Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced today that it has received the coveted Monochrome Printer/MFP Line of the Year Award for the second consecutive year, along with five awards for Outstanding Achievement at the 2015 Buyers Laboratory (BLI) Winter Awards.[blockquote cite=”David SW Song, Samsung Electronics”] Samsung has been working relentlessly to develop printing solutions that not only increase productivity and efficiency, but are also cost effective for our consumers. We are delighted and honored that BLI has recognized our efforts in creating innovative products that will meet and exceed the high expectations of our consumers and enterprise customers.
In the Small to Mid-Size Workgroups category, the NFC-enabled ProXpress C2620DW was awarded the “Outstanding A4 color Printer” award, while the 2670FW won in the MFP category. The MultiXpress M5370LX received the award for “Outstanding A4 Monochrome MFP for Large Workgroups.”
BLI praised the models touchscreen interface, strong performance, and cost-efficiency. “One of the first MFPs on the market to do so, the MX5370 leverages Samsung’s tablet technology for the control panel to create a highly customizable, flexible device,” said BLI Senior Analyst for Printers/A4 MFPs Marlene Orr. “Add in superior performance and low cost of ownership for mid to high-volume users and you’ve got a winner.”[blockquote cite=”George Mikolay, BLI’s senior product editor for A3 Copiers/MFPs”] Not only did the Samsung MultiXpress X4300LX demonstrate excellent reliability over the course of its 120,000-impression test, it also offers color print quality that is superior to that of many competitors. And for those environments which output primarily in black and white, the device earned high marks across the board in both print and copy modes.

This model provides further benefits to consumers by reducing annual energy consumption with a range of energy-saving features. [blockquote cite=”Lisa Reider, Senior Product Editor, Scanners and Environmental at Buyers Laboratory”] An annual energy consumption rate of 48% that is almost half the average is a rarity for products we test here at BLI. Samsung is no stranger to energy-efficient devices, having earned five BLI energy efficiency awards in previous test seasons. The Xpress M2885FW serves as another excellent example of Samsung’s environmental strategy.
