Product Overview

Sharp has recently released two new devices in its Essential Series: the MX-B350W and MX-B450W. Both devices are monochrome MFPs that offer standard printing, copying, scanning and faxing features. The MX-B350W ($2,000) prints and copies at up to 35 ppm and has a first-copy-time of 9 seconds, while the MX-B450W ($2,300) prints and copies at up to 45 ppm and includes a first-copy-time of 8.5 seconds.

Both devices include a five-line LCD operation panel, an 800 MHz processor and 1 GB of memory. PCL and PostScript printing languages are supported. USB, Ethernet and wireless connectivity are standard. The devices also support mobile printing and scanning via the Sharpdesk Mobile app.
