Canon PIXMA G1500 falls into the G-series of Canon’s PIXMA family of printers. The G-series of this family emphasizes on ink efficiency to give you some sort of a freedom of mind when it comes to printing costs. Said efficiency reflects on the unit’s possession of ink tanks that are embedded at the front side of its body. What can be made of this? Well, you can immediately observe ink levels without having to open the cover first, as with other printers. By being able to directly observe ink status, you can maintain ink supply while the unit is doing its job.
Canon G1500, unfortunately, is not a very versatile machine. It can only do printing while most printers today come with added values at being able to also scan and copy or even fax documents. However, the unit seems to make up for this lack of flexibility by doing what it indeed can do superbly. The machine can put out pictures in black and white at the speed of 8.8 pages per minute and 5 colored images per minute.
Canon PIXMA G 1500, too, can print up to 7000 colored pages and 6000 black and white pages in addition to being able to print in maximum A4 size papers as well as borderless.
