Canon Pixma MX725 Printer Review

The Canon Pixma MX-725 inkjet printer was launched over a year ago, but there are still units available from various on-line retailers.   When first introduced into the UK market they sold for between £130 and £180.  Today you can pick one up for around £110.  
The advantage to buying an older model printer is that plenty of consumers have already tested the product and offered their feedback.  For a mainstream product like the MX725, there are plenty of reviews from numerous sources.  We will take a look at these to gauge whether this is a good product to buy.

Good points
* Easy to set up WiFi.
* Print from mobile phones and tablets using the built-in application.
* Excellent printing quality, partly due to the Canon self cleaning routine.
* Reasonably compact for the type of machine.
* Excellent duplex printing.
* Good 600dpi scanning facility with good software. 
* Stylish curvy design.
* Large 250 sheet paper tray.
* Very good price now that is has been reduced.
* Good build quality
* Cheap compatible ink cartridges and refillable cartridges available.

Bad points
* Printer regularly performs a self-cleaning routine before the first print. 
* Shiny black plastic case attracts dust and can scratch easily.
* No vertical rear paper feed.
* A tiny bit noisy.
* Original Canon ink cartridges are expensive.

The Canon Pixma MX725 inkjet printer scores between 4.3 to 4.4 out of 5.  This is a good score for an inkjet printer.  The MX-725 offers good print quality, many useful features, and is cheap to run.  Both cheap replacement ink cartridges and refillable empty cartridges with ARC are available at a cheap price.  The only significant bad thing can be the slowness of  printing the first sheet.  Many Canon printers perform an automatic self-cleaning routine.
