Canon Pixma MP490 All-in-One Printer

About.com
7 June 2010
  • Summary: For under a hundred bucks, the Canon Pixma MP490 all-in-one printer is a decent buy. Like many other printers in this price range, it lacks some advanced features such as an automatic document feeder, an automatic duplexer, and wireless support. Of course you'll pay more for those features--so before you buy, decide just how important those advanced features are going to be.
  • Pros: Small, lightweight, Great photo prints, Easy to set up
  • Cons: Not so fast, Lacks automatic document feeder and paper input tray

Canon Pixma MP490 printer review

Techworld

  • Summary: The £79 price range of the Canon Pixma MP490 MFP means tradeoffs. The high ink costs are bearable if you print infrequently; otherwise, look for a model with lower-cost inks (and a higher purchase price), such as HP's OfficeJet 6500 Wireless.

  • Summary: Not quite a bargain bin printer, Canon's PIXMA MP490 inkjet multifunction is still a decent impulse buy. It provides decent quality photo and document printing and an easy-to-use interface.
  • Pros: Good photo print quality, direct scanning, easy to use
  • Cons: No front paper cassette, no PictBridge USB port, poor LCD, expensive consumables

Canon Pixma MP490 review

expertreviews.co.uk
5 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Canon's large, showy all-in-ones have made quite a name for themselves over the past few years, but mainly in the £100-£200 price band. At the cheaper end, a few corners have had to be cut, particularly with LCD displays, but the cheap-as-chips Pixma MP490 still has a screen, and several other useful features, too. Featuring a gently curved, light grey and black case, the machine is a little smaller than its predecessors and all the better for that.

  • Summary: This is a reasonably priced four ink (two cartridge) All In One unit. However it is really designed for light use simply because of the small size of the ink cartridges . Output quality is good the only drawback is the ink cost.

  • Summary: Canon's Pixma MP490 colour inkjet multifunction printer (MFP) has a superlow price and a simple-to-use design that should appeal to home and student users. If you print a lot, however, look elsewhere, as its ink costs are high.

  • Conclusion: W modelu MP490 prosty system druku, jak w najtańszym modelu, został uzupełniony o gniazdo na karty pamięci z aparatów cyfrowych oraz 46 milimetrowy kolorowy ekran ciekłokrystaliczny do przeglądania zdjęć i ewentualnie wprowadzania korekcji przed drukowaniem. Po kopiowaniu jest to następny proces, który urządzenie wykonuje samodzielnie, bez pomocy komputera. Ta sama karta pamięci może być także wykorzystana do zapisania skanu.
  • Pros: dobra jakość druku monochromatycznego, niska cena, praca bez komputera
  • Cons: wolne tempo druku, słaby OCR, przeciętne zdjęcia
