​Canon PIXMA MX495 Review

Posted by Mark Adam on

Currently selling for £46.95 (as of July 2015)

Printer manufacturers don’t actually make money from selling basic inkjet printers, they make plenty on the sale of ink just not on the printer, its often suggested they might actually lose money! So the PIXMA MX495 is yet another MFP (Multifunction Printer) with the ability to print, scan, copy and even send a fax (A fax was a popular way to send a message back in the 80’s) if you still do use faxes you’ll need to connect your printer to a BT line but personally I’d recommend using one of the many online email to fax services which are available. The MX495 comes with a 20 Sheet ADF (Automatic Document Feeder).

Canon’s new printer is cheap but it’s also very ugly! For a cheap printer you can’t expect too much and this is reflected in the build quality but for less than £47 you can’t complain. The MX495 Has all of the usual connection options with a USB port to the rear and WiFi connectivity however there no RJ45 Network connection which are available on more expensive models.

This printer is idea for basic home use with mono print speeds of 8.8 pages per minute and colour documents at 4.4 pages per minute, when testing the printer for ourselves we found colour documents which included photos printed much slower and the print seemed to pause during the process. On the plus side the quality of the printed documents and photos was excellent with sharp, black, crisp text and bright colour photos which were better than many other printers in the same class which we’ve tested.

The PIMXA MX495 Uses the PG-545 and CL-546 range of printer ink cartridges, these are available in both standard and XL Versions.

Dinky Cartridges give this printer a rating of 6 out of 10
