Canon PIXMA MP550 inkjet multifunction printer


Canon's mid-range PIXMA office and photo printer handles both text and full-colour images well

Good quality photo prints, fast image scanning

Canon's PIXMA MP550 is a well-designed inkjet multifunction printer with only a few flaws. The button layout can be confusing and you might find the small screen a little frustrating, but it is a competent scanner and printer.

Inexpensive ; Excellent print quality and detail

No inbuilt wireless ; Flimsy build

Even considering this, it was a super result, and bearing in mind the all-rounder abilities of the MP550 — it is a home office device, after all — the printer certainly made an impression (no pun intended).

Canon Pixma MP550


Simple to use even for someone who is not very computer literate

It is slow to start up
