Sharp MX-3111U Information

While people still talk non-stop about ‘the paperless office’, in reality hard copy documents are still essential to the way business is done across the globe. If you run a small business where professional looking printing, scanning and copying are high priorities then the Sharp MX-3111U will fit beautifully into your infrastructure. Combining speed, secure safety features, remote access control and utility software with over 160GB of storage space on its generous hard drive, this machine is all about giving the user as much choice and flexibility as possible from job to job.

Productivity in your Printing

If you are tired of having your MFP slow down when you print colour, the Sharp MX-3111U is the machine for you. This powerful device fires off prints and copies at a rate of 31 pages per minute no matter what ink you are using. A first page out time of 7.9 seconds means workflow will never have to slow down because of the time it takes to produce documents.

Clear, Crisp Images

For offices looking to print documents that mix style and visual dynamism with clarity and professionalism, this device can deliver time and time again. A colour print resolution of 600 x 600dpi and 9,600 x 600dpi interpolated means you get real quality when you need it. If you are not confident about your artistic abilities but still want to produce strong looking material, don’t worry – the Sharp MX3111’s Auto Colour Mode takes care of tone and colour settings to add a sheen of professional detail to all you print.

Efficiency, Easily Mastered

Complicated jobs are rendered simple thanks to the Sharp MX3111U’s rack of no-nonsense features, which lower maintenance time and promote effective document creation. Double sided scanning is accessible with a 100-sheet Reversing Single-Pass Feeder and a remote access control panel allows support staff to remotely view the display, so problems can be fixed and new staff can be trained easily.

Secure Photocopying and Document Management

In this age of information sharing and stored data you want to be sure any device that handles sensitive company material does so safely. The Sharp MX 3111U offers terrific security features including user authentication, confidential PIN printing and password protected PDF encryption. Storing documents is simple and safe, with an optional Data Security Kit available that prevents unauthorised access to certain files.

Boasting top of the line features for security, speed, excellence and efficiency, the Sharp MX 3111U is the ideal MFP for a small office.

5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars Sharp MX-3111U review, 3rd August 2012
5 5

Sharp MX 3111U is a beast of a copier, larger than my office desk and definitely heavier. But unlike my desk, it prints more than 30 pages each minute, including double sided papers. It also costs a lot more, but between a good discount, monthly leasing and accountancy tricks, it turned out to be quite manageable. All in one system that can handle network printing and send scanned documents directly to an email destination. Now that is the true meaning of high tech.

I never realised that our four year old photocopier and the new Sharp MX-3111U are a world apart in terms of performance. It is pretty much twice as fast, printed images are very detailed, with vibrant colours. ... and I was told the old model was just as expensive at the time.
