Q & As

Canon Pixma MG4250 All-In-One Wireless Printer 4.2 5 63 63
Ink Too Expensive/Slow Very slow printer with very poor return on ink.A warning comes up within you reaching 10 prints.I kept mine a week and put it in the bin. 12 January 2015
Canon Pixma MG4250 Returned first one after two months. Problems with ink. Usual great JL service with no quibble replacement. This was probably the fifth printer I have had over 10 years. They are all cheaply made and rely on heavy ink replacement costs to make money for the manufacturers. Having become fed up with Epson I tried Canon mainly because it was strongly recommended by Computer Active Magazine. This is a very average printer. Noisy, sluggish startup, several paper jams. I could have replaced with another make, but none of the other reviews are that great. To be fair the printer is at the cheaper range and the photos I did manage to copy were very good. When will someone produce a decent printer with reasonable ink replacement costs !! 10 January 2015
Good printer for the price. Only time will tell how good this printer is but it appears to be an good printer for the price. Would recommend it. 05 January 2015
Excellent product ... quick and easy to set up, but watchout if you have an 'old' Mac This is an excellent all-round product. Printing from an iPhone/iPad is seamless. Scanning and copying are also very easy. I would highlight three points: 1. Wireless set-up is difficult ONLY IF you follow the manufacturer's (misleading) instructions in the start-up guide and on-screen on the printer! My tip is: at the wireless LAN set-up stage, press and release the OK button on the printer to 'Start set-up'; then press the Wireless WPS button on your router and keep it pressed for a few seconds; then release it; and only then press and release the OK button on the printer. The printer will then 'find' and connect automatically with your router. I have a BT Hub 4 router. 2. For Mac users: beware that backward-compatibility to Mac OS 10.5.8 applies only for Intel-based Macs. My iMac G5 runs OS 10.5.8 but is a PPC (not Intel), so the printer does not work with it! However, I will keep the printer as I am very pleased with how it works with my iPad and iPhone. 3. Scanning to e-mail (if, like mine, your computer is not compatible with this printer): if you have an iPad or iPhone, download the app 'Canon Easy-PhotoPrint' from the app store to your i-device; this allows you (among other things) to start the scanning process direct from your i-device; the document is scanned and then appears direct on your i-device; you can then e-mail the scanned document to whichever e-mail address you wish (I e-mail it to myself and then pick up on my iMac so I can store the scanned document there). I had to work this out for myself as the manufacturer's response to my question as to how to scan to e-mail was unhelpful. 01 January 2015
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
