I bought a MG5350 after my last three printers (all Canon) served me well.
I was attracted by the wi-fi feature of this one, meaning the printer could be placed anywhere with no lead limiting it's placement. It has performed brilliantly, with superb quality photo printing in both colour and black and white. In fact, based on my experience with the MG5350 I bought a second one, with both my laptop and my desktop able to print from either printer.
The two paper trays are a boon, meaning I can keep plain paper in the lower cassette, saving the rear feeder for photo paper.
I have marked down the overall rating for two reasons - ink capacity (the actual quantity of ink in each cartridge) is much less than my previous Canons, even though they are more expensive, plus the system wastes ink by performing an unnecessary cleaning cycle every time it is switched on - this leaves one with the dilemma, do I leave it switched on and waste electricity or switch it off and waste ink. This can of course, be overcome to a certain extent by using after market ink cartridges.
One other small gripe is that it's not always possible to know which feeder the printer is going to draw paper from, i.e. if printing a cd or case insert label which is A4, and the quality is required to be the highest, does one use the plain paper or the photo paper feeder.
All in all, a very good printer, let down a little by penny-pinching by Canon with the ink, and slightly too clever paper selection.
Pros: superb quality printing very quiet.
Cons: expensive ink
