Main use: disc printing

Arthur H, Canon
2 weeks ago
  • Conclusion: This is my first Canon printer, purchased solely to print CD and DVD labels straight to disc. It's the ONLY consumer inkjet I will use for this purpose now. Once I discovered that this cannot be done wirelessly, but requires a USB connection (an inconvenience if you want to print from multiple computers), and once I figured out how to set up to print from my very common Mac-based label printing software, I was good to go.
  • Pros: reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors, very good disc printing, not its competitors
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, High Ink Consumption, messy documentation

Just okay.

  • Summary: After doing A LOT of research I decided to give this model a try. I read dozens of reviews, mostly good, and made my decision. I'm happy with the overall quality, size and look for the small space I have to put it in. It seems to print some very nice photos, but I haven't put it through it's paces a great deal with that just yet.

Not a bad printer for the price.

  • Summary: It's not a bad printer for the price. It takes a while from the time that you press print on the computer until your document is printed.

Painfully slow startup

  • Conclusion: Quality of print is good but this printer takes forever to wake up and start printing. Making a copy of a document from a sleeping printer takes at least 5 minutes.

Canon printer MF5420

gs21a, Canon
26 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Ordered this when my older Canon printer died last year after 5 years of faithful service. Never occurred to me that the newer Canon printers would not have a rear paper tray. Sorely disappointed that the second paper tray is in the front and only accepts small photo paper. I don't know why everyone assumes that the only use for these printers is photo printing. Some of us still use a desktop printer for office / clerical needs.
  • Pros: good quality, good price
  • Cons: no rear paper tray, scans file size is too large, too slow to start printing

I want my old Canon printer back!

Jian P. Liu "JPL", Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: I used to be a happy Cannon printer user. I have used my MP530 for years until it's printer head out of order. I ordered MG5420 to replace my old printer. But I am a bit disappointed, especially the software. Some functions in the old printer are disappeared. Users don't have much control. I don't know what are in Canon engineer's head, they think they are smarter and make better decisions than you do yourself. All these menu looks fancy but not practical for me.

Won't Stop Printing

Chick, Canon
6 February 2014
  • Conclusion: This printer prints the most beautiful photos of any printer I have ever owned. I use a Canon Rebel camera. My problem is once it prints a photo or document, it just keeps on printing until you turn it off. It looses it's memory. It gives me the message that the printer is not responding, sometimes it isn't and sometimes it is responding when it says it isn't and it prints and prints and prints.
  • Pros: most beautiful true to life photos
  • Cons: won't stop printing.

Troublesome machine, good results

Frustrated, Canon
9 January 2014
  • Conclusion: The pixma 5420 does produce beautiful photos. It is very, very slow making photocopies or printing print jobs. Alas, it comes with no instructions whatsoever, so EVERY last stupid error message must be researched ad infinitum on the internet, where the manual is also not easily available and simple things are never explained.
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, Large Footprint, unreliable, High Ink Consumption
