Canon PIXMA iP4950 review

 

A great single-function inkjet for creative users, but it seems overpriced in comparison to Canon's own MFPs

Canon PIXMA iP4950

 

An inkjet printer with in-built duplexing, for less than £60. Sounds good, but can it live up to expectations?

Increased black text speed ; Increased duplex speed ; Direct CD/DVD/BR print

No wireless connection ; Stick out paper tray ; Easy smudge high-gloss black case

Good enough.

 

Bought this as a low cost replacement for my (expensive) ailing Epson printer. The picture quality is excellent and the initial set up was very straight forward. Colours straight out of the box looked a little over saturated for my personal taste but a...

Great Printer but ink hungry

 

I love this printer - it does everything I want But Do Not Turn It Off! Every time it is turned back on it chews through the ink. I used 4 full ink cartridges in 3 months and didn't print a single colour page. $88 worth of ink for nothing. It is...

Easy to use, good quality printing, great photos

Expensive on ink if turned on regularly
