Canon PIXMA MG6450


Canon's PIXMA MG6450 is a mid-range multifunction inkjet that performs well enough, but does it offer the features to stand out?

Easy access cartridges ; Separate pigment black ink ; 75mm LCD display

Slow duplex print ; No touch-screen ; Awkward paper trays

There’s a USB socket at the back, but most customers will go for the wireless connection, as this gives direct links to mobile devices, like Android and iOS, and remote print via PIXMA Cloud Link.

Poor WiFi reception

Replacing an Epson wireless printer with this one I found it was worse at picking up WiFi than the Epson, which worked fine in the same location. The printing was fine but very slow and wouldn't print photographs. In the end I found the problem was the...
