Conclusion: I purchased the MG5320 to replace another printer I'd had for a long, long time. For about a year, I loved this printer, then suddenly,as many others have complained, prints and copies just came out blank. After following all of the recommended "fixes" and replacing all ink cartridges, still blank pages! This just happened suddenly - printed fine one day and nothing two days later. First and last Cannon.
Summary: I had one of these. Easy to set up. Software works great and isn't buggy. Print quality is great. I loved the way it operated. That is until the print head went out. Canons are great printers-but this one died about a week(yes, a week) after the warranty expired. Just go buy another model-you can't afford to fix a bad print head for less than the cost of a new printer. I bought an MG5522.
Conclusion: I have had many printers and this is the worst one ever. It is totally unreliable. I wanted a wireless printer and got a useless printer .. it only occasionally works and trying to get the wireless connection is a nightmare. Initial problem with print spooler finally seems resolved. Problem now is the computer will not make the wireless connection and the "help" is a laugh .. so complex that it is maddening.
Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, High Ink Consumption, unreliable
Conclusion: The first 12 months using this product was very favorable, although truthfully it was not heavily used. The problems occurred recently -- kept getting no paper prompt (although fully loaded), then went through the print process ending with blank pages. Seems to be no answer, but to buy a different product.
Conclusion: Buyer beware!!! Printer was great until the infamous U052 error message (print head is incorrect) appeared only 18 months after it was purchased. No known fix unless you purchase another print head which is almost as much as a new printer. Now, I am stuck with a printer that is utterly useless.
Conclusion: I've had this printer for a little over 2 years. It was printing fine then all of a sudden the pages started coming out blank. I recently replaced the cartridges and ran all of the diagnostics. The print heads were not "dried out" as some might suggest because it was printing fine earlier in the day.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Conclusion: I have had this printer for just over a year and it just stopped working. Solid orange warning light. Power issue. It was easy to set up and the wireless worked throughout the house but the build quality is less than what I expected from Canon. So how much are you willing to pay for a one year of use printer?
Conclusion: I bought this printer a little over a year ago and it has suddenly stopped working! The issue is with the printhead which cannot be replaced without spending more than what I paid for the printer. It was truly a waste of my money as seldom even used it, I probably printed about 30 times (1-5 pages each time) over the course of a year. Very disappointed!!
