Canon MAXIFY MB5155 Review: Is It Worth It?

Not too long ago we reviewed the Canon MAXIFY MB5155 predecessor, the MB2155. Funnily enough, we haven’t done any for the successor. So, as an attempt to rectify that, here is the Canon Maxify MB5155 review in which we’ll see whether it’s worth your bucks or not.

Canon MAXIFY MB5155 doesn’t change a lot when it comes to design compared to the MB2155. It looks exactly like its predecessor and is quite large, so if you’ve already read the review on that product or if you’ve used it before, that’s what exactly you’ll get.

It’s fair to mention though in this Canon MAXIFY MB5155 review that the MB5155 is one kilogram heavier than the MB2155. 

Printing Quality

As expected of Canon, the printing quality on the MAXIFY MB5155 is excellent. Pages come out nice and crisp, whether it’s colored, or black-and-white. It’s not as detailed as photo-grade printers such as the Expression line-up of course, but for $150 or so, it’s pretty darn good.

Scan Quality

Canon have always been a strong contender when it comes to imaging quality, whether it’s scanning, printing, or taking pictures. And as expected the MB5155 doesn’t disappoint in this Canon MAXIFY MB5155 review.

OCR is excellent and can even read through some of the tiniest fonts you can hand it, and output from scan is also excellent. It’s a bit on the slower side when scanning, more so than average, and scanning to searchable PDF is even slower than that.

But as long as you’re not doing high-volume scanning on your day-to-day work, you won’t really notice it too much.


Being in the MAXIFY lineup, the MB5155 expectedly has a lot of features to make your office work more convenient. In this product, you’ll get auto duplexing for your printing, scanning, and even copying needs.

And of course, it has quite the robust wireless connectivity. You can use AirPrint or Google Cloud Print, or even the CANON PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app from your phone.

All in all, the MB5155 is quite robust when it comes to features, especially the mobile companion app. 

Print Economy

Despite being cheap to buy with its initial cost, the MB5155 is not an expensive machine to run either. Its inks last for a long time and is quite cheap to refill, making the MFP one of the best choices if you don’t want to spend too much on ink cartridges or toners for your printer.

So, what’s the verdict for this Canon MAXIFY MB5155 review then?

Just like its predecessor, the MB2155, the MB5155 is a solid printer. It’s an upgrade from the MB2155 in the sense that’s a bit after than it, but of course compared to other printer lineups, it falls short in speed.

But that’s not to say that this is a bad printer. If anything, it’s a very good printer that brings you all the excellences that Canon is known for their product, all in one neat package.

So, if you’re in a need of an MFP, consider looking at the MAXIFY MB5155. The only reason we can think of in this Canon MAXIFY MB5155 review to not recommend this is if you already own an MB2155 because again, the upgrade isn’t as significant to warrant replacing the MB2155.
