Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI), an independent office-equipment testing lab and business consumer advocate, has awarded four â€œPick of the Yearâ€ awards to Canon USA.
BLI awarded Canon for its Most Outstanding Monochrome MFP (multifunctional printers) Product Line of 2006, Outstanding Segment 6 Monochrome MFP. It also gave Canon two awards for Outstanding Segment 3 Monochrome MFP.
BLI says their awards are based on exhaustive tests that take two months to complete, including an extensive durability test during which each unit is run at the manufacturerâ€™s maximum recommended monthly volume. Products that have provided the most outstanding performances in BLIâ€™s exhaustive lab tests get the â€œPick of the Yearâ€ awards.
Canonâ€™s monochrome MFPs received the Line of the Year award for â€œMost Outstanding Monochrome MFP Product Line of 2006â€, recognizing the strength of Canon’s consistent monochrome imageRUNNER product line, according to BLI.
