KYOCERA Monochrome Printer Honored with Editor’s Choice Award from Better Buys for Business

KYOCERA’s FS-9520DN receives award for its print quality, reliability, extensive feature set and significant cost savings over competitive products

Fairfield, New Jersey, August 2, 2004 – Kyocera Mita America, one of the world's leading document imaging companies, today announced that its FS-9520DN monochrome printer has been honored with an Editor’s Choice award from Better Buys for Business, a highly regarded testing organization of office imaging equipment. This coveted award in the office equipment industry is bestowed upon models that serve as a benchmark of high quality, exceptional performance and real value.

“Kyocera has been making laser printers with strong features and value for years and the newly enhanced FS-9520DN is no exception,” said Steve Hannaford, editor, Better Buys for Business. "The FS-9520DN combines the convenience of an office printer with the power and low operating cost of a high-end production printer.
