    Canon MG5720 reviews

    PIXMA MG5720 Wireless All-in-One Inkjet Printer (White) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Printer for the money A little complicated to set up the instructions are somewhat confusing. Once set up tho, and you don't change the settings, it works fine. The print process runs through multiple stages, quite involved and noisy compared to other printers I've owned. The print quality is good. Didn't realize the printer was this big it's low profile, but the footprint is large takes up a lot of desk space. I've had it for a couple of weeks now, with light usage. Works as expected. Decent printer for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good printer; great customer service. Purchased a few weeks ago. I bought this mainly for printing photographs; don't expect high speed output because it doesn't promise or deliver this. Pictures print out a little darker than the original on my computer screen); maybe this is normal. I installed it with no problems on my first computer; I ran into some problems installing it on a second computer, but got excellent assistance from Canon's customer service (i.e., I didn't have to wait on hold for a long time and was quickly put through to a guy who understood the problem, ran quickly through some diagnostics to pin it down, and efficiently and courteously walked me through the solution). For this alone the company deserves major kudos.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would I buy it again? Maybe. The reason I gave this printer 4 stars is one a lot of people have trouble with. The printer works great, fast and good colors but....there is always a but I suppose. I can't get it to connect with my wi-fi because I don't know a lot of the terms, it should be clearer than it is. I am hopelessly non technical (old lady) but even a friend who is better acquainted with new technology, had a hard time wth it. So its just hooked up to the PC manually :(( I would like to be able to send from my laptop in the living room though. HELP

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would buy this again for sure This is for my personal home use only. I love canon, over the years they have had great support and been very reliable printers. I have only had it a short time so I can only say so far it has been fine. I am not thrilled with the noise it makes getting ready but the pictures have printed beautifully so I tolerate the noise. I could not get it to go wifi but since my printer is next to my pc I just hooked it up and when I can I will call canon and have them help me get it on wifi. Their tech support has always been first rate. The size is important for me also, it is small yet has copy, scan and print. The negative is there is no paper reservoir so you have to feed the paper page at a time for each use. I was used to a tray that held paper so it keeps telling me no paper and reminding me I have to feed it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great printer! (with minor issues) This is a great little printer. The only 'negative' points are that the set-up is a little time consuming and there isn't much of a paper tray. The wireless setup was easy for my computer and phone, but it did take about an hour to complete the whole process. The paper tray is on the front of the machine right below the output tray. This will not hold a ream of paper, more like about 25 sheets. If you print a lot, you will be refilling he tray a lot, just a warning. I've printed a few pictures on photo paper and the images turned out fantastic. Great quality printing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy! We bought the white version first and liked it so much that we bought the second (black) version for another computer. The printing capabilities are impressive; I printed out all my Christmas letters that contained two photos on each and they came out superbly. I would have appreciated a few more choices for type of paper, but the selection that I made got the job done very well. We do a lot of copying and the results are very good, both in the color and black-and-white modes. When I scan a photo into the computer, it seems that the scan is sharper than the original, so I am very happy about that. The only thing this machine does not have is fax capability, but we seldom use faxes anyway, so that is no problem. Very happy with both printer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lives up to it's low price Cons: extraordinarily difficult to set up on my Network - and I have plenty of experience networking, like three other printers, six PCs - eventually succeeded by using the printer front panel controls. Much prefer the auto-opening tray door design of the 7200 series, which keeps everything cleaner. Pro: good quality printing - auto power up for a printing job (when its off) is a nice feature

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a printer for home use We have had this printer only for a week or two but it seems to be fine for typical home use. Word to the wise, when installing the printer driver DO NOT let it go online to download it. Make certain you tell it you want to use the CD. Installation will go MUCH quicker! Ink is expensive and the paper tray does not hold much, but for our typical use I think this will be a good printer.
