Sharp MX-C311 Information

As with all the A4 MFPs in its range, Sharp’s MX-C311 matches a diminutive design with superbly consistent performance. Getting the most from this machine is simple thanks to its user friendly design specifications and the features and capabilities are top of the line. Faxing, printing and photocopying can all be handled at the touch of a button and quality is assured for all sizes and types of jobs.

Sleek, Compact Design

The Sharp MX-C311 comes with a polished design that makes it easy to use, stylish and compact. At 535mm wide and 438mm deep it is remarkably small, so it fits snugly into any office space. All functions are easily accessible on the 8.5 inch touch screen LCD, an intuitive and accessible system that lets even the least tech-savvy user navigate documents with ease.

Great Quality Prints

With 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution in the print engine, the Sharp MX-C311 is absolutely at the top of the tree for high performance photocopiers. Those sharp images come at speed too, thanks to a rapid 31 page per minute output. An in-built stackless duplex module is incredibly effective at both saving filling space and reducing paper costs.

Efficiency as Well as Quality

The compact design of the Sharp MX-311 does not stop at the exterior. The optional inner finisher takes up little space and takes care of those small tasks that add up to drain time from your workflow, like stapling and sorting. The paper capacity can also be enhanced if the large, standard 500 sheet tray is too small for your business. The largest capacity available is a whooping 2,100 sheets, meaning refilling is a rare occurrence.

Share Documents Safely and Securely

It is little wonder that security has become such a big issue in the modern workplace. As all your sensitive data is, in all likelihood, stored on your computers, you need to know who is accessing what at all times. The Sharp MX C311 was designed with those concerns in mind and so features a raft of safety and security features to keep your intellectual property and private company information secure. Confidential Print mode withholds certain documents and can be set-up to require a PIN before they can be accessed. Secure Sockets Layer encrypts data so it cannot be leaked through your network and User Authentication can hold up to 1,000 different registered users, making sure you know who is printing what and when.

For a professional photocopier that offers security, style and high performance, look no further than the Sharp MXC311.

The Sharp MM 300 series are very sturdy photocopiers with high lifetime print totals bound to last more than 5 years (which is the usual leasing period by the way). Sharp MX C311 appears to be more expensive that its similarly ranged copiers, and this accounts for the improved print quality, a slight difference in technology. So expect great looking brochures and flyers at very competitive prices per copy, along with the standard option for black and white printing. Not a bad deal, considering the low Top4Office price, the best we could find at this time.

Running at 31 pages per minute in A4 colour, with automated double sided printing, scanner and copier, Sharp MXC311 is a great contender for any new office photocopier. In light of its superb feature set it looks more like an investment than a liability. Recommended!
