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
