There are so many printers on the market nowadays that it can be hard to figure out which to buy for your home. You don’t need constant, industrial-powered printing, but at the same time you want it to be smart enough to scan, copy and connect to your phone, if needs be.
That’s the sweet spot that the Canon PIXMA MG6851 printer occupies. It’s an all-in-one inkjet printer, copier and scanner, which makes it a multi-tasker. But let’s be honest, it’s that kind of all-in-one convenience that most of us expect from a printer nowadays.
It’s ideal for printing everything you might want to from home, from last minute tickets and gig passes that you can quickly print off in black and white through to creative projects and photographs that have a really high output quality of 4800 x 1200 dpi.
The PIXMA MG6851 hooks up to your home Wi-Fi network, which means you can print from your computer, like you usually do, or from a tablet or smartphone. And while we’re talking smartphones, the Canon print app is worthy of a mention. Many people we chat to say they find cloud printing apps a bit tricky to use and either end up printing the wrong thing or not even getting anything to print at all-not ideal. Fortunately, the Canon print app is one of the best around, making the whole process easy as soon as you hit print thanks to wireless connectivity.
If you don’t want to use an app or your computer, you can use the printer’s SD card slot instead.
So, if you’re after a trusted printer that sees to all your home needs, then go for the Canon PIXMA MG6851. Especially with Christmas around the corner, who knows how much cash you can save printing off your cards and decorations instead of buying them and printing off your New Year’s Eve photos come January.
