It's not your best option for faithful photo colour reproduction, but if that's not your main requisite, What Digital Camera reckon you'll find lots to like in the Pixma MG6250. It's quick to print and scan, and the Intelligent Touch System is quite useful.

Thanks to the inclusion of a new grey ink cartridge, Canon have given colour accuracy a major boost on their PIXMA MG6250, according to IT Reviews. Scanning resolution is also much improved, and the number of functions on offer is impressive. However, reviewers had their doubts about the hybrid controls and would've preferred a touch-sensitive screen.

The Canon Pixma MG6250 may not be the least expensive printer to operate but its speed can not be delivered by any other inkjet on the consumer market. When it comes to photo printing this Canon is unmatched in quality and sharpness. PC PRO raved that as an all-in-one main stream printer it produces an end product that is sure to have photo pros looking to snatch one up.

"Editor's Choice"

Nicely designed and with good support for mobile devices, MacWorld were impressed by the Canon Pixma MG6250. The print speeds are very good, and quality of photo prints is excellent, though replacing the inks can get confusing with the range of different cartridges available. With high-quality pigmented black, the text document price is high, and colour costs are also not cheap.

"Editor's Choice"

With a high-res scanner, and delivering great-quality photo prints, Canon's Pixma MG6250 is a superb multi-function choice for keen photographers, and CNET say its skills don't stop there.

Photo enthusiasts and home users will find the Canon Pixma MG6250 all-in-one printer very flexible to use, according to Trusted Reviews. It is a little bit faster than the previous model was, plus the prints are more defined. Adding cloud printing facilities in the near future will also keep it in line with the more stylish competitors.
