Canon has produced the imageClass MF6550 to improve the productivity and cost effectiveness of the modern office. This single machine combines the features of a monochrome laser printer, color scanner and digital copier along with a fax machine into one attractive package.

A 500 sheet paper tray provides printing stock for the MF6550. This tray holds a full ream of paper. The automatic document feeder will hold 50 originals and can reproduce them in full duplex mode.

The MF6550 is a machine that produces high quality documents in any mode. The MF6550 is at home in Windows, Linux or Mac environments. This machine is up to any task asked of it and provides a dependable output that has unlimited versatility in the office.

The main paper tray holds 500 sheets (a full ream of paper). This capacity allows for simple loading and less down time thus increasing productivity. A multi purpose tray that has the capacity for 100 sheets is included.

This tray can hold envelopes, transparencies, cards and labels. A copious paper tray is a necessity for the MF6550 since it prints at the rate of 23ppm. This 23ppm is accomplished with a print resolution of 1200 X 600 dpi.

One of the most unique features of the MF6550 is its duplex scanner. Duplex scanning means that both sides of a document can be scanned without having to manually flip the document over. Once the document is placed either onto the platen itself or into the document feeder and duplex scanning is selected, both sides of the document(s) are scanned and either printed or faxed out.

Fax transmission is accomplished through a Super 3G (33.6bps) modem. The speed of this modem substantially reduces the time required to both send and receive fax documents. Large incoming documents are easily handled by the MF6550. The memory for incoming documents will handle 256 pages. Lack of memory is not something that the MF6550 lacks for.

While some manufacturers supply a starter toner cartridge with their laser printers Canon does not with the MF6550. The Cartridge 106 that is supplied with this machine has the toner capacity for 5000 pages. The toner cartridge that you receive with the machine is same as the toner cartridge that you will replace it with when it exhausts its supply.

The color scanner function of the MF6550 provides images in the 9600 X 9600 format. These images can be both managed and stored using software included with the MF6550.

This software, NewSoft®Presto Page Manager along with ScanSoft®' OmniPage® provides a complete software suite that allows the owner to manage and store images. The ScanSoft®, OmniPage® software allows documents to be transferred to editable text which eliminates the need for retyping the document to enable changes.

Most offices need a printer/copier/scanner/fax machine. There is, in all likelihood no machine that will fulfill these functions as well as the Canon MF6550. The Canon ImageClass MF6550 Toner will supply 5,000 printed pages at 5% coverage. This eliminates the need to purchase more Canon toner. The busy office needs a multifunction machine that can operate without constant supervision. The MF6550 and toner will fulfill that need.
