Good Points of the Canon PIXMA MP490 Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer
This practical all in one printer does a great job for small to medium print loads.

Bad Points of the Canon PIXMA MP490
Like most newer printer models, the Canon PIXMA MP490 Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer does not come with a USB cable, so you have to buy one. Canon printer ink is also rather expensive and its best if you practice good printer ink saving techniques. This all in one printer is also a bit on the noisy side and it isn’t as fast as the more expensive models, either.
