Pros: reliable, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
Cons: expensive cartridges
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 the Toner together, which makes for an expensive purchase. I do appreciate the posting of the Linux drivers on this website. Without the Linux drivers this printer would be pretty useless to me and I would have sold it by now and never bought another Canon. Please keep updating the Canon Linux drivers as they are getting better and better with each release.

Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
Have used this printer for over a year and it has worked perfectly in this time period. Use it for printing from Excel, Word, E-mails, etc. as well as scanning photos and B/W documents. Have never had a printer failure or any other problem. Really love the very quick start-up speed from sleep mode and fast printing. The only downside to this printer is that it is not wireless so it has to have a wired connection to the computer. Other than that, I love it.

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!!

Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, durable, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
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 getting used to it day. The second day the legal assistant thanked me for buying it as it made her job easier. I would recommend this to small business owners. The D550 could probably handle the demands of an office of 5 to 10 with ease. The only feature I would have liked that it does not have is wireless capability.

This is the most frustrating equipment i have ever owned. When trying to scan a stack of 15 papers it can sometimes take up to 15 minutes. This machine jams constantly or it will feed thru several papers at one time. Also sometimes it scans too light. Very, very disappointed in this product. Definately do not recommend unless you don't need the scanning feature.

Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
This printer was purchased to replace a much larger, outmoded printer which we have relied on for years. The Canon yields far superior copies, looks better, works better and does not jam. In addition, the toner cartridges are readily available and are reasonably priced. It also looks good. I would recommend this printer to those looking to do business printing in a moderate use environment.

This product certainly works as advertised! It is a great value for the price; most especially with its auto-duplexing feature and its ability to copy 2-sided to 2-sided. Installation was smooth and hassle free for my Win-7 machines.
Its hassle free operations is in contrast to a major competitor whose scanner and laser printer I used to own; but when they failed to provided updated drivers, I had to discard when I installed Win-7--not nice.
