Adding color laser output to an already impressive array of features, the Sharp MX-4141N is a multifunction device worth considering for the medium-sized office. Its maximum speed of 41 pages per minute applies to both color and black-and-white output, and large capacities for Sharp MX-4141N printer toner actually keep it fairly affordable to operate.
The control of the unit centers on the 10.1-inch touchscreen interface, which resembles many popular tablet designs. Large icons and an intuitive menu make it very easy to use, even for novices, and users can customize and save the workflows they use most for quick access. The base unit measures 38x25.5x30 inches, with a hefty weight of 278 pounds that includes the Sharp MX-4141N toner supplies.
While the MX-4141N includes a networking upgrade over the MX-4141 model, there are several other upgrades available as well. Users can expand the paper capacity from the initial 1,100 sheets up to a maximum of 6,600 sheets. There are also finishing options available such as stapling and saddle stitching that can add a nice finish to projects without a lot of manual labor. Users can also add faxing with an optional upgrade kit.
With four toners to replace, operating costs can seem a bit daunting, the large capacities of Sharp MX-4141N toner cartridges actually helps provide a low cost per page. Each color supply can yield around 18,000 pages, while the black Sharp MX-4141N toner cartridge is rated for around 40,000 pages. This means users can go a long time between replacements.
The MX-4141N might be too bulky for smaller offices, and its upfront cost is certainly high. Larger offices with the budget to support it will find its excellent touchscreen interface a joy to use, however, and its fast speed and upgradeability are impressive as well.
