Product Description

Amazon.com

The Canon MultiPASS MP C555 multifunction peripheral is everything you could possibly want. It's a color Bubble Jet printer, fax machine, copier, and scanner. With all these functions the C555 is a multitalented machine that will save you space and money.

Well designed, and stylish to boot, the C555 plugs into any parallel or USB and is compatible with either a PC or Macintosh. It's fast and efficient so you can send or receive faxes at 14.4 Kbps--equivalent to 6 seconds per page. You can store up to 42 pages in memory and load up to 20 pages in the automatic document feeder.

Photo-quality color printing comes to you at 720 x 360 dpi resolution. Print reports and promotional materials that look professional and slick. Scan color photos, artwork, and text at 600 dpi (300 dpi optical) with the push of a button. You can send documents to your e-mail or OCR (optical character recognition) application. You can even use your fax or copy function without your computer! And with easy drop-in ink cartridges (BC-20), changing your ink is a cinch.

The C555 comes with special software tools. These will help you enhance or manipulate photos, integrate scanned text into word processing documents, and create terrific Web pages. In fact, with the C555 you receive a free business Web site. This machine weighs 11.2 pounds and measures 14.4 by 13.4 by 10.9 inches and comes with a one-year limited warranty. --Linda Anderson

Verified Purchase
I'm tempted to give this baby 5 stars, primarily because it exceeds expectations. First of all, it's practically half the price of any other manufacturer's competing model as well as half the size and weight. Secondly, the print quality should satisfy all but the most demanding tastes--even the color is more brilliant and and less grainy than what I'm getting from an Epson 740 at fast speed. The only drawback I've discovered so far with the Canon is the slowness, especially when printing color. If this were my only printer, I'd probably lose patience with the 2 ppm speed. And (...) the machine does not appear to be rugged enough to stand up to constant, heavy use. I suspect that few printers can match the "indestructibility" of an HP.
The Canon line of multifunction printers presents quite a challenge to the consumer trying to sort them out. The current models are the models ending in 5--the C545, C555, and C755. The "C" models ending in 0 are no longer being manufactured. The "F" flatbed models are the newest machines. The C755 is incompatible with Mac platforms, and I've had better success matching the C555 with my iMac than the C545, which uses a USB conversion device in the cable rather than in the machine itself. Windows users, on the other hand, will probably find the C755, with its faster printing, sharper resolution and steep discount from retail, the better value. The F models are faster and sharper yet, but at a significantly higher cost.
If you're purchasing a Multipass as a 2nd machine, or planning to use it sparingly, the C555 could still be the best bet, especially given its light weight and compact dimensions.

I wanted to find a place to trash this product and after some months I have finally found it. Don't buy this piece of poorly designed, cheap, pathetic excuse for a (. . .)device.
First of all I got this thing because I did not want to spend a lot and for (. . .)it seemed a very good deal. Two mistakes: 1. You get what you pay for (. . .) and 2. Don't judge a printer from the box cover.
First of all the included driver did not work with Win2k, so they FORCE U 2 DOWNLOAD A 42MEG DRIVER!!!! DAH! I live outside of the US, we don't have T1s like rabbits running around!
The printer did not work with USB! The drivers would not even install without a paralell printer cable! Legacy free systems are out of the picture!
When you do get the thing going, the driver is so heavy it takes an eternity to load on every logon! Then there is that burdersome icon flashing when the thing is not connected. CANON: There are some of us with laptops! We don't have the thing hooked up all the time! And you get all this anoying messages everytime the thing decides to fart. It is really that anoying.
Finally, the quality is horrendous. I printed a template of my company stationary letter and I could not send it. The blue was purple and it looked like I sprayed the ink on the paper! I really could not believe I had got this piece of trash. And I have consumed at least 3 cartridges in two months with almost no output! I compared the ink consumption to a HP k60 I have on another office, and the HP so far has not required change despite the fact that I works at least 5 times more!
Don't buy this printer from it looks. And from my experience, don't buy it at all!

Three days after installing I find that it will copy quite well tho the color is not spectacular. Trying to get it to print from PC screen is a severe problem. When it works, and that has been about 25% of the time the quality is very good and the fact that it is slow doesn't bother me. Downloading suggested drivers to cure a problem where it refuses to print because of errors has not helped. If I was more courageous I'd return it for credit but will probably keep it as a copying device.

This product has serious software issues, and Canon does not have any support for troubleshooting. I've had numerousproblems with this product. My Win2K recently crashed horribly, and a computer technician told me it was likely to due this printer's software. The printer/fax itself is good but the software that "drives" the printer is frought with problems.
An important note to Windows 2000 users: YOU CANNOT REMOVE THE SOFTWARE (DRIVER) ONCE YOU'VE INSTALLED IT!!! Trust me, the Windows "Add/Remove Programs" cannot remove Canon's program as it should -- the Canon files are constantly "in use" and thus cannot be deleted. The only way to get rid of it is to wipe out your hard drive and start over with a new Windows O/S.
A friend reinforced my poor perception of Canon's software, as he told me the software for his Canon digital camera nearly ruined his computer. PLEASE, do yourself a favor and buy another brand - I will myself. Don't risk your operating system with Canon's poor software.

I have tried and tried for the pass few weeks to get my c555 to perform the advertised functions i,e,. print/fax and scan properly, with out going thru a long drawn out process. I have it set up as sugested by the set up option. But each time i turned on my computerit does connect and request the c555 status bar. I have yet to print from my cpu as it should. one fax from Canon service automation department. Tried to call to get help as it is rquested when having trouble getting it to work right. As of yet have not received the technical support promised thru Canon advertisement and registry program.
