Copy, print and scan quality all meet my high standards. A copy is hard to distinguish from the page it is copied from. Text is crisp and easy to read, and the duplex (double-sided) printing is a boon. Borderless photos are crisp and clear with good color saturation and accurate tonality. Scan detail is superb and the reproduction very accurate. The lower paper cassette and rear feed both hold plenty of paper. In fact, I am hard pressed to find anything not to like about this all-in-one. Sure, the cost to replace all of the ink cartridges (with Canon approved versions) is more than half the cost of the printer, but that is sadly the norm the days. I can't speak to it's longevity or how it will operate over time, but if it is anything like the IP3000, then I am hopeful.
For personal use or a small home office that wants a compact all-in-one that copies, prints and scans quickly and with quality, then the Cannon PIXMA MG5220 should be on your short list.
EDIT(01/12/2011): After about 3 months of use, and printing a lot of photos for the holidays, the colored inks that came with the printer ran out. The blacks are still going strong, though it won't print without the colored ones being replaced (even B&W).
EDIT(01/31/2011): I just wanted to clarify that while the colors are low, only one needed immediate replacing. The rest are hanging in there and the black ink levels still appear good.
I bought this printer because my one-year old HP quit printing photos after I upgraded to Mac OS X Snow Leopard. I decided to give Canon a try. I will never buy another HP again. I liked their print quality, but they "abandon" you with driver support way too fast. Plus this Canon is easily 4x faster. And for $149, well what is there to complain about? I cannot comment on the ink usage, since I just got it, but I will update this review after a couple of months use.
Bye, bye HP, hello Canon!
11/10/2010. Update: Thanks to S. Hans I just found out that the printer allow you to switch your printing options to print from the first or last page. You can even print 2 to 4 pages in one. Further, I will like to add that the second cartridge that I had to replace, the yellow (about $13), was after about 150 printed pages on both sides, plus, about 50 in one side only.
Turning to the internet for clues, I was stunned to learn this is a well-known problem in their firmware, that Canon has done little about it, and that there's even been talk of a class action lawsuit. There is not many times I've felt misled and ripped off by a prestigious brand, but this is certainly one of them; this misadventure with Canon has cost me a lot of money. Further, there has been little coverage of the problem by so-called expert reviewers, but you can get the scoop by searching "U052 printhead error" and the like.
