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..
Conclusion: instructions to install this printer were very easy to understand and implement. love the photo quality and just the overall ease of use. downloaded the android app for this printer and it works great!!! thanks...

Conclusion: I have read almost all the reviews and The people reporting slow, I ask, is 20 seconds for a 4x6, ( I get excellent prints onphoto paper, in about 27 seconds)to slow? Difficult setup? Did you use the install disk or just blunder around? Quality, at hi resoultion (9600dpi) I will put this printer againts ANY printer, AND Win! Draft mode use grey scale, noisey, turn on quiet mode. People, you have to read the manual. Really!
Pros: reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, durable, Low Ink Consumption, Lightweight/Portable, Sharp Tones & Colors, fast print speed, easy to use
Conclusion: Setup was easy, follow the directions. I am running Win 7 x64 ver. "You don't even need the setup CD to setup the drivers or wireless, Windows does all the work for you. Step 1, at the printer, connect to the Router. Step 2, Go to Computer and connect to printer in Add Printer section, select new printer and bam! Windows loads all the drivers and sets up everything for you. Simple.
