MX-M265N / M315N / M356N
Full-Function Efficiency and Ease of Use
from an All-Around Player


Sharp’s MX-M265N / M315N / M356N delivers the ideal balance of high performance and exceptional ease of use. Four-in-one function and an array of user-friendly features make this B/W MFP a practical and productive addition to small or medium-size offices, where it can boost efficiency as the central document solution, and to larger workplaces, where it can quickly handle the diverse document demands of small workgroups.

User-Friendly Control Panel

The MX-M265N / M315N / M356N is equipped with a 7.0-inch WVGA touchscreen color LCD that provides easy navigation of MFP functions and settings. Displaying thumbnails* and up-close previews* of Document Filing* data files on the MFP’s LCD makes file searching easy and convenient. It also lets users confirm scan settings and other items before copying, scanning, or saving documents to the MFP’s hard disk. For added ease of use, two LED lamps—one red and the other green—on the control panel light up to notify users of machine/job status.

* Requires optional MX-HD15.


Multiple Distribution of Scanned Files

You can choose different ways to distribute your scanned documents: for example, send as an e-mail attachment, scan directly to an FTP server for storage, or scan to external memory.
