Canon MAXIFY MB5420 Series Printer Reviews– The Canon Maxify MB5420 offers business-worthy features at an affordable price. It’s expensive for a home printer, but it’s such a good deal compared to many other business models that we’ve given it Editor’s Choice as the best printer for small businesses.

The MB5420 comes with two paper trays, which can hold 500 sheets. Using the 50-sheet document feeder, the unit can simultaneously scan both sides of a two-sided document, which the duplexer can then make a two-sided print.

Canon Maxify MB5420 Design

The control panel is mounted at an angle. In the center is the 3.5-inch color touchscreen, which you use to make most of the menu choices. As with smartphone touchscreens, you can swipe up on the menu icons on the screen. Easy operation is five physical buttons: Home, back, stop, and two start buttons for black and white print/copy and color print/copy.

This model is neither giant nor very tiny. The tracks are roughly 18 inches wide by 18 inches wide. It’s nearly 14 inches tall, and you’ll need some vertical clearance to accommodate lifting the document feeder. The HP OfficeJet 7720 is roughly the same depth but 23 inches wide. The Brother MFC-J775DW is the smallest of the three, measuring 16.5 inches wide.

Each MB5420 paper tray can hold up to 250 sheets of plain paper. The top tray can be adjusted to hold up to 20 sheets of photo paper.

Canon Maxify MB5420 Print Speed

The Maxify MB5420 delivered impressive performance in our tests. It produced a five-page text document in 17.1 seconds, at 17.5 pages per minute. It’s significantly faster than the HP OfficeJet 7720 and the more expensive Epson WorkForce Pro WF-6590, both considerably slower, at just over 24 seconds (or 12.3 and 12.2 ppm, respectively).

The best news about print speeds is that the Maxify printer duplexer does little to reduce performance—the MB5420 prints two-sided text documents at 11.7 ppm. The HP OfficeJet 7720 was a bit slower at this task, hitting a rate of 10.2 ppm.

Our mixed color text and graphic documents print in about 1 minute, at six ppm. The HP OfficeJet 7720 is a few seconds faster (6.4 ppm), while the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-6590 is only half a second slower (5.9 ppm) than the Canon. Meanwhile, the expensive HP PageWide Pro 577dw, almost cutting Canon’s time in half, printed the same six pages in just 31.6 seconds.

Canon prints two-sided graphic documents at 4.1 ppm. The OfficeJet 7720 does it at 3.5 ppm slower.

The MB5420 prints glossy photos on letter-size paper in 2 minutes and 5 seconds. The HP OfficeJet 7720 renders the same glossy print in 1 minute and 41 seconds.

Canon Maxify MB5420 Copy and Scan Speed

The Maxify MB5420 creates black-and-white copies quickly, in just 7.6 seconds. The Epson WF-6590 was faster, at 6.2 seconds, while the HP 7720 was significantly slower, at 15.3 seconds. The best news here is that the MB5420 document feeder is fast. Instead of slowing down the copy speed, the feeder speeds it up, allowing the unit to make a black-and-white copy in 7.1 seconds.

When using the duplexer to make a two-sided copy of a single-sided original, the MB5420 documents five pages in 34.2 seconds, or at 8.8 ppm. The OfficeJet 7720 is slower, at 5.4 ppm.

Similarly, the MB5420 document feeder slows down color copying just a little. The MB5420 makes a color copy in 13.4 seconds, with the document placed on the glass. When an original is loaded through the document feeder, the MB5420 makes a copy in 13.9 seconds. The HP 7720 is slightly slower, at 16.8 seconds, while the Epson WF-6590 is twice as fast, creating a color copy in just 6.7 seconds.

The MB5420 renders a 600-dpi scan to the JPEG format in 31.7 seconds. The Epson WF-6590 is slightly faster, at 30.9 seconds of color. The MB5420 is relatively slow to render a 300 dpi black-and-white PDF in 9.4 seconds. The HP 7720 was significantly shorter in this test, spinning in 5.8 seconds.

The MB5420 can scan both sides of two-sided documents at the same time. Without this capability, two-sided copying documents would be tiring. You have to turn each page manually and copy one page at a time. The printer scans a 10-page (5-sheet) color document in 38.1 seconds using the document feeder.

Canon Maxify MB5420 Print quality

The Maxify MB5420 renders eye-catching text prints with dark, sharp letterforms almost laser-quality. That quality doesn’t diminish in double-sided prints. Graphics are printed with quick details, smooth textures, and bold dark colors. Colors look natural, and midtone transitions are smooth.

Similarly, a copy of a text document retains nearly all of the sharpness of the original, with the letterforms appearing only slightly lighter than the original. A graphic copy also looks very much like the original, with bold dark colors, accurate colors, and details that look almost as sharp as the original. Also, the smoothness of the texture is reproduced well.

Canon Maxify MB5420 Ink Cost and Yield

Using standard cartridges, ink costs above average, 3 cents for black and 13.5 cents for color. For comparison, the normal yield cost for the HP OfficeJet 7720 is 2.1 cents and 11.1 cents, respectively.

Canon Maxify MB5420 Settings and Software

The Maxify MB5420 is easy to set up. Once you’ve removed some of the tape used to protect the unit during shipping, the setup is intuitive, and the instructions are easy to follow. Setting up Wi-Fi is simple by using the WPS method, where you press the WPS button on your wireless router to initiate a connection without having to enter your network password. After that, the MB5420 starts in 5.6 seconds or so.

The printer comes with a setup CD-ROM with a print driver and software for scanning and sending faxes. It is also available for download from the product page on its website. In addition, there is PosterArtist Lite (Windows only) for graphic designing and networking tools.

Bottom Line

The affordable Maxify MB5420 has a lot to offer for a small office that needs a workhorse. This printer earned our Editors’ Choice for various reasons, including features such as a document feeder, two-sided copying/scanning, and a 500-sheet paper capacity—solid performance overall, especially for office tasks. Text printing is significantly faster than most other models, and black-and-white copying, for example, is twice as fast as the HP OfficeJet 7720. Plus, the image quality is top-notch. If you use high-yield ink cartridges, the cost of printing will equal the competition’s price.
