I bought this printer on November 22 2009 at walmart and let me just tell you, it was the best steal possible only at a surprising $40 and i berlieve it still is. It works great and is totally worth the value, not cheap at all. It prints very sharp and clear photos as well as document prints. The scanner and copier is perfect and handy when needed. I love it because in the box a came fully loaded with color and black ink, photo paper and usb cord. the print speed is accurate, at least about 4-7 seconds per page. and it doesnt consume ink as much!!!!
I got this as a replacement for my epson printer.
The ink was out and found both inks would cost 4 bucks more than this combo unit. The canon does a nice job on text and good on color printing. The
scanner works well on copying homework and such.
This is great bang for the buck.
I ordered this all in one printer/scanner/copier to solve our daily printing/copying activities. I think the product is amazing for the price. I couldn get a similar piece anywhere for the price. It shipped to home in 97 cents. Very easy to setup. Clear instructions. The printer takes a while to start and makes little noise. But that can be ignored. The prints are awesome and clear. the copying almost happens instantly. I have not used the scanner yet. The product is worth every penny.I would recommend it.
I was happy with my Canon iP2600, but I wanted an all-in-one printer with a flatbed scanner. After seeing the price of this, it was a no brainer! I already was familiar with the sleek look of the Canon printers, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got it all set out on my desk.
I like the matte color. It looks professional, and won't show fingerprints and dust (like my iP2600 did). It has a flip out tray for papers to come out on as they print, and when not in use it looks like part of the printer.
The thing I was especially happy with was the place where you put the blank paper. My last printer had a flip up tray that stood up vertical when holding paper, and folded down on top of the printer when not in use. Although handy, I didn't particularly like how it looked, a bit temporary looking. This one has a tray that slides down into the printer when not in use, completely out of sight. I actually had to look around a bit to find it the first time!
Setting it up was a breeze. I was in a rush to leave the house. I had procrastinated setting up the printer until last minute, but really needed to print something to take with me (my other printer was low on ink too!) The instructions said installing the drivers and all would take up to 30 minutes (and I had to leave in 15, eek!) - but from first taking it out of the box to printing my first sheet took about 10 minutes. And a majority of that time was peeling off all the packing tape! I'm glad my printer was protected in the box, but sheesh! I could have taped down my belongings in preparation for a tornado with the amount of tape that came on that thing!
I have an Airport Express that I use with my printers, so I can print from anywhere in my home over the wifi. On my other printers it took awhile to get it to work with this. With the MP250 it was instantly recognized and I have had no compatibility problems with it!
On a side note, on installation I only installed the printer drivers and not any of the other software. To me it is unnecessary, since I have other programs that do this already on my computer.
Overall, I'm super satisfied. Just make sure you plan your time accordingly for tape removal!
I just bought this printer a few days ago and wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing or not since I had never own a cannon product and reading the mixed reviews. I was very smart to have bought it! This printer is awesome! It prints with such high quality that the copies I print are brighter and clearer then originals, the pictures come out looking like I had just had them printed at a photo shop, and scanning is so quick and easy that anyone can do it. The set up was a little confusing with the top line showing what to do if you had Windows and right below it what to do if you have a Mac. Other then that, it was so easy. I read comments saying that the printer was loud, but I have performed all the tasks and believe me, this machine is way quieter then the other two I own. Others say that it also uses a lot of ink, but to my amazement I am still showing both cartridges as full after printing a few word documents and 4 picutres. I truly believe that you will be very happy with this product and you totally can't beat the price for it. Do yourself a favor and before going out and purchasing a more expensive all in one printer to do standard projects at home, invest in this machine.
I bought this printer and one month latter didn't want to pull sheets. I read that these printers had this kind of problems and this people said very bad comments.
I FOUND THAT SMALL AMAOUNTS OF DUST IN ROLLERS THAT PULL THE SHEETS CAUSED SHEETS SLIP (OR SLIDE) SO ROLLERS NEVER WERE ABLE TO PULL THE SHEETS. After rollers were cleaned up with common alcohol printer worked perfectly. I hope this is useful for somebody else. I almost emptied the cartridges runing tests in the printer in order to find the problem.
this has it all and what a steel!!!!! $40.00 comes with ink, usb cable and a few sheets of picture paper and prints beautifully!!! if you need an all in one.. print,copy,scan get this you will not regret it!!!
I've had this printer for over a year. I paid more than what it is now, but was worth the money. The cartridges are some of the more affordable ones, and easy to change. Many print options to chose from. Picture card friendly. No troubles.
I was shocked to see this printer for forty USD. bestbuy has a similar printer for seventy USD. Value for the price is phenominal IMO. enough of that.... the very first print took about 60-90 seconds to start printing. after that, it seem to take the paper just as quick as i would expect. It didnt need any adjustments right out of the box. the color was crisp and accurate. When I used the copy function, i was pleased to find i didnt need it hooked up to my netbook to make a copy. the copy was fast enough for our uses. Very happy with my purchase!!
I was hesitant at first to buy this printer because I had read in other reviews where people complained about it running through ink too quick.
When I walked into WalMart I was on a tight budget but still needed something that I could use to get a novel printed quickly since my deadline is looming, and after pacing the aisles I wound up picking this printer up. I have to say, I'm glad I didn't let my skepticism get the best of me.
I took it home and plugged it in and within 5 minutes I was printing my book. Amazing printer for the price - and if you want to conserve ink simply set it to print in Greyscale under the printer options, that way it doesn't use the color cartridge.
Overall it's an awesome printer for an amazing price (came to $43.00 with tax), beats all the other printers I have owned hands down. If you need a good printer at a great price, you can't go wrong with this one.
This printer is awesome, it prints terrific, the scanner is great, it's a fast copier, overall great value for the price, easy to set up and install,
This item works great. The only problem I had was it runs out of ink to fast. I use it for home use and I don't use it for pictures. I even purchased the ink cartridges that are 210XL and 211XL that have more ink in them and I still run out of ink in no time at all. I'm going to buy a HP printer and dump this one. It was cheap to buy but cost too much to use it.
AT FIRST I DID NOT KNOW IF THIS WAS GOING
TO BE A GOOD PURCHASE, IT SOUNDED TOO
GOOD TO BE TRUE BUT FOR SUCH A LOW
PRICE I HAD TO GET IT. i really like it and the
QualIty of pictures is amazing and prints
REALLY QUICKLY! IT DOESNT MAKE TOO MUCH
NOISE BUT THE ONLY THING IS IT IS A LITTLE
TOO BIG. scanner and copy works excellent!
1. The price for the printer & accessories is cheap but the cost to replace the ink is high!!! I just found out from technical support that everytime I turn my printer off (to conserve energy) the printer heads clean themselves & use ink to do this. I don't use the color ink but I print often in black (grayscale). Well, my color ink disappears anyway b/c the inkheads automatically clean themselves after so many prints & everytime the printer is turned on. I wish I knew this b4 purchasing this printer. BE AWARE b/c you will spend a lot replacing ink cartridges.
2. The printer makes a lot of noise when you turn it on/off and after each print session.
3. Universal refills aren't available for the ink yet.
4. This would be a good investment only if you don't print often.
5. Also, you must have both cartridges in to print.
While this printer does produce an excellent quality picture and documents, it went through ink very fast. I was continually replacing ink cartridges. In the end, this product would be good for someone who used their printer very rarely.
This All-In-One is perfect. I bought it not expecting it to do much. It exceeded the project I was working on and is still completing tasks for me. I have recommended this product to a co-worker and she loves it just the same. I am getting one for my boyfriend for Christmas. Great Product.
I received this as a gift and I have only used it a few time so far but I love it. It was easy to set up and looks nice. It does everything that I would need it for. I would recommend for a starter printer.
Excellent printer. The performance is all I hoped for. THe online purchase process was quick and efficient. Can't beat the quality and ease of setting it up. It took about 10 minutes to be operational.
First I bought the HP F4440, then the HP F2480. BOTH say "Windows 7 ready" on the box. I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. With BOTH printers, when printing, the dialog box would come up and say either "Connecting with printer" or "Communicating with printer" and that would stay there for 15 minutes or longer before I could change the print settings and finally print. I spent two hours on the phone with HP tech support who ended having me use the generic driver for a different HP printer, losing some of the functionality at the same time. In the end, I returned both HP printers and bought this Canon MP250 for $40 and guess what? EVERYTHING works with the Canon with ZERO issues or problems! I highly recommend the Canon MP250! Stay away from those two HP printers if you have Windows 7! Buy this Canon MP250!
Man it was so easy to setup!! And I don't have alot exprience in using a computer. I recommend to everybody for real everything comes ready and you don't have to buy anything but paper. I love this product!!
