Small-size and light-weight both describe the Canon BJC-55 Bubble Jet printer. With the option to scan and copy and good color photo quality, the BJC-55 may find favor with buyers seeking portability. The rechargeable lithium ion battery makes the BJC-55 truly portable. Pull out the Canon BJC-55 ink cartridge and install the optional color image scanner cartridge, and you have a portable scanner.
At only 2.1 pounds, portability is a genuine benefit, and allows this printer to reside in a computer bag alongside a laptop or notebook without creating a burden. 720 x 360 dpi print quality provides excellent photo prints. The Canon BJC-55 ink cartridges consist of one color and one black and white ink tank. Photo printing requires an optional photo ink cartridge. Printing is quiet because the Canon BJC-55 Bubble Jet cartridges produce only 43 decibels of noise.
A power lock switch is a nice feature of the BJC-55, keeping it from accidentally turning on while in transit. It also comes with a handy spare ink cartridge holder and dual-voltage power supply for international travel. Connection is through a USB port to any compatible Mac or a PC using Windows 95/98 or Windows CE. The BJC-55 comes with a CD ROM containing an electronic user's manual and scanner and printer drivers.
Critics have found some fault with the Canon BJC-55 Bubble Jet printer. Black text could print blacker according to some reviewers. A document feeder needs to be purchased as an extra, although it is a real necessity when printing any volume of pages.
For the executive or salesperson on the go, the Canon BJC-55 is a handy, lightweight companion to a netbook or notebook. It prints better than Canon's BJC-85 unit, offering both document and photo printing with good results. Extra light weight and a small size will endear it to business travelers.
