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...
Conclusion: My old MP600, which I loved, finally bit the dust. I purchased this machine and liked its ability to print CDs. I read as much as I could about this multifunction printer prior to purchasing. I really don't need wireless at home so I use a USB connection. The text and photos are outstanding.
Conclusion: Best printing I've seen in forever and easy to use menus! The only thing that could possibly be improved is something in the design. Cats love to lie on printers/scanners. The buttons on this one are a little too close to the top to avoid buttons being pressed.
Pros: reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, durable, Low Ink Consumption, Lightweight/Portable, Sharp Tones & Colors, fast print speed, easy to use
A lot of great features & super value for the price.

Summary: Good printer for the money. Sure beats the HP ink hog I had just over a year and had nothing but problems with. It's a little noisy, but makes very good copies and very good photo's. The ink seems to last longer than the piece of crap HP I had. So far it's been great.
Summary: I've been using this like crazy since I'm in college and there are things to print out all the time. I, also, have to turn in weekly attendance reports that I can easily scan in to my computer wirelessly from the printer and the software automatically converts it to a PDF file.
Conclusion: Canon printers got good reviews for Mac users, so I bought one. I got the MG 5420. It is wireless capable. However, there are a few things the instructions didn't really cover so I would like to mention them for the sake of anyone else using an Apple computer and an Airport Extreme router.
Summary: Works well like my other Canon. One negative is wireless needs to be reconnected everytime the internet goes down. I bought just before Black Friday. I could have bought locally for $49 (half the $89 I paid) on that day.
Conclusion: I didn’t read these reviews until I’d already purchased the printer and then was seriously about to return it unopened. I picked it up on a great sale with no research, because I love Canon and we wanted a Wi-Fi printer, but I never set it up.
