Sharp AR-M257 Review
With a large 8.1 inch touch screen and features such as an ID card shot function, the Sharp AR-M257 is certainly equipped with all the bells and whistles one would expect in a current document processing machine. The unit’s overall performance speeds leave a little to be desired but, overall, the unit is solid throughout.
While the Sharp AR-M257 is, at heart, a copy machine, it is also capable of executing PC prints and, with an optional Super G3 Fax package, sending and receiving faxes over the phone line. The unit is built to handle large format paper sized up to 11 x 17 inches, though printing to this speed will reduce the already mediocre print speed down to 13 pages or copies per minute.
The Sharp AR-M257’s overall print and copy speed is right on the fence between being acceptable and just plain too slow. At 25 pages per minute for both standard PC printing and stand alone copying, the device is a little behind the times when it comes to the area of raw performance. Users do have the option of purchasing the device’s sister unit, the Sharp AR-M317, that can pull off 31 letter sized copies per minute and 17 oversized copies per minute, but this boost in speed also comes with an increase in price.
