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.

Rock on......

Pretty and solid printer, especially for the discounted price of $50. Not much into photo printing, but the few I have made looked amazing

None yet

Great printer!


Great printer with lot of functionality included

The only concern might be future ink cost, so I would recommend cheap laser printer to go along this one for printing black and white

Good printer for the money, But invest in ink with your purchase.

Works great wired and wireless easy setup starter ink included

Only comes with starter size ink which printed about 30 pages and were empty but better then no ink at all

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

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

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...
