Sharp AR-M207 Printer Review
With a lot of expandability, the Sharp AR-M207 multifunction laser copier works equally well as a small office machine or for larger workloads in a workgroup. Its speed of 20 pages per minute is a bit unimpressive, but the 600 dpi printing engine produces sharp output. It is also pretty affordable when it comes to replacing Sharp AR-M207 printer toner supplies.
The control panel of the AR-M207 is a bit simplistic, with a 5-line LCD that is not touch-enabled. Still, it does an adequate job, and is easy to use. The base configuration includes a flatbed scanner, but an optional automatic document feeder will be worth the upgrade for faster scanning of multi-page documents. The initial input paper capacity starts at 600 sheets, but is upgradeable to a maximum of 1,100 sheets.
Another upgrade that will likely be worth the price is network printing and scanning. Both can be added with the Network Expansion Kit, which equips it as a shared network printer and scanner. The included Sharpdesk Desktop software provides users an excellent way to manage their digital documents after scanning, with multiple ways to edit and share. They can even load other documents from their PC to keep them all organized in one place.
Office managers often fret about the cost of replacing toners, but Sharp AR-M207 toner cartridges offer a low cost per page, thanks to high yields and low prices. The single Sharp AR-M207 toner cartridge is rated for around 16,000 pages, so even busy offices can go a long time between replacements.
Small office buyers should consider the AR-M207 for its affordable purchase price and excellent base configuration. Larger offices should consider it for its upgrade potential, and both will be happy with its inexpensive Sharp AR-M207 toner supplies.
