Canon Pixma MG5750
Five-ink £85, $80
N-Photo may be dedicated to Nikon cameras, but we’ve always loved Canon’s printers. However, a lot of what we used to love about them has been stripped out of this one. It lacks a secondary tray for photo paper and doesn’t have a rear sheet feeder, so you have to swap plain and photo paper in the main input tray every time you want to switch between document and photo printing. It also lacks a built-in card reader for standalone printing from memory cards and can’t print on CD/DVD discs.
In its favour, the budgetconscious MG5750 has a reasonably large and clear 2.4-inch screen, uses exactly the same ink cartridges as the pricier MG6850, and matches the latter for photo print speeds. It also delivers exactly the same high-level print quality for photo output, as discussed in the MG6850 review.
Pros Fairly fast print speeds; reasonably large, clear screen; good quality output Cons
No secondary input tray for photo paper so you have to swap paper; no card reader We say
Print quality is very pleasing but the pricier Canon MG6850 is better value Overall score
It’s a bit of a bare-bones affair but the 2.4-inch screen is a decent size, even if it’s not a touchscreen
