Canon ImageRUNNER ADVANCE C5535, C5540, C5550 and C5560 range review
With Condor in its 30th year, we’d like to think we know a thing or two about office printers / photocopiers, so we thought we’d share our thoughts on Canon’s new offerings with you. As the big sibling of the C3500 series, it’s no surprise that the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series has a sleek design that wouldn’t look out of place in an Apple store. It comes in 5 different flavours, ranging from 35 pages to a whopping 60 pages per minute. It also has a single pass reader which can scan two sides of a page at once producing up to 160 images per minute – wow!
This is a series that consistently delivers outstanding colour quantity, even at the very large volumes it has the capacity for, making it the perfect machine for demanding office environments. In fact, Buyers Lab have named it their line of the year, describing it as the most reliable machine EVER tested! Need we say more?
We love the advanced personalisation that enables a unique, personal experience tailored to meet each user’s workflow needs. For example, on authenticating at the machine you will see your own personalised screen with handy features such as scan to my email or scan to my file – these personal touches help to make for an enjoyable user experience of ease. This user authentication not only provides a personalised touch, but also allows for high security; you have the ability to control who has access to the device, and can therefore prevent unauthorised usage and distribution of sensitive information.
One of our favourite features has to be the staple-less eco stapler; a very innovative touch which makes for a unique user experience whilst also allowing you to do your bit for the environment – what’s not to like?
Like the Image runner C35xx range there are a multitude of features to help you reduce wastage and control costs. The mailboxes are very quick and smooth to use and user activity tracking provides visibility of print behaviours. It is simple to apply policies and restrict usage (normally of colour) by user and function.
I could write reams about the opportunities for streamlining scanning and printing and the possibilities for integration that the Imagerunner 55xx offers. Most competitor models will offer similar (if slightly more clunky) versions. What makes this range stand out is it’s build quality and reliability. Our engineers are a hard bunch to impress but they love this machine and that’s about as good a recommendation as you could find.
