Canon MP285 AIO (print-copy-scan) review
Canon has some great quality printers and this is one of them. The canon MP 258 is a compact all in one (AIO) that can print,copy and scan,looks great and costs just Rs2700! Yes, you get a color printer and a scanner for that less!
Since the printer is an ink jet printer, it is not advisable to use it for bulk printing, but we did a rough test of how many prints you can get with the cartridges you get with the printer. As usual, it was the black ink that got over really quickly - in about 100 prints. The color cartridge is still 80%+ with some 20 odd color prints being taken. So you can now get an idea of the "mileage" you get with this printer.
Extra cartridges cost around Rs800 for B&W and Rs1100 for Color in our local store, but I think those were the "jumbo" variant which should last much longer. If you don't want to spend so much, you can always get the Ink refilled. Refilling costs just Rs40 for B&W and Rs120 for color, but there is always the risk of the cartridges leaking,so keep that in mind.
