Summary: If you're shopping for a sub-$100 multifunction printer for intermittent use in your home, the Canon Pixma MP495 will meet your needs. It prints, scans, and copies documents, and the integrated wireless print server means you won't have a bundle of cables tangling up the office. We have a few flaws to nitpick, but otherwise Canon scores with the Pixma MP495.
Pros: Inexpensive all-in-one device with Wi-Fi; easy installation; small footprint; decent quality for photo snapshots.
Cons: Slow print speed; ink expensive to replace; lacks Ethernet, LED display, and memory card reader.
Conclusion: For $79.99, the Canon Pixma MP495 offers three functional devices, decent print speeds (for its class), a sleek design, wireless connectivity and a good selection of software. The MP495 could be a great fit for a family on a budget (aren't we all?) or for a student who needs to copy and scan but has limited space.
Pros: Ease of use, Low initial cost, Wireless connectivity
Cons: Less vibrant photo color, Color document pause
Conclusion: The Pixma MP495 is a capable printer with a nice range of key features at a low price. Its photo capabilities do let it down somewhat, but at this price it’s hard to be too critical over an entry-level model that still represents good value for money. As a casual option to improve productivity in the home it would suit if professional-quality image output isn’t a priority.
Pros: Good quality document output, nicely designed, built-in wireless
Cons: Photo prints and scans are quite poor, limited connectivity
Summary: A squat black box, this will be unlikely to pass the lounge police – unless they are goth – but it can be used wirelessly, however for those with no fashion taste – like me – I am only interested in quality of printing, copying and scanning.
This $99 Canon PIXMA printer is good for occasional document and photo printing but don't expect excellent quality or speed

Summary: If your printing and scanning needs aren't very intensive, the Canon PIXMA MP495 has a low initial price and it has integrated Wi-Fi. Its reasonable print quality makes it a good choice for occasional use, but its inks are expensive.
Pros: Cheap initial price, inbuilt 802.11n Wi-Fi
Cons: High ongoing consumable costs, single-character LED display can be frustrating
Excerpt: The word 'printer' seems too humble for most of the all-in-one devices currently on the market, which sprout full-colour LCD menu and photo preview screens, memory card slots aplenty and high-resolution scanners for photocopying.
Conclusion: System druku w PIXMA MP495 składa się z dwóch naboi. W obu mamy atrament i dysze do jego wystrzeliwania na papier. Czarny ma 320 dysz i atrament pigmentowy, a kolorowy trzy sekcje po 384 do każdego z trzech barw podstawowych. Barwne artamenty są rozpuszczalnikowe. Skaner ma rozdzielczość 1200x2400 dpi. Urządzeniem można sterować przez port USB albo bezprzewodowo. Papier podaje się do szczeliny na sto kartek znajdującej się w tylnej części urządzenia.
Pros: niska cena, dobra jakość druku monochromatycznego
Cons: wolne tempo druku, słaby OCR, przeciętne zdjęcia
