Sharp DX-B350P Printer Review
The Sharp DX-B350P isn't the quickest laser printer in its class, but it packs a lot of punch into a fairly compact design. This makes it a great fit for smaller offices, while it still provides output speeds of up to 35 pages per minute. It also comes with dual paper drawers with expandability options. Buyers should be aware that Sharp DX-B350P printer toner supplies can be a little pricey.
Sometimes referred to as the DX-B350, this machine offers true 1200 dpi output resolution, unlike those that use interpolation. This results in very sharp documents with well-defined text and graphics. Automatic duplexing is supported as an option, so that users can print on both sides of the page and save on paper costs. It also has a Toner Saver mode that can help reduce the amount of Sharp DX-B350P toner applied to each page.
The machine's footprint is relatively compact, especially considering how well it performs. It is also not overly heavy, weighing just 46.3 pounds. The unit is network-ready, so it can be easily shared on a wired network. The initial paper capacity includes two drawers for a total of 700 sheets. It can be further expanded to a maximum of 1,800 sheets, which allows it to grow with an office.
Replacing and installing toners is a simple process, but Sharp DX-B350P toner cartridges are some of the more expensive supplies in its class. It does help that each Sharp DX-B350P toner cartridge offers a yield of around 18,000 pages, but buyers on a tight budget may need to seek out a more cost-effective option.
For the networked office environment that requires a dedicated printer, the DX-B350P is hard to beat. Its performance and output quality is top notch, and its compact design is a real space saver for tight office spaces.
