Canon MAXIFY GX7020X Inkjet Printer: Review

The Canon MAXIFY GX7020 is an amazing all-in-one colour inkjet printer meant for small offices. It uses a super tank ink system that gives it exceptionally high page yields, minimizes refills, and results in a superbly low cost-per-print. Its body and components feel sturdy and well-built, and paper jams are easy to access. It produces decently detailed photos, and while its colour accuracy is only okay, it’s fine for casual colour prints. Compared to the Canon MAXIFY GX6020, the GX7020 has faxing capabilities, double the paper input tray capacity, and its ADF supports automatic single-pass duplex scanning, making it a more flexible printer for offices.

A key strength for the GX7020—and its an even smaller sibling, the Canon Maxify GX6020 ($799.99)—is that saving pennies per day can add up to big bucks over time. The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fdw ($599), for example, costs much less upfront. But the M479fdw’s printing costs are 2.2 cents for a black text page and 13.9 cents for a colour page, compared with Canon’s estimate of a flat 2 cents per page for the GX6020 and the GX7020. Print 5 text pages with each, and the Canon models will save you a penny over the HP. Print 50,000, and they will save you $100. For colour pages, a single page saves 11.9 cents. Print 3,000, and you save $357—more than making up for the difference in retail price.

Setting up the GX7020 is mostly straightforward, despite a minor quirk in the software installation. At 28.6 pounds and just 12.4 by 16.2 by 15.8 inches (HWD), the printer is light enough for most people to move into place without help. That isn’t true for any of its direct competitors other than the GX6020, which is a few inches shorter (due to having only one paper drawer) and weighs a few pounds less. Epson’s ET-5850 and ET-5880—which we called “slender” and “relatively small” only a year ago—weigh 39.2 pounds and are a couple of inches larger in every dimension, and equivalent laser AIOs tend to be even bigger and heavier.


The GX7020 also has no shortage of features. Its connection choices include Ethernet, USB, Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi Direct. If you link it to your network by Ethernet, Wi-Fi Direct is disabled, but you can still print from a phone or tablet that’s on the same network via Wi-Fi. Like all AIOs, it can scan to a PC and serve as a standalone copier and fax machine; it also faxes, which the GX6020 does not. There’s a USB Type-A port that lets you easily print from and scan to a USB memory key.

Paper handling is another strong point. The GX7020 has two 250-sheet letter-size drawers and a rear tray that can hold 100 sheets of legal-size paper, letterhead, labels, and other occasional-use stock. The recommended monthly duty cycle is up to 3,300 pages, with a maximum of 45,000. Duplex (two-sided) printing is supported. The automatic document feeder (ADF) on the letter-size flatbed can hold 50 letter-size sheets or 10 legal-size sheets, and it can scan both sides of each page at once. Menu settings let you copy both simplex and duplex documents to your choice of simplex or duplex output. This is where the GX7020 significantly outranks the GX6020, which has only one paper drawer and does not have an auto-duplexing ADF.


The Canon Maxify GX7020’s small size and light weight make it particularly well suited for homes and small offices that are tight on space, need to print up to 120 pages or so per day, and count low running costs as a key requirement. A three-year, 80,000-page warranty adds to its value.
