The rebranded PIXMA MegaTank models are ideal for families, professionals working from home, and small businesses because they significantly reduce ink costs, and offer a reduced individual environmental footprint while delivering vibrant high-quality print outputs. Consumers have the potential to achieve ink cost savings of up to 95 percent on typical A4 prints, while one set of Canon CISS ink bottles can carry a yield of more than 30 standard ink cartridges compared to existing standard home printers. For document printing, the black MegaTank CISS ink bottles can generate up to 6,000 pages, while colour ink bottles can generate up to 7,000 pages each – dramatically reducing the need to constantly replace inks.

In comparing the cost of ink per page between a standard-capacity ink cartridge set and refillable MegaTank CISS ink bottles, at the current RRP for the inks, a standard-capacity cartridge set can be calculated to be $0.361 per page or $181 per standard ream of paper (500 pages) using the PIXMA HOME TS3460 and the print yields of each ink calculated in accordance with the International Standards. In comparison, the cost of ink for a MegaTank CISS printer can be calculated as $0.0157 per page, or $7.85 per standard ream of paper (500 pages) using the PIXMA G3600 MegaTank. Demonstrably, the MegaTank CISS option represents a best-in-class solution for long-term for cost savings. The PIXMA MegaTank printers also reduce single-use plastics in the supply chain, making them more environmentally conscious.

Canon Australia currently offers ten PIXMA MegaTank CISS home office printers, available nationwide via leading retailers including Officeworks, Harvey Norman, Big W, Amazon, Kogan, JB Hi-Fi, Domain, Joyce Mayne retailers.
