Canon Pixma MX455 review - Cheap and well-equipped


The Canon Pixma MX455 is no looker, but for the low price it’s remarkably well-equipped

If the MG6350 is big, the Pixma MX455 is even bigger, adding more than 5cm to the height of Canon’s high-end device. It’s also a clumsy beast in many ways. The 100-sheet input tray is just the open front door. The output tray sits above, but it’s not long enough to catch pages as they emerge – for that you pull out the stopper on the input tray, which takes the total depth to nearly 65cm. It’s hardly an elegant solution, and it’s even more awkward when you start poking photo paper deep inside.


But this isn’t a premium device. At £79 it’s far cheaper than anything else here, yet Canon still manages to pack in a 30-sheet ADF on top of its chunky lid, and a Wi-Fi connection with AirPrint support. With no touchscreen – there’s just a two-line LCD – we had to type oursecurity key out letter by letter using the number-pad, but that’s only a one-off annoyance.

Once up and running the MX455 is a perfectly good printer for the money. Its two ink tanks mean it won’t match the best here for print quality, but text was sharp and areas of colour were nice and solid, and only a grainy finish to photos noticeably betrayed the low budget. For all but the most public work, we’d be pretty happy with its output.

As with the MG6350, the MX455 insisted on regular pauses to let the ink dry, but we managed to eke out speeds of 5.7ppm for mono pages and 2.9ppm for colour. Again, in Windows we lowered the drying time, but the downloaded OS X 10.8 driver wouldn’t let us use the option. There’s no auto-duplex mode, and it’s slow when printing photos, taking 2mins 26secs for a 6 x 4in print at best quality and over four minutes for an A4 photo.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
