The Canon Pixma MP550 is perfect for the small home office: it delivers excellent print quality, costs only 90 euros and shines with low page prices.
Canon Pixma MP550: Delivers a very good print image. The Canon multifunction device showed in the test a very good print and copy quality. Thanks to its pigmented black ink, it delivers very sharp letters and excellent coverage in both texts and images, with no discernible raster.
Print from USB stick
You can send photos from the PC to the printer via the USB interface, or transfer them directly to the printer and then to paper using a memory card or USB stick. However, you should take your time: printing A4 photos takes almost 4 minutes. However, the MP550 is faster in text printing: a five-page document takes about 48 seconds – a good value.
In addition, the Canon done his job quite cheap: One page in black and white costs around 2.6 cents, for an A4 photo you have to pay 1.36 euros. Thus, the Pixma MP550 as a multi-functional device with five separate ink tanks offers low follow-up costs. Power consumption is also very low at 4.7 watts during operation and 0.3 watts during standby.
The MP550 is operated via a rotary knob on the device. This will allow you to comfortably access all menus. For example, on the 2-inch display, you can select and edit photos for a print job.
A duplex unit does not offer the device. You can only print documents on both sides manually: Simply select the corresponding one in the driver and reinsert the sheets manually in the printer after the first print pass.
