Q & As

Canon Pixma MG4250 All-In-One Wireless Printer 4.2 5 50 50
What a mistake!!! I thought I should up date my HP 380 Photo Colour Print as it was 10 years old. Read the reviews & thought great price and quality from a well respected company. It takes for ever making a lot of noise before it is ready to print and if you decide to print photos onto photo paper it smudges regardless of how long you leave it to dry. I can't believe that Cannon have produced such a poor quality product. In addition to this I have stupidly brought 2 large print cartridges of Black & Colour. I have owned a Cannon photo printer a Pixima which did instant type prints which I still use and is great. In future though I will avoid and go back to the quiet and clear quality of an HP product. I find it hard to believe that I have the same product as reviewed by others. 08 September 2014
Great value printer The printer was very easy to set up and is not to big. For what you get with this printer it is great value for money and also a well known make. 04 September 2014
printing from iPad I bought the Canon4250 because of a good review in Computeractive magazine so I could print using wifi from my iPad. It does the job I bought it for very well and was easy to set up and use. It also does all the usual things one expects of a printer scanner although I had yet to try many of the functions. But for a cheap way to print off emails etc from your IPad it is great. 20 August 2014
Great Product The set up was easy one less wire as it is wireless two sided printing and good photos GREAT 20 August 2014
OK for the price paid... so far A review of something like a printer is of little use until it's reliability and cost per page over a few months have been tested by actually using it. Most manufacturers tell porkies especially where cost per page is concerned. On the face of it it's good value for money. However it has one or two flaws. Firstly the design of the control panel and set up routine is complex if you have been used to HP or Epson printers. Second problem is that its quite noisy. Otherwise OK and no problems over a wireless network. 19 August 2014
Good value product This is my first printer , I have found it easy to install and use. It has lots of great features and I think it is good value for the price. 19 August 2014
Useless software Printer going back as it will not print reliably from iPad and the software will not reload. Instructions unclear. Even help from tech minded daughter hasn't sorted the issues. 17 August 2014
Canon Pixma MG4250 Great price, great printer - well worth considering 13 August 2014
