Summary: I am a stay at home mom of 2 kids with special needs, and I go to college. I've had this printer for 2 years, and it's had light to moderate use. While it's worked, it's been great. It scans nicely, is pretty easy to use, and I've had no problems scanning to USB drives or cards. It does go through quite a bit of ink so if you are worried about that, try to set your printer to grayscale only and then the lightest printing option.
Summary: I love Canon for their cameras and printers. The scanner has amazing resolution (few hundreds of Megabytes each pic in high resolution), I would say.. almost an microscope. The printer is fast, good colors. Looks good in my office. Has many options, no need of computer or cellphone to print a doc or picture.
Summary: For what it is worth, my experience with this printer, which I've owned for about 13 months now, has been very good. Good quality prints, no real problems. I think this is a quite good printer of its sort. It is kind of slow, and if I'm gone and don't use it for a few days it has to warm up and go through its little stretches, but copying, color printing, photo printing--everything is fine. No fuss. No problems.
Summary: My wife calls this the magic printer. She loves the versatility of being able to print with the Canon App from her IPAD2 directly to the printer. It's pretty nifty and convenient. It prints from the SD Card and gives you the option to select how many pics, or which pics to print (IE; ALL, 1, 2 or as many as you like). She also loves the the printing aspect of this printer.
Summary: I have had this printer for a while and wanted to wait to write a review to make sure it held up. Reviews written as soon as I get something are not as helpful. I am not the best at electronics and recieved excellent help from Cannon setting it up. I probably could have set it up myself but it was my first wireless printer so I was taking no chances.
Summary: I purchased the 5220 in June, 2011, as I didn't need the fax capability of the other Canon MFP line. I chose Canon after less than stellar results from the previous HP and Epson printers, and because this printer has the individual ink tanks the HP and Epson did not have. I've found it to be an excellent choice for a home office where a lack of a fax capability isn't a critical item.
Summary: I do a lot of printing, printing thousands of mailing labels each year, among other things. Like other printers, the labels were eventually getting stuck. I finally realized I could load them in the back slot and no longer have the jamming problem. Printer companies make their $ on ink. Now here are the tricks to using this printer to avoid it. When it prompts you to put in a new cartridge, press down the stop button until the message disappears.
Summary: A nice little printer for a good price. The most expensive issue, as usual, are the ink tanks which need replacing, as with so many printers, too often. And the fact that it will not work with one color out, is annoying. Get back up tanks and keep them on hand so a time essential project doesn't get put on hold when the dreaded "yellow tank is almost empty" message appears. The print quality is very good and it has a nice array of features.
Summary: So far I'm very satisfied with my printer. It was very easy to set up and the user manual that installs onto your computer is insanely helpful on helping you figure out how to print double sided, etc. My only complaint so far is that it really doesn't print too fast. Disappointed in that, but I guess I will have to suck it up.
Summary: I bought this to replace one of the first wireless photo printers made, an HP 7180. I didn't throw the old one away because it will scan and convert film and slides, but it is a little problematic to use because it's very slow to respond to commands, and it just won't act as a LAN printer on the same network as my router.
