Canon PIXMA MG8250

 

The PIXMA MG8250 is Canon's new top-of-the-range photo all-in-one, with all the extras and a beautiful makeover.

Beautifully implemented touch panel, Superb five-ink photo prints, Twin paper trays

Improved, but still slow, duplex print, No high capacity cartridges, Comparatively high running costs

Will not purchase a Canon again

 

When all ink tanks are full the operation of this device is acceptable at best, not good but acceptable. It is slow to start printing, takes about 30-45 seconds to start from off position (printing 1 sided B&W only not photo quality prints). The...

Quality of the colour prints was high

Slow, expensive, Scanner and B&W prints difficult to operate if you do not have colour ink.
