Sharp MX-C381 Information

You might think that a world class multifunction digital document system comes with a high price and a huge footprint and about five year ago you might have been right. Nowadays, however, innovators like Sharp create hardware that is affordable and compact, yet still houses all the functions and power an office needs from their digital print devices. The colour A4 MFP MX C381 is a good case in point.

A stylish design to suit any office

What is, perhaps, most incredible about the Sharp MX C381 is how much power and pace it packs into such a compact, stylish design. It comes with remarkably small dimensions: just 535 mm wide and 438 mm deep. This allows it to fit snugly into even the most cramped of offices. That’s great news for those who run small businesses but still need a reliably fast flow of data and documents to support their workflow. It’s user-friendly too, with an 8.5 inch LCD touch screen display and a logically laid-out interface.

Quality made simple

The swift 31 pages per minute print and copy speeds of the MX C381 do not just mean documents arrive quickly in your out tray. When married to the 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution, they ensure rapid speed is matched by sophisticated quality every time you press that green button. The in-built stackless duplex module is great for both saving on paper and saving space in the office.

Stay efficient throughout ownership

Efficiency of both design and operation are at the forefront of everything the Sharp MX C381 does. Even when you add high performance options such as the inner finisher capable of stapling and sorting, it adds nothing to the dimensions. For those looking for high volume printing and copying, options can extend the paper capacity to a massive 2,100 sheets, to ensure that replenishing or refilling the device is a rare occurrence.

Safety and security is a top priority

When you consider the amount of sensitive company information that passes through your network on a daily basis, the security features of all your hardware become incredibly important. With Confidential Print Mode,l Secure Sockets Layer and User Authentication on board, you can rest assured that your sensitive data will be treated with utmost care when you have the Sharp MX C381 on your network.

When I first started looking for a photocopier I was advised to go with refurbished machines instead of new models, for similar performance on a tight budget. Cannot say the idea did not appeal to me, but after checking market prices it seems there are new photocopiers out there which do not cost an arm and a leg. Top4office helped match our office print needs with the right copier machine and the result speaks for itself. Sharp MX-C381 is highly effective when it comes to both speed and price per copy, a true document management powerhouse. Overhead is an issue, but while initial costs seem high, they are recovered in time through lower cost per copy and the resulting print savings. We found this solution to suit us best.

The reason we purchased this particular copier has to do with internal infrastructure. Our company has several smaller offices scattered within the same building, on different floors. Since using a single high volume photocopier is not an option, we had to create a networked solution that would allow every department to have copier access. By grouping 60 users per copier machine, we can now handle the work load with just three Sharp MX C381 and no logistical nightmare. Another well budgeted acquisition victory.
