With speed, performance,
and reliability, the new
Sharp FO-4400 Super G3
Workgroup Facsimile really
gets things moving.
FLEXIBLE PAPER SUPPLY
The Sharp FO-4400 Super G3 Workgroup Facsimile comes
standard with a 250-sheet paper supply that can be easily
expanded to 750 sheets
with the optional 500-sheet
paper drawer. And, with
letter/legal size adjustability
in either tray, the FO-4400
facsimile can easily meet the
needs of any busy office.
FLASH MEMORY PROVIDES
RELIABLE DOCUMENT STORAGE
Sharp’s flash memory ensures that your documents will be
stored safely in the event of a power failure. The FO-4400
comes standard with 2 MB of flash memory, which can store
up to 125 pages.* As your business needs grow, you can
expand the memory to up to 10 MB, for a total of up
to 625 pages.*
FAX SEPARATOR FEATURE
With the optional 500-sheet paper drawer, the FO-4400
also offers an innovative fax separator feature that can insert
a colored sheet of paper between fax receptions for ease of
separation. This feature also reduces the amount of time
spent sorting through a stack of faxes.
DUPLEX SCANNING SAVES TIME AND MONEY
Standard duplex scanning
allows users to easily transmit
two-sided documents—without
having to make a trip to the copier
first to separate the pages. The
FO-4400 scans both sides, then
transmits the pages in the correct order.
INTELLIGENT DOCUMENT HANDLING
The FO-4400 engine design
allows all received documents to
be printed face down. This means
multiple page fax receptions are
always printed in the correct
order, so there’s no need to
reshuffle the pages when you
retrieve them from the exit tray.
EASY-TO-READ TILTED STATUS DISPLAY
The FO-4400 facsimile features a
7" x 3.2" ergonomic status display to
make reading easier. And, with a user
adjustable viewing angle of up to
65 degrees, the status display can be
easily positioned for optimum clarity.

FIRST-IN FIRST-OUT MEMORY MANAGEMENT
With First-In First-Out memory management, multiple page
receptions are printed in real time, page-by-page, instead
of receiving the entire document into memory first. This
technique uses a much smaller amount of memory, leaving
more memory available for subsequent jobs.

USER FRIENDLY SUPPLIES
The drop-in loading design of the FO-4400 makes changing
toner and drum supplies clean and simple. And, with
color-coded cartridges, you’ll always know the right way
to install them.

Keep your business moving at top speed with Sharp’s F.A.S.T.
