The Sharp AR-5015N is a simple and compact laser copier that is perfect for the home office or small office. It will handle only low-volume use, but it can make up to 15 copies per minute, and the cost of Sharp AR-5015N printer toner will be much lower than that of the average inkjet model, but still expensive compared to others in its class.
No one likes to wait, and the AR-5015N is designed for quick response times. It has a warm-up time of only 35 seconds, so users can go from power on the first copy quickly. It also has a first copy time of just 7.2 seconds, though it is a bit slower in power save mode.
When it comes to paper handling, the AR-5015N (sometimes referred to as the AR-5015) a lot of versatility, but it gets the job done. It includes a bypass tray that can hold up to 100 sheets of alternative media, and a 250-sheet main paper tray. The similar AR-5120 model upgrades to two trays for more capacity, so busy users might consider spending a bit more to save themselves from having to reload paper frequently.
One of the biggest downside to this model is the cost of Sharp AR-5015N toner cartridges. Although each Sharp AR-5015N toner cartridge is rated for around 9,000 pages, the replacement cost is very high. Third-party Sharp AR-5015N toner is also difficult to find, so users are generally stuck with OEM prices.
For those buyers looking for a simple, compact, and affordable copying solution that can fit on a desk, the Sharp AR-5015N is worth a look. It lacks printing, scanning, and faxing features that other models include, however, and the cost of replacement toners can be fairly high.
