The Sharp MX-C402SC multifunction color laser printer and copier impresses mainly with its 40 pages per minute speeds, especially at a relatively low purchase price for its class. Its starting paper capacity is a little small, but standard features like a 100-sheet ADF add to its value, as does the savings on Sharp MX-C402SC printer toner.
For a machine that can print, copy, and scan, you might not suspect that scanning is its most robust feature, but it's true. The unit features a 100-sheet automatic document feeder that can handle two-sided sheets in a single pass, and its dual scanning paths provide two methods, one of which is a straight path for heavy media. Scans are easily sent to email or to a network folder share, and can even be stored on the internal 80 GB hard drive.
In design, the MX-C402SC (sometimes referred to as the MX-C402) is actually fairly compact, especially in its standard configuration without extras. It weighs around 127 pounds even with the Sharp MX-C402SC toner cartridges and other supplies installed, and its footprint of 22x19 inches is pretty tidy for such a powerful device. The one major drawback is that it includes only 600 sheets with the base model configuration, though upgrades are available for up to 2,100 sheets altogether.
If replacing all four toners sounds daunting, and expensive, have no fear. The Sharp MX-C402SC toner cartridges are actually very affordable. Combined with a large capacity of 10,000 pages each, the cost per page is generally lower than much of the competition in its price range.
The color capabilities of the MX-C402SC do add some additional cost, but it is generally a very affordable machine. Buyers might also consider the MX-B402SC model that is monochrome-only, but offers the same great feature set.
