TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Toshiba Tec Corporation (TOKYO:6588) today announced that its latest colour Multi-function peripherals (MFP), the e-STUDIO5005AC received the Buyers Laboratory LLC’s (BLI) “Highly Recommended” and “Highly Reliable” rating. BLI is the leading independent analytical information provider, and from its two-month, 210,000 impression durability test, the company's award-winning MFP performed extremely well in reliability, ease of use and security features.
The leading independent analytics provider noted the e-STUDIO5005AC’s ideal fit for medium- to large-size workgroups. The recent addition to Toshiba’s award-winning e-STUDIO line also scored high within nine other BLI testing categories including user maintenance, productivity and image quality.
“The Toshiba e-STUDIO5005AC promises to deliver maximum uptime for mid-size to large workgroups, thanks to outstanding reliability and simple procedures for replacing toner, drums and the waste toner container,” said BLI Senior Editor George Mikolay. “In addition, the device’s fast job stream speeds mean it will have no problem remaining productive in environments in which multiple users send multiple types of jobs over the course of the day. And those long-run jobs will not be at the expense of image quality, which proved to be consistent throughout testing and will meet the needs of most business environments.”
They were further impressed by e-STUDIO5005AC’s features of productivity and ease of use: boost scan productivity with fast scan speeds and 300-sheet duplex single-pass feeder, increase office efficiency with Simple Scan and Simple Copy menus by its new user interface, and take advantage of allowing applications to be embedded on to the MFP by the newly introduced e-BRIDGE Next controller.
Moreover, BLI noted that Toshiba’s self-encrypting hard drive with automatic drive invalidation and data overwrite up to 15 times*, and passing the strict U.S. Federal Information processing Standard 140-2, making the MFP ideal for any organization seeking to bolster its data security.
“It is a great honour for us to receive such an evaluation from the most reliable organization,” said Isao Sugehara, Chief Marketing Executive of Toshiba Tec Printing Solutions Business Group. “We believe this is the result that e-STUDIO5005AC has fulfilled all of the necessary needs and offers value for customers. This was achieved by everyone who dedicated to introduce this product”.
