Entry-level all in one printers continue to drop in price and increase their functionality sets. Canon's new PIXMA MP495 is the same cost as its precursor, the PIXMA MP490, although now incorporating wireless connection as standard.
However, it does leave some things outside the formula, also, possessing no memory card slots or perhaps a PictBridge connector, whereas the MP490 included both. The 'P' in MP495 is supposed to stand for Photo, but it is tough to see how this all in one qualifies, since it is not possible to print pictures straight from a digital camera.
Canon has swung clear of its silver and black colouring and it has rather gone for a high-gloss black overall look, which is smart yet so easy to smudge that you're going to most likely want to keep a cloth convenient.
The paper route is standard enough, with paper feeding via a 100-sheet tray setup at the rear, to a fold-down output tray at the front. The front tray pops open mechanically should you commence printing with it shut. On top of the appliance is a straightforward flatbed scanner, that has a cover which elevates to accommodate books along with single sheets.
The control panel is actually remarkably busy with regard to a low-cost inkjet printer, having a seven-segment LED display used to display the number of copies along with symbols with regard to status conditions. Additionally, there are indicators regarding low ink, paper jams as well as paper type, that is selectable by way of a push-button. Before all these are six buttons so that you can start and stop scan as well as copy jobs, to call up setup features and also to automatically fit a print to the page.
This is actually a twin-cartridge printer, using individual black and tri-colour cartridges. They each click in to place once you have lifted the main scanner area of the PIXMA MP495.
Wireless set up is a little more confused compared to some, since the setup program only makes reference to USB or network connections and only brings up wireless when you are a way down the network path. You need to make use of the wireless setup cable as a short-term connection and also enter your WPA pass code at the Personal computer, though the procedure is after that quite automatic.
Canon is in fact fair minded enough to quote ISO rates of speed, in this instance 8.8ppm with respect to black and 5ppm for colour. Even these much more realistic figures happen to be difficult to match under test, though, since the printer carried out tests as well as preparation spending 15 seconds approximately prior to starting every print. This time would be omitted in the ISO measurements.
Our five-page text document printed at 5.6ppm, however this raised to 6.9ppm for the lengthier, 20-page test. The black text and colour graphics pages required more than two minutes, though, providing a speed of only 2.4ppm. An individual page copy finished in 41 seconds and a 15 x 10cm picture on an A4 glossy photo sheet required 1min 24secs. Both of these speeds are fair regarding a device at this value.
Print quality using the Canon PIXMA MP495 ink cartridges is normally good with clear, well-formed black text together with draft mode text also appearing highly serviceable. Colour graphics are likewise clean as well as vibrant, providing eye-catching and also eye-catching documents.
The picture print was fresh and colours were natural, though, unusually for Canon, a lot of more dark information ended up being lost.
What it really comes down to is whether or not you appreciate wireless connection more than memory card slots and also PictBridge connection for your camera. Should you rarely print photographs then the Canon PIXMA MP495 still offers good value as a low-cost printer, copier and scanner. If you want to print pictures, on the other hand, it is significantly more awkward compared to its direct predecessor.
