Summary: I owned this for a year I believe, and it died on me for whatever reason. It was initially functional and it worked great for what I needed it for, but if you ever get a B200 (maybe B2000 error) you will have to send it in because it is a 'general error'.
Summary: This printer didn't last but about eight months before I got a critical error. Customer service said that error message could indicate one of several things had gone wrong. The only way to know exactly what would be to ship it to the techs and let them take it apart, piece by piece, until they found...
Conclusion: As many seem to have mentioned. We bought this printer in the last few years, have used it very lightly and out of nowhere it will not print black any more. I replaced every cartridge and ran all the various cleaning and diagnostics several times with no luck.
Conclusion: I am extremely disappointed with this printer. It is a little over a year old and it has completely stopped working. I printed something and decided to print another copy and the printer was dead. I tried several things to revive it to no avail.
Conclusion: I was very happy with my previous canon printer which lasted over 10 years. This one however is to be avoided. This is only about one year old and suddenly the magenta will not work despite cleaning, deep cleaning, and cartridge replacements. I'm so disappointed.
Conclusion: Same review as everyone else. I went to print one day and it would not print anymore. Just spits out blank pages. I tried to do all the ink tests and even bought new ink. Still won't work. Not even that old! Lovely!!
Conclusion: This printer MG5300 has been nothing but problems. Within about a 6 month timeframe the wifi feature only worked 1/2 of the time. we've had to unplug the printer replug, bring the computer to the printer etc. to make it work. Today it won't print even with the computer plugged into the printer.
Cons: Slow Print Speed, unreliable, High Ink Consumption
Conclusion: This was my 3rd printer I purchased...all 3 broke within 2 years of when they were purchased...my first 2 stopped printing via Wifi within 12-16 months...my recent one failed to turn on after 13 months not to mention 2 months prior it also stopped printing via Wifi...
