Samsung printers win Buyers Lab awards
Amman, August 14, 2013
Samsung Electronics announced its mono, color laser and multi-function (MFP) Printers have won at the Buyers Laboratory (BLI) Pick awards.
The Xpress M2875/2825 series and ProXpress M4020ND printers won in the Performance category while the CLP-6260 FW, CLX-6260FD, and CLP-680 Series printers triumphed in the Environment category.
The printers received Outstanding Achievement awards, the independent authority’s highest accolade.
“Samsung’s mono, color laser and multi-function printers reflect our commitment to create powerful, attractive products that meet consumer demands for performance, cost efficient and energy efficiency,” said Joosang Eun, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics.
“We are honoured by the awards from BLI and we consider them excellent recognition for our continued effort in discovering new possibilities in printer innovation.”
Three of Samsung’s monochrome devices took home awards in the personal printer, personal MFP and A4 small workgroup printer categories, confirming the devices’ reliable, affordable and eco-friendly attributes.
“The ProXpress M4020ND is a great choice for small workgroup environments, offering a combination of speed and very good output quality and a low cost of ownership,” said Marlene Orr, BLI senior analyst for A4 MFPs and printers.
“For individuals in need of an affordable personal device, the compact Xpress M2825DW and Xpress M2875 Series help users save money and the environment, thanks to such ‘green’ features as standard duplexing and Samsung’s Easy Eco Driver.”
These new mono laser and multi-function printers feature fast print speeds, high quality images and cost savings for home offices, small and medium-sized business customers, a statement said.
The CLX-6260FW and CLX-6260FD models were commended for their significant energy savings when compared to competitor products. In BLI’s tests it was found that the two 25-ppm printers used 52 percent less power annually than comparable A4 color MFPs. The CLX-6260FW also has fast recovery times from sleep mode, allowing users to make the most of the printer’s energy-efficient sleep settings without sacrificing productivity or convenience.
“BLI’s ‘Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency’ award honors devices that exceed expectations and raise the bar in regards to energy consumption and general environmental performance,” said BLI test technician Joe Tischner.
“The CLX-6260FW earned this award for its substantially lower energy consumption when compared against its peers, as well as its advanced environmental feature set, which provides a more complete environmental solution for eco-conscious consumers.”
BLI’s environmental testing measures the energy consumed by document imaging products in all operating modes including energy-save, idle and sleep modes, as configured for a real-world office environment using a wired interface.
The CLX-6260FW comes with several environmentally-friendly features, including automatic duplexing, blank-page removal, toner-save mode, auto color mode and job review mode for print output.
BLI also awarded an Outstanding Achievement award to the Samsung CLP-680 Series for its environmental performance.
“Only the best of the best earn BLI’s ‘Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency’ award, and that covers the best energy and best overall performances,” said Lisa Reider, BLI’s senior product editor for Environmental Testing.
“And thanks to an energy rate 55 percent lower than average, a rich environmental feature set and faster than average recovery times, the Samsung CLP-680 Series fit all of our award criteria.” – TradeArabia News Service
