Canon Pixma MG5420 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer

 

The Canon Pixma MG5420 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer is a little sluggish for business apps, but it delivers above par text and photo quality, and prints on optical discs.

Above-par output quality for text and photos. Duplex (two-sided) printing. Prints on optical discs. Wi-Fi

No wired network support. No automatic document feeder. No fax

Similar in many ways to the Canon Pixma MG4220 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-in-One, the Canon Pixma MG5420 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer starts with essentially the same strengths, including better than average text quality for an inkjet...

A mid-range multifunction, the MG5420 punches a bit above its weight class.

Very good inexpensive wireless, it just works.

 

As it came for free with the Samsung 4k monitor that was already lower priced here than at Jeff Bezos' Five and Dime Emporium, sweet baby deity, how could I complain.

Low maintenance, does (via wifi) what a printer should do. Does not jam on cheap Staples copy paper (20 lb). Has lit-up display, so it can be understood in poor light without a flashlight or an oil lamp, which was my main complaint about Canon PIXMAs...

It had trouble getting on the network. Rather bulky, no document feeder

Very attractive easy setup

No matter what you dud could not connect wireressly

Consumer review by:

Beware! Canon doesn't support their printers

 

none

I don't own this model, but you should be careful. Canon thinks that after 5 years, they don't have to support their printers with drivers. You upgrade to a new operating system and your printer turns into a brick ; Keep this in mind when buying Canon...

Love it

 

Excellent photo quality.Easy to set up.Fully wireless

Takes a little long to activate,and sounds a little noisy when printing

Consumer review by:

Happy with the printing.

 

I really do NOT understand why Canon (and HP, and !!!!) use so many DIFFERENT cartridge designs unless it is to force customers to purchase an entire new batch for every printer, thus increasing their profits at our expense. I guarantee they could...

Prints beautifully, it's not as fast as my old HP photo smart but does a good job

Takes almost forever to activate after being left idle for about 15 minutes. Also uses a lot of ink to start back up, goes through a cycle every time it starts. (Cleaning cycle?) The ink cartridge is very new so some places do not carry it and it is...

Terrible Piece of Equipment

 

If you run out of the large black ink cartridge, it is incapable of printing in grey scale even though there is an additional black cartridge. If you use WIFI have fun. It seems to forget the access point every time you turn it off. Also, it is loud as...

3 Canon printers, this one is utter junk

 

This is my third Canon multi-purpose inkjet. The first performed flawlessly for years, went to college with my son, is still functional. The second lasted a couple of years then mysteriously just stopped printing (blank pages). This was bought to...

Incessant paper jams. High ink consumption. Painfully slow

Consumer review by:

Not a Quality Product

 

For several reasons, I was very unsatisfied with this printer. I had it barely over a year, and it stopped working. It remained in my personal home office, used only by me, and the proper care instructions were followed to a tee. It was rarely used...
