Fairfield (New Jersey) [US], Nov.15 (ANI): Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc., one of the world's leading document solutions companies, today announced that Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) has awarded the Kyocera TASKalfa 3252ci its "Highly Recommended" and "Reliability Certified" ratings for 2016.

BLI is a leading independent provider of product intelligence for the imaging industry, trusted by buyers and IT directors around the world. Over two months, BLI conducted rigorous assessments of virtually all features, capabilities, and performance measures. The TASKalfa 3252ci was rated as "an excellent overall performer."

The assessment included a 125,000-impression reliability test, during which time the MFP experienced only one misfeed. BLI analysts noted that the MFP's long-life components and high maximum paper capacity mean less frequent interruptions, and that both color and monochrome output remained consistent over long runs.

The TASKalfa 3252ci impressed Buyers Lab with its fast first-print and first-copy times, as well as its fast scan speed. The device is HyPAS-enabled, ready to run any of Kyocera's industry-leading library of business applications. BLI analysts called special attention to the mobile printing capabilities.

"WiFi-Direct and NFC support for Android are both standard, and the device can run Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and KYOCERA Mobile Print," said George Mikolay, Senior Editor for A3 and Production Hardware at BLI. "This MFP is ideal for today's mobile workforce."

"Both dealers and customers are looking for reliability and performance - and this is it," said Douglas Cole, Director of Product Marketing, Corporate Marketing Group for KYOCERA Document Solutions America. "This recommendation from BLI confirms everything we've been saying about the TASKalfa 3252ci."

The MFP features a unique waste toner design: expired black cartridges can be used as waste containers, reducing storage requirements and landfill waste. The design earned the TASKalfa 3252ci a Summer 2016 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation.

"With its low price, robust feature set, and strong overall performance, the MFP is an excellent value for small to mid-size workgroups," continued BLI's Mikolay. "BLI highly recommends the Kyocera TASKalfa 3252ci for monthly volumes of up to 15,000 impressions." (ANI)
