Canon USA Bags ‘Pick of the Year’ Awards from BLI

Canon MultiFunctional Printers

Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI), an independent office-equipment testing lab and business consumer advocate, has awarded four “Pick of the Year” 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 manufacturer’s maximum recommended monthly volume. Products that have provided the most outstanding performances in BLI’s exhaustive lab tests get the “Pick of the Year” awards.

Canon’s monochrome MFPs received the Line of the Year award for “Most Outstanding Monochrome MFP Product Line of 2006”, recognizing the strength of Canon’s consistent monochrome imageRUNNER product line, according to BLI.
