Canon PIXMA MP250 Photo All-In-One

 

With the wealth of entry level printer options available, the Canon PIXMA MP250 isn't able to rise above them all, but it does give you the basic functions you need. If you are cautious about making sure your printer looks after the environment and are...

very poor photo printing

 

I'll need to buy a different printer for my photos; it does not print satisfactory photos.

prints documents very well, cheap

photos are not clear, color poor, no help from Canon when asked, just a run-around

Consumer review by:

When it works it's great..

 

Move on to something else.

Good photos, easy to set up, can adjust ink use for ultimit usage.. When working, it's good

Have had two now, bought 1 for myself, and 1 for my 39 something daughter. Even with uploading new drivers, they just went 'kapu't in less than a year. Ink is EXPENSIVE

You can continue printing after the cartridges tell you they are empty if you refill them and read how to disable ink status monitor. You will also need to go into printer preferences/setting and under the last tab there is an option to print with...

Average Quality Prints, I have used this MP250 Printer for over a year with no problems. I have scanned, copied, and printed and am very satisfied with this. I would recommend this printer for it low price and great general printing performance

Cartridges are very expensive... I have used very cheap generic ink and the photo quality of print is not so great, but web pages and document printing is nice. As with all generic inks I found normal print setting are not very good... setting the...

Don't waste your time

 

I've had this printer for about 1 year and 2 months. I've had problems ever since purchase. First of many problems was ink cartridge not being recognized, displaying errors on the small LCD screen on printer, replacing ink cartridge did not fix...

Great prints ; large scan screen and great scans ; Able to send faxes

Expensive cartridges ; will not print if one cartridge is empty (will not print color if black is empty and vice-versa) ; constantly nags to change ink cartridge if you use refurbished ink cartridges (you have to reset the printer to ignore ink levels...

Photo Printers

 

Canon carts & paper prices are higher than any other mnfr. Save money and acquire a CIS. There are alternatives around and yes there is such a thing as an inkjet printer forum.

Very good scanner and a very descent printer for apps such as broschure, scrapbooking etc

If your into photo printing you best pass this model up. For whatever reason it seems to leave a filmy or cloudy cast over the images when compared to any of my HP prints. By themselves, without comparison, it does ok, but try as I miight it simply can...
