<p>SECAUCUS, NJ (May 24, 2011) — Panasonic System Networks Company of America today announced that BERTL, Inc., an industry-leading provider of independent, non-biased office machine evaluations, has named the Panasonic KX-MB2061 MFP an &quot;outstanding next-generation multifunction communication&quot; solution. The KX-MB2061 was awarded BERTL's coveted five-star rating in six categories: Printing, Scanning, Features, Ease of Use, Build Quality and Price.&#160; </p> <p>In awarding the KX-MB2061 4.5 stars overall based on an aggregate of its scores in 11 areas, BERTL analysts noted that &quot;Panasonic is redefining the typical MFP&quot; by integrating an office phone and voicemail system supporting up to six handsets with laser printing, copying, faxing and color scanning functions.</p> <p>Citing the KX-MB2061's &quot;exceptional overall performance,&quot; BERTL product testers &quot;were extremely impressed with the Panasonic KX-MB2061 for its above-average performance speeds, very good image quality, superb ease of use and innovative communication features.&quot;</p> <p>In addition to winning awards, the KX-MB2061 has also been racking up stellar reviews from such highly respected B2B media outlet labs including CRN and GCN.</p> <p>&quot;We are honored that organizations like BERTL, CRN, and GCN have recognized the KX-MB2061 as a best-of-breed total office solution,&quot; Panasonic System Networks Company of America President Bill Taylor said. &quot;The KX-MB2061 is the right product at the right time for small businesses, providing an affordable solution in a difficult business climate. It's flattering that the technology media and third-party analysts appreciate and support our products.&quot; </p> <!--break--> <p>In February 2011, a CRN review by Edward Correia titled, “Panasonic Means Multifunction” told its readers that &quot;Panasonic has taken all-purpose devices to a new level with the KX-MB2061, (It) incorporates not just the usual printing, scanning, copying and faxing capabilities, but adds voice-mail and a cordless telephone system to the mix ... The only thing missing is an optional coffee maker.&quot;</p> <p>In addition to its SOHO-market friendly pricing and ability to &quot;simplify and lower&quot; small company costs, CRN reviewers were singularly impressed by the KX-MB2061's &quot;easy setup,&quot; printing speed and performance, bundled scanning and OCR applications, and the&#160; &quot;high-quality digital sound&quot;&#160; delivered by Panasonic's DECT 6.0 telephone technology.</p> <p>Evaluating the KX-MB2061 for GCN Labs, John Breeden II wrote that &quot;one area where this MFP does shine is speed. It crunched our 30-page graphical document in 1 minute, 27 seconds, the same time it got for our all-text 30-page test print. That’s in the top 10 quickest times ever recorded for an MFP, especially for graphical print speeds and considering the low $249 price tag. </p> <p>&quot;The KX-MB2061 would make a fine unit for home users who want to add basic printing, scanning and faxing capabilities to their home offices for not much money,&quot; Breeden added. &quot;The cordless phone is (also) a great idea, and it’s nice to find a company thinking outside the box.&quot;</p>
