With wireless support, touch controls, and even support for cloud services, the Canon PIXMA MG5450 all-in-one inkjet printer really embraces modern technologies. It has a low-profile design that saves some room on a desktop space, and ESAT speeds can reach up to 15 images per minute. Best of all, the cost of Canon MG5450 printer ink is relatively low.
The MG5450 can handle printing, scanning, and copying, but it is some of the smaller features that make it most appealing. Wi-Fi support makes it easy to share without worrying about wires or planting it in a certain location of the house. Support for Apple's AirPrint makes it easy to print from iOS devices with virtually not setup required. A unique feature called Print Your Days can help users easily edit and print photos from Facebook, without having to dig through them on the site. Canon's own specialized apps and Google Cloud Print offer mobile printing from other devices as well.
Automatic duplexing can help control paper costs by printing on both sides of the page, while several quality modes can help users prioritize lower PIXMA MG5450 printer ink usage. Reviewers liked the inclusion of two paper trays, with the main tray in front holding plain paper and the rear tray designed for alternative media types.
The inkjet system uses 5 separate Canon MG5450 ink cartridges: black, cyan, magenta, yellow, and pigment black. While the standard PIXMA MG5450 ink cartridges offer a yield of around 300 pages each, high-capacity versions nearly double the yield. Compatible Canon MG5450 ink is also available from several vendors at lower prices than OEM versions.
The MG5450 offers more features than the average all-in-one inkjet printer, but still has an affordable price tag. With solid speeds, inexpensive supplies, and great photo quality, it is tough to beat in its class of all-in-one machines.
