The Canon imageCLASS LBP5500 is a compact laser printer designed for the home user or a micro office with very light-duty printing needs. It has a maximum speed of 19 pages per minute, but a quick first page out time of only 8 seconds or less. The single-cartridge system for Canon LBP5500 printer toner supplies is also very convenient, with only one consumable to replace instead of a separate drum.
The compact design of the LBP5500 is one of its most impressive attributes, given that it is still a very powerful machine. It measures just 7.8x14.2x9 inches, and weighs just 12 pounds, even with the imageCLASS LBP5500 toner supplies in place. The maximum print resolution is 600x600 dpi, but with enhancement technology, it can approximate a 2400x600 dpi output quality.
Except in the case of a very tiny office, the LBP5500 will be best suited for personal use, as it includes only a single USB port for connecting to a PC directly. Networking is not included, and buyers will have to upgrade to a more full-featured model for this luxury. It also holds only 150 sheets in its paper tray, which is fairly anemic by most standards. All of this serves to illustrate its intended use as a personal machine.
Replacement toners are quite easy to install from the convenient access panel, and since Canon LBP5500 toner cartridges also include the drum unit, there are no other consumables to replace. Buyers who want to bargain shop will be glad to know that remanufactured imageCLASS LBP5500 toner cartridges are available from many third-party sellers at a cost much lower than OEM supplies.
The LBP5500 is very limited when it comes to capacity and speed, but it is an excellent fit for individual use. Consumers that want networking capabilities will need to look elsewhere, but this model's low upfront price and inexpensive Canon LBP5500 toner are very appealing.
