Canon MF4350d review for Linux
The Canon MF4350d is a nice multi-function device that works very well with Ubuntu Linux. Both the scanner and the printer features work great–and rather inexpensive toner is available from third parties on Amazon and eBay. The main downsides of the MF4350d vs. more expensive MFC’s are:
- document scanner is SINGLE-sided instead of double-sided
- the “d” model does not have Ethernet (the MF4370dn is networked, but I have not used that model).
