Sharp AR-5132 Printer Review
The Sharp AR-5132 is quite a robust laser copier, though it doesn't have the multifunction features some buyers might be looking for. Instead, buyers will get dedicated copying at speeds of up to 32 pages per minute and very affordable Sharp AR-5132 printer toner supplies that can reduce an office's operating budget.
Not only does the AR-5132 have a fast top speed, but it responds quickly to a new task, which is arguably even more important. A first copy time of 4.6 seconds means it will get started quickly, though its fastest speed comes from using the first paper tray only.
The unit starts with one paper tray with two paper trays, each with a capacity of 500 sheets. It also includes a manual feed tray for alternate media. A 3,000-sheet tray can be added as an option for larger offices that need the extra capacity. Other upgrade options include a duplexer for two-sided output and finishing units like a stapler and sorter.
The usual copy functions are included, with a wide range of zooming, from 50 to 400%. It is also adjustable in increments of 1% for better control of the results. A reversing automatic document feeder is included as a standard feature for faster scanning of multiple pages at once.
While its features will save users time, the low cost of toners can potentially save users a lot of money as well. Each Sharp AR-5132 toner cartridge is affordable to replace, and yet the estimated yield is around 15,000 pages. This gives Sharp AR-5132 toner supplies an impressive cost per page that will be a good fit for even small office budgets.
So many buyers are looking for multifunction machines these days that a dedicated copier might seem a bit outdated. With the idea of not paying for unnecessary features, however, and combined with low prices for Sharp AR-5132 toner cartridges, this machine could be the perfect solution for the office that doesn't need printing, scanning, and faxing.
