Two Kyocera Laser Printers ‘Highly Recommended’ Certified ‘Highly Reliable' by Buyers Lab

Kyocera’s FS-C8650DN and FS-4300DN Receive High Marks In BLI Lab Tests

FAIRFIELD, N.J. – March 27, 2013 – KYOCERA Document Solutions America, one of the world's leading document solutions companies, today announced that Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) certified Kyocera’s FS-C8650DN color laser printer and FS-4300DN monochrome laser printer as “highly reliable” print devices. BLI, a leading provider of product intelligence for the imaging industry, went on to “highly recommend” the FS-C8650DN for environments with monthly print volumes of up to 35,000 impressions; it did the same for the FS-4300DN for medium to large workgroups with monthly volumes of up to 15,000 impressions.

When reporting lab results for the FS-8650DN, BLI cites “class-leading performance in BLI’s real-world job stream test with the PCL driver,” and reports that the device rated “among the fastest tested speeds when printing multiple sets.” The powerful color laser printer also showed “faster than average first-page times from ready mode and from overnight sleep.” BLI was equally impressed with the FS-4300DN, reporting that the monochrome device displayed “faster than average job stream speeds with both drivers,” offered “fast first-page times,” and boasted “faster than average speeds when printing multiple sets.”

The lab also lauded Kyocera’s ECOSYS technology, which relies on long-life consumables to reduce the total cost-of-ownership and minimize environmental waste.
