The Canon Pixma MG3550 is a budget plan all-in-one wi-fi printer. For the price it’s great to see useful attributes such as wi-fi connectivity as well as automatic double-sided printing. Text print rate is respectable for an inkjet, but exactly how does it measure up for quality and running prices? We’ve tested this budget all-in-one printer to find out.
That’s when the printer’s closed up. When you open it up for work, the supposed ‘fast-front’ layout, which may be fast, roughly doubles the room the device takes on the desk. The front cover folds up to end up being the paper feed tray and also the same tray is used for both plain and also photo paper– though not at the same time.
There are times when it is just unworthy acquiring brand-new ink for your aging printer, because more often than not, it in some cases pays to just get a brand-new one when they are marked down, and after that market your old model on, so it’s a win scenario. There are generally simply the 3 top brands to choose from, and also these are Canon, Epson as well as HP.
