Canon PIXMA MG6250


More of the same is the order of the day with the subtly refined Canon PIXMA MG6250. This is a well-featured all-in-one, with remote printing just around the corner.

Cloud printing soon, Touch panel controls in lid, Top quality print, fast

Only one capacity of cartridge, Paper feed quite noisy, Random housekeeping can extend print times

Canon Pixma MG6250 review


The Canon Pixma MG6250 joins the new series of multifuction inkjets from Canon, second from top of the range.

The quality is generally very good. It has almost every option you might want – from dual paper trays and direct-disc printing to Wi-Fi and Cloud Computing. Add to that the appetising print results – particularly if you’re looking to print on...

Canon Pixma MG6250 Review


Boasting wireless capabilities, we reviewed the Canon Pixma MG6250 to find out how it performs.

Slightly warm colours on some prints, glossy casing may appear cheap

Canon Pixma MG6250 review


Canon's Pixma MG6250 uses six different inks to produce high-quality photo prints

The downside of the MG6250 is that those six inks can push up the running costs a little. Canon provides a confusing selection of different cartridges and multipacks, with widely varying page yields, but we estimate that colour printing will cost about...

Canon's latest PIXMA MFP puts image quality first. The joy of the current multifunction printer market is...

Choosing to boost colour accuracy with the addition of a grey ink cartridge

The hybrid control system with only partial touch screen capability

Canon has pulled out all the stops with their latest PIXMA multifunction printer, both in terms of the multiplicity of functions available and a massive improvement on picture quality – thanks to its new grey cartridge and higher resolution scanner.

Canon Pixma MG6250


Good print quality, fairly east to set up for wireless use

Takes a bit too long to start printing after it has been sent to the printer when used wirelessly
