Canon PIXMA iP4950


An inkjet printer with in-built duplexing, for less than £60. Sounds good, but can it live up to expectations?

Great Printer but ink hungry


I love this printer - it does everything I want But Do Not Turn It Off! Every time it is turned back on it chews through the ink. I used 4 full ink cartridges in 3 months and didn't print a single colour page. $88 worth of ink for nothing. It is...

Easy to use, good quality printing, great photos

Expensive on ink if turned on regularly
