Don’t Let Size Fool You—This Compact A4 Solution Is Big on Function

Despite its stylishly streamlined appearance, the MX-C301W is an A4 powerhouse of functionality. Built for quality performance and four-in-one efficiency, the MX-C301W is packed with the same advanced features usually reserved for larger MFDs. That’s what makes it the ideal workflow enhancer for businesses of any type and size. In fact, this versatile solution works equally well in large offices as part of a network of A3/A4 MFDs and in smaller offices as the solo document performer.
