Canon PIXMA MP495 User Reviews

Canon Pixma MP497, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Once the printer drivers are installed on your Mac and it’s connected to the same WiFi network as the printer, just go to System Preferences / Print & Fax / + (add printer) and wait a few seconds. You will see a “Canon MP560 Series Bonjour Scanner” and a “Canon MP560 Series_NNNNNN0000000 canonijnetworkr” printer listed, you can add them and you are ready to print and scan! When adding, you can edit the name to make it look a little bit nicer. If you prefer, you can connect the printer via an USB cable and the printer will be automatically installed.” – by Jek Suen Lee

Competent all-in-one worth a look, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The MP495 is a very competent document printer with all the features you’d find in any inkjet printer. Paper loads from the back, so it’s a bit more intuitive which side of the paper will be printed on, but it also means you need more space heightwise. As a photo printer, the MP495 is both fast and high quality. I found that the supplied ‘Photo Paper Plus Glossy II’ sample paper outperformed some HP photo paper I had. And the MP495 outperformed another HP photosmart 385 printer I have in both speed and quality.” – by Eric S. Olstad

A reasonable inkjet for the money, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This printer prints quickly, without too much noise and fuss, and the color print quality is high. The scan and copy qualities are excellent: much better than my old inkjet scanner. There is a useful “copy” button which does the copy in B/W, and another one for color copies. This is a very useful feature.” – by Scott C. Locklin
