Mostly OK, not good for envelope printing, uses too much ink.

Research Scientist "A guy who likes data", Amazon
22 April 2011
  • Summary: I've used this printer since Christmas. It prints fast. Scanning and copying are simple and fast. Much better than the HP 960 it replaced. The big minuses so far: - No matter how carefully I follow the manual directions, when I print an address on a standard #10 envelope, the print is likely to smear, particularly in the return address. Result is unprofessional-looking envelope. - Uses too much ink.

PREPARE TO STOCK UP ON INK CARTRIDGES!

roda64, Amazon
13 April 2011
  • Summary: This is a nice looking printer, but be prepared to replace your ink cartridge at least once a month. If I had known how fast it would go through ink I would never have purchased this printer. My HP printer cartridges were a little more expensive, but I think in the long run I'm spending more on ink for this Canon printer as I have to change the ink every three weeks or so. I would not recommend this printer if you do even an average amount of printing.

Very good photo printer but thats all.

Jack M. Scott "jacessie", Amazon
15 March 2011
  • Summary: I've had the 5220 for about a month now- I have found it to be an excellant photo printer but limited as far as a copier and very poor quality scanning. The software is very lacking, compared to the older model 4600 that this replaced. Thier videos brag about it's simplicity but I have found it to be exactly the opposite. I have re-activated my old HP 500 to do my production work.

great printer, extremely difficult install

Matthew, Amazon
21 February 2011
  • Summary: This printer is far and away the most difficult install I have ever done with any piece of hardware. By way of background on me: I have been working in IT doing everything from Desktop/network support, UNIX sys admin, SAP Basis admin, security, etc since 1996, and have been into computers since 1980, so I have a bit of a background as a troubleshooter.

Difficult to set up with AirportExtreme

Lee Harvey "Mr. Harvey", Amazon
6 February 2011
  • Summary: I have iMacs set up with an AirPort Extreme router. Can't get this to work wirelessly. If I plug USB into the router it will work, but it will not work with iPad. The iPad can not see it. After struggling with it for hours, I would not choose this printer again it if it were given to me!!! I am sorry I bought it, because my goal was wireless printing for my home. I am now researching several aps that appear to make my attempted upgrade unnecessary. Ugh!

Better than HP

Amazon texas shopper "Amazon shopper", Amazon
15 November 2010
  • Summary: Better than HP printers, these drivers actually work. However connecting via WiFi is not all that easy. The instructions are poor, and if you have a hidden SSID and encrypted authentication, the SETUP on the printer can't handle that, and you have to suck the settings off your PC to a USB flash drive to transfer to printer, and even those instructions are poor.

Una stampante veloce e di buona qualità

mossuto, Ciao
17 December 2010
  • Summary: La Canon Pixma MG5220 è una stampante a colori multifunzione e a getto d'inchiostro (€ 150) che offre una notevole velocità, funzionamento silenzioso, e buona qualità nelle stampe prodotte. Come la maggior parte dei sistemi multifunzione orientati per l'uso casalingo, la MG5220 non dispone di un alimentatore automatico di documenti. Tuttavia, ha un vassorio per la stampa automatica fronte / retro e due vassoi di alimentazione da 150 fogli.
  • Pros: Stampa veloce in tutte le modalità e qualità notevole
  • Cons: Le ricariche non sono economiche ma durano il giusto
