Summary: Took ages to set up, instructions made no sense so had to use google and a canon complaints forum to work it out. Paper jams every single time so end up printing in multiples of no more than five pieces of paper at a time.
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.

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...
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...
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.
Summary: 5 minutes of whirring and shuddering and then an error message. The "Low Ink" icon should be incorporated into the Canon logotype – brand new ink cartridges and hey presto – 3 black and white prints and my Yellow has run out again! It's either that or "no paper", when the paper tray is full.
Summary: Bought printer for its wifi option and it's rubbish. After replacing my wifi router it took days of reinstalling software to get the thing connected again. More importantly, apparently the printer needs 70% signal strength on the wifi, otherwise it reports as offline.
Summary: Runs out of ink almost as soon as you put a new cartridge in. Wireless usually doesn't work. Rarely scans. Photo's - well you would be wasting you time. It can't even print a boarding pass that goes through a scanner properly (how can it not handle a barcode?).
Summary: I dislike this printer intensely. I'd had Canon's before and apart from the high cost of inks, no problems. This printer is tetchy and unreliable. Its looks and feels cheap. It's pics go into something called an 'Image Garden'.
