Canon Pixma MG3051 review

If you're searching for a budget printer, the Canon Pixma MG3051 all-in-one inkjet may be right up your street. It lacks useful features, like automatic double-sided printing, but that's reflected in the low price. Can this printer turn out great...

Consumer review by: Qwerty (argos.co.uk)

Good value

 

As with lots of the wireless printers - you need the USB cable initially for set up as the instructions for complete wireless did not work. The USB doesn't come with it. A bit slow and very noisy but a good print and given the cost I still think...
