FAIRFIELD, N.J. – March 16, 2015 – KYOCERA Document Solutions America, Inc., one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced that Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) highly recommends the TASKalfa 7551ci and 3051ci color multifunctional products (MFPs), and the TASKalfa 5501i, 3501i, and 3010i monochrome MFPs. BLI, a leading provider of product intelligence for the imaging industry, awarded each of the five devices its Highly Recommended/Excellent rating for reliability. Both color MFPs earned additional Excellent commendations for value; the monochrome devices were also recognized with top marks in value as well and print quality.
In evaluating the color MFPs, BLI cited their “outstanding reliability,” and noted that their excellent features combined with a lower acquisition cost “make for an outstanding value.” Equally important, BLI noted that these color devices had “faster than average tested scan speeds” and “smaller than average color scan file sizes.”
The monochrome devices performed just as admirably. Also cited for their “excellent reliability,” these MFPs stood out for being feature rich compared to comparable models, and were lauded for their halftone range, extensive drum life, fast duplex scan speeds, and user-friendly control panels.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by Buyer’s Lab, especially in these key areas,” said Danielle Wolowitz, senior director of corporate marketing for KYOCERA Document Solutions America. “Our focus has always been, and remains, on reliability, value, and performance. The BLI tests validate our efforts. We’re delighted to receive this news, and look forward to passing it on to our customers and dealers.”
When conducting tests in all key performance areas, BLI found that these five Kyocera TASKalfa devices outperformed other MFPs in their respective classes, receiving top grades in reliability, value, ease of use, print drivers, scan functions, multitasking, print productivity, print quality, setup, utilities, and security features.
BLI is a respected independent provider of analytic information that buyers and IT directors trust to guide them when purchasing imaging equipment.
