Canon Maxify MB5420: Can It Beat Epson And HP Models?

Canon launched another flagship model that offers a low-running cost, fine-quality result, and great paper handling. The new Maxify MB5420 Wireless Small Office All-in-One printer comes with a strong set of features as an all-in-one printer for home and small offices needs. With a market price value of $399.99, MB5420 does not seem to have enough qualities to outdo the performance of Epson’s Workforce Pro WF-5690. Nevertheless, Copier Lease Utah experts recommend that this Canon printer is still worth trying if output quality is of great importance.

What is Canon Maxify MB5420 Design?

Maxify MB5420 is all-business like, given its brushed black and cubic form-factor finish that weighs approximately 30 pounds and measures 18.5x15x13.5 inches. Depending on your preference, it doesn’t look like a consumer device with its dull or sleek design.

The Canon printer comes with a huge storage capacity for the paper since it is designed for heavy-duty printing. It features an automatic document feeder, including a support for single-pass duplexing and can handle up to 30 sheets. There are two paper drawers at the front-bottom that can store 250 sheets each to give the machine the ability to hold an entire ream of paper. In addition to that are additional drawers where different types of papers such as photo paper, heavy stock, plain paper, and letterhead can be stored separately.

The Canon Model Can Copy and Scan 

With a fast document feeder, the Maxify MB5420 can quickly provide a black and white copy in 7.6 seconds. But the best part is, instead of slowing down the copy speed, its feeder can speed it up, allowing the machine to produce a copy at a faster rate of 7.1 seconds.

On the other hand, the duplexer can be used to provide two-sided documents of a one-sided original copy, which the MB5420 can produce about five pages in just 34.2 seconds at 8.8 ppm. 

The Printing Mechanics 

The Maxify MB5420 gave an impressive performance when it rolled out a five-page text document in just 17.1 seconds at a rate of 17.5 pages per minute. This result was notably faster compared to the more expensive Epson Workforce Pro WF 6590 and the HP OfficeJet 7720. Moreover, the color graphics and mixed text document were printed in just 1 minute at a rate of approximately 6 ppm. As for the two-sided graphics document, the Canon machine printed at 4.1 ppm while the OfficeJet 7720 performed at a slower ppm of 3.5 ppm. However, the Maxify produced a glossy photo on a letter-size paper in about 2 minutes and 5 seconds, while the HP OfficeJet 7720 printed a similar glossy print in just 1 minute and 41 seconds.

In the final analysis, the Canon Maxify MB5420 Wireless Small Office All-In-One printer is an ideal choice for home or small office that need an inkjet all-in-one machine that can offer low running costs, a large paper capacity, and excellent output quality. Although it is incomparable to the excellent capacity of Epson WorkForce Pro WF-5690 for its feature set and heavy-duty printing, Maxify offers a better standard paper handling.
