Do the inks on this get clogged up like on Epsom ones if you don't use for a while

Pros: Great text and photo prints, quick text prints, wi-fi, automatic double-sided printing, good colour copies

I also bought one back in August at the same price but would recommend it, I'm not a heavy user, mainly homework and the like but currently have 2 smartphones, 2 laptops and an Ipad linked via wireless and still using the original ink it came with! Wireless was easy to setup

You also get a Canon free paper pack worth £3.99 if you click on Special offers link...
#15
hope everyone knows the politics of the world of printers.

these canon printers have a set life. I'm sure everyone has heard of planned obsolescence / programmed obsolescence.

the print head will fail which renders the printer to a paperweight and will require replacement... it costs £60... more than the printer is worth.

currently there is a large number of people who aim to bring a class action lawsuit to canon for this fault
#16
heat added, but does anyone even use printers anymore?
#17
Installed and using mine today from Argos. It's fairly chunky but otherwise excellent performer at a brilliant price having previously been £69.99 and £59.99 at Currys. Third party inks are now a decent price too.
#18
they really expensive to run.

even if you only want to print couple of pages the printer will consume nearly quarter of cartridge inks.

do what I did and get Currys / PC World to price match Argos - you also get 10% of teh difference so actually £48.99 from PCW - and they give you a choice of white or black

works fine with 3rd party ink and very easy to set up

Good printer (voted Hot) for the price but it has been on for £50 before on Amazon. Also cheaper 3rd part Inks are available for this Printer.

How does this compare to the Canon Pixma MG4250 All-In-One Wireless Printer, I've seen that at JL with a 2yr guarantee for the same price.
#22
For third-party inks, try the following. Not as cheap as eBay, but excellent quality and service, as well as 50% more ink than Canon originals. I have an MG5250 and use these (actually the 520/521 versions).
Prink PGI550 / CLI551 Cartridges
NB - for the benefit of NinjaBaz and others, IGNORE THE 6-CARTRIDGE SET as this will be for a different printer. Page down to the 5-cartridge set or the mix'n'match set.

This has nothing to do with specific inkjet printers - they will all do this if left long enough. The question then is why do you have a printer if you are using it that little?

I only need it rarely and get it done at the print shop for a couple of pence a copy. for me that makes more sense.

Without looking on Canon's site, I would guess that the 4250 has lower specs than this one (purely because of the lower number). It is probably to do with the cartridges - the 4250 may use a tri-colour cartridge rather than the 3 separate colour cartridges in the 5550. Also, the 4250 may not do two-sided (duplex) printing, perhaps, or maybe it has a lower print speed.

I bought a canon MP560 a few years ago after having had several Epsons with clogged heads. I have not had this problem with the canon despite my not using it for months on end.

Like the look of this. But can someone answer. Does the paper go in a cartridge under the paper. Enclosed and hidden? Ours doesn't get used very often so the paper would get dusty or messed about with if its an external loader.

Paper goes in front bottom extending tray, then comes out in front upper extending tray. When not in use paper sits mostly inside the printer, but about third of a page is still outside. The trays are open, not a cartridge type, like laser printers.

Does this have a separate tray for 6x4 photo paper?

I've had an older Canon printer and the inks did clog up. I think it's just a standard printer issue to be honest :(
#36
Must stop buying hukd's... must stop buying hukd's.. ooops, ordered collecting in an houroO

Brilliant price, brilliant printer, also, can carry on using when inks run out and replace only the cartridge that has run out..

Love the big fat black ink capacity on the xl cart as well.. nice one @esc
#37
Great printer. It will be amazing to be honest. But. I like when canon have paper cartridges.
#38
Reserved and collected at Argos - was given a canon MG5650 instead though

From the canon website spec's - the only difference i see is that the 5650 has:
- PictBridge (allows cameras to connect and print from printers directly)
- Canon Print Service Plugin (Android)
- Lower acoustic noise level (by half decibal)
- Less watts being used in standby

I think compatible inks are slightly more expensive at the moment for the 5650, buts thats as expected as its newer. Prices will drop soon enough

You're probably right. But they gave me one. They've given me a newer version of a epson printer i bought for family last year too, not uncommon at Argos.
