5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Printer very pleased, 22 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG8250 All-in-One Colour Printer (Print, Copy, Scan, Wi-Fi and Auto Duplex) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
I bought this printer to replace my ageing Epson all in one. I was impressed at how easy the wireless access was to set up. I simply pressed one button on the printer and one button on my wireless router and that was it! I found the rest of the setup easy too - including the firmware update (the CD-ROM setup leads you to it). As others have said, I can't believe other reviewers have marked it down because of this: a) this is standard procedure now for all high-end kit if you want to take advantage of the latest developments and features (I have just updated the firmware on my Smart TV and my son's Nintendo 3DS for example - normal) and b) I simply used the cable that used to physically connect the old printer, as also suggested.

Print quality seems excellent so far and photos (primary reason for buying) are coming out great. For 200 quid I have no negative points at all for this printer - even the build quality seems fine to me compared to my old one. One thing to note though for placement is that it does have a fairly large footprint as you need access to trays at the front and the back, needs to go on a desk or a deep shelf.

Ink is, of course, pricey, but I am planning to go down the self-refillable route myself this time - plenty of forum info out there telling you how to do this - wish me luck!
