Q & As

Canon Pixma MG4250 All-In-One Wireless Printer 4.2 5 59 59
Great upgrade I bought this to replace my old, wired, printer. The price was very competitive. It was easy to set up; though it didn't find our wifi automatically and I had to input the code from our router, it wasn't difficult. The print is pretty good. A bit noisy and rather slow when duplex printing but, for the price, I am absolutely delighted with this wireless, double-siding printer, and would certainly recommend it. 16 December 2014
Practical Printer that Delivers I needed to replace my hard-wired photo and document printers with a single machine - and my scanner had died. This fits the bill perfectly and delivers great results for a reasonable price. I am sure that ink costs would be greater than previously, but these days I rarely bother to print hard copy - it's cheaper, easier and quicker to email a .pdf than even to walk to the post box 09 December 2014
Easy to set up and use Bought this a few months ago and am still pleased with it. Unlike my previous wireless printer (an HP) this one was very simple to set up. The software with it is a bit complex to learn but gradually I know how to do things quickly - like setting it to print double-sided, scan, copy in colour. Most of all, I appreciate its dependability so I can print from anywhere in the house with no more hopping back and forth to check connection/printer queues etc. 02 December 2014
Excellent wireless printer/scanner Well designed, good quality printer. Connected seamlessly, prints are very high quality, and scans easily. Has several outputs (even scan to pdf). Auto-duplex works well so don't need to turn pages which saves time as well as paper. Using supplied cartridges and haven't had to replace just yet after a couple of months use. Will defnitely recommend to others. 11 November 2014
A good printer I bought this printer 5 months ago & just realised I hadn't reviewed it but I actually like to know how things perform over time & I'm very happy with it. I know wireless printers can be a faff to set up & this one wasn't too bad although it did refuse to download the scan software - that hasn't been a problem though as I just use Windows Scan. That's the only reason I've given it 4 stars. 16 October 2014
Great value for money A good printer,easy to set up and produces good quality prints 30 September 2014
Clever little Canon Pixma MG4250. Wireless Printer As a 73 yr Old Lady who is not a Technophobe, it was simple to set-up, very compact and very pleased with the results. I have recommended it to my Niece.trouble is I want to make copies of every thing now. 30 September 2014
Unreliable This is our first wireless/air printer. Eventually managed to set it up and first print was easy with no problems. Since then it has not worked properly. It seems to have difficulty picking up the wi-if signal and when it does eventually print we just get the top third of a page and any subsequent pages don't print. We will be returning it and will try another make of printer. 26 September 2014
