The HP Officejet G55 all in one printer (C6736A) was a great multipurpose printer released by HP in late 1999. It was an immediate hit with home office users as the combined scanner, printer, fax and copier meant less space was taken up by not having multiple devices cluttering the office… Now you could have all your requirements met in a single multipurpose device.

Features that made it popular were: a max printing speed up to 12.0 ppm (mono) / up to 10.0 ppm (color), 8.0 MB of memory, an optical resolution of 600 x 3600 dpi and it could handle paper up to 200.0 g/m2

Originally the G55 came with printer drivers for Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Apple Mac OS 9.1. Whilst long since discontinued HP is still claiming driver support up to Windows 8 (both 32 and 64 bit) read here.

The G55 was such a popular model that other similar printers were released by HP
