Great Printer

Canon PIXMA MG5420 is a great printer. I like the design and the profile is very low if not a little wide but it’s not a big problem. He looks almost “elegant”.

Fast and great quality. Scanning 4″ x 6″ photos are completed in a very short period of time, between 20-30 seconds. The photos are clear, the color is quite accurate and the details are clear. I am very happy with the ability to scan this machine!

Set to 600 DPI default for photos it does a fantastic job.
