Sharp sets the pace for entry-level to mid-range A3 colour MFPs

Sharp has raised the stakes in the A3 colour MFP market with a new offering that provides performance and productivity in a compact design.

The new MX-2301N combines rapid print speeds, high quality output and all of the essential functions that are needed for everyday use. Sharp set out to deliver maximum value for money by focusing on the features that make a real difference. Just as likely to impress, though, is the superb image quality which has been further enhanced by a brand new toner and developer.

"Today's customers are more demanding than ever when it comes to creating hard copy documents. Colour, clarity and resolution are all key," said Marc Brion, MFP product manager, Sharp (UK) Ltd. "After all, print speed is measured in moments but quality lasts forever. With the MX-2301N no one has to accept second best."

The MX-2301N comes with a range of robust, built-in security features designed to protect business information from all kinds of unauthorised interception. In addition, a range of optional upgrades includes a fax, extra paper drawers and a space-saving Inner Finisher for simple sorting, stapling and hole punching.

The MX-2301N is supplied ready to run all the latest Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture) applications and its contemporary design with smooth curves and attractive grained exterior help it to blend in with modern d├ęcor.

Regardless of the configuration, ease of use and administration is guaranteed through thoughtful features and a suite of useful management utilities. The Remote Access Front Panel utility, for example, allows support staff to see exactly what the end-user is seeing. They can remotely change settings, show the user how to perform a function, and diagnose and often rectify problems from across the network.

As well as being equipped with a manual power save button to save energy and reduce running costs, the new MX-2301N benefits from an industry-leading design that cuts energy consumption right down to a single watt - just enough to receive faxes. The MX-2301N fully complies with Energy Star version 1.1 which guarantees energy efficiency.
