How do you rate Canon printers?
Every printer Which? tests spends around six weeks being put through its paces in our printer lab tests, but longer-term use can highlight some quirks that aren’t discovered in the early days of a printer’s useful life. This is where customer views come in.
Which? customer views prove a valuable resource – completing the picture of what it’s like to own and work with a printer at home in the long term.

Cressex is having problems with the scanner on the Canon MG8150:
I bought my Canon Pixma MG8150 about ten months ago and it has proved to be an excellent printer, copier and scanner, when the scanner works that is. The problem with the scanner is that on scanning multi-page documents it will intermittently stop operating for example it might stop on page 5 of a 10 page document… The document then has to be re-scanned and the chances are that it will fail again. The retailer, Amazon, was most helpful though and they are going to give me a replacement printer free of charge and then take the old one back, their service was excellent so far.

The Wanderer is pleased with the Canon MG5250:
I have had this printer for about 6 months and cannot fault it. Much quieter than previous printers I have had but produces very good quality print, and also scans and copies very well. Nice looking machine and remarkably cheap for the quality.

However, another user is less impressed with the build quality:
I bought this product to replace another Canon and have been quite disappointed with it. It was easy to set up and use but the whole thing is flimsy especially the paper tray. I often want to copy only a part of a page and on my old machine I could edit out the unwanted parts but this function has been sacrificed to print CD labels.

Another Canon owner has generally been happy with the Canon MG6150:
My experience so far has been very positive. The set up was quite straight forward and the quality of prints is excellent. It deals with a variety of media. The only real problem I had was a break in wi-fi transmission during a high quality piece of printing. This happened twice and was very annoying… Has been OK since then. Would recommend this printer and an excellent all rounder.

But Eddie hasn’t been as impressed with the running costs of the printer:
Wish I had read these reviews before buying this printer as I am also experiencing huge ink usage! My last set of cartridges lasted less than three months and I was able to print a measly 69 pages of mostly black copies. What they don’t tell you is that this machine has an automatic nozzle cleaning function that uses a little of all the inks every time you switch on!
