The MX-M453U blends exquisitely into the background thanks to its stylish textured surface. And it should only be a few hours until it's made itself a firm favourite with office workers, boasting not just print, but scan, copy and (optionally) fax facilities. The searing 45ppm print engine puts the first page out within 3.9 seconds, and uses 256-level greyscale to craft immaculate lettering in A4 or big-page 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 the engine well stocked in media. The 50opm scanning renders even the smallest details to perfection, while adding versatile file support, and Gigabit ethernet allows this model to hook up to just about any office network. The Sharp Open Systems Architecture reduces countless repetitive tasks to one-button procedures, and water-tight security controls maintain data safety.

Superb Print Engine
The superb print engine can achieve speeds of up to 45 pages per minute, and with the first sheet popping out within 3.9 seconds, you'll never be waiting too long for it to warm up. Speed can be doubled by allowing this model to share a job with a similarly-specified Sharp on the network, while the 20ppm A3 format gives your thoughts more room to breathe. The 600x600dpi resolution works in tandem with 256-level greyscale to produce some of the greatest clarity and definition seen yet in text and diagrams. The superb range of finishing options let you generate large quantities of immaculately crafted booklets, brochures and flyers. Documents up to 50 pages long can be saddle stitched, while 15-page works can be folded and 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 adds capacity.

Versatile Scanning
The MXM453U's impressive scan component uses the built-in Reversing Single Pass Feeder to achieve speeds of up to 50 originals per minute, and files can be transmitted directly to multiple email addresses, FTP servers and network folders, or converted to a number of flexible formats, including encrypted PDF and PDF/A files. The Scan to Me function sends any document straight to your registered e-mail address. The versatile copying facilities can mirror, repeat and zoom images, and you can even convert books and bound originals into pamphlet format. The optional fax facilities can work through SMTP, pushing down on costs while pushing up speed. Paperless fax operation cuts media bills.

Great Finishing Tools
The Sharp M453U can keep the print engine and finishing tools well fed with paper, and up to 1,100 sheets can be held as standard, including the 100-sheet multi-bypass tray. Larger workgroups can push this figure up to a truly impressive 5,600 sheets, adding as many as four further 500-sheet drawers plus a large-capacity 3,500-sheet tray. 1GB of memory is included as standard, and this gives the Sharp the ability to juggle large files with comfort. For the very busiest workloads, though, an additional 1GB is available. An 80GB hard drive is built in for additional storage. Network support is optional, with a fast Gigabit connection and PCL5e/6 support (Adobe PS3 can also be added) available.

Fantastic Control
Ease of use is guaranteed by the M453U's ever-welcoming 8.1in touch screen interface, and the bright Sharpdesk application allows you to organise, annotate and convert files in a jiffy. The Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture) maximises productivity, letting 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 will enjoy the versatile remote access options, letting them control and monitor all devices from the one screen - even rolling out driver and firmware updates across the entire fleet. Security is rigorous, and IPv6 and IPsec encrypt and authenticate traffic, while 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. Companies with a need for the very best encryption and data erasure techniques can invest in the Data Security Kit.

Attractive both in and out, this MFD delivers fast 45ppm mono prints and 50opm scans, and still finds room for great paper handling and high security.
