Canon PIXMA MX495


The average price of an inkjet all-in-one costs around £100, but for less than half that you can pick up a Canon PIXMA MX495. This entry-level home-office printer has a surprisingly broad feature set, including full wireless connection for printing...

Large, easy-clean button pad ; Comprehensive software bundle ; Low profile

Very noisy paper feed ; Tri-colour cartridge can be wasteful ; Slow colour print
