DataMaster Lab fives 4.5/5 stars to Sharp MFPs

14 January 2019

The SHARP MX-3050, MX-3550 and MX-4050 range of color multifunction printers has been through all the DataMaster Lab tests and evaluations.  We are pleased to announce that it has obtained the very high rating of 4.5/5 stars.

There were very good results on all the axes that we study: productivity, quality and usability.
The print quality is excellent, especially on photos and images.
These machines proved to be very simple to use. The interface is large, clear and intuitive and customizable too.  The printer driver is also very well designed and easy to use.
In duplex mode the series achieved more than 110% of its A4 rated speed and more than 120% with A3. The use of thick stocks slows these machines down much less than most competing products.
More details on these machines' usability, functions, print quality and flexibility are available on DMO from
DataMaster Lab's analyses and assessments are completely independent.  Five-star certificates are extremely rare.  To attain five stars, not only must the equipment under test demonstrate an excellent performance in most categories, but must have no major weakness in any of the evaluation criteria.  
Machines' evaluation certificates and the corresponding rosette badges (as well as those for other machines in the range with the same print engine, plus any rebadged machines sold by other brands) can all be downloaded for FREE.
Their radar charts, and the detailed results of the productivity tests are available on our benchmarking platform DMO which is available to you by subscription.
