8. Canon PIXMA MG8250

The PIXMA MG8250 is a fantastic little home printer, packed full of useful little features. Dropping your cash on this pretty machine gets you a transparency scanner, direct printing from CD or DVD, as well as from the PIXMAs cloud link. The print quality is also excellent, and is particularly noticeable on photographs.

It’s compact frame and print quality comes at a price: the ink cartridges are not the biggest and compulsive printers will find themselves buying new toner more often than they would like.
