Sharp FO-6600 Printer Review
Many buyers view faxing as an add-on to multifunction devices, but the Sharp FO-6600 laser fax machine is for the user who needs fast, reliable faxing on a regular basis. Its Super G3 transfer speeds are fast, and it uses two modems for multi-line connections. Best of all, users can save a lot of money on Sharp FO-6600 printer toner thanks to high-capacity supplies.
The FO-6600 features one major upgrade over similar models in its line, such as the FO-5500, which is a second paper tray. The main tray can hold up to 650 sheets, while the second adds an extra 500 sheets of input paper capacity. For a busy office environment, the extra tray will mean much fewer refills throughout the week. The starting memory of 2 MB can store around 108 pages, but upgrading to 16 MB will allow the machine to store up to 960 pages in memory in the event that it runs out of paper, for example.
An automatic document feeder is included, and can hold up to 50 sheets at a time for outgoing faxes. A flatbed scanner is also included, so users aren't limited to only loose sheets. A telephone handset is included on the machine's left side, and the control panel is located conveniently on top of the scanning lid, as a nice contrast to the cramped control panels of some competing models.
When replacement toners are needed, buyers have a few options. Each Sharp FO-6600 toner cartridge has an average yield of 5,500 pages, which means a low cost per page. If users want to save even more, they can find compatible Sharp FO-6600 toner cartridges from third-party vendors.
Overall, the FO-6600 would be a great selection for a small or medium office on a budget. The affordability of Sharp FO-6600 toner supplies combine with a fast, space-saving design that is a good value for the price.
