Canon Color ImageCLASS MF-8350Cdn


The Canon Color ImageClass MF8350Cdn color laser multifunction printer offers a tempting purchase price ($699 as of 12/09/2009) and some good features. Like most low-cost machines we've tested, however, it has trade-offs--including pricey black toner...

Automatic duplexer ; Low purchase price

Black toner is expensive

A busy office will like this model's speed and features, but its toner pricing and photo quality are disappointing.

Canon Color imageClass MF8350Cdn


The Canon Color ImageClass MF8350Cdn multi-function printer (MFP), or all-in-one (AIO) if you prefer, delivers high-quality output at exceptionally fast speed—especially considering its price ($699 direct, which includes a 1-year on-site warranty). It...

Fast. Good paper handling. Prints, scans, and faxes over network. Standalone copier and fax

Fax from PC feature requires custom installation. Scanning using a program's scan command requires two trips to the printer

The Canon Color ImageClass MF8350Cdn all-in-one (aka MFP) delivers impressive speed and output quality for a small office or workgroup.

Canon ImageCLASS MF8350Cdn


The Canon imageCLASS MF8350Cdn is a good choice for a laser printer. It offers multifunctional tools that increase productivity. Additionally, it features decent printing speeds and networking capabilities. However, this printer is large and lacks...

The Canon MF8350Cdn is a multifunctional printer with scanning, faxing, copying and printing capabilities

You may find yourself restocking the measly 125-sheet paper tray on a frequent basis if you use this printer extensively

This Canon printer offers a wide variety of features, but Canon needs to make many improvements before it becomes a top printer.

Canon Color ImageClass MF8350Cdn review


The Canon Color ImageClass MF8350Cdn colour laser multifunction printer offers a tempting purchase price and some good features. Like most low-cost machines we've tested, however, it has trade-offs - including pricey black toner and uneven photo quality.

The Canon Color ImageClass MF8350Cdn has better paper handling and expandability than many similarly priced machines. Even with its various shortcomings, it's still a worthy choice for a small office with moderate print volume and basic graphics needs.

Canon Color ImageCLASS MF-8350Cdn


I'm not sure this is a good printer for us. I really wanted this for the duplex ability but other than that it seems ok.

The output is very nice and seems quick but only seems to print single sided easily

I'm not sure about this machine yet. I have tried duplex printing and the paper keeps jamming. I even tried a thicker paper thinking maybe it was too thin and it jammed also. When I installed the software on my computer before hooking it up via usb I...

Canon Color ImageCLASS MF-8350Cdn


Over all very good. Network setup easy, software installation easy. Use of buttons easy. Standby mode - its completely quiet

We found the Canon MF8350cdn to be too noisy in "Ready" mode in our small office. Perhaps too noisy. This review did not mention the operating noise from the MF8350 at all, this is disappointing as all these Small office printers need to be very quiet,...

Canon Color ImageCLASS MF-8350Cdn


Extremely poor implementation of multipurpose tray makes the printer a burden to use if you need to use the multipurpose tray.

print speed and quality

use of Multipurpose Tray is not automatic if paper is added to it; you have to go into the printe properties box and switch the paper source to Multipurpose in order to print from that tray. This is crazy; all other printers draw from this tray if...

Buy Something Else


I've had this printer now for a month, and been holding off on a review hoping I'd come to terms with it's shortcomings. Unfortunately, in an idiotic move, I threw away the box and packaging after opening the thing, since I didn't have space to store...

Fast Startup to first page ; Document Feeder works well for scanning

If first page doesn't jam for no reason ; Horrible color - even after re-calibrating multiple times ; Frequent paper jams ; Network Scan functions NOT AVAILABLE FOR MAC OS X
