Konica Minolta’s devices stand out for reliability, quality and usability 

Sydney, Australia – Konica Minolta has received 12 Buyers Lab (BLI) Awards from Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software and services. All devices acknowledged are from Konica Minolta’s new bizhub i-Series, underlining the successful relaunch of the company’s multi-functional print devices (MFP) range. In addition to 10 BLI 2021 Pick Awards for its bizhub A3 MFPs, Konica Minolta secured the BLI 2021 A3 Line of The Year Award. Based on long-term comprehensive testing, Konica Minolta was further acknowledged with the BLI 2021-2023 Most Colour Consistent A3 Brand Award. 

Companies demand consistent quality, reliability and the highest levels of usability from their office printers; it is in exactly these areas that Konica Minolta’s A3 bizhub i-Series range impressed the testers from Keypoint Intelligence. Twelve Konica Minolta bizhub A3 MFPs received the highly recommended overall rating for outstanding performance in Keypoint Intelligence lab testing. Ten of those models earned Pick Awards in their respective segments: bizhub C250i; C300i; C450i; C550i; C650i; 300i; 360i; 450i; 550i; and 750i. This earned Konica Minolta the ‘BLI 2021 A3 Line of the Year’ award. 

Mark Brown, general manager – marketing, Konica Minolta Australia, said, “Konica Minolta is proud to receive this acknowledgment and the awards are testament to the success of Konica Minolta’s newest generation of bizhub i-Series A3 MFP devices.”  

Mark Brown said, “With smart MFPs like the bizhub i-Series, Konica Minolta continues to strengthen its position as a reliable partner for intelligent office printing with the needs of the customer at the centre of every device and service Konica Minolta creates.”  

The BLI 2021-2023 Most Colour Consistent A3 Brand Award further demonstrates that Konica Minolta’s MFPs can deliver repeatable high-quality printing results. For this award, Keypoint Intelligence analysed colour consistency for more than 20 years and included the last five years of results in this evaluation. Technicians print IT8 colour charts at specific test points throughout a device’s reliability test, which are then measured using Xrite i1Profiler software together with the i1Pro2 spectrophotometer/iO table combination.
