1 out of 5 eggsWorst Printer I've Had

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: Great Printer when it works!

Cons: Broke 3 months in

Other Thoughts: Printer worked GREAT for 1 month....then 2 months came in, it kept not working, I ran troubleshooting and it worked for 1 day afterwards....Then not work again. I essentially had to run trouble shooting for a few months until I had enough.

1 out of 5 eggsIncapable of feeding paper through

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: none

Cons: only worked 5 times before it broke, printer is incapable of not jamming paper, printer cannot find paper

Other Thoughts: I was extremely mislead reading the reviews on here and other information about this printer. I bought it because I am a poor college student who can only afford so much, but needs a printer. The reviews here are, for the most part, amazing so I purchased my first printer in about 10 years.

It worked about 5 times before it broke on me.

The paper keeps jamming. If the paper doesn't jam, then the printer cannot find the paper. If that's not going on, it says there's paper stuck in it when there's not.

So while trying to contact customer support for Canon, I was surprised to find out , THIS IS EXTREMELY COMMON FOR THIS PRINTER. Endless complaints of the printer doing the exact same thing it's doing to me. Endless stories of returning the piece of garbage sometimes up to 4 times or more and still having issues. Just endless negative reviews of the printer on Canon's website.

So please take more time to read all of the negative reviews before you waste about 90 bucks on this thing. Read about all of the paper issues this printer is widely known for. Do not be decieved by the 4/5 egg rating this product has on this site. Don't be like me who now is going back and forth with customer service and probably wasted money when I could hardly afford to use it when I did.

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: I can use anything that is wireless, phone, tablet, desktop/laptop. I love this feature! It prints nice, pictures look great.

Cons: The only thing I don't like about it is that I have to put everything in a PDF file. Extra steps that I don't want to take and that seems not needed.

5 out of 5 eggsGood printer

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: Good and cheap price
Easy to set up
Brand new, sealed bag and packages. No damages
It's wireless so placing it somewhere was easy.
Read some reviews saying it takes a couple minutes to boot. It took a few seconds for me so I had no problem. Maybe some people have the worst luck or there just over exaggerating.
Turning on and off takes seconds. No issue with lag or delays.
Menu takes awhile to learn but its very friendly user.
Good energy saving if you set it correctly
Printing out documents was pretty fast. Have no complaint on the speed except when printing images.
For images it takes awhile but no complaint.
You have caps for your ink cartridge, thought this was handy just incase if you dont want your ink cartridge to dry out.
Careful when taking the cap off the ink cartridge. Said there was some kind of warning not sure what it was but hey it was easy.
You have the option to use wireless or wired to your computer.
Has a pretty fast scan and copy.

Cons: Down side of this is that it's bulky and huge. If you don't have room in your room it's best to put it somewhere else closer to your modem (recommended if your using wireless).
When I was testing out the printer I had it on my bed, Not gonna lie it's somewhat loud. I could also feel vibration on my bed when it was printing (not bad or anything).
It's a printer they can be somewhat loud but it's a machine they make noises. It's not annoying so you shouldn't hear it across the room.
Printing is slow when your printing images.
The printer did come with a USB wire to hook to your Computer, so you will have to buy one (shouln't cost too much).
When I saw the box it looked beaten up, but no complaint since the printer was in good condition.

Other Thoughts: It's good printer, easy to set up.
So far so good, its been a good boy and I am very pleased with it.
The reason for buying this cuz I hated HP printers since it keeped recalibrating on me and wasting a lot of ink. Also, I needed to print stuff for my college class.
Overall it's great, ok speed depending what your printing, ink cartridge prices are ok as long as you don't buy the xl (depeding how much you are printing). Best to buy it a full pack to save money cuz if you buy a single cartridge your wasting a lot of money in the long run.

4 out of 5 eggsPleasantly Surprised

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: Easy-enough installation. Should be a touchscreen, but whatever. Cloud printing from several sources. Fast scans.

Cons: Nothing as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I was REALLY IMPRESSED when I ran out of several inks (which expectedly happened very quickly). Even with two ink tanks reporting "empty / replace now!", the printer CONTINUED TO PRINT! Several other similarly-cheap brands I've had in the past would REFUSE to print with even "low" ink (or with what the printer called "empty" but still had enough ink to slosh around when the cartridge was shaken), and I'd have to buy new ink (or kludge around it with counter-resets or whatever). THIS printer CONTINUED TO PRINT on "empty" and still actually had enough ink so I couldn't tell the difference (I wasn't too discriminating for the task but honestly I didn't notice a color/quality difference). That earns this baby a LOT of cred in my book!

5 out of 5 eggsCanon Pixma MG5520

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: The printer was 70$ when i purchased it. the print speed to price ratio is good and what i was looking for cause i do a lot of reports. The WIFI
is easy to set up and has decent range.

Cons: little bit of noise when you don't have it on noise reduction setting.

Other Thoughts: i write all reviews comparing thing to how much i spend and realizing that if you spend 70$ on a printer than i expect to get my 70$ and this exceeds what i felt like i paid for it the reason i gave it 5 EGGS

3 out of 5 eggsCheap Printer

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: Cheap @ $50. Compact size. Nice control panel. Easy wireless setup. Lots of mobile features. Decent color.

Cons: Slow boot time until ready to print & slow office printing. Not for heavy use. Heavy ink usage. WAY overpriced ink cartridges. Average color print quality. No USB thumb drive port nor memory-card reader.

Other Thoughts: Marked down from $150 to $50. I use at home. If you plan to use a printer for business office I strongly suggest paying more for a laser. If you don't need color perhaps get $400 office quality monochrome laser and use this or another inkjet for color.
