Summary: This printer will not feed paper through the paper tray. It will only feed paper one at a time through the slot. The paper trapy stopped working within a week of when I purchased it. It is almost useless without a working paper feeding mechanism.
Summary: I have owned one for about a year and only successfully faxed something once. If I want something faxed it takes less time to go to Kinko's and fax it. I have spent enough faxing things to by a new fax machine.
Summary: This product is referred to as a "prototype" Well--that's all it should have been--it should have never gotten through the exit doors at Canon. I spoke with a Canon customer service rep. about this product and he said "That's what we get for having someone else design it for us.
Summary: I purchased the MF5550 to replace my old hp inkjet fax machine. Out of the box employees were complaining that they were having problems faxing. Talking to tech support they said that the MF5550 is not compatible with all fax machines.
Summary: This HUGE (compared to other printers in its class) printer has a very poor design when it comes to paper handling. The feeder tray comes in two parts that you hook together. The parts that connect two parts are all plastic (of course) and, if you are not careful, easily breakable.
Should not be in production -- major paper handling problems

Summary: I had been looking at multi-function devices (MFDs) for a little over one year. One of the things that delayed my purchase is that the all-in-one machines are usually a generation or two behind in technology.
