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...

Love it


Excellent photo quality.Easy to set up.Fully wireless

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

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...

Nice printer, good features.


I got a very good deal at Best Buy, this printer was on sale for $59.99 and even though I wanted to get a white one, I decided to seize the opportunity and get this one since it was so cheap and had an excellent resolution. The only problem so far is...

Resolution, look and size

Too slow to print anything, installation a little tricky

Great Printer for my Business


This printer is one of my favorites now. I purchased it for my business and it has exceeded my expectations. I learn something new that I can do on it everyday! The fact that it supports AirPrint to print from my phone and iPad is a plus!

Super easy to set up and comes with ink. I started printing my business cards and postcards the day I got it

So far I have found nothing to dislike about this printer, it does everything I need in multiple size paper choices

Really nice printer for price


Works great and got on sale for less than the cost of replacing ink on My old printer. The AirPrint works nice. Nice to have an LCD screen too.

Prints good pics and love the wireless feature

No problems at all so far
