The Sharp AR-M355N was BLI's pick of the year winner for “Outstanding Segment 3 Multifunctional Imaging System” in 2005. When tested, it performed excellent. The Sharp AR-M355N scored higher in efficiency during duplex mode than any of its competitors in the same class. It is exceptionally easy to setup and comes with a standard 40GB hard drive enabling it to support documents that are scanned and stored.
The Sharp AR-M355N prints with a multi-copy time of 35 pages-per-minute (letter-size) and first copies are in your hands in less than 5 seconds. Standard features include copying and printing with the option to upgrade to scanning and faxing. Paper capacity starts with the 500-sheet drawer and 100-sheet bypass tray; these numbers are expandable with the addition of optional paper trays to reach the 3,100-sheet max.
One of the other strengths on the Sharp AR-M355N is the consumables and their generous yields. The black toner cartridge (AR-455NT) has an estimated yield of 35,000 pages with 6 percent coverage. The drum (AR-455DR) has a projected yield of 200,000 pages; these attributes will keep you productive longer between replacements.
