According to Sharp, the new MFPs (MX-4111FN, MX-4110FN, MX-5111FN and MX-5110FN) are more eco-friendly than their predecessor (the MX-4101FN introduced in 2008), as power consumption is reduced by 65 percent, which Sharp says is due to a shorter warm-up time and lower power consumption (1 watt) when in standby mode.
