Konica Minolta bizhub 454e, 654e and 754e Win BLI's Summer 2014 Pick Awards in the A3 Monochrome Category

SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - July 21, 2014) - Konica Minolta has earned three Buyers Lab (BLI) Pick awards for the Summer 2014 season for its monochrome bizhub 454e, bizhub 654e and bizhub 754e. Specifically, the bizhub 454e was awarded Outstanding 41- to 50-ppm A3 Monochrome Multi-Function Printer (MFP); the bizhub 654e was awarded Outstanding 61- to 70-ppm A3 Monochrome MFP; and the bizhub 754e was awarded Oustanding 71- to 80-ppm A3 Monochrome MFP.

BLI, the world's leading provider of intelligence on the document imaging and solutions industry, has generated tens of millions of impressions by putting devices from leading vendors to the test for more than 50 years. Its Pick awards, presented twice annually, acknowledge the hardware and software offerings that measure up as the best in BLI's rigorous and comprehensive lab testing, which assesses a wide range of the most important features and performance factors for buyers, including reliability, productivity, image quality, media handling, ease of use and more.

Based on BLI's report, all three MFPs performed flawlessly or near flawlessly over the course of BLI's extensive durability testing. Additionally, all three models were easy to use, featuring extremely well-designed control panels that give users a choice of three easily accessible interfaces, and support for dragging and dropping, pinch-to-zoom and the ability to rotate pages in a scan preview using multi-touch controls. Also contributing to ease of use is the My Tab feature in the print drivers, which allows users to configure a tab with their own frequently used features.

The models were further praised by BLI for their print quality, with all three earning excellent or very good ratings in all categories evaluated.

"Receiving three BLI Pick awards for our bizhub A3 monochrome MFPs demonstrates that, through our new range of devices, we are able to give our customers seamless integration, increased productivity and reduced costs, whatever their business needs are," said Jonathan Yeo, General Manager, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Asia Regional Headquarters.

The awards are a testament to Konica Minolta's bizhub A3 monochrome MFPs' leading position in the Mid-to High-Volume Category. Highly reliable, Konica Minolta's bizhub A3 monochrome MFPs possess unrivaled productivity and are the ideal MFPs for organizations looking to optimize their productivity, while being kind to the environment.
