Product Reviews

I think that most people who write bad reviews are based on their experience with machines. But they forget that all printers come in several levels, namely home and office. PIXMA MX490 Wireless is pure home printer even though Canon says it’s an office printer. They are ideal for the average home user who needs to copy a receipt, send a fax through a canceled check, or prints something from online and is also ideal for students or ordinary users.

The print quality is good, the speed may be a little faster, but this is a great home printer. Anyone will look for a faster and brighter one. Until now I had no problems with settings, quite a lot of plug and play. Even though I use the programming disk that was included with the unit, I still download the latest drivers from the Canondrivers website.

This printer has done everything I needed from printing, copying, sending faxes, and scanning. WiFi printing and Smartphone apps are very easy to set up and use. The only problem I have with this product. If you want to read the official canon reviews about this product, see here.
