Canon PIXMA iX6550

 

An A3+ printer which doesn't cost the earth to buy and produces high quality images at good print speeds, particularly when printing photos.

Comparatively quick photo print, Telescopic paper supports for small footprint, 9,600dpi max resolution

No memory card slots or PictBridge, No LCD display, No wireless connection

Canon PIXMA iX6550 review

 

Canon's PIXMA iX6550 inkjet printer doesn't have a scanner, copier, automatic document feeder, auto-duplex or any other complicated circuitry to confuse you — all it does is print documents and photos from the tiny 6x4in size all the way to A3+. It's...

Canon's iX6550 is a good general-purpose A3 printer for any office or home user who just needs reasonable print quality and doesn't mind the restriction of USB-only connectivity.

Canon Pixma iX6550

 

The iX6550 isn't awash with features, but those after a somewhat compact A3 printer should find it good value.

Up to A3 printing ; Very compact for an A3 printer ; Fair print speeds, especially for A3 ; Good print quality

USB cable not supplied ; No other networking options ; Confusing page yield quotes make office economising difficult ; Plastic construction feels cheap

The only real market for an A3 printer should be folks who regularly need to print at up to A3 size. For anyone else a number of multifunction printers, including several of Canon's own would serve their purposes better, with perhaps a trip to the...
