Canon PIXMA MG2150


An economical budget all-in-one which can handle all the basic needs of a home customer or student. Colour print is plagued by pauses, though.

Comparatively good running costs, Low asking price for all-in-one, High print quality for budget printer

Messy and bulky paper feed system, Pauses during printing, Status display needs crib sheet

Good value printer


This printer was much cheaper at Argos than anywhere else. I found it easy to set up and although it is a bit noisy and long winded when printing, it is a good printer.
