• BLI honours Brother and Lexmark with 2017 Line of the Year Awards

        • Buyers Laboratory (BLI) has announced the winners of the 2017 Printer/MFP Line of the Year awards. Brother International Corporation took home 2017 Monochrome Printer/MFP Line of the Year, whilst Lexmark International was awarded 2017 Color Printer/MFP Line of the Year.

          Presented once a year by BLI, the Line of the Year awards honour the manufacturers whose product line is determined to be the best overall based on the cumulative test results of all models tested in BLI’s rigorous two-month laboratory evaluation. The selections are made by BLI’s experienced staff of technicians and analysts after subjecting scores of devices from every major OEM to BLI’s exhaustive, comprehensive lab tests.

          All 10 Brother monochrome devices tested by BLI over the past year earned the ‘Highly Recommended’ rating for its outstanding overall performance throughout BLI’s lab testing, while eight of them also claimed individual ‘Pick’ awards. 

          Steve Feldstein, Director of Marketing for Brother International Corporation’s Business Laser & Scanner Products said, “Brother is committed to providing businesses with document imaging technology that addresses today’s ever evolving business challenges. We are honored to be selected for BLI’s 2017 Monochrome Printer/MFP Line of the Year. This recognition validates our continued focus on providing businesses with a wide range of printers and MFPs offering business-centric features and solutions while delivering an extremely low total cost of ownership.”

          All six Lexmark products tested for the Winter 2017 test season earned BLI’s ‘Highly Recommended’ rating and have gone on to win Pick awards. This was combined with four other previously tested models, three of which were Highly Recommended and received Pick awards.

          Allen Waugerman, Lexmark Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer said, “winning BLI’s Color Printer/MFP Line of the Year award further validates our commitment to providing our customers innovative products and solutions that help propel their business forward. By combining quality, reliability, speed and ease of use with a low total cost of ownership, our industry-leading color printers and MFPs deliver best-in-class results for our customers.”
