"We ran over one million impressions on Sharp copier MFPs this season, to exceptional overall results," said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copier MFP/Production Analysis, Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab. "As a whole, productivity results were better than other competitors. Short- and long-run jobs for printing, scanning, and copying were completed in a timely manner to allow users to remain effective and efficient. Above average memory for faster processing of jobs is another nicety, as is above average paper weight support for media flexibility. Strong reliability and above average maximum paper capacities mean less downtime for users to clear misfeeds or refill paper drawers. IT administrators will love the web user interface’s intuitiveness and search and shortcut functionality. And Sharp’s ‘know one, know all’ approach means users of the drivers and control panel will enjoy the same very good overall usability regardless of which machine is close to their particular workspace." Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab.

Sharp Offers Mid-Volume Environments Superior Functionality and Performance—for Less
“Sharp offers mid-volume environments outstanding user-friendliness, performance, and functionality for a way lower cost per page than the competition,” said Kaitlin Shaw, Senior Editor of Printer/MFP Analysis, Keypoint Intelligence. “The MX-B476W (soon to be released in Australia market) and MX-C304W were the hands down winners in their respective categories. Both offer robust scan functionality, a well-designed touchscreen, and simple routine maintenance procedures. The devices also produced high-quality, professional-looking output that will easily meet the needs of general office environments. They include Sharp’s OSA embedded software platform, which enables integration with a variety of software solutions that can help businesses save even more time and money. Both models represent an exceptional value and choice for SMBs and mid-size workgroups.”
