Buyers Laboratory Awards SAMSUNG with “5 Star Ratings” for Environmental Performance of Print Devices

The three Samsung A4 color laser and multifunction printers, CLX-6260FW, CLX-6260FD and CLP-680ND, obtained the highest possible ratings of 5 Stars for performance in energy consumption. “Samsung earned several 5 Star Ratings by showing impressive results in our extensive lab testing,” said Pete Emory, BLI Lab Manager. “Strengths included lower than average projected annual energy consumption rates, faster than average recovery times from sleep mode and automatic duplex to help reduce paper use.”

Emory continued, “For the Pick Awards, Samsung’s CLX-9251NA stood out for its image quality, excellent administrative and feedback utilities and highly reliable engine. Buyers who care about image quality will be impressed, and we gave the SCX-8128NA top honors due to reliability, network connectivity, image quality and high toner yield tests.”

Samsung SyncThru Admin 6 was named “Outstanding Network Device Management Solution” for enabling administrators to manage fleets centrally and reduce maintenance time. BLI named it as the best device management utility evaluated in the “Picks” period for combining all the essential features of a network device management utility with innovative features such as the ability to discover and monitor local devices connected to networked PCs, SLA (service-level agreement) reporting capabilities and the ability to send error alerts via Twitter.
