With an extremely simple design and a compact frame, the Canon BJC-250 inkjet printer is right at home in small spaces, but it is not without limitations. Prints speeds max out at 4 pages per minute in black and 0.5 pages per minute in color, and its limited resolution results in below-average print quality. Its low price is appealing, but Canon BJC-250 printer ink costs may eat up the savings for those who print a lot.
The main paper tray of the BJC-250 holds up to 100 sheets, and is vertical, which makes the paper path straighter, decreasing the likelihood of paper jams. It can accept an impressive variety of media, such as coated paper, transparencies, envelopes, high-gloss film, and more. Such a focus on creative projects and versatility is let down by its limited resolution of only 360x360 dpi for color output, however, which results in lower-quality prints than those of many competing models.
A compact design is appealing to buyers with space limitations, and the unit's dimensions are only 6.8x14.2x8.5 inches. As it weighs only 5.5 pounds, even with Canon BJC-250 printer ink installed, it can easily be moved out of the way when printing is finished. With only a parallel port, connection options are very limited.
Many compact inkjet models are expensive to operate, and this is no exception, and Canon BJC-250 ink cartridges also have fairly small yields, increasing the cost per page. The tricolor Canon BJC-250 ink cartridge supplies up to 200 pages at maximum, with the black supply offering up to 450 pages before expiring.
The Canon BJC-250 has a few nice elements, like its straight paper path, compact design, and versatile paper handling, but it is not enough to overcome its limitations. Its slow speed and poor output quality make it difficult to recommend.
