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...

Just what I needed

 

Cheap ink works just fine 4/5 times, but it has 5 tanks >.> If you just need to print a few things from time to time this is a good choice, may want to look at something bigger if you need volume.

Simple to set up, ink is cheap/lasts a long time (at least for the price)

Wireless only. Not a problem for me, but thought I'd mention it.

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...

none

only worked 5 times before it broke, printer is incapable of not jamming paper, printer cannot find paper

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.
