Canon PIXMA MG5450
Advantages: Excellent Monochrome and Colour; Economical; Very Straightforward.
Disadvantages: A Little Slow To Initiate Printing; A Little Noisy For Some.
Good looks are certainly not everything but the Canon MG5450 is quite a sleek looking machine. Not all that important, but rather pleasing. I am a bit of a Canon fan all round so I will say straight away that I use Canon Ink and paper. I personally think this is important and it assuredly gets me the results that I am looking for.
As usual on arrival it was well packed and presented. I found the instructions very straight forward and easy to follow, and I'm no whizz kid. All that you needed was provided and set up was not a problem.
The placement of the paper load and output trays was particularly useful as it meant that you could place the printer against a wall, or on a shelf, or even in a cupboard. It doesn't take up too much room the output tray opens automatically when it receives something to print.
It produces excellent print quality in both monochrome for text documents, and in colour for my photos. I love the way it automatically selects the correct paper tray for each print job. Two sided printing is also available. Its versatility is amazing and the quality of both printing and scanning are great. In scanning I really appreciate the option of Jpeg or PDF format scans which is really useful. Top panel controls make scanning and printing very easy. It prints from our phones and also from Tablets, so I am told. The provision of two black cartridges is also a big plus.
A tip for when setting up on wireless, you need to be in arms reach of your router as you need to press buttons on both at the same time.
Summary: Versatiliy and Quality at an Affordable Price
