The Sharp AR-M455N multifunction laser printer and copier has faster speeds than its AR-M355N counterpart, at up to 45 pages per minute, but has many of the same great features such as network printing and optional network scanning. Its 600 dpi printing resolution is solid enough for office documents and graphics, and savings on Sharp AR-M455N printer toner can help trim down supply costs.
In addition to the AR-M455N, the base model AR-M455 and the AR-M455U are available, but do not include extras like network printing. The optional network scanning component is worth the upgrade, providing numerous tools for sharing scanned documents with network users inside the office, or even emailing them as attachments to those outside the office. It might even prompt most offices to skip the optional faxing upgrade.
One aspect that often goes ignored with a multifunction device is security. Sensitive documents often make their way through a machine's memory every day, and these can potentially be retrieved if not properly protected. The AR-M455N periodically overwrites the system memory at intervals to avoid this situation, and managers can also create and track user accounts to find out who is using the most paper and Sharp AR-M455N toner, for example.
Speaking of toners, the cost of Sharp AR-M455N toner cartridges tends to be lower than the average for its class, with high-capacity supplies that keep the cost per page low. The single black Sharp AR-M455N toner cartridge can provide up to 35,000 pages before it expires, so it will last a long time between replacements.
Though it requires a few upgrades to get its best features, like network scanning, the AR-M455N is still a very affordable and powerful machine. Although its speeds are just average, it has a lot to offer for a low price, and Sharp AR-M455N toner supplies are inexpensive.
