Conclusion: This printer is a replacement for me of an old (15-20 years old?) MP830 printer. The improvements are spectacular! Thoroughly enjoying the wifi connection. And so many "goodies." Even I, not being an electronically inclined individual, could figure out the set up and how to use it.
Summary: I spent an hour or so getting this unpacked, hooked up, and ready to start printing. Wireless connected quickly once I got used to the menu and added in my information. The installation CD was weird though, I could hear the CD spinning but no screen popped up for installation.
Conclusion: Worked great in the beginning but after a while the wireless printing settings stopped working, I also don't understand how there are two ink cartridge slots for black and it won't let me just use cli-black when the the other one is out.
Conclusion: To say that I am shocked after reading so many negative reviews here....is a huge understatement! I bought this Canon about a year and a half ago, not just for one or two of the things that it was supposed to do, but for virtually everything!
Conclusion: While price was excellent, features lack.When hooked up to computer and computer calls for printing, I would prefer the option of printing in black ink only. When doing copies, I can select black only.
Great printer and great customer service from Canon!

Summary: We bought this printer in dec 2013 and had no problems what so ever until it wouldn't turn on one day. It's very easy to set up and use, prints great documents & photos and the wifi works flawlessly.
Conclusion: This is by far the worst printer I ever encountered in my life! It is a total piece of garbage. If you ever want to just print in black and white, forget it- unless you have full ink in every compartment plus an extra large black one.
Conclusion: A few points on MG5420 wireless printer installation that may keep you from seeing some of the problems seen by some of those who have complained about difficulty with the wireless setup, 'no response from printer' problems, and extremely slow printing--I've seen them, too, but I've fixed them--at...

Summary: This printer does all it is said to be capable of and does it well. It was easy to install (on a Windows 7 SP1 64bit computer). The output is great and it is easy to use. I couldn't be happier.
