People looking for an affordable printer for their home may be interested in the MG3150 model from ink cartridges maker Canon.

The device is stated by the manufacturer to be ideal for first-time users, families and students and should be capable of meeting any everyday printing, copying and scanning needs.

It offers a compact footprint with a front-loading design to ensure it takes up as little space on a desk as possible, while other features include Wi-Fi connectivity, automatic duplexing and software such as Easy-PhotoPrint EX to make editing snaps a simple task.

Examining the printer for CNet UK, reviewer Niall Magennis noted the model is a "fairly attractive looking machine" that is straightforward to set up.

He added that "the quality of the MG3150's output is universally impressive" and observed the running costs are also quite low, which makes it a good choice for users on a budget.

Recently, another Canon model, the Pixma MG6220, was praised by Jon Jacobi of PC Advisor for its stylish design and fast printing speeds.
