paper tray 250 sheets 65gsm (200 x 80gsm) but we suggest underfilling. The tray accepts 64-105gsm paper
  • Output tray – 50 sheets (this is a nuisance if you are doing a lot of printing)
  • Manual feed to 300gsm (one to 80 sheets depends on weight)

Auto Duplex print only works from the tray with a plain paper setting.

The Auto document feeder is single-sided (not duplex).

Apps and cloud print

PIXMA Cloud Link includes Instagram and SlideShare in addition to existing cloud services such as Facebook, Dropbox and Google Drive.

It supports Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Windows 10 Mobile Print and Mopria Print Service (Android).

Desk size

403 (W) x 369 (D) x 234 (H) x 9.6kg

It is pretty small, but as you need access to the rear for the manual paper feed and the paper comes out the front, the working depth is closer to 600mm.

Maintenance

You can initiate a print head alignment or clean/deep clean etc. via the app or the display.

There are some special instructions for moving the printer. You need to put it in transport mode and turn off the ink lever. Transport flat and in the supplied plastic bag in case of ink leaks. Ink stains would be tough to remove.

GadgetGuy’s take – The Canon Pixma Endurance G7060 focuses on ultra-low print cost.

Unlike the natty little Pixma TR150 battery portable (GadgetGuy review here) that is almost alone in its category and where portability is the focus, the Endurance G7060 is up against some strong competition from Epson EcoTank and Brother Inkvestment – both good Japanese companies as well.

So, while Canon may not appreciate the frankness – all brands have similar features – it does not outshine the competition in any particular area.
