A good all-rounder, but rival printers are better options if you favour high quality or speed over other attributes.

Canon Pixma MG5250


I LOVE this printer. I was concerned when I opened the box to find I had to fit the print head, having never done this before and not being mechanical I wondered how easy I would find it. It was simple, just slotted in place easily, as did the ink...
