MP640, MG6150, MG5250, MG5150, Premium , PX710W

I want a new printer.

  • Besides printing in photo quality it should also be able to Scan and Copy in color,
  • It should be able to communicate wireless over 802.11n wifi,
  • It should not be too large in size
  • It should have a low energy usage in stand-by mode

So I made a pre-selection based on the top models of premium brands and put them in an overview with the features I find the most important. The Canon Pixma MG series will be available in the Netherlands from September onwards so I decided to include the range.

Based on the above overview I decided to wait 1 month for the Canon Pixma MG5250. It has all the connectivity I need, has great print quality, comes in a reasonable size and appears to come with a decent price. Currently only the Recommended Retail Price is available.

  1. Heb je inmiddels al hands-on ervaring met deze printer? Ben heel benieuwd of hij kan scannen en de resultaten in pdf wireless in een mapje op je desk/laptop kan plaatsen.

  2. Ero deciso ad acquistare la MP640, ma ho visto le nuove MG e ciò mi ha creato confusione. Probabilmente la diretta concorrente della MP640 sarà la MG6150, ma il prezzo è veramente molto alto anche se devo stampare fotografie e se la MG6150 ha l’inchiostro grigio che per le foto, soprattutto in bianco in nero, è molto importante. Sono veramente molto incerto, ma penso che prenderò la MG5250 che è un nuovo modello ed ha buone caratteristiche ad un prezzo possibile.
