Awarded choice for small and medium companies
Research from analysts IDC suggests that by 2020 some 85 per cent of A3 office printers purchased in Europe will be colour as opposed to monochrome. This trend is being driven by decreasing running costs, as well as the expectations of higher quality for end-users. For Sharp, this move from monochrome to colour is a key demand in the A3 printer space, one we’re responding to with our ever-expanding MX range of colour MFPs.
Presented annually, the individual Buyers Laboratory’s Pick awards recognise the hardware products that are best in class based on the results of BLI’s rigorous two-month laboratory evaluation. Recently Sharp’s MX-3050N and MX-3070N were awarded the BLI Picks for Outstanding Entry-level A3 Colour MFP in 21 to 30ppm speed range and an Outstanding 21 to 30ppm A3 Colour MFP respectively

The newly-refreshed MX series includes thirteen MFP devices from 30 to 60ppm, offering flexible workflows and easy-to-use functions common to the whole range.

The models are adaptable and can be upgraded as and when a business demands. The diverse range of optional features include advanced finishing solutions, Office Direct Print and Sharp’s Open System Architecture. If you’re looking for the perfect finish to your output, then features such as manual and stapleless stapling bring new possibilities to the presentation of your documents.
