Sharp MX-3050N/3070N/4070N

This line of all-in-one machines, particularly the Sharp MX-3050N, has already received a number of awards recognizing it as the best printer-copier-scanner of 2017. These color and black & white machines are what’s known as Sharp’s “Essentials Series”, and they truly live up to the name.

The Essentials Series combines value and ease-of-use, with the latest imaging and networking technologies currently available. They come with a number of groundbreaking features that many people will find advantageous for making their office more productive.

Their stunning color output, along with their unsurpassed reliable performance, ensure they will get the job done right every time. Not to mention Sharp’s proprietary security features give you the peace of mind knowing your documents will be protected from unauthorized personnel. All three models in the Essentials Series offer color and black & white printing modes, with speeds ranging from 30 ppm to 40 ppm.

In addition, the machines have been optimized for minimal power consumption. This means you can get the maximum in efficiency while drawing the least amount of energy.  

Here are some other notable features:

  • 100-sheet reversing document feeder: Scans both sides with a single pass, resulting in less chance of a paper jam.
  • 250 GB hard disk drive: Store thousands of documents right in the machine itself.
  • Manual stapling and stapleless stapling: Saves time when printing out multiple copies of large documents.
  • Dual-core multitasking controller: Get more done in less time.
  • High resolution, customizable touchscreen display: Extremely user-friendly, tablet-like interface.
  • Optional wireless connectivity for easy access and mobility: Connect to the internet wirelessly or with an ethernet cable, your choice.
  • Scan and print files from mobile devices: Sharpdesk Mobile allows you to print any document from your phone or tablet.
  • Standard Security with End-of-Lease feature: Ensure your documents stay secure, even if the machine changes hands at the end of your lease.

It should also be noted that if you have more than one of these machines in your office, they can all be connected wirelessly. This has been available on small machines for a long time but is a rare feature to find on large machines.


After already having received the 2017 BCLI ‘Highly Recommended’ and ‘Reliability’ awards, you can feel confident knowing you’re getting the absolute best printer-scanner-copier of 2017.
