Geared toward the small office, the Sharp AR-5623D multifunction laser printer still provides solid speed, at up to 23 pages per minute. Paper capacity is solid for a small office machine and upgrades are available for future expansion, with features like an automatic document feeder available for faster scanning.
The maximum speed of the AR-5623D may not be its most impressive feature, but it keeps the price lower. It is still very quick to respond, however, with a first page out time of only 5.9 seconds, which actually might be even more important for busy users. It doesn't include network printing as a standard feature, but an optional Network Expansion Kit can connect it for sharing. Of course, the extra volume will mean a bit more expense in Sharp AR-5623D toner supplies.
The "D" added to the AR-5623 model name represents the machine's automatic duplexing feature, and with an optional 40-sheet automatic document feeder, it can support quick duplex scanning and copying as well. The standard paper capacity of 600 sheets is a bit on the small side for a busy office, but extra trays can take it all the way up to 1,100 sheets, perfect for even a medium-sized office of several shared users. The limitations of the 600 dpi printing engine could be an issue for some, but it still provides sharp text and graphics that will be adequate for general office use.
Buyers will be glad to know that toners are affordable, and the Sharp AR-5623D toner cartridge has a high capacity of 16,000 pages. Users who want to save a little more can choose compatible Sharp AR-5623D toner cartridges as an alternative to OEM supplies.
The AR-5623D isn't the fastest or most fully-featured model in its class, but its upgrade options can take care of some of its shortcomings, such as limited paper capacity. Overall, its affordable price tag and inexpensive Sharp AR-5623D toner supplies make it a very good value for the small office.
