  • Konica Minolta MFP range wins Buyers Lab award

    Konica Minolta’s A3 MFP range has won the Buyers Lab (BLI) Line of the Year Award for the third year in a row.

    For the third consecutive year, Konica Minolta’s A3 MFP range has been proven best overall for reliability, image quality, ease of use and productivity,  based on the Buyers Lab (BLI) rigorous two month long evaluation.

    “We are very proud of winning this prestigious BLI award again,” said Stevan Caldwell (pictured), national marketing manager at Konica Minolta. “The fact we are the only company to achieve this record in the past decade makes it an even more significant result.”

    Each year Buyers Lab, the leading global provider of information and testing services to the document-imaging industry, acknowledges the vendor whose product line is best, based on a thorough investigation.

    “Konica Minolta is tough to beat,” said George Mikolay, BLI’s senior product editor of A3/Copier MFPs. “The current lineup of A3 MFPs includes 12 products that have earned Pick Awards – more than any other vendor – and 14 products that have received Highly Recommended ratings. It has Picks in in virtually every speed band up to 75 ppm in both colour and black and white.”

    BLI’s Managing Editor, Daria Hoffmann, said, “from top to bottom, Konica Minolta has the best reliability record of all eligible vendors. The fact that Konica Minolta submits the majority of its units for testing as soon as they are introduced shows that it believes in its products and that belief is continually backed up by their performance in the lab.”

    BLI Manager of Laboratory Testing, Pete Emory, said, “whether with its award-winning My Tab for print driver customization, or by being the first manufacturer to offer biometric authentication, Konica Minolta continues to innovate.”
