Hey, where’s that paperless society we were promised years ago? Not quite here yet — sometimes we still need to print recipes, boarding passes, shipping labels and so on.

For basics like those, a basic printer will do just fine. And if that printer just happens to be a copier and scanner as well? Works for me!

Enter the Canon Pixma MG2522 all-in-one, currently on sale at Walmart for just $29. You’d be hard-pressed to buy a single ink cartridge for $29, let alone an entire printer.

The first thing you need to know: This is a wired model, meaning it needs to plug into your PC’s USB port. If you want something wireless, something that can be shared on your home Wi-Fi network with multiple devices, keep looking.

The Pixma MG2522 was designed for small jobs, with a mere 60-sheet input tray and print speeds that are on the slow side. It relies on two ink cartridges: one black, one quad-color. Because consumables are always a key consideration with any printer purchase, I checked: You can buy a set of third-party cartridges for as low as $27, less than half what you’d pay for Canon-branded ink.

The printer also has basic scan and copy capabilities, the big limitation being the one-sheet-at-a-time flatbed. If you need a machine with a multi-page document feeder, keep looking.

Although the user reviews here aren’t exactly glowing — 3.8 stars (out of 5) from over 3,400 buyers — a low price makes it easy to overlook certain gripes, like the lack of Wi-Fi. Heck, for some folks the scanner alone would be worth $29.

What do you think? Good buy at this price, or does it make sense to spend more and get more?
