Great find thanks :-)

Good find. So much technology packed together for a lowly price.
My my only problem with these are again to go ink or laser. Running costs. Hmmm.

Not for me. I've had three Canon printers in over five years, an IP 4300,an MG 5350, and, lastly, an MG 7150. These all developed faults which resulted in having to bin them. On two of these, the print heads failed (a replacement is more expensive than a new printer!) and as a last resort, I tried flushing them out...nope! I now have an HP Envy 4520, which I bought at Curry's for £39.99 and it's a far better printer than any of the Canons I had.

Maybe I've been lucky (or you've been very unlucky), as I've owned an MG5250 for nearly 4 years now.
It's used pretty much every day, and it's been (and still is) faultless.
I use prink.co.uk for very good quality compatible inks for mine, but for the MG4250 they're quite expensive
Cheapest compatibles found after a quick look on eBay are £16 for the pair (PG-540 black and CL-541 colour).

Printers are always available dirt cheap right? Is clearly in the hope they get you tied into the refill provision contracts, or you pay the premium price for the "official" manufacturers produced ink cartridges. Of course third party cartridges, and refill packs are much cheaper and do the job with any noticeable difference to most.

Cheap printer but mega expensive Inks and reliability issues. Better pay more and buy Laser. Best thing I ever did.

I have a canon mp630; full set of 5 inks x 4 sets about £10-11 off ebay. Way cheaper than a laser. Had b&w laser before.

If you don’t need a scanner I’d recommend the ip7250. Wireless capability and individual inks which (as per post above) can be bought for around £1 each. Last one printed several thousand pages and cost about £100 over 3-4 years including buying it in the first place.

Some heat, great price for a WiFi printer!

I've made my peace with my IP4700... It went into the loft as soon as I bought Kodak Verite with very generous ink and scanning functions. Problem is - finding third party inks for the Kodak (and it's annoying software).

Wireless printing is a key but I've stuck the Canon onto a homegroup and just boot up the PC it's linked to when printing (no big deal). The beauty is the cost of the third party inks. The Canon was a far superior printer too.

I do use the Kodak if I need to scan but that's is just not too often.

Good price for this printer though it seems OP.

Argos will sell you a 3-year warranty for £9.99 which enables you to swap out for a new one no questions asked. Hang onto your Envy receipt - you might need it - from my experience these are un-reliable and not a patch on the Canons.

NOT TRUE ! Sorry to embarass you on here but the Genuine Canon 540 and 541 XL High capacity inks (massive page yields) come in around £32.50 a set.
4.5 Stars out of 600+ reviews and your "reliability issues" claim also goes right out the window !

The Canon Pixma MG3650 Wi-Fi Colour Printer is also on offer @ only £34.99 with great value and great reviews :

Sanest statement in this entire post!!! Cannot stress how the valid above statement is.

I picked up a Lexmark Laser Printer from Amazon for 53 Quid and some - but there are some wonderful Brother printers (mono) with all the features of this one for around £50. Considering how expensive ink-cartridges are, it is truly mind-boggling why people chose to invest in ink-jets anymore.

I have Canon laser printer at work - great printer and from a reputed company (Scanning is a bit iffy with Win10) - so i have nothing against the brand-name, only the technology.

Brother HL-1212W is available from Amazon for less than £50 - replacement cartridges are around 14-20 Pounds.

Brother DCP-L2500D is available for £75.00 and is a multifunction printer.

Go laser save you a tonne of grief for later.

One cardige for colours

I thoroughly recommend Canon printers....I have had a MG5450 for years now and it has been brilliant...used regularly and never gone wrong.

Also I use compatible cartridges from Ebay and its £8 for 6 FULL SETS.....yes that's 30 FOR £8! and they print great....I dont use them for photos so cant vouch for how true to life the colour is but for general documents etc they are great.

Some of the more modern Canon printers though the cartridges are more expensive

Have had Epson/Kodak/Hewlett Packard printers and my Canon is without doubt the best....when it finally dies my next one will be a Canon

Same experience here with Canon printers, myself and my relatives have binned 5 of them with a slightly faulty 6th still limping on. That is over about 6 years. We've moved to Epson now without any complaints a few years in, although the Canons were better at photo printing which is why we stuck with them.

I have a laser and an inkjet. I tell the kids to use the laser wherever possible and only use the inkjet if they need colour. This works fine. I've had 2 Brother and 1 Canon inkjet over the last 10 years. Each one has only cost around £40 and has lasted over 3 years. I think £12 / year is OK for such a low cost device. At these prices colour printers are consumables.
I personally would advise looking at an inkjet with separate colour carts though as opposed to a 2 cartridge printer. Why bin a colour cartridge just because cyan has run out for example, what about Magenta and Yellow that may be full?
Just my 2p.

I had an IP4000 and an IP4300. Cheap to run for an inkjet with great quality for the price but both died without warning. Flimsy power supplies just carked it on both - a known Canon failing. No way to repair either.
Now I run a laser. Super cheap to run, quicker to print and no print head issues if not used daily.

In any case Argos are offerring a 3-year replacement warranty for £9.99 which still makes this printer excellent value for the money.

I've been trying Epson, HP, Canon, Brother over the last few years, in some cases two of each. All died and went to the dump. I now treat inkjets as disposable items.

Or treat them as "replaceable items" with the 3-year guarantee offered - honestly 3 years of printing for £45.98 ( £35.99 + £9.99 extra warranty) is still good value for money in my opinion !

Embarrassment is not an issue here. I use a Laser after many Inkjet variants. Laser IS cheaper overall, lasts considerably longer and breaks down mush less often. I run my busy office with Laser units and wouldn't dream of using expensive and poor quality Inkjets. You however can buy what you like.
