A good way to waste your time and money!


If you have a lot of money and time to waste, buy this item. You will thank me for it.

Waste of Money and Time

Poor quality, poor performance, bad copier and the worst customer support/repair department

Noisy, Slow, Yuck!


Will make one appreciate carbon paper and an IBM Selectric. Sharp needs to stick with LCD's.

It will produce a copy

Noisy - every 12 seconds it makes a clickety-click clack series of sounds that eventually causes excruciating mental anguish similar to a migraine . Slow, slow, slow, slow

Medium foot-print; Decent copy and print speeds; Affordable

Lacks network capability; no fax

Sharp AL-2030 Digital Laser Copier/Printer


Overall I think that the copier is good enough for small business, it does copy very well and has enough feature to support us. Defintely a rebuy if there is a chance to. Highly recommended.

Compact, easy to use, economical. I have one of the Sharp copier before, just oldr model and this upgrade is definitely a plus with printing feature. Copying is usually fast and clear

Lack of the network capability, but for that feature you must spend some more money. Other disadvantage is the cost of the toner sometimes unreasonable
