As a multifunction laser printer, copier, and scanner, the Sharp MX-M260 is an improvement on previous models. It has a larger touchscreen display for easier control, and its standard paper capacity is also larger. Its maximum speed of 26 pages per minute is not the fastest in its class, but users will benefit from affordable Sharp MX-M260 printer toner to keep operating costs down.
The MX-M260 has a fairly small footprint of 24.7x25 inches, so it doesn't take up too much space. It weighs a fairly heavy 114 pounds, though this does include the Sharp MX-M260 toner cartridge and drum unit as well. Enhancements like extra paper trays will add to it height without adding to its footprint, keeping its compact form factor.
The unit starts with a paper capacity of 1,100 sheets that might be all many offices really need. Since it is expandable to 2,100 sheets, it does offer room to grow, so that smaller offices can continue to use it as they expand. For scanning, the unit includes a 100-sheet reversing single-pass feeder that can churn through multi-page documents quickly.
One of the more essential upgrades for the multi-user office is the network print controller. This allows the device to be shared among an entire office via ethernet. A network scanning option is also available, and allows users to save documents to network folders or even email them directly.
Larger capacity toners are another improvement over previous models, but prices for Sharp MX-M260 toner are just as affordable. The Sharp MX-M260 toner cartridges can provide a yield of 25,000 pages that keeps the cost per page at a fraction of a cent.
With a relatively compact design, an improved control panel, and larger paper capacity, there is a lot to like about the Sharp MX-M260. Buyers may overlook this model due to its slower speeds, but its low operating costs and affordable purchase price make it worth serious consideration for a small or medium office.
