Canon PIXMA MG3150

 

The Canon PIXMA MG3150 is a near-entry-level all-in-one, but with a couple of extras aiming to raise it above the competition. Don't rush to print duplex, though.

Easy PhotoPrint Mobile printing, Good plain and photo prints, Neat look when closed

Very slow duplex prints, Awkward display codes, Pauses during colour print

Very satisfied

 

I decided to buy this printer to go with the new Medion laptop I acquired recently (from Sainsburys) because I wanted to be able to take advantage of the latter's wireless capabilities.
