Summary: I liked the looks of it allot, and the way the lid opens when it is printing! Prints very good pictures, and scans great! Very nice features, that I thought was really nice. I was glade that I had bought it.
FIVE STAR PRINTER***** Don't pass this printer up.
17 March 2014
Summary: Excellent print quality! This is my first Canon printer, always used HP or Epson. Nice to have 2 paper cartridges. I only use this printer for photos so 8 X 11 in bottom cartridge and 4 X 6 in top, no more having to mess with switching paper and adjusting paper guides.
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. My only caveat is that I would love for the second tray to also use standard paper.
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. The MG5420 reproduces the colors of your original documents flawlessly.
Summary: Purchased in early January 2014. I use it mostly for printing PDF's, power points, word and excel docs and have been pleasantly surprised at its speed, quality of prints, and functionality. Only a few times have I used some of its other features such as scan and copy (to name a few because it has so many), but it has performed flawlessly. I usually set print quality on the low side to conserve ink, but after more than a hundred pages..
