I was looking for something to replace my old HP printer. This was right in my budget and had all the bells and whistles I wanted. Pros: Sleek Design, Quiet mode, Fast Printing, Great Scans, Great Price. Cons: Takes almost a full minute or two to get started printing. (I will disable automatic shutdown so it will always stay on.)
This printer hands down beats the Epson printer that I just replaced. $60 cheaper and does much more, such as printing on both sides of the paper and printing on discs. The setup was a breeze, even for me (not a geek like my kids). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is it takes way too long to start printing, and a bit noisy before it starts printing. The print quality is very good compared to my Epson 1500 series. An excellent value for $89 plus a free ream of print paper and a free flash drive to boot.
Overall, I love this printer. It makes wonderful color copies quickly. I use a scanner a lot in my home based business & this scanner was difficult to learn to use as far as cropping & editing the scans. Not nearly as user friendly on the startup as my old Lexmark. My biggest complaint- no one carries the ink for this printer. Wal-Mart only sells it online. If they are going to sell a printer at a store, why not carry the ink for it there as well? Had I known this, I would have purchased another printer. But as far as getting the job done, Canon delivers on this printer for home use. Thumbs up!
Very nice printer. Bought as a replacement for another brand which didn't last long. Always heard canon was a good brand. Very easy to set up. Nice looking. Easy to use. May take a little longer to print, but not that long and great for me as I don't need high speed. Print quality is nice. Love how the tray pops out for the copied print to come out on. Great communication with puter-ie., great toolbar. Yes I recommend this for anyone. We shall see how long the ink and printer last.
Takes quite a while to warm up but the quality of the prints are very good. Easy set up user friendly!
I was looking for a photo printer and this delivers! My only gripe is how cheap it feels. Overall all, prints beautifully!!
I love this printer! I just wish that it worked a little bit faster.
Works great. A few instructions were not clear.
I bought this to replace a $25 HP printer that finally gave out after several years use. Size-wise it takes about twice the desk space as my old HP.
Because this printer offers wireless printing they are too cheap to include the $2 USB cord to use it wired. Also I power my printer from a power strip so that it doesn't suck power when not in use but this printer will not automatically power on when power is restored, you must physically press the power button on top of the printer.
Earlier tonight I printed a single black text page from Microsoft Word and it took at least 3 minutes to print the one page, 2 and a half of that was "preparing to print" which sounds like more head cleaning etc. And when you power it off it takes at least 30seconds to clean the heads and park them. I suspect I'm loosing more ink every time it cleans the heads than I have actually printed on paper. All of this time is significantly greater than my old cheap HP.
Also, instead of a paper tray just the width of the largest paper it holds, the entire side of the printer must open up which is that much more desk space you must leave clear.
I suggest you avoid this printer. I wish I had.
This is a fantastic printer for under $60. Nice printing, quiet operation (if you enable quiet mode), and the wireless setup was straightforward. The scanner is high resolution, and when set to auto mode adjusts to scan the size of the original. I've tried printing directly from my phone and that works too, without needing the help of a computer. It can process the picture or document through Google cloud print or Apple's AirPrint.
The negatives are confined to the printing function and are pretty common to most if not all inkjets --- namely, a set of replacement ink cartridges will cost you more than the printer itself; initial wait time for a print job is interminably long and sounds as though the machine is preparing to give birth; and this particular model doesn't have a rear feed tray for heavier paper stock. Also, the Canon software is a bit bloated but you can remove some of it if computer space is a problem.
But those are pretty common issues. If you've owned inkjets in the past and know what you're getting into, this one is a great value in my opinion.
It's an ok printer. It doesn't have the print quality for a photo that I thought it would have. It is also really slow to print, I generally go and find something else to do while waiting. The print copy is clear and I do like that. It also doesn't come with the usb cord that Walmart says is with it.
After having four HP printers, I thought trying out Canon Pixma would be a good move. My new printer is "louder", "Slower", "Heavier", and "more difficult to set up". I hope I will get use to it and
learn how to use it more effectively.
I love my printer. The colors are terrific. It is slow, esp. if you are use to a fast printer. One thing that I wished would have come with it is a users guide. It will do a lot of things according to my friend, but I don't know how to work it. All I know how to do at this time is click on print. That is why I gave it a lower rating on ease of use.
I had other people than I try to load paper and commented the tray is defective - also paper that was supposed to be included was not there and another part also was missing. I thought Cannon printers had a good rep
Canon makes excellent printer. I have been using Canon's for many years and I am satisfy until it stopped working. I cannot complain because I always use OEM ink instead of the expensive ink.
The Canon MG5422 has been all I expected and more. At half the price, it beat out the comparable Epson printer that I had previously tried to use. It is a great value and apparently is a good quality unit. Time will tell, but I have used this in auto-duplexing mode and printed nearly 100 pages of output.
The only Cons might be the noise, but I can live with that. The Pros far out weigh any possible bad features. The menu system and control panel can be a bit confusing until you understand how it operates, and that is the reason I gave it only a 'Good' for ease of use. Overall I think it is a great printer and value.
I bought this printer to use for cakes, with edible ink and sugar sheets, it does a great job and is completely food safe as long as it is NEW and never had regular ink ran through it. For any of you cakers out there this is a great little printer and way less than the others.
Nothing is ever perfect, but this unit is great! I agree with other reviewers, it's a bit slow warming up. Other than that it is easy to set up, great prints, separate ink tanks for economical operation and Walmart offers it a very attractive price.
I bought the Canon MG5420 model from Walmart store and it was easy to set up and I found it quite worthwhile. Only cost less than $75 from the store which was a bonus as well.
I don't need a malfunction printer since I have and prefer a standalone high quality scanner. I also have a space constraint for my printer which I must take into consideration. The HP printer that met my requirements for features and space died therefore requiring a replacement.
I couldn't find a standalone printer that met my space and feature requirements at a reasonable price, thus I made this purchase and made major changes to the organization of my workspace.
Wireless setup was simple and everything seems to work fine, so no complaints there. Startup is slower than I'm accustomed to following power on, so I leave the printer in standby mode which seems to rectify that issue and works for me.
The one area that I believe needs some improvement is the printer and scanner user settings following initial installation as they can be somewhat confusing. The use of the physical control panel on the printer is also confusing and a little too old school even to me and I tend to be a little old school myself. I have no need for the additional software applications that are included so after installing them initially to see what they did, I uninstalled them. That's a personal thing.
Overall I find this printer to be feature rich and produce very good print quality. Photo print quality is one of my priorities.
If you've already owned any brand of inkjet printer I don't need to mention the high cost of replacement ink, but I will anyway. I helped minimize this problem somewhat by purchasing a laser printer that I use for any printing not requiring color. For me that means everything but photos.
