15 March 2010

KYOCERA MITA is celebrating after receiving a range of product awards from testing houses Buyers Laboratory Inc (BLI) and The Office Products Analyst (OPA). The awards highlight KYOCERA MITA’s commitment to excellent product functionality, performance and value for money.

BLI awards recognise excellent product performance

BLI gave the FS-4020DN mono laser printer its coveted “Pick of the Year” award praising the device’s faultless performance during the 125,000 page reliability test and above average ease of use and management. Particular mention was made of the low cost per page of the FS-4020DN, “approximately 50 per cent lower than the average of the competitive group.” The FS-4020DN was reviewed at BLI European testing laboratory in the UK.

In the desktop category the FS-1128MFP has achieved a “Highly Recommended” rating, with reviewers noting its high reliability in extended test conditions and faster than average warm-up time from energy save mode.

BLI also recognised the high productivity and functionality of KYOCERA MITA’s TASKalfa range of colour multifunctional devices. The TASKalfa 400ci was given 4.5 Stars, with the reviewers praising the machine’s excellent output quality in both print and copy modes, and its high drum yields, which are almost triple the average yield for its competitive group. The TASKalfa 250ci and TASKalfa 300ci were both awarded 4 Stars in recognition of their superior value and outstanding efficiency. The TASKalfa 500ci also received four stars, with particular emphasis placed on the device’s ease of use and excellent print quality.

Industry Analysts awards highlight value for money

The Office Product Analyst, a publication of Industry Analysts Inc, conducts a detailed annual survey of office printers to determine which products offer the best overall value in terms of purchase price and running costs. This year OPA has awarded “Excellent Value” ratings to three KYOCERA colour printers: The FS-C5100DN was recognised for having the lowest initial purchase price of all printers in the review, while the
FS-C5200DN and FS-C5300DN were recognised for having some of the lowest monthly running costs on the market.
