The Canon PIXMA G7020 is a brilliant printer for offices and families, thanks to its minimal running cost, substantial page yield, and high-quality prints. But its sluggish printing speed is unfit for busy environments, and the scanner isn’t great at capturing colors.

Product Snapshot

Overview

Launched in 2019, the Canon PIXMA G7020 is a mid-range, all-in-one SuperTank printer with print, scan, copy, and fax support. It has a 1.8” non-touch display, a 250-sheet front input tray capacity, and a 100-sheet rear feeder capacity. Weighing 21 lbs, it supports automatic duplex printing and has a 30-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF), but it lacks auto duplex scanning, which the best printers always have.

The print and scan resolution are 4800 x 1200 DPI and 1200 DPI, respectively. Connectivity options include Ethernet, USB-A to computer, WiFi, WiFi Direct, Mopria, and AirPrint, but no external storage support exists. Check out our best all-in-one printers for printers with this feature.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Canon PIXMA G7020 is a mid-range printer excellent for small offices and families. Its impressive page yield of 5415 black and 4790 color pages and low running costs of 0.3 cents per page make it ideal for extensive printing. The 4800 x 1200 DPI print resolution effectively prints tiny details with precision (color and text), while the 1200 DPI scan feature is good for documents and satisfactory for photos.

Color accuracy (8.25 dE) is acceptable for casual images, but the 8.05 PPM mono and 2.5 PPM color printing speeds aren’t apt for busy workspaces. This printer ranks among the slowest in our certified, tested list. Auto duplex printing and ADF support enhance convenience, and so do the smart connectivity features (mobile app, AirPrint, Mopria, and WiFi Direct), but external storage support is missing.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Great print quality
    • The Canon PIXMA G7020 is an excellent printer for offices and families that print often. Its high page yield (5415 black and 4790 color pages) comfortably meets large printing requirements.

    • The 4800 x 1200 DPI print resolution produces detailed color and text prints, while the 8.25 dE color accuracy is acceptable for casual photo printing.

  • Good scan quality
    • The 1200 DPI scanner captures text effectively but is only average at scanning colors.

  • Ultra-low running costs
    • The G7020 has a running cost of 0.3 cents per page, perfect for satisfying sizable printing demands. Its running cost is also the least expensive in our verified, tested roster.

Reason to Avoid

  • Slow printing speeds
    • The 8.05 PPM black-only and 2.5 PPM color printing speeds rank among the slowest in our certified, tested roster, which is why the G7020 isn’t suitable for fast-moving work environments.

  • No external storage support
    • Although the printer features versatile wireless connectivity options, external storage support (USB or SD card) is absent.

The Canon PIXMA G7020 (mono and color printing) and the Canon imageCLASS MF455dw (mono-only) are similarly priced, but the G7020 is better if you print frequently because of its minimal running costs and higher page yield. However, the MF455dw is more suitable for fast-paced work environments thanks to its superior printing speeds. To learn more, read our Canon imageCLASS MF455dw review. For a speedy printer with lower running costs than the MF455dw, consider this Pantum P2502W review.
