With a maximum copy and print speed of up to 70 pages per minute (monochrome), the Sharp MX-7001N multifunction color laser printer definitely has the speed to keep up in a fast-paced office. It also has the capacity, with even more room to expand. Its major downside, however, is its expensive Sharp MX-7001N printer toner supplies, which might turn more than a few buyers away.
The MX-7001 earns its "N" by way of network integration for both printing and scanning. It also includes copying features, and has faxing available as a separate, optional upgrade. Chances are, most modern offices will get by nicely using network scanning and emailing as an alternative to faxing, which also conserves both paper and replacement toners.
The control panel features a large touchscreen display for easily controlling nearly every aspect of its operation. With streamlined menus and large icons, even novice users will have no trouble getting up and running. Best of all, common workflows can be easily saved and recalled when needed. With the My Sharp tool, administrators can manage the device (or even multiple devices) from any web browser, tracking usage, changing settings, and viewing the remaining levels of Sharp MX-7001N toner.
Offices that do a lot of color printing may find the cost of Sharp MX-7001N toner cartridges a bit too high, as replacing all four can get quite expensive. Although the Sharp MX-7001N toner cartridges have large capacities (31,000 pages for each color and 49,000 pages for black) the cost per page may be hard to justify in a busy office.
Although the MX-7001N is built for high-speed printing and copying, its network scanning feature might be the standout feature. With multiple ways to save on supplies with digital workflows, it is a good fit for offices making a gradual shift away from paper documents.
