I am in the market for a colour laser multifunction printer. I have the following requirements:

  • Ethernet networking (RJ-45)
  • Duplex printing and scanning
  • Document feeder for scanning
  • Scanning and printing should be able to be initiated over network.
  • Good Linux compatibility

In terms of budget I would be looking ideally at less than £300. I would consider a recommendation for a unit that would be a good fit that is available secondhand.

    Just to clarify...you want someone away from the scanner to initiate a scan job remotely rather than have the scanner sent it via email or shared folder? I ask because for us, this has never been a reliable workflow and ended up getting a desktop scanner. Commented Apr 2, 2016 at 11:49
  • In reality no thinking about it I don't need that functionality, that's an extension of my current workflow, using a desktop scanner. Scan to share or email would be fine

1 Answer 1


I did some digging around and in the end I got a Lexmark CX 310. The only thing it falls down on is the duplex scanning automatically, however the interface allows for it.

Having used it for a while now its a good little printer and fits nicely to my needs.
