Canon PIXMA MG7160


An excellent printer for most home and SOHO users with great all around results, but as with any inkjet it's not about the upfront price but the ongoing ink costs.

Speedy text printing ; Simple touch interface

Small paper trays ; Inks predictably outstrip purchase price

It's a real sign of the times that vendors are selling products of this quality for less than $200. The Canon PIXMA MG7160 is an excellent printer for most home and SOHO users, although as with all inkjets, it's not really about the upfront purchase...

Mg7160 Print Quality and windows 10 drivers


I were very satisfied at the printed output. Images and documents sent from iOS devices and a MacBook Pro all looked excellent with text clearly rendered. Photos, printed on Canon's photo stock, had great colour depth and richness. Blacks were solid...

Good doorstop or boat anchor


Seriously DO NOT buy this printer. I have owned many printers over the years, but this one is better used as a doorstop. Don't get fooled buy the fancy digital display screen. Only a couple of the selections offered are worthwhile. AND, if you want a...

Terrible paper feed very frustrating


Very unsatisfied. Paper feed constantly goes into error and says no paper or wrong size paper has been loaded when that is not the case. Colours on specialty papers are inconsistent and unreliable. Unless you are just printing a few pages of text at a...

Some functions are great, others disappointing


I chose this printer so I could print CD labels. While the print quality for all functions is great, the My Image Garden program is un-intuitive and difficult to navigate. Each time I begin making a label, I have to research the process again. The...

The print quality is good but slow and clumsy.


The driver is too complex to install and has too many options. You cannot ask user to track his usage . Its unethical! I cannot get a reply when I ask for a driver to download. I need a driver to use otherwise the printer is useless - this driver...
