The Canon Pixma MG2250 is an all-in-one machine benefitting from a FastFront design that will save space in the home.
Compact and capable of providing fast document and photo prints, the MG2250 has the software required for smart web printing in addition to being able to organise and print photos. This easy and efficient feature can even see Facebook photographs printed.
Whether you’re selecting an individual photo or a selection of images for a collage from the social media site, Canon’s Print My Days app can be used to capture the moments that matter.
A borderless 10 x 15cm photo printing time of 44 seconds is offered as well as ISO speeds of 8.4ipm (mono) and 4.8ipm (colour) will mean there is little waiting time for documents or photographs to be printed.
Energy savings are made possible as a result of the Auto Power Off functionality that will turn the printer off after a period of inactivity. The Auto Power On feature will switch the machine back on once you start printing.
There are also savings to be made on your printing by utilising the XL cartridges that can be accepted by the MG2250 and can help make your printing go further.
In terms of the design of the Canon Pixma MG2250, the model isn’t lacking in buttons.
In fact, it could be argued that Canon has gone slightly overboard with the way in which users can navigate through the printer’s various settings and functions. When you consider the interactive touchscreens offered elsewhere in the market, it seems a little extreme to have the kind of design featured on the MG2250.
Away from the design, the printer operates to a standard that home users will be more than pleased with, especially when you consider this machine sits in the ‘budget’ category when it comes to price.
Users can get plenty of printing for their pounds thanks to XL ink cartridges and a 100-sheet paper capacity that is larger than you’ll find across other machines in the same price bracket.
The MG2250 also possesses an interesting feature for those who prefer to print web pages. The Auto Clip function (part of the Eay-WebPrint EX plugin) will help users easily print only the information they need. Information from a number of web pages can be clipped together onto one printable sheet.
Overall, this is a good basic machine for the home user looking for a cheap all-in-one device.
