Excerpt: I have been very pleased with my purchase of a Canon MG3250. Set up was really easy with simple step by step instructions. Connection to wifi was again really easy and a very useful feature making it very neat with no cables. I am also able to print from my iphone and ipad as well as my laptop which is an added benefit and useful tool. It is compact, neat, the quality of the scanning and printing is excellent. It has enough features without being over complicated.
Pros: Compact and neat, excellent printing and scanning quality
Cons: If scanning in large numbers of pages ie . 40 plus, it will not save them in one file .
Summary: I purchased this printer in November 2012. As I recall, it took a whole afternoon to install it and get it working using a wireless connection. The instructions that came with it only added to the difficulty. I found it noisy, slow, temperamental and able to drain ink cartridges like there's no tomorrow. In September 2014, the printer stopped working. I suppose you could argue that £40 (or thereabouts) for a printer which lasted just shy of 2 years is a good thing.

Summary: Do not buy this printer! The cartridges are ridiculously expensive and it gets through them quickly. It keeps getting paper jams by pulling in extra paper when it's finished printing, you clear one error and another pops up, it constantly goes through it's warm up even when you've not asked it to print and the heads are out of alignment and I cannot remedy it. I've not even had it working more than 4 months. Please note this is not a reflection or comment on the seller.
Summary: There is only 1 main problem with it and its not the devices fault its the hardware I use but never the less it affects my experience with the product therefore I deem it valid to leave a 4 of 5 rating
Summary: I have had 2 of these little monsters and the second one has just outstayed it's welcome. Interesting to see most of the 5 star reviews are recent purchases, where the reviewer hasn't given the Pixma MG3250 a chance to start ruining page after page of expensive business card stock, or waited all evening for it to come to some sort of decision about printing the first page of something - or not. Well, mine has just wasted it's last page.
Summary: A very bad experience. Had this printer a few months and not done much printing. It is very flimsy compared to the last printer I had ( a hp photosmart). It was also exceptionally noisy to start up and also in operation. It is also very slow to start up and to print. My main gripe though, is that I kept getting false error messages about the paper tray being empty when it was not, which meant I couldn't print at all.
Summary: This printer does exactly what it says on the tin. It is user-friendly, relatively easy to set up and, so far, worth the money I paid. The wifi feature is working excellently. The price of cartridges seems okay.
Summary: Printer was well packed and was delivered very fast. Took a little while to set up on my PC but the wireless connectivity works great now. Excellent quality print so have no grumbles. Very pleased.
