Toshiba Models Win Prestigious BLI & Better Buys Awards
Posted May 2019
Toshiba is proud to announce the prestigious “Winter Pick” award from Buyers Lab for the new e-STUDIO 4518A monochrome multifunction product. Additionally, both the e-STUDIO 4518A and the e-STUDIO 5015AC color model received “Highly Recommended” and “Highly Reliable” ratings from BLI, the recognized independent testing source for the industry. The e-STUDIO 5015AC also was honored by Better Buys with their Editor’s Choice Award. Better Buys provides unbiased, expert insights on software and technology.
Toshiba’s midrange color and monochrome models are built on the same platform, which is why they shared many of the same accolades, including scan speeds that are among the fastest in their classes, along with fast print speeds and exceptional reliability performance – all points that BLI indicated in their test reports.
Besides the “faultless reliability” demonstrated by the 2019 Winter Pick winner, BLI also acknowledged the model’s security attributes noting, “Document security is another of the device’s strong suits with a standard 320GB Self-Encrypting hard drive with Automatic Data Invalidation and Data Overwrite up to 15 times.”
Buyers Lab said, “Toshiba is too much for the competition in mid-range monochrome. Scanning will be a snap, and fast, with the Toshiba e-STUDIO 4518A, thanks to simple programming of destinations and scan speeds that are among the fastest in its class. A choice of four menu designs for scan and copy, from two of which the most commonly used settings are quickly found and programmable, and user-by-user customization, also allow users to program jobs quickly and efficiently. And with a perfect reliability performance, fast print speeds, and standard tandem printing to help complete large jobs even faster, the device promises timely delivery of every job, every day.”
