Conclusion: Overall very happy, the size was a bit daunting at first but cannon have managed to pack a lot of good features into the printer, my favourite would be printing a screen shot or photo from my mobile phone from anywhere in the house or back yard. Our girls do home work and print from their desks without the need of USB sticks or cables.... a very nice feature.
Pros: Reliable, Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors, Fast Print Speed, Easy to use
Cons: Large Footprint, Heavy/Bulky, High Ink Consumption
Conclusion: I purchased the printer based on the high end features including scan quality and ability to print on CD's. However, I have been disappointed with the brightness of printed photo's and the high use of ink. The ink tanks are very small and expensive, and even in draft mode the printer lays down so much ink on plain paper that it wrinkles up the paper and takes a long time to dry. The results of printing photo's have also been a let down.
Conclusion: This is my 4th printer in an unreasonably short time - and it's my first Canon. I am so impressed with it after having such a bad run with three other well known brands. The last one I purchased only 2 years ago and I never even managed to install the wireless components fully. - Enough about them - I did the research, went all out and got myself the top of the range MG 8250. What a great choice! An easy set up bundled with easy to use software.
Pros: Reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors, Fast Print Speed, Easy to use
Conclusion: I have had my MG 8250 since January. I have just finished research using vintage 1945 wartime documents. The scanner and printer have done a marvellous job of bringing these old documents and photos back to clear images (over 120 files). Ink usage was very economical. Duplex printing is very handy. Auto scan was very helpful and fast. While the printer is for home use I would recommend to anyone.
Pros: Reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, Durable, Low Ink Consumption, Lightweight/Portable, Sharp Tones & Colors, Fast Print Speed, Easy to use
Summary: I'd like this printer. But it is a big problem to find. I heard that there is a problem with deliveries of the PIXMA MG8250, due to floods in Thailand in October 2011. Do you have anyone have any more information when supplies will be restored?
Summary: Qua kwaliteit van de prints voldoet hij aan de eisen maar hij heeft één gigantisch nadeel! Hij zuipt inkt! Na ongeveer 10 afdrukken 10x15 waren de drie basiskleuren plus de grijze al half leeg. Ik heb hierover contact gehad met Canon die mij wisten te vertellen dat de printer nooit uitgeschakeld mag worden omdat na een kwartier in de
Excerpt: Hola a todos, Os cuento un poquito acerca de esta impresora que tenemos en el trabajo desde hace alrededor de medio año. Se trata de una impresora con una calidad de impresión bastante buena para ser de uso más bien casero y con unas buenas prestaciones teniendo en cuenta que costó 255 euros que le da una buena relación calidad-precio. Es una impresora de inyección de tinta normal y corriente.
