Unless you are referencing something quantifiable, such as a top athlete, the term “best” is subjective with many different opinions as to what the best actually is. In most cases, we rely on experts to do the research that it takes to establish the best in every industry. With regards to document imaging equipment, Buyers Lab (BLI) is the world’s leading independent provider of testing services and analytical information and are considered the all-encompassing industry resource. They recently announced their Summer 2019 Copier Multi-Function Product Pick Awards which named the top manufacturers in all Copier MFP categories. If you are looking for the best, look no further.
Canon imageRUNNER Advance
Canon took home six top picks in multiple categories for both color and black and white equipment that range in speed from 35 to 95 pages per minute. Buyers Lab ran more than 2 million collective impressions on the various machines and experienced just three misfeeds. Combine this unbelievable reliability with their PaceSetter award for ease of use, outstanding security features, and very good image quality, and it’s easy to understand why they are a top pick.

Also recognized in 6 categories that range from 32 pages per minute to 60 in both black and white and color, Kyocera’s reliability was also remarkable with only 3 misfeeds in 600,000 impressions of testing. Long-lasting consumables, consistent image quality, very good usability and outstanding price points make Kyocera products a great value in the copier MFP space.
