A Photo Lab Quality Multifunction Inkjet - The Canon Pixma MP450
This printer has many features that make it ideal for photographic printing. There is the PictBridge support with memory slots to accommodate five different cards. In addition, the model has a 4.7cm colour display screen and an infrared port which will support printing from mobile devices which are compatible. The model is simple to install and will allow use of high capacity Canon MP450 ink cartridges which make reduced running costs. Unfortunately, even when using the high yield Canon MP450 ink cartridges figures are still not good and the model only runs for 300 pages in mono and 275 pages in colour before you need to replace the inks.
Costs For Canon MP450 Printer Cartridges
Using Canon MP450 printer inks, pages cost 8.5 pence for colour and 6.7 pence for black and white and these figures are very poor. You do get high quality text and decent photos. However, the best feature of this model is the scanner which produces very impressive results. The MP450 is very capable but the running costs may be too high for many people. Figures can be reduced by using Canon MP450 compatible inks in place of genuine OEM inks.
