With an extremely low cost under $100, what to expect from Canon PIXMA MG2160 Driver? You can expect much in the price of the product to be put on upper list options. It is simple to note what are the best and worst from the item. Seeing from the design, it is just simple and gorgeous with the rounded edged block in matte black. It is made of plastic so there will be no any fingerprints left. When people notice it, it has no screen display as the LED only provides the number of copies.

So there is no information related to ink cartridge installation with 5-10 minutes for the setup process. This may leave out on a limb for amateur users. There is USB connectivity but not for Wi-Fi. In the case of speed, at normal quality, it takes 8.4 ppm (pages per minute) monochrome and 4.8 ppm for color. There is a delay between pages while printing. It is due to the printer waits for the previous page to dry. The drying time can be adjusted though it can be considered as slow for the speed.
