There are times when it is just not worth buying new ink for your aging printer, because more often than not, it sometimes pays to just get a new one when they are marked down, and then sell your old model on, so it’s a win win situation. There are usually just the three top brands to choose from, and these are Canon, Epson and HP, but today we thought you might be interested in the Canon PIXMA MG3550 wireless all-in-one colour inkjet printer.
This model will connect to your wireless network at home, and so any device can connect to it without the need for a cable. However, what’s even better is how you can simply print straight from your mobile device without any of the fuss of installing software.
We are not too sure if the PIXMA MG3550 supports Apple’s AirPrint, but we do know Google Cloud Print is supported; meaning you can print your Google Docs, photos, emails and PDF attachments without being near the printer.
Having said that, you can always choose to download the Canon PIXMA Printing Solutions app so that you can then use any mobile device to print from.
As for those Canon PIXMA MG3550 specs, this printer supports a printing resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 dpi, printing speeds of up to 9.9 imp mono, and 5.7 images per minute colour. This model only supports up to A4 printing, so no A3.
The model also supports double-sided printing, and borderless. Unlike HP, there are just two ink cartridges required, which to us does seem a lot less fuss. We are told that it’s better to have them all separate, as they run out at different times – yet our HP model always informs us that all of the colour inks are empty at the same time.
While there may not be many Canon PIXMA MG3550 reviews out there, we have found that several Tesco Customers have left an owner review on the retailers website.
There are 216 in all so far, and they have given the printer a star rating of 4.3 out of 5 in all. We do find it strange how some of them said how hard it was to set up, while others found it very easy. Others’ were unhappy about how it will not accept Tesco ‘remanufactured’ cartridges, although we have always said it is best to stick to the official cartridges to make sure you always get the best from the printer.
Have a look over some of the reviews, and let us know if this is a printer you would like to own?
