Review of the Canon Pixma MG5750
If you are looking for a high quality wireless all-in-one printer from one of the best-known printer manufacturers in the world then you could consider the Canon PIXMA MG5750.
Canon have a well-earned reputation for designing quality printers that are innovative, reliable and efficient. Not only does the MG5750 deliver great print quality, it is ideal for both personal and home office use.
The MG5750 is one of a range of devices from the PIXMA series that includes the MG5751, MG5752, MG5753 and the MG6850. These printers are well known for their modern and practical design and are also reasonably priced. This means that you can print, scan and copy using a quality printer at a price point that you will find hard to argue with.
The first thing you notice about the MG5750 when you take it out of the box, is its classic design and sleek looks. Not only is this printer good value for money, it looks pretty impressive too.
The innovative engineers who work for Canon have also put a lot of thought into designing the controls on this printer in a way that makes them very easy to use, and their efforts have not been wasted. All of the vital controls have been located prominently on the front edge of the device. The control panel includes an easy to use 4-way control pad and there is small LED screen with three buttons below it, which allow you to scroll through the menus with ease.
You will be pleased that the MG5750 makes scanning, printing (single sided and duplex) and copying, (single sided and duplex) quick and easy to do. Furthermore, this model has a print speed which is faster than many more expensive models on the market. With automatic 2-sided printing, borderless printing and a very useful 100 sheet paper tray, you can be confident that this printer has better output quality that many, if not most, of its competitors.
Another great feature of the MG5750 is that you can print out your documents or photographs on another person’s PIXMA printer, if you both have Canon’s PIXMA Cloud Link Scan and Remote Print feature. So, the MG5750 makes printing and sharing photos and documents easier than ever before.
Another very useful feature is that the printer uses five different coloured ink cartridges. Longer lasting XL versions of these cartridges are also available. One bonus of this arrangement is that you only need to replace the empty colour when it runs out. Like so many printers at the budget end of the market, replacement cartridges can be relatively expensive but if you are willing to hunt around a little online there are many companies out there offering cheap ink cartridges for brands like Canon.
The dimensions of your printer are also very important. Canon recognised this the MG5750 is also reasonably sized (45.5 cm long, 36.9cm wide and 14.8cm high) and weighs in at a little under 6.5 kg. This means it will fit neatly on all but the smallest desk or table. Considering the device’s modest footprint, if you are struggling to find space for your printer it may even be possible locate it out of the way on a larger shelf or on top of a cupboard in your home or office.
