The Canon Pixma MG2150 is the entry level model from the new wave of Canon multifunction printers. It prints, scans and copies and has been designed for individual users looking for a machine to print text and photos. Canon has set its store by the compact elegance of this model. It’ll certainly appeal to lovers of glossy black who don’t mind the finger marks on the hood. At 44.9 x 30.4 x 15.2 cm for 5 kg, it’s certainly compact. This model has been designed for those looking to put their printer on a shelf. You feed the paper in at the front as well as accessing the cartridges from there thanks to the FastFront system. This is of course an entry level printer and therefore has limited hardware. There’s no wi-fi, no Ethernet, no duplex, no fax and no card reader. Nor is there a touchscreen control panel or screen When the ink runs out, it is nevertheless possible to force it to print by pressing the 'Stop/Restart' button for a few seconds. This is only a fallback solution however as it alters the print quality. As expected, the print speeds don’t beat any records. They are however comparable to those on other entry level models. 8 pages per minute (ppm) colour and 6 ppm black & white, compares to the Epson Stylus SX420W with 4 ppm colour and 8 ppm black & white. With Canon drying times are always longer.
Canon's MG2150 is the entry-level model in the company's line-up of multi-function printers. It costs just £42, but on the downside it uses a combined colour ink cartridge and lacks the Wi-Fi and duplex support of the MG3150 -- the next model up in the range. So is the MG2150 still worthy of consideration if you're looking for a budget inkjet model? Like all the printers in Canon's MG line-up, this one has a low profile design and stands just 152mm tall. However, it's fairly wide at 449mm, so it'll still take up quite a lot of room on a home office desk or shelf. The styling is attractive enough, thanks to its rounded corners. The matte black finish looks business-like and doesn't show up finger smudges like the glossy styling of some models. This printer only has a single flip-down paper tray at the bottom that holds 100 sheets. Unsurprisingly at this price, it doesn't have a dedicated photo paper area so you'll have to remove your A4 sheets every time you want to print a snap. Printed results are fed into another flip-out tray just above the input tray. Both of these are made from plastic and feel fairly flimsy. As with the MG3150, this model doesn't have a proper screen.
