Canon MG5450 - Overview

By: Printerthinker - 06 July 2013

The Canon MG5450 is a printer, scanner and copier - or multifunction machine. It boasts a number of features including duplex printing (double sided), printing on to a DVD or CD and high quality photo printing.

The Canon MG5450 comes equipped with Apple AirPrint, meaning you can print directly to it with your Apple device. The printer itself is quite large, and has a very shiny finish to it making it quite difficult to keep clean.

Changing the cartridges can be a little bit difficult as the space to change the cartridges is quite small. The printer takes five cartridges, PGI-550PGBK (Pigment Black), CLI-551BK (Black), CLI-551C (Cyan), CLI-551M (Magenta), CLI-551Y (Yellow), making it an economical machine. The printer does have the ability to take the equivalent XL version cartridges.

Print speed is relativey swift, fifteen mono pages per minute, and ten colour per minute. The Canon MG5450 will also print a 10x15cm photo in a little over twenty seconds.
