Style. Simplicity. Performance.
Multifunctional A3 colour
for the smaller office
Make a difference with A3 colour
Introducing the compact and stylish 20 pages per minute
MX-2010U. Now you can print, copy and scan in full colour,
at full speed, with this surprisingly affordable MFP.
We’ve included all the major functions that every office
needs - plus robust security - but left it up to you to
choose your ideal configuration. So you get everything you
need, with no unnecessary extras, in the smallest, most
space-saving MFP in its class.
We’ve put a special emphasis on ease of use. The MX-2010U
has a 7.0” colour touch screen control panel with a stylus
pen for easy operation and every major function is intuitive
and obvious. There are even ‘easy grip’ handles on the
paper drawers.
It’s easy to manage, too, thanks to a Remote Access Control
facility for operating, configuring and troubleshooting the MFP
from across the office network.
More choice. Better value
Choose from a wide range of options
to create a custom configuration that’s
exactly right for you. A Reversing
Single Pass Feeder makes double-sided
scanning and copying quick and easy,
for example. And the optional internal
hard drive lets you store and reuse
documents. And that’s not all.
You can also specify a space-saving
inner finisher with offset stacking and
electronic sorting, extra security, a
useful fax capability and access to third
party software for automating routine
office tasks. Whatever you decide, you
only have to buy what you really need.

Kinder to the environment
The Energy Star-certified MX-2010U
uses Sharp’s green technology to support
your environmental objectives. Not only
does it take only 45 seconds or less to
warm up when you switch it on, but it
’learns’ your typical usage patterns
and automatically shuts off the power
during quiet times. Plus, we’ve used
energy-efficient LED lights in the scanner
for lower power consumption. These,
and other smart design features give this
MFP one of the lowest Typical Electrical
Consumption figures in its class.
The Energy Star-certified
MX-2010U is designed to fully
support your environmental
objectives.

Everyday Productivity
You’ll be surprised at how much more
you can do with the MX-2010U.
Unlike some MFPs which make you
slow down for colour, this powerful,
compact machine can print and copy
at the full 20 pages per minute. What’s
more, you can double the effective
speed by linking two together* and
sharing jobs between them.
Couple that with fast scan speeds (50
originals per minute) and a first page
out time of just 10.2 seconds** (less
for black and white pages), and you
have a device with more than enough
performance to satisfy the whole team.
The MX-2010U can add brilliant
colour to all your documents
without slowing down.
Enhanced efficiency
Complex jobs are quickly mastered
thanks to the optional 100-sheet
Reversing Single-Pass Feeder for rapid
doublesided scanning, and you get
electronic sorting for collating jobs and
keeping them separate. A Job Build
function* lets everyone manage high
volume copying with ease, and there’s
an optional large internal hard disk for
storing and retrieving documents.
Walk-up printing from a memory stick
is easy, thanks to two USB ports, and
you can directly print*** common PDF,
TIFF and JPEG files without taking the
time to use a printer driver.
It all adds up to a compact yet
surprisingly versatile MFP which will
boost productivity across the
whole team.
Optional 100-sheet Reversing
Single-Pass Feeder
Thumbnail views* keep you in control
USB ports for walk-up printing from a
memory stick
* Requires optional MX-HD10.
** Best achieved time based on A4 copy, long-edge feeding from 1st paper drawer, using document glass, when machine is ready, without Auto Colour Mode and Auto Colour Selection.
May vary depending on machine conditions and operating environment.
***Requires optional MX-PB14 and MX-HD10. PDF direct printing also requires MX-PK11.
Excellent image quality
We’ve made it as easy as possible to
get top quality from everything that you
print, copy or scan.
Newly formulated developer and toner
delivers enhanced image quality across a
useful range of media, and a colour print
resolution of 600 x 600 dpi, and 9600
x 600 dpi interpolated adds style and
impact to all of your documents.
Sharp I MX-2010U I Full Colour MFP
You don’t need to be a colour expert
to get the best out of the MX-2010U,
either. Its Auto Colour Mode takes care
of all the settings for you, producing
accurate, high quality copies with
faithfully reproduced colour, halftones
and fine detail.
There’s no fuss and no special features
to learn. Just page after page of smart,
professional documents for everyday
business use.

Perfomance enhancing technology
The new MX-2010U incorporates the key performance-enhancing technologies that you’ll find in Sharp’s other
award-winning MFPs, and more.
Full colour scanning is fast and versatile. Originals can be scanned into most popular formats then instantly sent to your
desktop, multiple email addresses, a folder on your network or FTP server, or simply a USB memory stick. Plus, there’s a handy
‘Scan to Me’ function for single-touch scanning direct to your own email address.
Unlocking information across
the enterprise
Now you can really put paper-based
information to full use, digitizing
documents and distributing them as
needed. Even high volume scanning
is effortless thanks to thoughtful
innovations that automatically stamp
originals as they’re scanned and skip
blank pages entirely.
To distribute your scans, simply browse
and select email destinations from a
list which is synchronised with your
corporate email address book. And if
you send a copy to your PC, you can
use Sharpdesk document management
software, which lets you store and
manage files of virtually any format,
and even combine them into new
multipage documents.
Convenient filing
With the optional 160GB hard drive
you can store jobs (neatly indexed
with thumbnail views) for later
reuse. Choose from Quick Filing for
temporary storage, Advanced Filing for
long-term archiving, or a Main Folder
for convenient workgroup sharing.
You can also store your documents in
private, password protected folders.
Highly configurable
Choose the configuration you need
today and add extra options as and
when you need them. Expand the
paper supply up to 2,100 sheets, add
Super G3 and internet fax, invest in
extra security, add an internal hard
drive, install a space-saving inner
finisher and hole punch:
It’s your choice.
The MX-2010U can also run the
latest Sharp OSA® (Open Systems
Architecture)* applications,
transforming it into an integrated
gateway to your networked business
applications. Different applications
can be used for automating manual
office tasks, such as capturing and
distributing documents, or to let you
access network applications and data
directly from the MFP’s front panel.
Security you can trust
The multi-layered security of the
MX-2010U works 24/7 to keep your
network and data safe from
all unauthorised access, intentional
or innocent. Standard security
measures include user authentication,
Confidential PIN Printing, SSL data
encryption, a secure network interface,
IEEE 802.1X compliance, IPsec
compatibility and password-protected
encrypted PDFs. But that’s not all.
The optional hard disk stores
documents and data. To safeguard
this information and for even greater
security, choose the optional Data
Security Kit, which encrypts and
securely erases data from the hard
disk and internal memory, at specified
intervals or on demand. The
kit also has a Document Control facility
to prevent unauthorised copying,
scanning, faxing and filing. In addition,
the standard Data Initialisation function
safely wipes all data from the
MX-2010U when it’s time to replace it.
* Requires optional MX-HD10 and MX-AMX2 and/or MX-AMX3.

and network.

Easy to manage
Although the MX-2010U is both powerful and versatile, it’s remarkably easy to manage. Every important setting can be
configured from a dedicated web page. A glance at the Job Status Screen on the control panel, for example, will show
you all copy and print jobs and their position in the queue. But that’s just one thoughtful idea. Other ease-of-use
innovations include:
Remote Access Control Panel
Remote Access Control Panel
Printer Status Monitor
Sharp Remote Device Manager
Support staff can remotely view and
operate the front panel display, taking
control, changing settings, fixing
problems and even providing ad hoc
training, without leaving their desks.
Lets you check the MFP’s operating
status from your PC, so you can make
sure there’s sufficient toner and paper
before you start a job. What’s more, as
soon as your documents are printed an
alert appears on your desktop, saving
wasted trips across the office.
Installed on your file server, Sharp
Remote Device Manager (SRDM)
gives you complete, real-time control
of your printers and MFPs through
any standard web browser. Error
reporting, technical support, driver
installation, firmware upgrades, printer
configuration: everything is easier and
more accessible.
Remote Diagnosis
Solve issues before they become
problems by monitoring your MFPs
via your web browser, and receive
timely email alerts when maintenance
is required.
