As the fastest of three models in its line, the Sharp MX-5001N can reach a maximum speed of 50 pages per minute in both color and black-and-white. This high-volume color laser printer can also scan, fax, and copy, and its inexpensive Sharp MX-5001N printer toner supplies really improve its cost-effectiveness.
The design of the machine is quite impressive, with several great design features that users will appreciate. It features a large touchscreen that measures 8.5 inches diagonally, leaving plenty of room for large icons and simple controls. It also includes dedicated physical buttons for things like color and black copies, and a full keypad. As an added bonus, its retractable keyboard slides out from under the screen and can be tucked away when not in use.
For buyers wondering if a keyboard is really necessary, consider the unit's digital scanning and document storage features. It includes an 80 GB hard drive for storing documents, and scans can be sent via email. Having the keyboard allows users to easily compose a small email with the document as an attachment, simplifying the entire digital workflow.
The 1200 dpi printing engine is utilized quite well for high-quality output, and text and graphics are sharp. A Toner Save mode can help to reduce the amount of Sharp MX-5001N toner applied to each page, with only a small drop in quality, and is particularly beneficial for color printing.
Speaking of toners, the cost of Sharp MX-5001N toner cartridges is surprisingly low, and supplies are easy to replace. The black supply is rated for a yield of 20,000 pages, while each of the color Sharp MX-5001N toner cartridges can supply around 15,000 pages.
Each of the MX-5001N's major functions are very well-designed, but buyers might find themselves using the scanning and document sharing functions more than the others. Its digital workflows are so intuitive that it may end up reducing the need for paper in even the busiest offices.
