Quite possible the worst printer I have ever owned
10 February 2015
Summary: Quite possible the worst printer I have ever owned. It is slow as sin - sometimes taking up to 5 mins just to print out a PDF, and have experienced 30 + mins to print out a high res image. And to top it all off, one day it simply just conked out and stopped working. Not even 2 years old.
Failed after just 2 years - usual print head problem. No more Canons for us

Summary: Failed after just 2 years with the same print head problems that so many others report. Nothing we tried could resolve this and a new print head is almost as expensive as the printer (and there's no guarantee that replacing the head will solve the problem anyway).
Summary: Also had the print head error fault after 18 months. Horrified to read online about how many others have had this problem and Canon's complete lack of response. Shame as was a truly exellent printer with great features but will never buy a canon printer again as seems they are designed to fail...
Absolute rubbish as it failed just out of warranty, ...

Summary: Absolute rubbish as it failed just out of warranty, We had hardly used it as we are away a lot. do a google search on all the problems with this model and class action against canon in the US.
Summary: Watch out for this seller!! NEW does not mean that, just that it has not been supplied to a customer before - so as in my case it has scratches all over the case as it was an ex-demo, if only I had not trusted a product title of NEW and read into the full description where this information was...
Summary: I bought the MG5350 a year and a half ago and it has packed in (Just after the one year warranty expired!). It now displays a hardware error code when switched on and have been advised by Canon that it will probably cost more to fix than the printer originally cost!
Summary: Either i have been unlucky or Canon Printers are made to last just over 1 year by which time the warranty has conveniently run out. This is my third Canon Printer I have had to throw away after 1 year. At first they look sleek, are quiet and have multiple useful functions.
Summary: I bought this printer just over a year ago to replace a previous Canon printer that had been brilliant for years. It worked great until the middle of my finals and then half way through printing an essay it told me I had an incorrect print head installed.
Summary: I was very content with this printer for 20 months until out of the blue it announced "U052 The type of printhead fitted is incorrect. Install the correct printhead", since when it has not worked at all.
