The high running costs and modest performance of the Pixma MX492 keep it at the bottom of our score sheet, as you can see in the table above. In the following section, we detail how the Canon Pixma MX492 performed in our tests.

The Canon Pixma MX492 scores an average of 5 out of 10 on the Text Quality Test. The resulting text is quite wide, but the edges tend to be uneven and also less sharp. The Canon Pixma MX492 appears to be using too much ink [a finding supported by our cost-to-operate results]. Unlike another inexpensive inkjet printer we tested, the Epson Expression, prints a 6 at this scale and also produces clearer text.
