The Canon PIXMA MG5522 is an all-in-one inkjet printer with a focus on photo quality. It can scan, copy, and print, though it lacks faxing. It includes wireless networking for easier sharing, and it can print up to 12.2 images per minute. Individual colors of Canon MG5522 printer ink help to reduce waste and keep costs down.
The MG5522 offers a wide variety of ways to connect and print. It includes a USB port for a standard connection to a PC, and Wi-Fi support for connecting to a wireless network. Beyond that, it also includes support for mobile printing from smartphones and tablets, using Apple's AirPrint and Google Cloud Print standards. It also supports Canon's Cloud Link Printing, which works with cloud services like Picasa to pull photos and documents for printing.
The input paper capacity of the MG5522 may leave a bit to be desired, at only 100 sheets. It also lacks an automatic document feeder, though the flatbed scanner may be enough for many home users. Scanning documents and sending them as email attachments is a simple process, and using digital documents in general can help cut down on PIXMA MG5522 printer ink costs.
The unit uses 5 individual Canon MG5522 ink cartridges, with the option for a gray supply when printing in black and white. The standard PIXMA MG5522 ink cartridges are good for around 300 pages each, but the "XL" Canon MG5522 ink supplies offer around twice the output at an affordable price. This makes them the better choice for cost-effective printing.
The MG5522 inkjet printer can handle a lot of tasks well, but lack of a document feeder could be an issue for those who do a lot of scanning or copying. Its cloud and mobile printing features make it worth a look, and its low price and affordable supplies make it a solid value for home users.
