With its attractive textured surface and polished dark control panel, the MX-M363U is a far cry from the days of printers being ugly slabs of beige plastic. But the real beauty of this machine comes from inside, with a features set that includes the ability to scan, copy and, as an option, fax. The 36ppm print engine is stunning, putting the first page out within 4.6 seconds, and using 256-level greyscale to conjure up perfectly-formed lettering and depth in either A4 or breathtaking A3. The finishing options let you saddle-stitch, bi-fold and hole-punch for professional-grade booklets, brochures and flyers, and 5,600-sheet paper handling keeps media flowing through. The 50opm scanning mixes exquisite detail reproduction with versatile file support, and Gigabit networking makes for a smooth transition to any office. The Sharp Open Systems Architecture reduces countless repetitive tasks to one-button procedures, and exemplary security controls keep data safe.

Superb Finishers
The print engine is scorching, and the 36 pages per minute speed (with the first sheet out within 4.6 seconds) in A4 can be doubled by allowing the M363U to share its job with a similarly specified Sharp elsewhere on the network. The larger A3 format (available at 17ppm) is also available, and gives you that extra room in which to construct your message. The 600x600dpi resolution melds with 256-level greyscale to produce wonderful depth that adds body and clarity to characters and lines. Finishing options are great as well, allowing you to create large quantities of perfectly assembled booklets, brochures and flyers. Documents up to 50 pages long can be saddle stitched, while 15-page works can be stapled. Bi-Folding can fold individual pages in half, even up to A3 size, and a range of hole punching facilities are available. A 4,000-sheet finisher is available to add capacity.

Versatile Scanning
Scanning can run at up to 50 originals per minute, thanks to the inclusion of a Reversing Single Pass Feeder, and files can be sent directly to multiple email addresses, FTP servers and network folders, or converted to a variety of formats, including encrypted PDF and PDF/A files. The Scan to Me function instantly sends the document to your registered e-mail address. The versatile copying lets you mirror, repeat and zoom images, and you can even convert books and bound originals into pamphlet format. The optional fax facilities use SMTP to increase speed while decreasing cost, and its paperless system also cuts the bills.

Powerful Paper Handling
Powerful paper handling keeps the MXM363U well stocked in media. 1,100 sheets can be held as standard, including the 100-sheet multi-bypass tray, but this figure can be increased to a more emphatic 5,600 sheets with the addition of four further 500-sheet drawers plus a large-capacity 3,500-sheet tray. 1GB of memory as standard allows the Sharp to manipulate multiple large files, and an additional 1GB is available for workgroups with heavier requirements. An 80GB hard drive is built in for additional storage. Network support can be added to the Sharp as an option, with a fast Gigabit connection and PCL5e/6 support (Adobe PS3 can also be added) available.

High Security
Everything is underpinned by the clear 8.1in touch screen interface, while the friendly Sharpdesk application makes it easy to organise, annotate and convert files. The OSA (Open Systems Architecture) lets you program repetitive tasks (form filling, storing documents etc..) so that entire sets of instructions can be carried out at the touch of a button. Managers can remotely monitor and manage all MFDs from one screen, even rolling out driver and firmware updates across the entire fleet. IPv6 and IPsec support encrypt and authenticate traffic, for maximum security, and address filtering lets you control who does or doesn't have access to the device. Confidential files can be password protected, and held in the memory until the user is ready to print them out. Even more sophisticated encryption and erasure is available with the optional Data Security Kit.

The ever-stylish Sharp also has hardware specifications to catch the eye, impressing with 36ppm mono prints and 50opm scanning as well as searing security and meaty paper handling and finishing.
