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.
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 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!!
Conclusion: This printer does not have print with black ink only option. So if you run out of a color ink cartridge you have no option. also the color ink is used when printing black. the ink runs out very quickly make it very expensive. Printer is slow at best. Considering the cost of tis printer and its performance very disappointed. The WORST printer I ever had will never buy a cannon product again.
Conclusion: Worked great when it was working. But after a little over a year the printer head went out. Now I have to trash it, due the printer head is so costly. Do not buy this product. I have seen many others owners with the same problem on the internet. We try to find a solution, and follow all the instructions to fix the print head and it's a waste of time. I am very disappointed in this product.
Conclusion: I loved this printer. The photo quality was awesome, easy installation, and I pretty much had a man crush on it, until the cartridge feed stuck and it kept telling me to contact support. I had this in a box for over a year until my original printer went down. I then programmed this one, and it was amazing. Now it's useless and I'm back to researching printers.
