The Sharp MX-C401 multifunction color laser printer adds a bit of a speed boost over its MX-C311 counterpart, with up to 41 pages per minute of speed in monochrome and color output. Otherwise, it provides the same great high-capacity paper and digital workflows, and the same affordable design for Sharp MX-C401 printer toner supplies.
The MX-C401 supports network printing and scanning, copying, and has an option for a faxing module for offices that still need it. Fair warning, however, that the excellent network scanning features are likely to replace faxing needs with higher-resolution documents that can be sent directly to an email address or network computer, or even saved directly to a USB flash drive connected to the front port.
A large 8.5-inch full-color touchscreen display is a blessing for those used to small screens and difficult interfaces. Its intuitive controls use large icons for easy viewing and tapping, while the screen also constantly displays the remaining level of Sharp MX-C401 toner for each individual color.
Its standard input paper capacity of only 500 sheets (with a 100-sheet bypass tray) might seem a little limiting, but it allows buyer to configure the input trays to their exact needs. With a maximum input paper capacity of 2,100 pages, there is certainly room to grow.
High-capacity Sharp MX-C401 toner cartridges can provide a very low cost per page for the office, with each supply yielding up to 10,000 pages before needing replaced. Considering the excellent digital workflow solutions included, managers may find themselves purchasing fewer Sharp MX-C401 toner cartridges per year than expected.
With a small paper capacity as the only limitation in its standard configuration, the Sharp MX-C401 is ready to grow into the high-volume machine an office needs, either now or in the future. Best of all, buyers won't have to spend a lot on replacement toners.
