The Sharp MX-6201N offers fast color laser printing at a fairly affordable price, as it can print up to 62 pages per minute in monochrome and 50 pages per minute in color. With features like network printing and scanning, as well as copying, it is a robust machine, but high costs for Sharp MX-6201N printer toner make it a little less of a long-term bargain.
The MX-6201 is built for networked office environments, hence its "N" designation. It can not only handle network printing, but its network scanning feature makes it quick and easy to get digital documents where users need them to be. Users have the option of sending documents by email, saving to a network folder, or even storing them on the unit's internal 80 GB hard drive.
Managing documents is also quite simple, thanks to the large 10.4-inch touchscreen display. The menu system uses colorful icons for easier navigation, and users can see previews of their documents before printing or sharing. Shortcut keys can be programmed and stored for easy access to commonly used workflows as well.
Color printing generally means more replacement toners, and the MX-6201N is no exception. In fact, the cost of Sharp MX-6201N toner cartridges is the unit's biggest drawback. Each black supply has a yield of around 49,000 pages, while each of the three color Sharp MX-6201N toner cartridges can provide around 31,000 pages. This means Sharp MX-6201N toner replacements won't be need often, but they are still pricey.
The MX-6201N has plenty of room for expansion, but also starts out well-equipped. It comes with a standard paper capacity of 3,100 sheets, but can be upgraded up to a maximum of 6,600 sheets as needed.
The MX-6201N certainly has what it takes when it comes to speed and network integration, and buyers who only need occasional color printing may find it appealing. Unfortunately, its operating costs may be a little too high for the average office environment.
