Be Colour Forward - Make the Switch to a Compact, Full Colour Solution

There is no easier way to add impact to business communications than with the high-quality colour of the MX-2010U. This compact, energy-efficient A3 MFD provides all the essential copy, print, and network scanfunctions—in full colour—as well as a convenient fax option.

The productivity-boosting MX-2010U delivers fast 20-page-per-minute output in both colour and B/W and offers superb print quality via the upgraded toner. The optional 100-sheet RSPF (reversing single pass feeder) enhances the effectiveness of the MX-2010U’s built-in stackless duplex module. The HDD option brings greater efficiency by enabling such advanced functions as integrated document management for enhanced workflow, third-party creation of customised applications via the Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture) option, and reliable data protection via the Data Security Kit option.
