Canon Pixma MP190 Photo All-in-One Inkjet Printer


At $69.99, the Cannon Pixma MP190 is on the lower end of low-cost all-in-one printers. And while it's not the fastest out there, it's well suited for printing photos and scanning bulky items.

Canon Pixma MP190 review


This is one of the best MFDs available for less than £50, with surprisingly good print quality.

Canon PIXMA MP190 All-in-One Inkjet


Can Canon deliver its usual excellence at a sub-£50 price? Simon finds out.

This may be an inexpensive all-in-one printer, but it still produces excellent print quality, is easy to use and, despite Canon's outlandish claims, is reasonably quick. Print costs are a bit on the high side and it would be useful to have a PictBridge...

Entry Level PIXMA : Canon,PIXMA MP190,All-in-One


Canon has recently made some changes to the line-up of its PIXMA range of products. One of these changes involves the entry-level All-in-one device. This position is now taken up by the PIXMA MP190 model.

Review of the Canon Pixma MP190 printer and scanner

Easy to use, very quiet operation, scan quality, value for money

Light prints, tri-colour ink cartridge, slow printing times

The MP190 is good value for money, but for quality photographic printing we will have to look to Canon's higher-end models.

Canon PIXMA MP190 2910B002 Up to 19 ppm 4800 x 1200 dpi InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer - Retail


Hope it lasts longer and performs better than the HPs and Lexmarks I've delt with in the past

inexpensive, sleek design, nice two-tone color scheme. Fast print speeds very quick set up

somewhat noisy

Good printer


In hind sight, I think I should have purchased a printer with built in wired and/or wireless network support.

Scanner works well. Printer prints well in both color and b/w

Horrible Cheap Printer!!


Don't buy this printer. It's cheap, but you get what you pay for and it won't last long.

It was cheap and seemed like a great printer. I loved that it was an all in one

I bought this printer in December 08 from Newegg. It is now April and the thing has an error message that won't clear itself. I got a paper jam, cleared the paper only the printer keeps saying that there is a paper jam. I've tried turning the printer...

Canon PIXMA MP190 2910B002 Up to 19 ppm 4800 x 1200 dpi InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer - Retail


If you have basic printing and scanning needs, this machine will probably server you well.

I bought this printer for a low cost linux computer I am building for someone. After much googling, I got both the scanner and printer working perfectly with Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit beta. Scan and print quality are both very acceptable. I've only tested it...

Predictably, this printer is pretty cheaply constructed. It works great now, but I can't help but wonder how well it will hold up over the long run

OK printer

Not many.Its fast once it starts printing

Not the greatest printer.Itys very loud when its printing and takes a little while to get ready to print and once it starts it pretty fast.But the image's it prints are very light.Nothing like the HP and Epson printers ive owned before it
