"Sharp's copier MFPs have long been known for their quality, innovation, and ease of use, and their current line holds up to that standard," said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production, Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab. "In fact, Sharp's current line sets the industry standard when it comes to usability. The control panels are highly intuitive and customizable on a user-by-user basis, and users can quickly access the most commonly used scan and copy functions. Throw in the easy-to-use drivers, the retractable keyboard, and the innovative, award-winning web utility, and building workflows is a cinch for walk-up users and IT administrators alike. Plus, in an office environment where reliability day in and day out is also a key factor, Sharp's line stands tall as a leader in the industry." Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab.
