Cons Of Canon PIXMA MG3650S

  • Slow: It's only possible to print 9.9ppm in black and white and 5.7ppm in colour, which isn't very fast but will be more than enough for a standard print volume.
  • Single color ink cartridges: Like the PIXMA TS5350 , it refills with a single color ink cartridge, which can quickly become wasteful if you have to change the whole cartridge when a color is missing.
  • No screen: It probably lacks a screen that would facilitate navigation, as well as the use of the printer
