Sharp And Xerox Take Top BLI Honours For Best 21- to 40-PPM Colour Copier MFPs

June, 2009 – Wokingham (UK) – Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI), theworld’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging products andsolutions, today announced its Spring 2009 “Pick” winners honouringoutstanding copier MFPs from Sharp and Xerox in the 21- to 30-ppm speedrange and 31- to 40-ppm speed range. BLI’s semi-annual “Pick” awardsare given to the hardware and software offerings that measure up as thebest in BLI’s comprehensive evaluations, which assess a wide range ofthe most important features and performance factors for buyers.

Pair Of Sharps Are Aces

Two Sharp models based on the same highly reliable engine were bothhonoured for the outstanding performances they turned in during BLI’srigorous two-month lab test. At 26 ppm and 31 ppm, respectively, theSharp MX-2600N and MX-3100N both scored very high marks in nearly allaspects of performance.
Recipients of BLI’s “HighlyRecommended” rating, both offer very good print quality in both blackand colour. They also excel in areas of importance to IT professionals,with simple procedures for setup on the network, easy to use printdrivers, comprehensive feedback to workstations and an excellentoffering of security features. “While both of these Sharp models offervery good print quality and ease of use, their exceptional scanfunctionality in particular places them ahead of many of theircompetitors,” said BLI Managing Editor Daria Hoffman.
“Sharp offers thesedistinctively designed models with an optional retractable keyboardthat makes it easy for users to enter e-mail addresses and the indexingdata that makes retrieving documents much easier,” said Hoffman. Inaddition, the units enable scanning to multiple different types ofdestinations in a single operation, show a preview of the scanned imageand enable integration with a range of applications via OSA.
“Sharp is very pleased toreceive these prestigious BLI ‘Pick’ awards for the MX-2600N andMX-3100N,” said Keiichi Katsuta, President of the Division SharpInformation Systems Europe. “The MX-2600N and MX-3100N colour workgroupdocument systems represent the best in performance, features andreliability in the low- to mid-volume workgroup category with theirleading technology innovations, such as an integrated retractablekeyboard, high-resolution touch-screen display, dual-head scanning andSharp OSA technology.”
Innovation, Image Quality Help Xerox Earn “Picks” In Business Colour
Demonstrating outstanding reliability over the course of their105,000-impression durability tests, the Xerox WorkCentre 7425, 7428and 7435 have earned Spring 2009 BLI “Pick” awards in their respectivespeed ranges.
Chief among the enhancementsover their predecessors is Xerox’s newly-developed LED print headtechnology. In addition to allowing the devices to be more compact,with fewer moving parts, the LED technology helps to achieve lowerpower consumption.
In addition to theirexcellent reliability, the three Xerox models offer image quality imagequality superior to that of most other competitive models evaluated,with excellent ratings for both colour business graphics and colourphotographic output in print mode, as well as for most aspects ofquality in black print. Even in copy mode, image quality was very goodoverall in both colour and black.
“Productivity was alsostrong in a number of key areas for all three units, including thecolour and black job stream tests, which simulate the type of trafficdevices experience in a real-world, multi-user environment,” said BLIAssignments Editor George Mikolay. The ease of programming is alsoexceptional, both from the control panel and from the bidirectionalprint drivers, which provide highly detailed consumables feedback tousers. Another strength of these models is that the drums and wastetoner container are user replaceable, which eliminates the downtimethat would otherwise be required for service to replace thesecomponents.
All three devices areEIP-enabled, allowing the device to integrate easily with third-partyworkflow applications to simplify tasks such as accounting and documentmanagement. For example, DocuShare Express 6 turns paper documents intoelectronic files that can be archived, searched, accessed remotely andcollaborated upon.
Also noteworthy are thatmaximum paper capacities are the highest or among the highest for eachmodel’s competitive group, and paper weights up to 140-lb. index can beaccommodated through the majority of paper trays.
“The Xerox WorkCentre 7400colour multifunction series delivers professional-quality colour andunmatched performance,” said Mark Boyt, Manager, Office ProductMarketing, Xerox Europe. “These compact new devices have beenengineered with savings in mind; savings on time, energy, runningcosts, space, downtime and environmental impact. This recognitionreinforces Xerox’s position as a leader in office colour printing.”
Stay tuned for upcoming Buyers Lab “Pick” award announcements in the following categories:
June 5: 41- to 75-ppm Copier MFPs
June 8: Monochrome Printers
June 10: Colour Printers
