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...

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...
