Sharp MX-M453U Information

Like all Sharp Multifunctional Photocopiers, the MX-M453U is designed specifically to make things easy for the user. If you run an office or workgroup you will know how welcome such design considerations are. Managing the workflow that runs through this machine could not be easier, as device management features like Remote Diagnosis and Access Control allow you to keep track of who is using your machine, for what purpose they are using it, how much toner and paper are left and everything else that is essential to maintaining its high performance.

Quality Printing

The Sharp MX-M453U allows you to print A4 at a speed of 45 pages per minute and A3 at a rate of 20 per minute. Those excellent times are complemented by 600 x 600 dpi resolution, so this machine can match pace with quality. Adding finish to your documents can be achieved with a range of advanced options: folding, sorting, stapling and hole punching can all be easily enacted.

Quality Copying

The photocopying capabilities of this machine are just as impressive as its ability to print. The first copy out time of 3.9 seconds and the 256-level greyscale means fast delivery of beautifully reproduced documents comes consistently. For those looking for something extra from their copier, the Sharp MX-M453U offers a set of versatile editing features. Book Copy allows you to directly copy a book into pamphlet form, while Card Shot transfers both sides of an identity card onto a one page document.

Managing your Documents

Taking care of the flow of jobs running through your Sharp MX M453U could not be simpler. With an optional 80 GB hard drive you have plenty of space to save scans and prints for perusal later on. All of the machine’s function can be handled from your Desktop with the innovative Sharpdesk software. This allows you to browse, print, send and sort through 200 different file formats without leaving your desk.

Data Security

The Sharp MXM453U is a tough customer when it comes to security. A multi-layered system is in place as standard with Secure Network Card to prevent access to unauthorised users and encrypted PDFs to make sensitive information readable by password only. An optional Data Security Kit can encrypt data on the hard disk for greater peace of mind.

The Sharp MX 453U: High quality, high performance and highly secure technology that is easy to manage and affordably priced.

Purchasing a new photocopier proved to be fairly easy with help from top4office personnel. Their helpful and upbeat attitude to document printing options made the whole process palatable. We left the technical expertise to them and by matching our needs with what was available on the market came up with a winner: Sharp MX-M453u. Delivery and copier installation were quite fast, and everything was setup in just one day, without much office disruption. A great thanks goes to Top4office for all the effort and the high level of service provided.

Shopping for a new photocopier is a lot of work: prices are insane, direct product comparison is almost impossible since every manufacturer has their own standards, and colour print quality is also noticeably different from model to model. Like most people in my position, I did most of my research online and on the phone with various photocopier suppliers. What I came to find out is that best buys are slightly more expensive. I eventually narrowed it down to Sharp MX 2310 £2000 vs Sharp MX M453U £2350. The two are not dissimilar and one might be inclined to go with the cheaper model. Our printing needs are somewhere in the vicinity of 4300 copies per month, but given the fact that we are going to keep this machine for three to five years, some forward thinking is required. An extra £350 completely justifies the difference between 23 ppm and 45 ppm. As a welcomed bonus, now my documents finish printing while I walk to the copier.
