Compact, lots of features, lots of ink!

All good after a few weeks. It's worth going through the settings to switch off options that might annoy you (like asking for paper size on refill)
This is how to get customer loyalty.
Review by Darreb (Posted on 13/01/2022)
I purchased this after spending far too long deciding on a model. Yes it was expensive, but I am more convinced now I have it that it is value for money.

I can see the ink levels at a glance and I can afford genuine ink that I really do believe is superior.

Printer base actually called me to check I had ordered the specifications I wanted and delivery was as promised.

Well done Printerbase, I'm really pleased with the product and the service.
Delighted with Maxify GX6050 and with Printerbase advice & service
Review by RF (Posted on 11/01/2022)
I purchased the GX6050 to replace an 8-year-old HP printer, which was costing £140, twice a year, in ink cartridges. The Canon was easy to install, printing & scanning worked immediately (using the Canon Smart Connect app), and — happily — the GX6050 seems to be using ink very slowly. I was also very impressed with the pre-sales advice provided by Printerbase — for example, informing me about the single-sided scanning limitation. Overall, very happy.
Guarded optimism.
Review by Andy (Posted on 09/01/2022)
Easy physical setup and seems to print well. Online manual not straightforward and seeting up via Wifi laborious and took many attempts. Also learning how to use the scanner is not easy and I still do not know how. This is disappointing as I chose the Canon over Epson, because I read that setting up and using Epson printers was not as easy! I hope the excellent suppliers Printerbase will come to the rescue when I call them for advice.
Perfect home/small office printer - wired network or wireless
Review by JohnWW (Posted on 07/01/2022)
The GX6050 printer is an impressive device - was hard to find proper technical data for this before purchasing. My use-case is home-office.

It does double-sided printing.
It scans single sided only - this is not a duplex scanner device (the next model up in the range is),

The printer has an RJ45 Ethernet port + USB and Wireless so you can have a proper network wired connection. Set-up is straightforward, the software finds the printer on the network. The little LCD panel on the front of the printer pivots out and has a touch display - super easy to use.

The 4 ink bottles have unique tops so they can't attached to the wrong tank - the black bottle is 170Ml and the Cyan/Magenta/Yellow bottles are 130Ml each. The entire bottle fills each tank.

There is misinformation in some of the reviews in that the set up process consumes a lot of ink - it doesn't as would be the case on most cartridge printers. Print quality is good even for photos on copier paper and it's very fast too.

The printer switches itself off after an hour or so which means that you have to physically power it on the next time you want to use it (or you'll get an error that clears itself automatically - fair enough as the days of devices powered-up-on-stand-by are over.

Consumables - for all the previous Canon ink-jets I've owned I've used pattern cartridges. For the GX6050 the ink only seems to come from Canon at £20 to £25 a bottle and there's a printer-cleaning cartridge at £25 too so a full set of consumables is circa £125. Once the cleaning cartridge is full the printer won't work so its a good idea to have one on the shelf. The trade-off being that the printer can churn out thousands of pages rather than a couple of hundred.

The standard Canon warranty is 2 year - by registering the device on Canon's web site you can get an extra year's cover:
Good purchase - very pleased
Review by DC (Posted on 07/01/2022)
Great all rounder. Fast printing and the duplex function is excellent on printing. Draft mode produces much clearer print than my old laser printer. Colour photo printing good but not quite as good as my older Canon Pixma printer. A little slow to start after a period of hibernation but the other benefits more than compensate for this. Running costs look as though they should be cheaper than my old monochrome laser. Fast delivery and competitive price from Printerbase.
Competent multifunctioal printer. I look forward to the longterm savings from not having to buy endless overpriced cartridges.
Review by Simon (Posted on 07/01/2022)
Nice multifunctional printer which works well and was reasonably easy to set up using a USB connection. I can't get the scan function to work but this is probably because of my incompenetence with the software. The colour rendering is not as good as my previous Canon MP190 but it will be considerably cheaper to run given the cost of the cartridges for that. Double sided printing will also save on paper.
Amazing, recommend
