Sharp DX-B450P Printer Review
With quick speeds of up to 45 pages per minute, the Sharp DX-B450P monochrome laser printer is ready for serious workloads, but it won't take up a lot of space. Finishing options are available for customization, as well as extra paper capacity. Large yields for Sharp DX-B450P printer toner supplies help to make up for their expensive prices, keeping the unit cost-effective.
The DX-B450 series is a bit faster than the similar DX-B350 series, but includes similar features, such as dual paper trays and networking. Its paper capacity can be expanded from the initial 700 sheets to a maximum of 1,800 sheets. This gives it plenty of room to grow in the future to expand with a growing office's needs.
Of course, the DX-B450P isn't just built for smaller offices; it can work as an integrated solution for larger environments. In a networked office, managers can log into the device and manage it from its embedded web page. This provides information about the paper supply, the level of Sharp DX-B450P toner remaining, and more. Administrators can easily manage a fleet of devices to cover an entire company very efficiently.
The cost of toners is a larger factor in the overall expense of any machine, and Sharp DX-B450P toner cartridges fair pretty well in this regard. Each replacement Sharp DX-B450P toner cartridge can yield around 21,000 pages. This puts the cost per page fairly low, though it is not the most cost-effective device in its class.
Whether it's a small office looking to expand in the future or a larger office looking for a fleet of compact printers, the Sharp DX-B450P could be a very good fit. Its high-quality output and fast speeds are impressive, as long as buyers don't end up spending too much on replacement toners.
