JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 31 March, 2016 - Samsung Electronics SA, has announced that it has won the '2016 Monochrome Printer / Multifunctional Printer (MFP) Line of the Year' Award from Buyers Labouratory Inc. (BLI) for the fourth time since 2012. BLI, the world's leading independent evaluator of document imaging devices and solutions, credited the monochrome printer and MFP series for the reliability, robust design, strong performance, cost and energy efficiency, environmentally friendly features, and ease of use.

"It's a great honour to be recognised as the leading provider of printing solutions that help create a more productive and efficient work environment," said Mike van Lier: Director of Enterprise Business Division (EBD) at Samsung South Africa. "We are totally focused on offering printing solutions which are optimised for the smart office environment. It is hugely rewarding to see the key strengths of our monochrome printers and MFP lines once again independently confirmed by BLI."

"Samsung Electronics SA understands what customers need most from their printing products: reliability, productivity and efficiency," said Mike.

Two more BLI 2016 Winter Pick Awards

Samsung also won two more BLI 2016 Pick Awards, which are announced twice annually - in winter and summer.

The ProXpress M3825DW received the 'Outstanding A4 Printer for Small Workgroups' Winter Pick Award, with the ProXpress series capable of printing 40 pages per minute, and offering a range of features ideal for SMEs. For example, the eXtensible Open Architecture (XOA) web platform enables fast implementation of third-party software, as well as mobile printing through Google Cloud Print.

The 'Outstanding A4 Printer for Large Workgroups' Winter Pick Award was won by Samsung's ProXpress M4530 Series, which is capable of printing up to 47 pages per minute. The M4530's 1GHz dual-core CPU provides the power and capacity needed to accomplish print and copy jobs of all sizes and complexity, swiftly and easily. It also enables companies to reduce their operating costs and save time due to the long-life drum and extra high yield toner.

The most rigorous evaluation on the market

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

The BLI Winter and Summer Pick Awards acknowledge the products that gave the best performances in BLI's extensive suite of lab tests in the previous six months.
