Canon Pixma MP495 review

 

There's a growing range of printers and all-in-ones for budget or casual users, and Canon has always had a healthy selection of models that won't break the bank. It's newest range includes the MP495 - retailing for £79, it's currently available from a...

Good quality document output, nicely designed, built-in wireless

Photo prints and scans are quite poor, limited connectivity

The MP495 is a available for a very reasonable price and provided document printing is more important that high-quality photo output, is a nice choice for the budget-conscious consumer

What price Wi-Fi printing? Canon's new MP495 cuts a few corners to reduce the cost

Wi-Fi connectivity is a bonus at the price ; Dual cartridge system makes for simpler stocking of replacements ; Very compact and fairly quiet in operation ; Simple to use in both standalone and computer-connected or Wi-Fi print modes ; All-black finish...

No PictBridge port or card reader slots for direct printing ; No LCD menu screen for advanced standalone print settings ; Running costs with dual cartridge system can be expensive ; Wi-Fi set-up can only be carried out via a connected computer rather...

Most of the refinements that make Canon's models so popular, such as the five-ink print system, dual input trays and excellent photo quality output, are all lacking.

A good entry-level all-in-one, but with no memory card slots or camera connection. It does have Wi-Fi, though.

Good value ; Decent speed ; Not the cheapest running costs around

No memory card slot or PictBridge ; Some quality niggles with image printing

Wireless installation is more confused than some, as the setup program only refers to USB or network connections and only mentions wireless when you’re a way down the network route. You have to use the wireless setup cable as a temporary connection and...

Canon PIXMA MP495 review

 

The Canon Pixma MP495 adds wireless connectivity for easier sharing, and ditches the matte-black scanner lid for a shiny one. Otherwise, it has the same strengths and weaknesses as the MP280: extremely nice text and photos, but pricey black ink and...

Although its high black-ink costs will eventually negate your initial savings, that's only with heavy use — something the Canon Pixma MP495 isn't designed for. What it does deliver is outstanding output quality for the price.

Canon - PIXMA MP495

 

The new Canon PIXMA MP495 is a very smart-looking machine in what is increasingly becoming the chic shade of the moment - shiny piano black. It's a very compact all-in-one offering print, copy and scan functions, ...

Although this is one of the cheapest multifunction printers on the market, offering good print speeds, satisfactory print quality and the bonus of Wi-Fi connectivity, the absence of a decent LCD screen, PictBridge port or memory card slots makes it...

A squat black box, this will be unlikely to pass the lounge police – unless they are goth – but it can be used wirelessly, however for those with no fashion taste – like me – I am only interested in quality of printing, copying and scanning.

I used this both via USB and by Wi-Fi and found no real speed difference, the unit overall is reasonably quiet in operation

Canon PIXMA MP495 inkjet multifunction printer

 

The Canon PIXMA MP495 is a budget inkjet multifunction printer that includes memory card slots and inbuilt 802.11n Wi-Fi networking. It's easy to set ...

Cheap initial price, inbuilt 802.11n Wi-Fi

High ongoing consumable costs, single-character LED display can be frustrating

If your printing and scanning needs aren't very intensive, the Canon PIXMA MP495 has a low initial price and it has integrated Wi-Fi. Its reasonable print quality makes it a good choice for occasional use, but its inks are expensive.

Canon Pixma MP495 All-in-One

 

The cost of All-in-One (AIO) printers is falling drastically, and the Canon Pixma MP495 is one of the first to break triple digits with the $80 Pixma MP495. The device can print, scan, and copy wirelessly with the help of its 802.11b/g wireless...

Inexpensive all-in-one device with Wi-Fi; easy installation; small footprint; decent quality for photo snapshots.

Slow print speed; ink expensive to replace; lacks Ethernet, LED display, and memory card reader.

If you're shopping for a sub-$100 multifunction printer for intermittent use in your home, the Canon Pixma MP495 will meet your needs. It prints, scans, and copies documents, and the integrated wireless print server means you won't have a bundle of...

Canon Pixma MP495

 

Priced at $80 (as of September 3, 2010), the Canon Pixma MP495 color inkjet multifunction printer handles printing, copying, and scanning, and currently it costs just $10 more than its cousin, the Canon Pixma MP280. The Pixma MP495 adds wireless...

Exceptional text and image output ; Low purchase price ; Wireless connectivity

Black ink is expensive

This low-priced MFP offers high-class performance and even includes wireless, but supports only rudimentary paper handling.
