Summary: Review for Canon MG 5220 all-in-one printer. I don't normally submit reviews for products that have been reviewed over 200 times already but I feel it necessary to add a few comments to the reviews I read about this printer. As a retired computer professional, one of my pet peeves is people who don't read the manual and then complain about something not working correctly.
Summary: Length:: 4:45 Mins This is a great printer for the price. I checked out various others before deciding on this one. Positives are wireless printing, fairly quiet operation, ability to print from memory cards, bottom and top loading trays, a LCD screen allows for printing copying and scanning without use of a PC. You can also send scans and copies to a PC from the printer's menu.
Summary: I was a long time without printer. Now got this one and im really enjoying it: Cons: No Fax No Bulk Scan Photos ofter prints looks darker than they are on any other place Pros: Easy setup (Im using via WIFI) Fast Cheap if compare to similar specification printers
Summary: This printer/scanner/copier has already paid for itself in square footage. By that, I mean that I have already converted 4 years worth of business paperwork into PDF files. This thing is QUICK at scanning, and at printing. My only gripe is the lack of third party ink. You MUST buy original Canon manufacturer ink, as the cartridges use RF chips to monitor their use and quantity of ink. Refilling is also a pain since the cartridges are not clear or opaque.

Summary: As my title says, I have only one complaint. When one color runs out, the printer does not print. I never understood why this upset my friends & colleagues until I needed to print just one black & white. I could not print it until my one replacement ink cartridge arrived, even thought I was not replacing the black! Pros: - Easy to set up! - Beautiful print work! - Copies look just as good as the original! - Text is clear & crisp. - Not an ink hog!
Summary: I do like my Pixma very much. It's the first printer I've bought just for printing digital photos. I like the fact that I can print photos, and everything else, from my laptop as I recline and semi-snooze anywhere around the house. I also appreciate, very much, the color and sharpness qualities of the photos it produces. I like my homemade prints more than the prints from the labs I also patronize and upload to for printing.
Summary: I bought the Pixma MG5220 after considerable research. It was easy to set up and use, fit into my small space and has Canon's great support. But it has a major downside: it uses the expensive ink up much too quickly, even without printing any photos. Canon support recommended not turning the machine off often, which will use electricity.
Summary: It's a little lazy getting started, but i can live with that. Images quality and features are awesome. If you are not desperated and wait until this printer wakes up, you won't feel disappointed.
