Canon Pixma MG3550 Driver Download. The proposal Canon is enticing. For fifty euros, here is a printer 3-in-1 (print, copy and scan), Wi-Fi with automatic duplexing and versatile, is as good at the texts for the pictures! It is intended primarily for individuals looking for an affordable and basic model. Canon actually rode his model for years. This small MG3550 is a clone of the previous MG3250, itself derived from the MG3150. The manufacturer has merely accelerated a little engine, which increases to 10 ppm black, but remains at 6 ppm color. Above the range, there is the MG4250, who earns a color display to simplify the use of the printer without going through a computer (printer messages when a cartridge runs out, there are also clearly displayed). And one more notch prices above comes the star of the range, the MG5550, which adopts this time separate cartridges instead of 2-piece present on most economic models. Interest separate cartridges especially true for consumers of a single color, used for regular logo printing for example, or for those wishing frequently print photos with great heaven. The ink charging system and paper forward (FastFront) is handy and quite pretty. Nevertheless, we regret the appearance of some plastics, too fragile and that does not really inspire confidence.

The entry-level position necessarily imply some concessions. However, keep in mind the two major advantages of this printer: the MG3550 is one of the cheapest in the range of Canon and is particularly compact (44.9 x 30.4 x 15.2 cm to 5 kg). This model is designed for those who wish to store their printer on a shelf. The input and output of paper (100 sheets at reduced capacity) as well as access to the cartridges are made from the front. Equipment level, there is Wi-Fi and duplex, but no fax, no card reader or automatic loading of the leaves. Options that require climbing a little higher in the range of Canon. The touch control panel and the screen does not make either of the proposed functions.

Note however the democratization of remote printing, since MG3550 comes with AirPrint solution that enables printing from a tablet or smartphone. Not surprisingly, the MG3550 is a slow model, especially in photo mode. She is on a par with much more expensive when MG5550 text is printed in black and white and is just behind with 9 color pages per minute (11 ppm for the MG5550).
As expected, the print speed does not break records. Even so verdict: time readings are comparable to other entry-level models. 8 ppm color and 7 ppm in black and white, respectively, against 5 ppm in color and 9.2 ppm black advertised in the data sheet. These values are the opposite of those of the Epson Stylus SX420W, which delivers 4 ppm color and 8 ppm in black and white. At Canon, drying black ink is always slower. Photo rates are found in much faster than the Epson Stylus SX420W. To print an A4 photo, Canon puts 2 min 44 s against 4 min for Stylus. In 10 x 15 cm, Canon keeps the advantage with 1 min 5 sec 1 min 24 s against Epson.

Print quality is perfectly comparable to that of the MG3150 because the 2-piece cartridges are the same. The rendering of office printing is good, as always with Canon. The main shortcoming identified on graphics, as evidenced by the picture below, is in the size of the drops seen in solid colors. All is revealed pretty average, the letters are visible, the color gradient is observed, however, the characters of the legend on yellow drool and give a rough appearance to the chart. Same verdict for photos. The drops are visible place and the colors are enough saturated. A bias Canon in order to give the pictures a glowing appearance. The result is quite okay for occasional photos, sometimes better than with desktop printers more expensive.

The copies can be launched directly from a button on the printer cover (white button for monochrome and green for the color). You have to wait 20 seconds to print a black and white copy and 47 s for color, double time compared to a professional printer, but again, it's not the same price or the same position as those of the MG3150. The quality of reproduction is suitable for text only. The scanning mode is fast since it takes 10 seconds for a photo 10 x 15 cm and 13 s for an A4 document. However, it is mandatory to go through the computer to perform the scan in the absence of the control panel. The quality obtained is weak and this function will be to book mainly text. This printer consumes less than one watt in standby and 15 watts when. These are among the lowest values observed on the tested printers. Silent, it does not exceed 48 dB (A). The cartridges are monobloc: one for black and one for all colors. There are two formats cartridges (standard and high capacity). As always, the cost per page of the XL is more interesting: 8.8 cents here. This is slightly below the average cost per page calculated over several inkjet printers (9.3 cents) and well below the 21.2 cents per page calculated with standard cartridges. Furthermore, the maintenance will be reduced by using larger formats. So we autonomies ISO 600 and 400 copies, respectively, black and color. If the first sheet takes time to print after tensioning, it will not be long 18 seconds from standby or 10 seconds to warm. As such, we can say that this printer is responsive. This 3-in-1 multifunction, Wi-Fi and duplex is quite identical to the previous model (the Pixma MG3150) software solution excepted. It does not offer complete equipment or timeliness but may be great as a side printer. The software suite intended to make a difference with the old model has not convinced us. Our advice: go for the MG3150, cheaper because older.
