The MX-M453N is no generic beige box, boasting a textured surface and chic black control panel that makes it one of the neatest and most aesthetically pleasing items in the modern office. And its features set looks every bit as ravishing, engaging the business mind with multfunctional print, scan, copy and (optional) fax facilities. The 45ppm print engine turns out beautifully-formed pages in just 3.9 seconds, and can jump up to A3 output for the most breathtaking output of all. Optional finishing devices saddle-stitch, hole-punch and bi-fold to create a rich pageant of brochures, leaflets and flyers, and up to 5,600-sheet paper handling keeps print volume at high levels. The 70opm scanner teams flawless reproduction with flexible file format support, while the Gigabit connection slots easily into most office networks. The Sharp Open Systems Architecture reduces vast sets of instructions to single-button tasks, and maximum security features maintain total safety at all times.

Swift-Footed Print Engine
The print engine is a swift-footed version that can reach speeds of 45 pages per minute in A4, and can turn out the first sheet in a mere 3.9 seconds. The 20ppm A3 mode is there for those jobs that demand the maximum impact. Overall speeds can be as much as doubled by linking the MX-M453N in tandem with a similar Sharp on the network, allowing both machines to work on the same print job. At the end of all of this is the searing 1200x1200dpi resolution, which works with the 256-level greyscale to generate finely-sculpted text and pristine diagrams and lines. You can then let the finishing devices go to work on the finished prints, saddle-stitching, stapling, hole punching and bi-folding them to craft large quantities of immaculate brochures, booklets and flyers.

Brilliantly Reproduced Scans
The Sharp M453N's scan component grabs the attention immediately, gelling with the 100-sheet Duplex Single Pass Feeder to turn out a stunning 70 originals every minute. The service doesn't end with the brilliantly reproduced scans, though, and finished output can be seamlessly delivered to multiple email addresses, FTP servers and network folders, or converted to a variety of flexible formats that include encrypted PDF and PDF/A files. The sophisticated copy facilities give you a choice of ways in which data can be displayed, and a selection of different exposure modes allow you to unlock the very best results. The optional fax facilities harness the power of SMTP to drive up speeds while slashing telephone bills.

Amazing Paper Handling
The MXM453N needs plenty of juice, and the amazing paper handling duly obliges. Out of the box it takes 1,100 sheets, putting together two 500-sheet drawers and a 100-sheet multi-bypass tray. Should your workgroup have greater demands, this can be pushed all the way up to a formidable 5,600 with the addition of two further 500-sheet drawers plus a large-capacity 3,500-sheet tray. 1GB of RAM is included as standard, which should give most companies ample room to manipulate numerous large image-rich files. This can be boosted to 2GB for the busiest offices. An 80GB hard drive is built in for additional storage, and amongst other functions, this can store print jobs for future use so that you don't have to load in the file from fresh every time. Top-grade networking is provided through the Gigabit connection. PCL5e/6 is supported as standard, with Adobe PS3 available as an option.

Eliminate Tedious Tasks
Sharp places great importance on ease of use, and the sizeable 8.5in touch screen furnishes you with one of the most comfortable and flexible interfaces around. You can even bolt on an optional external keyboard for faster typing. The Sharpdesk application allows for adept organisation, annotation and conversion of files, while the Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture) lets you program repetitive tasks (form filling, storing documents etc..) so that entire sets of instructions can be carried out with a single button. Managers can remotely monitor and update all devices from a single screen, and can even control individual machines directly from their control panel without needing to be in the same room. The high-calibre security features include IPv6 and IPsec encryption and authentication, while address filtering can 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. The optional Data Security Kit is there to provide the very best encryption and data erasure on the market.

A scintillating model that thrills with its specifications list, but also looks pleasing externally, the Sharp's real strength is in its spectacular printing, scanning, and meaty paper handling. All of this is topped off by secure defenses that leave little to chance.
