2 thumbs down
This is the worst printer I've ever owned. I loved my last canon printer and when it need replace I bought this one but much to my surprise its loud and it takes almost 5 min to stat to print! It has a boat load of options for printing but this to takes forever to set up EVERYTIME you want to print. I really hope I can get my money back and get something a bit more realistic. I will say once you get it to print it does have Canon quality prints but its so not worth the time it takes to get it to work.

slow inefficient scanner
I have not had this copier, scanner, printer very long. However in the short time the MG5420 is slow. The scanner stitch function only allows 2 pages, not 3, 4, or the real number of pages that belong to a particular document to be scanned together. Very inefficient scanning ability. The MG5420 did connect well to my daughter's MAC computer.

Good printer at a fair price
This printer was easy to connect and begin using.The one question I had on product registration was quickly answered by the customer service people.
I also have a Canon Image Class 5770 that has given me trouble free service for six years.

I previously owned a Canon MP470, which I LOVED...but I needed a WiFi connection. This was on sale and seemed to fit the bill. WRONG. As the other reviewer have said: SLOW, SLOW SLOW...LOUD,LOUD, LOUD. Print outs and photos are OK, but not as good as my old Canon. Unfortunately I gave that old one away. Guess I'll be giving this one away too!
