Epson LQ-550 Printer Review

Expert review of the Epson LQ-550 printer

Our Verdict:

The Epson LQ-550 is a dot matrix printer that can also handle envelopes aside from single and continuous paper. This unit uses 24 pins and a black cartridge ribbon. Print head life is very long and this reliable printer can deliver crisp output of texts and graphics. The Epson LQ-550 ribbon printer is also capable of handling copies, one original along with two copies. This dot matrix printer was produced in 1989 and is very outdated.


This printer weighs 15 lbs and measures only 5.5 x 15.3 x 12.6 inches. It has a printhead life of 2 million strokes. Unlike its predecessor, the Epson LQ-550 impact printer comes with a micro feed, paper parking, and push tractor. Print speed with a pitch of 12 is 180 characters per second for draft and 60 characters per second for letter quality. There is a parallel port.


The Epson LQ-550 24-pin dot-matrix printer is favoured by users for its reliability; it can continuously print and deliver reasonable quality output. The LQ550 forms printer is very easy to use and set up is uncomplicated. Replacing printer ink is cheap and easy thanks to the black Epson LQ550 fabric ribbon which works reliably in the machine to print as many as 2 million characters.


It may be hard to find replacement parts and consumables for the Epson LQ-550 in local shops. This old unit has already been surpassed by inkjet and laser models in terms of resolution and print speed. The Epson LQ 550 dot-matrix printer does not work on new operating systems and does not offer modern connectivity options like a USB.
