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.

Worst Printer I've Had

 

Printer worked GREAT for 1 month....then 2 months came in, it kept not working, I ran troubleshooting and it worked for 1 day afterwards....Then not work again. I essentially had to run trouble shooting for a few months until I had enough.

Great Printer when it works!

Broke 3 months in

Incapable of feeding paper through

 

I was extremely mislead reading the reviews on here and other information about this printer. I bought it because I am a poor college student who can only afford so much, but needs a printer. The reviews here are, for the most part, amazing so I...

Cannon

 

I can use anything that is wireless, phone, tablet, desktop/laptop. I love this feature! It prints nice, pictures look great

The only thing I don't like about it is that I have to put everything in a PDF file. Extra steps that I don't want to take and that seems not needed

Good printer

 

It's good printer, easy to set up. So far so good, its been a good boy and I am very pleased with it. The reason for buying this cuz I hated HP printers since it keeped recalibrating on me and wasting a lot of ink. Also, I needed to print stuff for my...

Good and cheap price Easy to set up Brand new, sealed bag and packages. No damages It's wireless so placing it somewhere was easy. Read some reviews saying it takes a couple minutes to boot. It took a few seconds for me so I had no problem. Maybe some...

Down side of this is that it's bulky and huge. If you don't have room in your room it's best to put it somewhere else closer to your modem (recommended if your using wireless). When I was testing out the printer I had it on my bed, Not gonna lie it's...
