Canon GP555 Printer Review
A monochrome machine such as the Canon GP555 laser printer is beneficial for an office that does exclusively text documents, and will be the quickest and most affordable option. This all-in-one device can also handle the scanning and copying for an office, as well as operating as a shared network printer.

The GP555 can generate an average output rate of 55 pages per minute, in part because it uses only black Canon GP555 toner.

Speed is important, but so is quality when it comes to office equipment. The Canon GP555 toner can produce a maximum resolution of 2400x1600 dpi, which will produce excellent text and graphics documents.

Also, the Canon GP555 toner cartridges can yield an unbelievable 99,000 pages before expiring. This will limit the amount of times replacements will be needed, keeping lifetime costs low.
Users have the option of connecting a single computer through the USB port, but there is also an ethernet interface for building a network in an office, allowing multiple people to share the GP555. The remote management tools included with the unit help administrators monitor and management functions over the network. The Webtools also allow users to monitor the status of jobs as well. Numerous finishing options can be added in offices that need automatic collating and stapling.
