The first thing you need to know: This is a wired model, meaning it needs to plug into your PC's USB port. If you want something wireless, something that can be shared on your home Wi-Fi network with multiple devices, keep looking.
The Pixma MG2522 was designed for small jobs, with a mere 60-sheet input tray and print speeds that are on the slow side. It relies on two ink cartridges: one black, one quad-color. Because consumables are always a key consideration with any printer purchase, I checked: You can buy a set of third-party cartridges for as low as $27, less than half what you'd pay for Canon-branded ink.
The printer also has basic scan and copy capabilities, the big limitation being the one-sheet-at-a-time flatbed. If you need a machine with a multi-page document feeder, keep looking.
Although the user reviews here aren't exactly glowing — 3.8 stars (out of 5) from over 3,400 buyers — a low price makes it easy to overlook certain gripes, like the lack of Wi-Fi. Heck, for some folks the scanner alone would be worth $29.
What do you think? Good buy at this price, or does it make sense to spend more and get more?
PARIS (Reuters) -France has registered 47,177 new confirmed COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours, health ministry data showed on Tuesday, the highest one-day tally since early April at the height of the third wave of the pandemic. The latest data pushed the cumulative total of cases in France since the start of the pandemic to 7.67 million and the seven-day moving average of new coronavirus infections to well over 32,000. On April 8, France recorded nearly 85,000 infections.
Eight further cases of the Omicron variant have been confirmed in England. It brings the total number in the country to 13, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said. The news comes as Boris Johnson held a press conference at Downing Street on the Omicron variant on Tuesday.
The World Health Organization has called for a new international accord on tackling pandemics, following the emergence of the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus.During a special session of the World Health Assembly on November 29, WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the new variant “underlines just how perilous and precarious our situation is.”“Omicron demonstrates just why the world needs a new accord on pandemics,” he said. “Our current system disincentivizes countries from alerting others to threats that will inevitably land on their shores,” he said.Tedros called on richer nations to commit to vaccine equity in order to bring an end to the pandemic. “More than 80 percent of the world’s vaccines have gone to G20 countries. Low income countries, most of them in Africa, have received just 0.6 percent of all vaccines,” he said. “The longer vaccine inequity persists, the more opportunity this virus has to spread and evolve in ways we cannot predict.”Tedros also said South Africa and Botswana “should be thanked for detecting and sequencing and reporting this variant, not penalized,” and said it was not yet known whether the variant is associated with more transmissions, severe disease, or vaccine resistance.
