Canon PIXMA MG4250


A fairly budget all-in-one, with simple paper handling and a tri-colour cartridge.

62mm LCD display, Excellent photo print quality, Good support software bundle

Very slow duplex speed, Wasteful tri-colour cartridge, Occasional long pre-processing

The Canon Pixma MG4250 is an all-in-one printer with wi-fi that can also print from a memory card. It doesn't print the best-looking photos directly from your computer, but the quality improves when printing from your camera's memory card. We've tested...

Had to purchase a printer in a hurry as my last one (canon MP520) had died.Quickly went through the best buys etc and sent my daughter off to the only place locally that sold printers (Tesco). Out of the list of 5 possible printers, she came back with...

This was recommended in Computeractive and it is a good buy. Easy to set up and there is provision to make it quiet in use. It is a front loader and the paper tray takes up space when not in use, so allow for that. It set up on wi-fi OK without...

It's cheap and it does the job. Not great on ink but then which printer is? it's time someone stood up to these companies. Anyway, although it is cheap, it has all the features that an ordinary householder might need and does not seem too noisy to me,...

Bought a new printer simply because my ancient Dell printer, although OK with Windows 8, proved incompatible with Windows 8.1.This machine, although on offer and very cheap, seems to work perfectly well and does a great deal more than I need - lots of...

Canon PIXMA MG4250


I liked the instructions for set up apart from those for the Wi-Fi. The best point for me is that the inks come in tubs that are easy to install. The previous printer was very fiddly and one of the ink holders broke.

For someone not used to Wi-Fi set up and doing it solo it would have been useful if the instructions had mentioned at the start that you need to be able to reach the buttons on the hub and the printer at the same time!

Wireless printing

Ink reservoir needs to be reset after a fixed number of prints. This requires the printer to be returned to a Canon dealer!!
