HP, Lexmark and Sharp Color A4 MFPs Put to the Test A Look at How They Compete on Paper

<p><i>By <a href="http://www.buyerslab.com/news/viewarticle.asp?article=70715">Marlene Orr</a>, Senior Printer Analyst, November 8, 2010</i></p> <p>In the past month or so, HP, Lexmark and Sharp have announced letter/legal-size (A4) color models in the all-important 40- to 50-ppm speed range. Targeted to mid-size and large workgroups, these models are designed for users who don’t need ledger-size (A3) output, but still want the robust functionality of a traditional MFP. While certainly priced lower than A3 color models in this speed range, these new offerings don’t skimp on features. The Lexmark and Sharp models are currently in BLI’s lab for testing and test reports will be available in the coming months, while the HP model is scheduled to arrive in late November.&#160; Here’s a sneak preview of how these models stack up.</p> <p>Size Matters: Packing A3 Functionality into an A4 Footprint</p> <p>Clearly, the A3 and A4 MFP categories have been converging since HP’s introduction of the game-changing 4345 MFP series in late 2004, with HP claiming this new category of product would “turn the copier industry on its head.” While its impact may not have been that drastic, the industry has certainly taken notice, and so have customers, realizing that traditional A3 copiers are not the only MFP options available. This A4 trend continues upward as smaller footprints, faster speeds, lower price tags and advanced functionality have allowed letter/legal-size, or “printer-based,” products to gain traction as viable replacements for single-function printers and, to a much lesser extent, older A3 copier-based devices. Each of the three competitors brings something new to the table, with two models replacing key models and the third acting as a new addition to the line.</p>

Sharp Introduces Frontier Scan Centric Series MFP Models For Small and Medium Size Document (A4) Scanning

<p>Mahwah, N.J., October 26, 2010 – Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) today introduces its Frontier Scan Centric Series MFPs, the first multi-function models on the market with selectable dual-feeding paths, for paper and “heavy media” such as business cards, drivers licenses and plastic ID cards, as well as the company’s proprietary Scan2 Technology. Ideally suited for small and medium-size document (A4) scanning applications, the MX-C402SC (color) and MX-B402SC (monochrome) models also offers a high capacity document feeder that provides a robust capacity of 100 sheets and ultra-fast color scanning speeds of 50 images per minute.</p> <p>Both models offer features that will save significant amounts of time, effort and cost over their lifetimes. Enabled with Scan2 Technology, the new models’ document feeder scans both sides of an original in a single pass without having to reverse it, increasing workflow efficiency and protecting one-of-a-kind documents from damage due to excess movement or misfeeds. In addition, their selectable dual-feeding path design enables users to scan a wider variety of documents, including hard ID cards – such as drivers’ licenses and insurance cards – checks and traditional paper documents up to legal size. The Card Shot feature (in copy and scan modes) reproduces the scanned images of both sides of the card and places them on a single page directly from the document feeder.</p> <p>“Our Frontier Scan Centric Series is designed for those customers in scan intensive environments, such as health care, mortgage, insurance and human resources offices, that require high performance and reliability for capturing data from non-traditional sources such as ID cards and drivers licenses, in addition to traditional paper documents,” said Mike Marusic, vice president of marketing and service, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “The dual scanning paths and Scan2 technology will dramatically increase the efficiency of workplaces that need to process high volumes of information.” </p>
