The Sharp AR-5320 is both a laser copier and a printer in one, yet it occupies very little space, as it is designed for the small office or even for busy home users. Despite its affordable price and compact frame, it offers upgrade options and advanced features, but the high cost of Sharp AR-5320 toner cartridges will make it less appealing for those on a tight budget.
Users might not expect dual trays from such a compact machine, but in fact, they get two 250-sheet trays and a 100-sheet bypass tray, adding up to a total of 600 sheets of input paper capacity. Even better, it can be expanded with up to two more trays, for a maximum of 1,100 sheets.
The AR-5320 can produce up to 20 copies per minute, making it one of the faster models in its price range. Printing, however, is a bit slower, maxing out at only 12 pages per minute. For scanning originals, users can choose between the standard flatbed platen or add an optional document feeder, which holds up to 40 originals at once. Impressively, it can handle original media up to 11x17 inches in size, despite its small footprint, giving users a lot of flexibility in the sizes of media they can copy.
The cost of toners generally ends up to be many times the cost of the machine over time, and the high cost of Sharp AR-5320 printer toner makes this even more of an issue. Although the Sharp AR-5320 toner cartridges have decent yields of up to 9,000 pages each, they are probably too expensive for a home user or small office on a slim budget.
The AR-5320 has an impressive package of features, from its expandable paper trays to the optional document feeder. Unfortunately, it is let down by the high cost of Sharp AR-5320 toner, so many potential buyers may find it too expensive to maintain.
