Canon PIXMA MG5250 multifunction inkjet printer


The Canon PIXMA MG5250 is an inkjet printer that also scans, copies, prints directly from memory cards or USB sticks, and wirelessly connects to your ...

Good print quality in High quality mode, easy to use with on-screen prompts via 2.4in LCD, cheap monochrome document printing

Not the fastest document or photo printer, set up takes a while

The Canon PIXMA MG5250 is an all-in-one printer that manages to fit in almost everything a home user could want. A reasonable asking price makes it a good purchase, and ongoing costs are fine as long as you aren't printing large volumes of documents or...

A pepped-up sibling for the PIXMA MG5150, this machine includes worthwhile improvements in several areas.

Canon PIXMA MG5250 review


The Canon PIXMA MG5250 inkjet multifunction is easy to set up, although the process does take some time if you're not familiar with it. You'll need to unbox the printer and remove all its protective padding and wrapping, and then install the print head...

If the black ink yield can be believed, the Canon PIXMA MG5250 is a relatively cheap printer to run. It's a strong performer in almost all other areas as well, making its £149 asking price more than reasonable.

Canon Pixma MG5250 review


Recent years have seen Canon's Pixma machines become the byword for inkjet quality, so we were intrigued to see if the new MG5250 could continue with this trend. It's certainly a good-looking printer. As with the majority of Pixma products, it's clad...

A good all-rounder, but rival printers are better options if you favour high quality or speed over other attributes.

Canon's MG 5250 Versatile SOHO MFD : Canon Pixma MG5250 Multi-Function Printer


For many people the single function inkjet printer is giving way to the multi-function machine that, as well as printing, copies and scans. The Canon MG 5250 is the latest such device and is targeted at those who want a SoHo (small office/home office)...

Overall, the MG5250 is a versatile MFD that produces good results and is convenient and easy to use and provides a range of facilities in a reasonably sized package. Although it has a SRP of £149, it can be found on Amazon for less than £100 which...

Canon - PIXMA MG5250


The UK VAT rate, as we all know, has risen to 20 per cent - and that has made all of us much more cautious when buying electrical goods. However, one area that seems to be ...

If you're happy to pay the extra £30 or so, the PIXMA MG5250 improves on its cheaper sibling by adding wireless connectivity and direct-from-disk printing, while also speeding up the printing process - photo quality is excellent but black text...

Canon Pixma MG5250


Great features for the price. After a while setting up using wireless network worked first time. Paper handling is good even with double sided

Ink looks expensive so will probably try compatibles. Looks like these are at the end of the production run so may not be available much longer
