Aimed primarily at business and home office users, the Canon imageCLASS MF4350d Laser All-In-One Printer is a heavy-duty multi-function printer which is not appropriate for every user, mostly due to its large size.  The MF4350d doesn’t have quite the same variety of features that some of the other printers in the same class do, but it’s a reliable unit that does what it does very well, for the most part.

If you’re considering upgrading from a standard inkjet printer (or a stand-alone laser printer) for your home office or business, the MF4350d will give you plenty of reason to take the plunge.  At first glance, you can tell that it’s a heavy-duty, durable unit, and it’s well-constructed, as Canon machines usually are.  Nevertheless, the MF4350d is reasonably compact in terms of dimensions as far as this grade of printer goes.

Business users will be glad to know that the MF4350d is relatively easy to maintain, as well.  It makes use of a simple single-cartridge system, so you don’t need to worry about running out of some obscure type of ink.  On the other hand, this type of system isn’t quite as efficient as others are in some cases, so you may find that, over the long term, you’ll be paying a bit more to refill the MF4350d than you might with competing units.  Still, businesses that might not have an IT department or an IT specialist on staff should still be able to move to the MF4350d without any worries on the technical side of things.

The MF4350d has a 250-sheet capacity, which is about the standard for this class of printer.  It also has a very handy built-in duplexing feature, which can help you save a lot of paper over the long run.  The fax aspect of the MF4350d is top-of-the-line, so users who make heavy use of the fax should be more than happy with it.

There are some areas in which the MF4350d lags behind other multi-function printers.  Print quality with the MF4350d isn’t quite up to the standards set by competing printers such as the HP Officejet Pro and HP Photosmart Premium.  The resolution caps for the MF4350d are generally lower in comparison to its competitors, and it offers slightly lower print speed and lackluster copy speed.  It also doesn’t offer a wireless option, which is a sore spot, and another deficiency in comparison to the competitors.  There are no built-in networking options either – you’ll have to connect the MF4350d to a computer with a USB cable.  The 35-sheet feeder capacity of the MF4350d also lags behind the aforementioned HP models, which both have a 50-sheet feeder capacity.  Also, despite its compact dimensions, the MF4350d is about equal with its competitors in terms of weight.

There are some functionality problems with the MF4350d as well.  The copier and scanner lack an automatic resizing function, which is a major oversight.  Also, you’ll need to make sure to update the drivers in order to be able to print properly using the on-board buttons as opposed to through the computer, as this function wasn’t implemented correctly by Canon on release.

The MF4350d works more than adequately as a value choice.   For basic office needs, it will fit the bill, and it’s probably still the best value among Canon printers in this category, at a very attractive price point.   If the savings are the key, and you feel like you can do without some of the added features that some of the competing units have, the MF4350d is what I would recommend.
