Built around a modular design that allows you to bolt on fantastic features - scanning, networking etc. - only as and when you require them, the MX-M260 lets you build from the inside out. The foundation blocks are strong indeed. The 26ppm print engine crafts immaculate text with its 600x1200dpi resolution and clever toner technology, and also offers an A3 mode for truly spectacular prints. Optional finishing is available in a compact design that takes up no extra room, but still allows for high quality brochures and leaflets. Potential 2,100-sheet handling keeps the paper coming. Tools like Job Build and the Sharpdesk application streamline intricate tasks, and the security features are first class.

Modular Design
Sharp doesn't believe in swamping you with lots of options you'll never need or want, and the MX-M260's modular design allows you to start with the brilliantly executed basics and add features as and when you have a use for them. In its simplest form, the device offers copying and printing, using its powerful engine to put out as many as 26 pages per minute in A4. It can stretch to larger A3 paper (at a still fast 15 pages per minute) for the most spectacular results, while JBIG compression keeps job size down. At all times, the enhanced 600x1200 resolution support and micro-fine toner technology make for vibrant and crisp prints. And none of this functionality comes with excess poundage. Even the slimline Sharp's optional finishing device is an internal version that can sort, staple and stack your pages for maximum organisation, but without taking up extra room. Both space saving and time saving, then.

Full Networking
You can immediately start adding extra features to the Sharp M260. It can be kitted out with full networking, using ethernet and PCL5e/6 support (with Adobe PS3 also available) to maximise compatibility. You can also add mono network scanning, letting you capture and reproduce documents at a resolution of up to 600dpi. You can convert to a choice of flexible formats that include PDFs and TIFFs. Files can be sent through email, FTP and URL. Combine this with the Application Integration Module, and you can add information fields to the documents before having them automatically forwarded to another application, thus cutting down on tedious repetitious tasks. LDAP can locate unknown addresses for you, saving more time. Super G3 faxing is another option, and the versatile paper-free system lets you send transmissions quickly and cheaply.

Meaty Paper Handling
The highly capable paper handling supplies you with 1,100 sheets as standard, including the 100-sheet multi-bypass tray. However, you can boost this to an impressive 2,100 sheets, with the addition of two extra 500-sheet drawers. A 100-sheet reversing document feeder can be added. The Sharp comes with 32MB of RAM as standard, although if you're looking to run large jobs and sizeable image-rich files through this model, you can increase this to a total of 1GB.

Great Range of Tools
You have a good level of control over the MXM260, and the 8.1in touch screen's brilliantly intuitive interface lays everything within easy reach. The range of tools are great too. The Sharpdesk application allows you to organise and annotate your files with considerable skill. Job Build parcels up multiple existing jobs as one big one, for easy execution and management. Managers will also appreciate the ability to remotely monitor and update all devices from a single screen, even rolling out full firmware or driver updates at the push of a button. Excellent security features include IPv6 and IPsec encryption and authentication, and address filtering controls who does or doesn't have access to the device. The optional Data Security Kit tightens defenses further still, giving access to the most sophisticated encryption and data erasure facilities available.

Modular design means fewer wasted components and features. The ones that are there deliver superb printing and excellent productivity. These are very strong foundations to build from.
