Rapid print speed, top quality results and extra features like dual paper trays and support for direct CD/DVD printing make the Canon Pixma iP4950 a great buy.

Direct CD/DVD printing ; Fast print speed ; Great quality results ; Dual paper trays

Lacks Wi-Fi ; No screen ; No memory card reader

Overall, it's hard to find much wrong with the iP4950. It pumps out documents and photos at a rapid pace, produces excellent quality results, has dual paper trays and has the advantage of offering direct CD/DVD printing. At this price, you couldn't...

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

Canon has looked at the minor problems in its PIXMA iP4850 and addressed each in the design of the iP4950. To offer an inkjet printer with dual paper sources, direct CD print, excellent photo output – including directly from cameras – and increased...

Canon Pixma iP4950


Canon's flagship inkjet gets its annual update. Is it still the finest home photo printer out there?

Unbeatable photo quality and good speed, although it's barely changed from last year

Canon Pixma iP4950


Upon switching on it takes rather a long time setting its self up;during this time I suspect that it is cleaning the ink nozzles therefore using ink.

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
