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.

i write all reviews comparing thing to how much i spend and realizing that if you spend 70$ on a printer than i expect to get my 70$ and this exceeds what i felt like i paid for it the reason i gave it 5 EGGS

The printer was 70$ when i purchased it. the print speed to price ratio is good and what i was looking for cause i do a lot of reports. The WIFI ; is easy to set up and has decent range

little bit of noise when you don't have it on noise reduction setting

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

Consumer review by:

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
