Very nice, inexpensive copier for home office and small office use.

BillH, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: We've had this AL-1631 for nine (9) years. It's used for copying at home. We've made hundreds of copies on the machine. Most are flawless and clear. Like any copier, you have to clean the corona wire from time to time when copies come out smudged or streaked. A small tool and instructions are included. It's very easy to do.

Not a bad copier

S. Farr, Amazon
15 April 2009
  • Summary: I have worked in offices for 34 years as office manager, secretary, etc., and I have used a multitude of copiers over these years including the big Xerox copiers that can nearly produce books to the little desk top copiers that printed 1 page at a time and took forever. Consider what you are buying a copier for.

Poor Longevity

C. Pham, Amazon
7 May 2008
  • Summary: I have a dental office; so the copier gets occasional use--about maybe 10 copies per day. In the beginning, the quality of the copies is good, but the start up time is consuming. After two years, the quality of the copies declined--the ends of the page were illegible. Finding someone to service the machine was difficult. There were long waits on the phone with Sharp customer service.

Piece of CRAP .Sharp= LEMON. *Gorgeous Paperweight*

Barely There "Never regret anything that made..., Amazon
26 December 2007
  • Summary: IN a word..this is a LEMON. sharp=lemon Hey I bought this NEW unit for making just a few home copies. Quit...after fifty copies. Cost $140 plus shipping to fix. I picked this unit based upon the recommendation of a copier repair person. He said this Sharp AL 1631 was a terrific reliable unit. He said he refills toners on other sharp copiers and this should have a refillable toner soon. ON THAT I HAVE NO CLUE. This piece of crap made less than 50 copies and quit.

Sharp service STINKS

J. Giordano, Amazon
26 January 2007
  • Summary: Sharp has THE WORST service I have ever dealt with. I had the AL-1551, and when I bought it I was told warranty would pay for repairs. What they instead do is send you a refurbished.... the refurbished I got was worse that the broken one I had. I had to sue them to get my machine fixed, which only needed a plastic piece in the document feeder (probably cost them $5 in parts).

Fine copier for the money.

Samuel C. Mcdonald "Music Lover", Amazon
12 November 2006
  • Summary: We had an old Sharp which served us well for years until its final breakdown. Parts were hard to get, and it was very old and heavy. We decided to get a new copier and focused on Sharp again. The AL-1631 arrived promptly and worked well right out of the box. Though we have had it only one week, we are very happy with it. It starts up quickly and makes excellent copies. I recommend shopping around for price as it varies quite a bit.

Basic and functional so far...

SF Office Manager, Amazon
19 July 2006
  • Summary: We are a small business and use the AL-1631 for small internal copy jobs (less than 20 pages) 1-4 times a week. We purchased this copier because our old Canon's document feeder died. It has a short delay before the first copy comes out - maybe 15 seconds. A series of sounds let you know when it is waking up from energy save mode.

Disappointed in Sharp

Paul D. Woolfrey "Paul", Amazon
8 May 2006
  • Summary: Just got off the phone with Sharp. Have had a Sharp AL-1551CS for 2 years. Worked great then the Automatic Document Feeder broke. Called and asked if I could buy a new ADF. No way. For $275 plus shipping they will send me a refurbished copier but they do not release parts to the public. Guess I am now a loyal Sony or Canon cusotmer.

Slow Warm-up; Marks on Copies from Document Feeder

Jingjing, Amazon
30 January 2006
  • Summary: Machine is slow to warm up: at least 30-40 seconds for first copy. To use the by-pass tray, must first hit button on control panel. To return to either single feed or document feeder, must hit the button again. The document feeder works very well, but have been unable to "clean" the transfer charger, resulting in streaks on documents sent through the document feeder.
