Excerpt: One year old. Worked well until a needs service screen msg. showed up. Would not accept print orders. Problem is no one services these products as they are considered "Throw-a-ways". Was not heavily used either. Had a greater expectation of durability from Canon.
Excerpt: I am pretty tech savvy, and this printer has sucked up so much of my time over the last couple years. I am surprised when I hit print and it actually happens. More often, I get an error code of some sort and have to try to figure out what the problem is for an hour, resetting the printer,...
Excerpt: This printer is compact (MG5420) but very slow printing. Does not have option for all black copies from computer.
It was challenging to set up the wireless but if you are patient and go step by step it works very well.
Excerpt: This is my 6th Canon printer and they are beginning to lose my confidence overall. As others have noted, this printer is the slowest to initiate printing that I have ever had. It just grinds, whirs and clunks for many minutes before beginning to print.
Excerpt: I had a Canon Pixma printer previously that I loved. It stopped working suddenly after 5+ yrs of use. It printed excellent photos. I thought it would be great to have a wireless printer. It is great when it works.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, easy to use
Cons: Dull Tones & Colors, High Ink Consumption, unreliable
Excerpt: This printer is very slow to start printing. Scanned images are fuzzy and the colors are not the same brightness as the scanned image. Printed image comes out dull and the colors are not the same as the original image being printed. Don't waste your money on this printer!!!
Excerpt: If it were not for the excessive ink costs this would be a GREAT little all-in-one printer. My last 5 printers were all great Canon Printers that all used separate ink cartridges but this one will send you into bankruptcy.
Pros: all the great qualities pale with ink cost!
Cons: ink cost way too high!, again = it burns through ink and costs are high
Excerpt: Bottom line is Canon is ensuring their customers only can print on NORMAL or BEST (i.e.: use up lots of expensive Canon ink cartridges) quality. I can see DRAFT mode but it is greyed out on the slide bar when you try to chose it. I am using a 2012 Macbook Air.
Pros: Compact Design, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Cons: Slow Print Speed, High Ink Consumption, no draft mode
