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'.
Summary: This printer is so eager to grab the sheet of paper, it pulls it through crooked and then chews it up! It does this on quality 120gsm paper too, not just the thin rubbishy stuff. It's now out of its 30 day return to Amazon period, so I've got to pay to send it to Canon. Not worth it. Avoid.
Summary: Extremely unhappy about the purchase. Whenever I try and print I am told that the paper-tray is empty, when it's in fact full. My father-in-law bought the exact same model and has the exact same problem. Don't buy it!
Summary: Below is my original review but this is the update - after a promising start I've now given up with this machine even though I've not had it long. First few documents went through it fine and, although the print quality was pretty basic, the duplexing facility was a real boon.
