Sharp MX-M503U Information

As the pace of modern business continues to grow faster and faster, sometimes it seems technological advancements make life more complicated for the office manager or administrator than easier. If you are tired of printers and copiers that require intricate processes to operate, then say hello to the Sharp MX-M503U, a top of the line MFP loaded with sophisticated features, which is as easy to use as it is innovatively designed. Administrating its many functions could not be easier and can all be handled from the manager’s PC Desktop, minimising hassle and letting you get on with your job of running the workplace.

Fast printing with magnificent resolution

With 50 pages per minute speeds in monochrome A4 and 600 x 600 dots per inch resolution, you can be sure that the Sharp MX-M503U will deliver a rapid flow of crisp, clear documents. It’s versatile too, maintaining strong speeds of 22 pages per minute when switched to A3 mode. For greater document handling power, choose from the deep menu of advanced finishing options like folding, sorting, stapling and hole punching. 

Copy with confidence

As well as being a magnificently effective printer, the Sharp MX M503U is an ultra reliable black and white photocopier too. It boasts the power of 256-level greyscale to reproduce all images and text with remarkable clarity. The first copied page hits the out tray in just 3.9 seconds, so firing off a quick copy is a pretty much instant process. Features like Book Copy help you take things up to the next level, allowing you to directly copy a book in a pamphlet format. Another innovation is Card Shot, which copies both sides of an ID card to the same sheet of paper.

Really reliable document management

Managing the flow of files and jobs through your network has never been easier than with the Sharp MX M503U on your office network. Packing 80 GB in the optional hard drive, you have no end of space on which to store, peruse and edit scans and prints. The busy office administrator can monitor and manage how documents are being accessed across the business using the ground breaking Sharp Desk software.

Secure your data flow

The Sharp MX M503U is one of the most reliably secure platforms you can add to your office network. It comes with Secure Network Card as standard, which allows you to restrict access to the device only to authorised users. PDFs can be encrypted so, during distribution, won’t be readable to malicious users. The optional Data Security Kit can take this encryption up a level, encrypting the entire hard disk for completely airtight safety.

Fast moving, high performance and absolutely secure: the Sharp MX-M503U is a great choice for the smart medium sized office.

It has been a pleasure to deal with Top4office when looking for a new photocopier for our London office. The challenge was to get the lowest possible cost per page given our current printing needs. Sharp MX-M503U is a good choice in this regard, especially since it meets our budget.

Photocopier comparison websites are more interested in dealing with the price tag as opposed to actual copier specs so we needed the extra input to make up our mind. Top4Office personnel were very helpful and provided us with all the details we needed to make significant progress in our buying cycle. Sharp MX M503U presents the perfect mix of features and productivity for a reasonable total cost of acquisition. We are happy to have such a robust photocopier with quite a few optional extras while the lease is just under £90 per month.
