Though its print and copy speeds aren't as fast as some of the competition, the Sharp MX-4100N multifunction color laser printer offers respectable output of 41 pages per minute. Its print quality is also impressive, at 1200 dpi resolution, and the large touchscreen display and retractable keyboard make controlling the machine very easy.
Sitting atop the machine is a duplexing, single-pass automatic document feeder with an impressive capacity of either 100 or 150 sheets, depending on which configuration buyers choose. This allows for very quick scanning, at up to 50 originals per minute, and a first copy time of as little as 10.1 seconds.
The standard input paper capacity is 1,100 sheets, including a 100-sheet bypass feeder and two 500-sheet drawers. It can be further expanded up to a maximum of 5,600 sheets for those high workloads that require it.
The control panel includes an easy-to-use touchscreen display, as well as a full keypad and dedicated buttons for each function. An 80 GB hard drive is included for storing scanned files, and the addition of a retractable keyboard makes searching for and naming files easier. Files can be easily shared across the network or emailed directly to recipients, and the unit can even tap into the office's LDAP or Active Directory address books.
Since color printers require multiple toners, the operating costs can be a bit higher, but Sharp MX-4100N toner cartridges are reasonably affordable. The black Sharp MX-4100N toner cartridge provides up to 20,000 pages, while each color supply is rated for around 15,000 pages. Buyers can generally find compatible Sharp MX-4100N toner supplies for less, saving money compared to higher OEM prices.
For offices that need color printing at heavy workloads, the MX-4100N is a great fit. Its roomy paper handling is ready to be expanded, and output quality is very sharp. Best of all, Sharp MX-4100N printer toner is affordable enough to keep an office under budget.
