Canon Pixma MG4150

RH Numbers

Canon’s black-box all-in-ones all produce excellent prints and even this fairly lowly model offers separate ink cartridges, Wi-Fi and SD, MemoryStick and USB/PictBridge connections. There’s no touchscreen, but a well-designed control panel and the little flip-up LCD display work well together. There’s just a single, 100-sheet paper tray.

Print speeds are generally very good, at up to 8.1ppm, though duplex is hampered by ink drying times. Print quality is very good, with some of the best photos in the group. Page costs of 3.1p and 6.7p are mid-range and overall this is a good, budget machine.

RH Editor's Choice

This is the top of Canon’s range of photo all-in-ones and hence has all the extras. As well as the company’s neat ‘touch lid’ to its scanner, it has a transparency and negative adapter built in and offers direct print to coated CDs and DVDs. Both cassette and rear paper tray are provided, each of which can take 150-sheets.

A maximum speed of 9.7ppm gives it top speed in this group, though duplex print is still slow, at 3.5spm. Photo output is superb, with black and white prints helped by both photo black and grey inks. Page costs, at 3.0p and 8.8p, are high, though not the highest.
