HP Earns BLI 2018 Printer/MFP Line of the Year & Reliability Awards
Posted August 2018
Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab (BLI, BLI 2018 Printer), the world’s leading authority on the document imaging industry, announced the winner of its Reliability award. Presented once every three years, the Buyers Lab Reliability award honors the manufacturer whose product line is determined to be the most reliable, based on the combined results of all models subjected to Buyers Lab’s rigorous reliability testing.
Printer and MFP reliability is a key concern for buyers, since a reliable device helps minimize downtime, resulting in improved worker productivity. After compiling performance data for every major OEM that submitted devices for laboratory testing from 2012 to 2018, the highly experienced analyst team has selected the vendor whose product line that stands out above the rest.
HP Leads the Pack in Reliability
After reviewing the performance of all color and monochrome printers tested by Buyers Lab, one clear winner emerged. “When it comes to tested reliability, no other brand even comes close to HP’s performance,” praised Marlene Orr, Director of Printer & MFP Analysis for Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. “HP’s business-class printers and MFPs offer exceptional reliability, churning out millions of pages with no failures or service interruptions, making it the clear winner as Most Reliable Brand.”
Keypoint Intelligence also announced HP as the winner of the 2018 Printer/MFP Line of the Year award. Presented once a year, the Line of the Year awards honor the manufacturers whose product lines are determined to be the best overall based on the cumulative test results of all models tested in BLI’s rigorous two-month laboratory evaluation. The selections are made by BLI’s highly experienced staff of technicians and analysts after subjecting scores of devices from every major OEM to BLI’s exhaustive, comprehensive lab tests.
HP’s Color Line: Connectivity, Simplicity, and Security for Business Users
For the eighth time in the past ten years, HP has claimed BLI’s Color Printer/MFP Line of the Year award, thanks to their robust line of printers and MFPs, class-leading innovation, and enterprise-level security.
“HP has long been the front-runner when it comes to innovation, continually reinventing the view of the modern office, while encouraging users to do more with their printing hardware,” said Marlene Orr, Director of Printer & MFP Analysis for Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. “Of course, HP color printers and MFPs offer class-leading reliability, performance and quality, but the addition of HP’s OXP architecture elevates mere output devices into digital onramps, delivering increased productivity through advanced functionality. And because increased functionality comes with more risk, HP embeds multiple layers of cutting-edge security technologies, including self-healing BIOS, run-time intrusion detection, and whitelisting into their devices to safeguard data, documents, and access to the corporate network.”
“HP is reinventing the LaserJet printing experience for customers with transformative technologies that leverage HP’s innovation in security, industrial design, and real-world performance,” said Tuan Tran, General Manager & Global Head, Office Printing Solutions, HP Inc. “We are honored that BLI has recognized HP with its 2018 Color Printer/MFP Line of the Year award.”
