This review is from: Canon Color imageCLASS MF8350Cdn MFC / All-In-One Up to 21 ppm 2400 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality Color Laser Printer
Pros: Low acquisition cost.
Cons: 1. No features work if one of the toner cartridges is low. Toner status has only 3 settings, the middle of which lasts for about 10 pages: "OK, low, replace." 2. The starter toner cartridges that are included exhaust quickly. 3. A set of Canon replacement cartridges cost as much as the printer. 4. Duplex was a key selling point; however print drivers (Windows XP, Mac OS) do not support duplex printing, and copying only supports 1-sided originals to 2-sided copies, not 2 sided originals to 2-sided copies. Further, the interface is so poor, nobody in the office can figure out how to may 1-sided to 2-sided using the platen!
Other Thoughts: Regarding the fact that no features work if one of the toner cartridges is low, this is obviously a programmed roadblock, as there is no reason you should not be able to send an outgoing fax. There is also no reason that you should not be able to choose to have an incoming fax print purple instead of black, so that you can received the darn fax!
The only buyer who should consider this is the home office/small office user who prints very infrequently, but needs to look very professional when he/she does print. Scanning with the ADF is nice. The ability to make an occasional photocopy is important.
I wish this printer had true duplex printing, and that the duplex copying worked. If that were the case, I would be more accepting of the low initial investment / high per-page cost trade-off.
