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.
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!
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.
It was easy to install (on a Windows 7 SP1 64bit computer)

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.
Summary: I purchased this from Target (3/19/14) since it was on sale for $44.98 (Originally $150). I previously had a Epson Stylus CX6600 and wanted to get a wireless printer, since I was tired of constantly having to hook up the usb cord to my computer every time I needed to print something.
Conclusion: I've been using Canon printers for 20 years and won't buy anything else. It is designed for home use and light office rather than heavy office use, so keep that in mind. I use mine a lot to print knitting patterns I'm going to be doing to save wear and tear on the magazine or book it's in.
Cons: does not allow regular paper in the second tray.l
Conclusion: The PIXMA printer MG5420 produces amazing detail in both documents and photographs with 9600 x 2400 color and a 5-Color Ink System with a sixth cartridge that makes your color prints on glossy paper look like they came from the printers . Replacing the ink is quick and easy.
Summary: The slim size of the MG5420 makes it surprising this all-in-one has two paper trays. Printing a 4x6 photo took approximately 20 seconds with quality comparable to that of a drug store photo print.
