Canon PIXMA MG4250


A fairly budget all-in-one, with simple paper handling and a tri-colour cartridge.

62mm LCD display, Excellent photo print quality, Good support software bundle

Very slow duplex speed, Wasteful tri-colour cartridge, Occasional long pre-processing

Canon Pixma MG4250 review: A low-cost all-in-one inkjet with a great set of features


An attractive and versatile all-in-one printer, with a wide range of features you wouldn't expect at this price

Cheap ; Fast ; Double-sided printing

Running costs aren't low

If that’s not a major concern, though, you can’t go wrong. The Pixma MG4250 is a very attractive and versatile all-in-one printer, with a great range of features you wouldn’t expect to find at this price.

The Canon Pixma MG4250 is an all-in-one printer with wi-fi that can also print from a memory card. It doesn't print the best-looking photos directly from your computer, but the quality improves when printing from your camera's memory card. We've tested...

This was recommended in Computeractive and it is a good buy. Easy to set up and there is provision to make it quiet in use. It is a front loader and the paper tray takes up space when not in use, so allow for that. It set up on wi-fi OK without...

It's cheap and it does the job. Not great on ink but then which printer is? it's time someone stood up to these companies. Anyway, although it is cheap, it has all the features that an ordinary householder might need and does not seem too noisy to me,...

Bought a new printer simply because my ancient Dell printer, although OK with Windows 8, proved incompatible with Windows 8.1.This machine, although on offer and very cheap, seems to work perfectly well and does a great deal more than I need - lots of...

This is the second printer I've bought from Canon. I had just bought a new Lenova laptop from Peter Jones and I went in to buy a printer to go with it. When I got it home I summoned my computer guy to come and connect it for me. Sadly it does not...

Good value basic printer


We are very pleased with this printer. The print quality is good and it is quite easy to use. It does take longer to copy than our last printer, but that isn't a big problem. We were given very good advice by the staff at John Lewis in Southampton.
