Top customer reviews
Small-Office/High-End Home Office Printing has typically been the range of all-in-one laser printers by HP and Xerox. Inkjets historically have catered purely to the consumer home user and other niches, as they have issues with print speed and overall cost per page when deployed for wide use.
Canon has a very well known brand in the consumer space, especially photography, and is trying to leverage that brand to invade the small office market, at least for small start-ups with <20 employees - especially those businesses on a limited budget. The good news is that Canon seems to recognize the challenge and isn't releasing any business products that won't be credit. The bad news is that Canon maybe overselling what inkjet technology is capable of, at least at this price point. The processor of the MB5320 also can be a little sluggish at times - I think it is depending on the OS print/scan drivers to fill in for additional power.
OK - here are the details you want to know, and my test results after using the printer intensely for a few days with extensive tweaking. First the good news:
Business document print quality is _superb_ and overall, the black text looks better than my old $6K Xerox c2424 Phaser Workgroup printer. It's hard to believe it is from an inkjet. For those worried about scanning, that functionality and the auto-duplex document feeder are also professionally done, mimicking the power of much higher end MFP's. The overall user experience, drivers, startup, and build of the printer are very well done. The 500 page paper cartridges is also a nice plus for a low-end mfp.
I was happy to see that on first turn-on, the printer automatically connects to the canon website and downloads the latest firmware.
On to the bad news:
- Print speed, when the drivers are tweaked for quality, is atrocious. You are looking at 50 seconds per double sided page.
- Multi platform is also likely to be an issue, as the printer seems to be extremely dependent on its drivers for 'assistance' so user experience will depend on how well the drivers are implemented on their platform. I suspect windows 8 users will be happy, mac users will find the printer acceptable, and linux users will be completely out of luck.
- It shakes quite a bit while running. You need to place it on a very stable/solid platform to get the best scanning and graphics printing results.
- I have yet to extensively test the price/page and photo printing, but I suspect that even with Canon's XL cartridges we're looking at 2-3x the price point of laser and I've seen some slight defects that make me believe that you won't want to use this printer for high end marketing brochures or where graphics/photo quality is critical.
Overall, I'll suggest that this printer was a great deal at the original $200 price point, that it's a fair deal for $300, and that buyers probably should look for a higher end printer from HP/Xerox if they can afford closer to a $500 price point. Certainly, this printer shouldn't be used where speed, multiplatform, or photo/brochure printing are important.
Update on 4/9/15: First paper jam, I suspect the printer has issues with heavyweight paper. Printing an scanning has otherwise been reliable. Tested out copying and it's not as full featured as the printing/scan functionality, but works OK for the home office.
Update on 5/19/15: First ink cartridge finally ran out. Black color as expected, looks like it lasted about 1200 pages. Color cartridges seem to be about half capacity. It appears that I'll be replacing the black cartridges every other month and the color every 3-4 months. I'm satisfied enough with that.
I have also noticed that large print jobs will result in the occasional pages shooting onto the ground. Just remember to check that the output tray is fully extended occasionally to avoid it. Unlike other printers, the printer requires the full extension of the output holder.
Update on 8/24/2015: Printer still going strong..no real issues with it. Almost never jams.
However, while the built-in scanner generally works well, it just isn't good enough for importing hand written essays and penciled academic notes that must be submitted to others for grading/review. To accurately scan these, one wants a scanner that can handle 1200 DPI, perform OCR, and automatically determine the best color level. Thus, we've had to supplement the MB5320 with a Fujitsu Smart Scan iX500.
Also, it appears that Cannon is increasing the price on Maxify ink cartridges. Amazon used to sell a full set of color cartridges with a XL black for only ~$60. Today, that same item has its lowest selling price on Amazon at $99. Not happy news.
Update on 04/01/2016: We started a100 page print job today unattended on heavier than normal office paper and somewhere near the end the output tray overfilled and jammed the feeder. The printer did not recover well. It requested that we cancel the print job, turn the printer off, disconnected the power cable, and then restart....however on restart, the printer made a strange noise and proceeded to give the same error and instructions in an infinite loop. I checked all the normal areas where jams occur and looked for any obvious damage. There is none, but the printer is really not happy and the only statement in the manual is that we should contact Canon support (looks like we may have to send it back). And, yes...the 1 year warranty expired on the original printer purchase expired two weeks ago..
Update on 4/18/2016: Despite being out of warranty, Canon provided a free replacement of the entire printer and even payed for shipping charges. It turns out that Canon uses cheap plastic gears inside the maxify printers to move the printhead, and it's possible for these plastic pieces to pop out of position when under significant stress...still, given that these printers are only $200 and include free ink and good warranty service, along with the option to upgrade to a higher level of support contract -- it's hard to complain at all.
I should admit up front that my requirements for this printer were not necessarily typical, as this is not my only printer. I already have a HP monochrome laser for printing high volume text docs (cheapest per page that I've found, plus I got the printer for free...). I also have a Xerox Phaser (solid ink printer) for doing color presentations. What I needed was a relatively cheap printer that my wife and kids could use for printing random stuff (mostly homework and an occasional photo) from anywhere in the house from any computer. I also needed multifunction (copy and scan mostly with occasional faxing) capability for my office, as I use this mostly as a duplex scanner and duplex printer/copier. Auto duplex functionality was critical for me and I also wanted 2 paper trays (1 for paper and 1 for envelopes, in my case) that could be setup individually for different uses. Print speed and print quality were important, but obviously, for the uses I list above, we are not looking at individual pixels, nor using it for high quality graphics or photos...I might do one or two photos a year and I do graphics on other printers, so this is mostly for text and homework. For my uses, the graphics and text quality is very good. I've already printed a few business letters on plain paper and the image/text/graphics quality is very professional looking and more than adequate for my use, even if I want to print some occasional business letters on it--which I just might!
A number of reviews have pointed to very slow print speeds. I have not really put this printer through any demanding paces yet, but after printing a few test pages from different computers over different network access points, I do not notice a level of slowness that would cause me any concern. I have not yet tried to print a graphics heavy, 2-sided document, so that could be a different story. It printed equalIy fast via USB and over our wireless network, so I am happy that the wifi setup and execution seems to be working well too. I do not notice any particular shaking or vibration during printing or other uses that another reviewer highlighted. It's not the quietest printer I've ever heard, but it's not noticeably loud nor shaky for me and it's no louder than my HP Laser nor my Xerox Phaser.
For me, the final proof will be in the long-run ink costs to run and maintain the printer. I had an old Canon MX7600 that just died that this Maxify MB5320 is replacing. The MX7600 was admittedly more tilted towards photo printing than small/home office/business use, but the ink costs were exorbitant to me and it seemed to just devour ink for constant head cleaning prior to printing each document... I looked extensively at reviews on Consumer Reports, CNET, Computer Shopper, PC Mag, Amazon, etc. I almost bought the Epson Workforce 4640, but was concerned about the number of out-of-box issues cited by so many reviewers and also the apparently poor Epson customer service. So far, so good on the Canon Maxify MB5320. I will try to write an update once I've used it for longer and have used the scan and copy features, particularly with the duplex auto-feed capabilities under scrutiny. If your use is similar to mine, I think you'll be happy with the new Maxify MB5320, particularly for the current $199 price. I definitely would not have paid anywhere near $399 (MSRP) for this machine, but at $199, it seems like a good value to me. I don't have anything negative to say about it. I consider it very good--and it does everything it says it does in my case, at least so far.
A major plus for me is in a matter of seconds you can change and register different paper in each tray. Letterhead in one, plain paper in another, or 8x10 photo in one. Many options and combinations. The plain paper photos come out better than from the other brand on photo paper. On photo paper pictures are outstanding. Speeds are great and it seems quieter than what it replaced which was a relatively new, dual tray printer costing about the same amount.
It scans double sided without intervention. I had 45 pages of double-sided paper to scan on. Placed it in the tray and it pulled page by page on, flipping each over to get the back side. Nice. I found time for another project. Also, prints double-sided by flipping each page over. Faster than brand X. Smaller footprint and less weight but better results. Great buy.
