4 out of 5 eggsPleasantly Surprised

This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG5520 (Black) Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

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 (Black) Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

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 (Black) Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

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.

4 out of 5 eggsJury still out but so far so good

This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG5520 (Black) Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

Pros: Wireless. Can be set up basically anywhere within range of your wifi connection. Pretty fast printing on paper. Have not tried on photos yet.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: have not been able to get my Samsung galaxy to connect with the printer yet. Time will tell but I am not sure why some people have had connectivity problems to their pc or network. I had mine up and running wirelessly in about an hour after opening the packaging. The printer is stand alone and my pc connects through it via wifi network router. So far it works flawlessly but now I have to get my mobile devices connected to it. That seems to be a little more complicated.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat printer!

This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG5520 (Black) Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

Pros: Great printer with lot of functionality included.

Cons: The only concern might be future ink cost, so I would recommend cheap laser printer to go along this one for printing black and white.

5 out of 5 eggsIn a word - Awesome

This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG5520 (Black) Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

Pros: OK, so I've only had this thing for a few days but already I can tell it's a great printer. The price was incredible, something like $56.00, $100.00 instant discount.

The fact that it's wireless also makes this printer excellent. I have an HP Color Laser-Jet printer which is also networked. My wife has a Mac and has been using the color Laser-Jet for all her printing needs which eats up a lot of expensive toner. Now she can use the Canon which requires much less expensive ink. The difference between the two types if ink/toner is around $15.00 for all five cartridges & in the $200.00 range for the laser-Jet toner cartridges.

It's a nice size for a printer as far as most combo printers go. The scanning bed sits above the printer, giving it a nice flat top. The printer itself is ~ 6" tall, including the scanning bed, which makes it very low profile, especially when compared to the laser printers (have a block & white HP Laser-Jet as well). You can also scan a document over the network if you want to, though this seems like a useless feature to me (more on that below).

The printer drivers were simple to install (more on that below as well).

Cons: So far I haven't found any cons, but keep in mind I've only had it hooked up & operational for a few days.

Other Thoughts: As I mentioned above, this printer has a feature that allows the user to scan a document from any computer on your network. However, one would have to go to the printer to place the document you want to scan on the printer bed. I suppose it makes it easier to get the file which was scanned to the user's machine. As I mentioned above, my wife has both a Mac laptop as well as an iPad.

Regarding the driver installation, I would recommend going to the Canon website and downloading the specific driver file (which you have to do if you're using a Mac as the driver disc supplied does not support the Mac). If you install from the disc included with the printer, you get a slew of additional programs. I suppose that may be a bonus for users who want to do a lot of photography. For me, however, I only need it for nursing school documents. You can easily print a photo from any program as well, so the additional programs are useless to me, just taking up room on my C disc (which is a Samsung 250 GB SSD, so space on this disc is somewhat limited). I could have easily put the drivers/programs on any other of my 11 sATA drives had the installer given me the choice. This isn't enough to lose an egg however.

I highly recommend this printer if your finances are somewhat limited and you don't need a high end professional printer for photos. This Canon is ~ mid range as compared to other Ink-Jet printers.
