Disclosure: I received this product as a free sample. Shipping: I was first impressed with how securely it was packed. I had some concern over how it would fare in the mail, but everything in the box was snug and protected. Design (physical): My only qualm with the physical design of the printer itself is that the lid to the scanner is flimsier than I would like. Everything else is sturdy including the paper and printing tray. I like that the paper tray slides into the machine a little; it's nice to not have the paper sticking out far. You also have to extend the printing tray every time or else the pages fly off but that's minor. Set Up: It's very simple to set up. It doesn't take too long at all. It comes with a disc should you need one, but you can also download it via the website given in the instructions and you go through a simple installation wizard. I also installed the app on my iPhone, and that was actually quicker and easier than installing it on my computer. I had absolutely no issues printing from my computer immediately. It's been awhile since I've had a printer in my home and one thing that caught me off guard was the TOS that came up (and I had to agree to on the device, my computer and my phone) - it says it collects information about your computer (or phone) such as OS and driver, ink and paper usage, sheets printed, maintenance information, and "environment" conditions. So if you're a tinfoil hat type, maybe this printer isn't for you. It was nice to be told up front they're collecting this information though. One thing I really appreciate about this printer is it is incredibly user friendly. It has a little screen that gives you diagrams for how to install the ink cartridges. The ink cartridges also light up when they are placed correctly which is incredibly useful. Printing: It is a very quiet printer. The printing speed is average. The quality of printing on the photo paper is nice - it's perfect for simple photo collages or scrapbooking. Printing from a mobile device (I used my iPhone) has a default of 6x4 but you can easily change it. I was really pleased with how my photos from my phone came out, and the app was easier to use than I expected. It prints a little dark from a computer, but that could be my screen - do a trial run of the photo before you waste ink. It was far more "true to image" from my phone. Still, letters are crisp and if you're printing photos on normal paper those look alright too. Scanning / Copying: The copying can be done right from the machine and the letters are that of a large print book - very easy to see. I really like the scanning feature - you can scan to a photo format or document format and you can do it right from your computer or the printer and send it to any computer connected to it. The program is slower than I prefer, though. Overall: Nice home printer for basic document or simple photo printing needs. Easy enough for most people to use and very quiet.

When I first got my CANON printer I was so excited. I needed a printer badly and I had heard nothing but great things about this one. I set it up that night and used it faithfully for a bout a week. However, after about one week my printer just stopped working entirely . It would not connect to my labtop to print anymore and I couldn't figure out why for the life of me. I was so confused I even went as far as to call the IT guy for my school and see if he could figure it out. He suggested I reset the printer and start over. So I did, and it worked ! For another week. Then like clock work it stopped again. I'm not entirely sure if it was a malfunction with the printer or if it could have possible been the wifi in my building but all I know is now.. After having my printer for a few weeks , it's used for nothing more than a paper weight, unless I need to copy a document. I was very disappointed with this printer overall because I thought it was going to be my little life saver when it came to doing my assignments and it let me down.

NEVER AGAIN.

By 

from Towson, MD, United States

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

My parents bought this printer for my college dorm room. Never ONCE have I printed something out of this and have thought to myself, "Wow, I love this printer!" Instead, there's a technical problem every time. Not only is this printer very slow and EXTREMELY loud, but it has paper jams everyday. The way this printer is designed is just terrible. I mean, the paper is constantly getting jammed and taking it out afterwards is a process in itself. Super annoying, the paper always rips and then there are "foreign objects" inside so it is unable to print. Wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy. I'm just out here tryna get a degree but I cannot print my work with this god awful printer.

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

This printer is an excellent choice for me. We were looking for an inexpensive printer that would work with our Chromebooks and tablets and this model was a good match. So far it has been easy to use and provides quality prints and copies.

Excellent!

By 

from Western Michigan, USA

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

A great printer in the PIXMA line! This MG5720, replaces my 12 year old Pixma ip4000. The Instructions are clear to follow. Setup and install were trouble free. I chose to use the included Canon Install CD. Admittedly, I connected via a USB to Desktop connection, which works better for my particular needs. *(USB Printer Cord sold Separately ) Color Reproduction results favored adjusting colors downward -30 in the color settings, (all three colors found in Manual settings). Afterward the PIXMA MG5720 did a Beautifully Job, and matched exactly my original Photos and Graphic Artwork when Printed. Great Product Canon! Very Satisfied.

Has been better than I even thought it would be!

By 

from Cumming GA

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

I bought one of these a while ago to use in my business, not even knowing it had the features it does. I was surprised that it had two sided printing. I found that out by accident when printing a document. I had zero issues connecting it to my network, and when the option to select it as a printer popped up on my iPhone, I was ecstatic! I can honestly say ive had no problems with this printer at all. I am not super tech savvy, but i can quickly scan things to my desktop on the other side of my bakery. My computer is old (runs WinXP) and Ive still had zero issues. Ive never had it drop off the network, or any other connectivity issues whatsoever. I strongly recommend this printer. I absolutely love it!!

It prints most things well

By 

from Kansas City, MO, United States

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

I purchased this printer to replace an aging Epson printer. I was impressed with the clarity of the print in a store demonstration. However, it has two problems that I can't overlook. First, the touch screen is very insensitive, many times I need to use a dampened stylus before it will respond. Secondly, I have yet to master printing on CD/DVD's. The disc carrier must be inserted with an arrow on the carrier matched up with an arrow on the machine.Some times it prints properly but most times the printing is off center by as much as an inch. Not good.

Finally, a great printer!

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

I received this printer as a product sample. Wow, it really does a great job. Good quality printer, and have no problem using on my laptop or phone. You can use within 15 minutes of opening the box. It did, however, take a little tech smarts to be able to set this up â€" nothing major. It's also larger in size than I thought, so it would take up a large portion of a desk. I have mine set up in my living room. Regardless, I would definitely recommend to someone looking for a high quality, low cost printer.

Good Printer

By 

from Cherry Hill. NJ

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

I recieved a product sample. Overall, it is a good printer. It is very fast and it is very high quality. My only problem with it is that before or after you print something out of it, it makes a very loud reloading sound for a minute or 2. Other than that, it is a very good printer and I would recommend it.

This product is easily set up. I had an easy time connecting to my phone and computer. I loved how it connected to my phone too! This product was given to me as a free sample and i am so happy.

I loved this product.

I really enjoy the PIXMA MG5720 Canon printer. The setup was easy and the printer works well. I have scanned, copied, and printed with this printer and have no complaints.

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

Took some time to set up but after that it has worked flawlessly. Really easy and convenient for college kids since its small so it can easily fit on a small table that dorms usually provide. Haven't had a single problem all year with it and would gladly recommend this to anyone that needs a printer.

Does the job!

By 

from Columbia, MO

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

I received this printer as a review sample. At first, I had the hardest time setting up my printer to my computer... but I know that it was because of the wifi connection on campus. I really like just how versatile this printer is!! Printing from my phone or computer is very convenient, and this printer prints in a great quality. My only critiques are that it prints a bit slower than I had initially thought and that it is bigger than a 'compact' size. Overall, I would definitely recommend this printer to other people!

Great photo quality, good price

By 

from Portland

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

I got this as a free sample for review. Must say for the price I'm impressed with the quality of the photo prints. Inkjets are of course built for high quality "glossy" style photos and this one definitely makes my list of a higher end print job for a lower end price. One thing it has like all lower price inkjets is that print speed is SLOOOW.. Like deathly slow. Don't be in a hurry with this thing or you will soon be throwing it out the window. That's why I prefer laserjets for document printing. Ink gets expensive and laser toner is faster. THat said, you can't beat this printer for high quality photos. Cloud printing is nice too, obviously I want to be able to print from my laptop with ease, but being able to hook up my cellphone and tweak dropbox to print simple documents is easy. Overall, not a bad printer for a definitely good price. One last thing, the sound of this printer setting up sounds like its tearing itself apart. There is some loud machine work going on in this printer so its best not to use it on late nights or with dorm-mates sleeping.

Needs a little work

By 

from Columbia, MO

Comments about Canon PIXMA MG5720 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Photo Print - Desktop:

I had to re-install the printer program twice on my computer to get it to work. The time it takes to print after I tell it too on my computer is way too long it just sits and rolls for a minute before it prints. And I have a couple of these in one house and it is hard for us to figure out which printer is whose.

I received this printer as a review sample and absolutely love it. I live in a college sorority and it looks great in my room. I can print from all of my personal electronics and love the simplicity and user-friendliness of it.
