Canon imageClass D550


The Canon imageClass D550 delivers fast speed, most of the MFP features you're likely to need in a personal mono laser MFP, and some extras including a built-in duplexer.

Fast. Prints, scans, and copies. Duplex (two-sided) printing. Duplexing automatic document feeder.

No network connection. No fax. Output quality, though suitable for most business use, is a touch below par across the board.

Canon imageClass D550 Review,Price In India


The Canon imageClass D550 comes with the duplexing ADF which is useful for two sided documents. The print duplexer is another feature which is of significant use.

Top value in its class


It was a good buy at $262 and a bargain at 199. Prints very fast, double sided hardly slows it. Cost of toner is the only negative forcing one to break warranty to buy third party toner.

I overall like it.


I especially like the ability to copy both sides of the document automatically using the sheet feeder. This printer has performed very well. We printed close to 6,000 documents in the first year of use. I do not like how Canon has combined the Drum and...

Save your money!


The device isn't even a year old yet, and things get stuck in the feeder all the time. Got warranty to replace the feeder parts, and it still does it!! Save your money!!

Quality of Life


I purchased the D550 for our small business office where there are three people. After being frustrated by a constant ink cartridge demand from our three or four printers, I purchased the D550. The first day after it arrived was a "set up" day and...
