Product Overview

Canon PIXMA G3260 (G3560) is a consumer-grade 3-in-1 wireless printer in the MegaTank-series. Compared to the home office- / small business-oriented G6020 (G6050), the G3260 is sleeker in design at the cost of features and performance, notably the absence of LAN connection and slower speeds.
Nevertheless, the PIXMA G3260 delivers what most families would find a compelling set of useful features, including WiFi, scan, copy, and cloud-connectivity.
The Canon PIXMA G3520 is essentially a slow-speed-variant of the G3260; the two share the exact same design, dimensions, and functionalities.
Canon markets the printer as G3260 in the US and G3560 in the EU.
Canon also offer the G2260 (G2560) and the G2520, which correspond with the G3260 (G3560) and the G3520 without WiFi connectivity and thus cloud functions.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
Canon's Pixma G3260 is among the least expensive consumer printers to use on an ink basis. Its $100 price reduction makes it among the less costly bulk-ink models to buy. Canon sweetens the deal by throwing in two additional bottles of black ink, increasing the number of potential black pages.

The Canon G3260 is very good for family use. It features a flatbed scanner high resolution and color depth, which is great for digitizing photos. It offers Wi-Fi printing and is compatible with a mobile app, but sadly, it can't print directly from a USB thumb drive or SD card. It yields an exceptionally high number of pages at a very low cost.
