Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incomprehensible Directions I've used lots of home and office printers and printer-scanners in my life, of different brands and kinds, and have never found one so utterly frustrating as the Canon 5520. The directions, including the online manuals, are incomprehensible and make what should be simple operations difficult to impossible. For example, I've owned the printer-scanner a year and still can't figure out how a simple photo scan is supposed to work. When I've managed it, it has been almost accidental. (Entering "scan" as a keyword in the manual search function turns up nothing. When I stumbled upon a "how to scan a photo" section, which was encased in a lot of jargon and rigamarole, it sent me on a series of tasks that kept resulting in an endless loop directing me back to the utility menu, which would send me back to the same supposed instruction page.) The Image Garden and so-called Quick Menu clutter your desktop without being actually helpful. I've resorted to homemade videos on YouTube to learn how to do such seemingly simple tasks as changing the printer cartridges. I've fairly tech-savvy, familiar with lots of software and with both Macs and PC's, and patient with reading instructions. But not only is this machine not user-friendly, I would say it's actually user-hostile. Canon is supposed to be a good company, and I thought this would be a good buy when I purchased it a year ago. It's terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up Printer I am not technically adept, so I was very surprised and pleased with the easy setup and use of this printer. Also it is the first time I have had a wireless printer, which has really been a pleasure. Have had no problems with it in the 3 weeks since purchase. No reservations in recommending it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Printer Needs More Features Replaced a Canon MP620 due to print head failure after four years with no other problems. Setup was easy using the CD and the Quick Install Guide. Connected wireless with no problem. IPad app connected without problem. Like the feature of 5 separate ink tanks like the MP620 to cut ink cost down. Scan to PDF was simple to use. LCD display clear and again easy to use. Improvements should be a another feed tray like the MP620. To print 4x6 photos need to remove 8.5x11 paper. MP620 had a rear tray to feed 4x6. Also rear tray was good to print on one sheet of special paper. Paper tray does not slide into unit like the MP620 and when closing the paper tray it bends the paper up a little. Platen cover is OK but not too sturdy. There is no Ethernet connection only USB and wireless. MP620 was Ethernet but no wireless. Overall well satisfied but needs some features the MP620 has.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Load Paper I get the load paper error every time I print. I have to push paper in and move the tray 3 or 4 times to get things to print. Good thin I don't print often.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the Quality I Expected From Canon I used a MP560 for several years. I needed to replace the print head and found this model, said to be a newer model/version of the MP560, actually cost less than the print head for the MP560, so I purchased it, instead of the print head. I am really disappointed in this model. It was advertised as having memory card slots, which I used regularly on the MP560. The features section of the description states, "Memory Cards: Don't feel like using a computer? Just insert a compatible memory card into the built-in card slot, select images on the LCD, and print." If it has one, I can't find it, either on the printer or by searching the support section on the Canon website. There is no paper tray... just a sheet feeder. You can't leave paper in the printer and close it when the printer is not in use. It, also, doesn't hold much paper. The print head holder feels very flimsy, which I find very concerning. The only problem I ever had with the MP560 was the print head and this feels very unstable, causing me to think even replacing ink cartridges could damage the print head. There are a couple of redeeming qualities: I found this model easy to set up. I plugged it in, turned it on, and followed the directions. From unpacking to first document printed was less than 10 minutes. Easy to set for duplex printing. Open the printer menu, click on duplex printing and that's all there is to it.
