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...

Beware! Canon doesn't support their printers



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...

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...
