Questions & Answers for Canon Canon PIXMA MP250 Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer/Copier/Scanner

Question

Is this product compatible w/my Gateway Computer w/Vista operating system; and is this a printer also?

My HP Laser Jet Printer Ink Cartridge is out and to buy a new one I'd have to come up w/about $129 for the cartridge. I can't seem to find an economical solution anywhere other than to just buy a new printer. I like the price of this printer, but it sounds like it's more of a picture/scanner type thing than a printer. Is it truly an all-in-one? For $32? Compatible with a Gateway Laptop?

This printer should be compatible with any current computer. I'm using mine on a network with a desktop, running Windows XP and a laptop, running Windows 7 and I'm having no problems at all. So far, I have scanned and printed color photos and black and white documents. The quality of the prints have been excellent in both cases. If your cartridges cost $129, you could purchase 4 of these printers for that. I have only had my MP-250 for about a month but I sure am pleased with it so far.

Question

Copy Speed

What is the approximate copy speed for this printer? (Not printer speed.) I make copies often for work and want to know if it's fairly fast or slow. How many copies per minute? Thanks!

The first black-on-white copy takes 20 seconds from the time you press the Print Black button until the copy is in the exit hopper. Color takes longer. Add the time it takes you to load and unload the original. If you work at it, you should be able to get 1 copy each of 2 originals per minute. Multiple copies of 1 original are produced at the same rate as printed pages. This machine is slow, but no slower than any other All-in-One where you must load originals one-by-one by lifting a lid and positioning originals by hand. If you need speed, you need to get a machine that automatically feeds originals from a hopper, and that is in a very different price range.

Scanning take the time, not the copying! If you're only copying one page and you're in a hurry, use another. If you're scanning one page to make 100 copies, use it. Obviously, if you set a doc at 1200 dpi, it'll take longer to scan than 300 dpi.

It all depends on the settings of the machine. I had it on the "Fastest" print setting and was getting about 14-15 pages per minute that was complete text. Not sure on how it would do with details on photos though

I REALLY DON'T ADVISE BUYING REFILL KITS.SEE IF CAN BE REFILLED BY YOUR LOCAL ELECTRONICS SHOP.THAT WAY THERE PROFESSIONALY CLEANED,FILLED,AND TESTED BEFORE YOU GET THEM BACK.OVER THE COUNTER REFILL KITS IS A GREAT BIG HASSLE AND ON TOP OF THAT YOUR JETS IN THE CARTRIDGE ARE NOT CLEANED AND THEN YOU GET POOR PRINTING AND THEN YOU HAVE TO BUY NEW CARTRIDGES.

It uses Canon 211 cartridges for color. The CL 211 XL model I recommend is 2975B001. The other color cartridge (less ink) CL211 is 2976B001.
