Canon PIXMA MG3520 Ink Cartridges
The Canon MG3520 was a very popular printer when it was first released by Canon in July 2013. The initial price point for the printer was $79.99 and it was offered at all the major consumer supply stores including Staples, Best Buy, Office Depot and other printer supply outlets. Over time, the printer price dropped, and it was not uncommon to find it on special for around $49.99 or even less by the 2014-2015 date range. The technology used in the Canon MG3520 printer is such that the printer itself does not have any printheads, this makes the printer significantly cheaper, and in caveat, makes the cartridges significantly more expensive than other models which have printheads in the printer. The printer is actually known as the Canon Pixma MG3520, and it accepts the Canon PG240 Black and Canon CL241 Color ink cartridges. It also accepts higher capacity cartridges, specifically the PG-240XL and CL-241XL versions, and it even accepts a double high capacity (Canon PG-240XXL), only on the black. The cartridges are a unique combination of dye ink for vivid colors and black pigment ink for sharp text.The printer is available in 3 colors (Black, White and Red).
