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

Canon PIXMA MP495 review


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...

Canon PIXMA MP495


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

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.

With a pile of paper, various images and electronic documents all ready and waiting, it is time to test a new multifunction device. This time the manufacturer is Canon .

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...

Canon Pixma MP495


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


This $99 Canon PIXMA printer is good for occasional document and photo printing but don't expect excellent quality or speed

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


Design The Pixma MP495 is part of Canon's most recent round of consumer-level all-in-one printers and receives an updated look that's both visually stunning and functional at the same time. In contrast to last year's silver-and-black color scheme, the...

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...
