Basically the same machine (both based on Singer 111) but w/o having seen them / tested them / knowing details like motor and accessories I´d choose the one with reverse or if both have reverse I personally would choose the JUKI.

juki lu562 or consew 226?

Both the Juki LU562 and Consew 226 have reverse. The Juki LU562 it is a compound feed but has a small " G" bobbin whereas the Juki LU 563 would have the larger "M" bobbin. The Consew 226 if it isn't badged as "226R" is the an older version before they started to indicate that the machine had reverse. If the Consew doesn't have reverse it would be a Consew 225.

If both are in the same condition I would always choose a Juki over a clone as it will be easier to get parts and to resell later on.

$550 each

Decent price, $550 ( ~$430 USD). Any photo's as someone may spot something to ask about with the machines.

Do you have reason to think the $550 is Canadian dollars?  He doesn't list his location in his profile.  So it's either $430 US if his $550 is Canadian, or $700 Cdn othewise.  :)

I might have gotten OP confused with someone else's location. But the used price in US dollars for the Consew falls in roughly the 30 percent mark of a new comparable machine. While the Juki is running at about 25 percent of a new comparable machine.

I ended up getting the juki, it has a green table with a servo motor…  probably paid a little more than its worth. But it works fine.
