  • Canon Pixma MG2522 Specification Details

    This affordable, all-in-one printer conveniently connects to WiFi for wireless printing but can also connect directly to a computer or mobile device via a USB cable. Color prints come out cleanly, while text documents appear crisp with an impressive print speed of 4-8 ipm2 (images per minute). 

    Users can switch to XL cartridges, which carry more ink, so you can change cartridges and buy them less frequently. It’s economical and lightweight with a compact body; it’s easy to stow away in a cabinet or shelf when not in use. After the initial setup, you can plug it in and power it up to print, scan, or photocopy documents anytime. 

    The Canon Pixma MG2522 is a suitable choice for offices, student dorms, and home use.
