Unprecedented Flexibility
Stylishly compact and designed for high performance, the MX-C300W offers built-in wireless LAN connectivity, making it easy to
put this colour MFP to work in a variety of settings. The MX-C300W can connect wirelessly to any notebook PC, smartphone, and
tablet that has wireless LAN connectivity. This lets users conveniently initiate MFP printing/scanning via their mobile devices
from almost anywhere in the workplace and also allows flexible placement of the MFP.

Built-In Wireless Connections
The MX-C300W offers ultra-handy wireless access via two easy modes: infrastructure mode and access point mode. These two modes enable
the MFP to accommodate various user-environment factors, such as installation location and the type of LAN available.
Access point mode
Infrastructure mode
Wireless LAN
Infrastructure mode wirelessly connects the MFP to notebook PCs and
other mobile devices via a commercially available wireless LAN router.
This ensures convenient access to the MFP even from places where
wired LAN is not available.
Access point mode wirelessly connects a LAN-wired MFP to notebook PCs
and other mobile devices without going through a wireless LAN router. The
MFP can be accessed via both a wired connection and a wireless connection.
Note: External networks cannot be accessed via the MFP. Up to five mobile
devices can be wirelessly connected to the MFP at the same time.
Sharpdesk Mobile*
Sharpdesk Mobile is a mobile print/scan application that combines the convenience of mobile devices and the efficiency of Sharp MFPs to make
conducting business on the go easier than ever. Documents scanned on a Sharp MFP can be sent to a mobile device to preview and save.
Documents saved on a mobile device can be printed out on the MFP, sent as e-mail attachments, or used in other applications.
* Availability varies by country/region. For details, see the Sharpdesk Mobile support website: http://sharp-world.com/products/copier/docu_solutions/mobile/sharpdesk_mobile/
Efficient Colour and B/W Output
The MX-C300W delivers a fast output of 30 cpm/ppm* in full colour
and in B/W. And the first copy comes out in just 10 seconds in B/W
and 18 seconds in full colour to save valuable time when
performing multiple short-run jobs. A warm-up time of just 29
seconds brings added efficiency.
* A4 (8 1/2" x 11"), short-edge feeding
Superb Image Quality
Sharp’s latest 3rd-generation Mycrostoner-HG (High Grade) and a
dual-component developer system combine to provide breathtaking
image quality. The toner’s smaller particle size reduces graininess
and enables clear reproduction of fine lines, fine text, and halftone
Built-In Duplex Module and RSPF
The MX-C300W can make two-sided copies and printouts using its
built-in stackless duplex module, effectively reducing paper costs
as well as saving filing space.
Duplex copying is even more
effective when the duplex module
is used together with the
standard-equipped 50-sheet RSPF
(reversing single pass feeder).

Direct Printing
The MX-C300W can print PDF, TIFF, and JPEG files
without using the printer driver. And there’s a USB
port beneath the control panel, which comes in
handy when printing data directly from USB memory
devices—an indispensable function for users who
are in a hurry or who want quick machine access without a PC.
ID Card Copy
The MX-C300W has a
dedicated key for easy
copying of both sides of a
card (ID cards, credit cards,
etc.) onto a single page.

Full-Colour Network Scanning
Sharpdesk is an original Sharp application that provides integrated
desktop management of documents in over 200 file formats,
including scanned images and documents created with popular
applications such as Word. With Sharpdesk, documents can be
organised, edited, searched, and distributed with simple
drag-and-drop operation. Features include thumbnail viewing,
annotation tools for paper-free proofreading, optical character
recognition, the ability to combine different types of files into a
single document, and more.
The MX-C300W works as a full-colour network scanner and
supports TIFF, PDF, and JPEG file formats. Converting any type of
paper-based document into an editable digital file is as easy as
making a copy.
Multiple Distribution of Scanned Files
You can choose different ways to distribute your scanned
documents: for example, send as an e-mail attachment or scan
directly to an FTP server for storage.
FTP server
Network folder
External memory
Super G3 fax
Business Card Scanning
Scanned image
The MX-C300W can easily scan
business cards* with its RSPF
and can be used with
commercially available business
card scan software to create
business card databases.
* Image Compression Tool for converting images into compact PDF files
The MX-C300W also works as a 33.6 Kbps Super G3 fax machine
capable of high-speed transmission. The RSPF and duplex module
enable duplex transmission/reception, allowing two-sided
documents to be faxed in the proper order and incoming faxes to be
printed on both sides of the paper.
LDAP Support
Built-in LDAP (lightweight directory access protocol) support
eliminates the need to enter or register full addresses. Entering just
the first few letters of a recipient’s name prompts the MX-C300W to
display a list of possible matches from your company’s LDAP
server. Selected addresses can be stored to the MX-C300W’s
address book.
Scanner Program Keys on the control panel enable users to
register frequently used scan settings and destinations for easy,
one-touch recall.
PC-Fax E-mail
Speedy Faxing

Versatile Fax Functions
• PC-Fax lets you send documents created on a PC directly to a
recipient’s fax machine via a phone line without printing to paper
• Mixed size original scanning automatically distinguishes
documents of mixed sizes fed through the RSPF
• Fax destination confirmation allows users to reconfirm fax
numbers before sending to prevent transmission errors
• Inbound routing lets you check incoming faxes via a network
folder (SMB) before printing them out
• Speed dial keys register up to 300 numbers
Reliable Security
Easy-To-Use Control Panel
• IPsec (IP security) data encryption technology ensures
secure network communications.
Power Save Key
LCD with Backlight
• User authentication covering up to 30 users prevents
unauthorised MFP use by requiring access
• Retained data can be initialised when it’s time to
replace the MFP, preventing the leakage of
confidential information.
