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! I was nervous because I usually don't have great luck buying any type of electronics, and I'm used to having to return items and eventually getting one that works on the 2nd or 3rd try. Not this time! Set up was a breeze...
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. As I mentioned, one day last week the unit was dark and wouldn't turn on so we tried several obvious things : changing power strips, turning it off for awhile, unplugging it and holding the power button down for three minutes to discharge the capacitors etc.
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.

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.
