Conclusion
The Pixma MG5450 is practically a clone of the MG5350—the only thing that's changed is the look. It's just as fast and prints in just as good quality, but it also confirms our suspicions that this supposedly new line of printers adds nothing new to last year's models.
The Pixma MG5350 is a clone of the MG6150 but slower and without the grey cartridge. This model is nevertheless fast enough and gives good quality but confirms us in the idea that the so-called new range offers nothing over the old generation.
