It is really rare to find an inkjet printer for under £50, but this PIXMA MG3550 does. Intended for the home or student customer, it offers basic print, scan and copy, but also include wireless support and direct print from several mobile device platforms. Like other Canon products, it has a neat boxes with rounded vertical edges and surprisingly small footprints.
When you open this device up for work, it roughly doubles the space the machine takes on the desk. The tray in front of this device is used as both paper tray and photo tray, but not to use in the same time.
The minimalis controls are set on the top panel of the PIXMA MG3550. There are LEDs to indicate power, wireless connection, and ink and paper status. For copy counter, it has no LED. There is a button sequence too that you can use to establish a wireless connection through WPS setup, though.
About ink, PIXMA MG3550 has single cartridge with cyan, magenta and yellow inks that can be wasteful, if you print images with a surfeit of particular primaries.
