Digital Copier Supercenter subscribes to a very comprehensive group of tests conducted by BLI each year. We do this so we can sell the best in class office copiers available from each of the six manufacturers we represent- Canon ImageRUNNER, Ricoh Aficio (Lanier, Gestetner, and Savin), Konica-Minolta BizHub, Sharp Digital imager and Toshiba e-Studio. You can ask our professional sales staff for a BLI report on any of the office copiers you are considering. The report usually is derived from an extensive three month testing period in one of BLI’s on-site testing labs. The report will first consist of a general appraisal- its’ overall rating against other office copiers in its segment. Then the lab test will go over specific ratings in each of the following categories: (1) Ease of Operation, (2) Paper Capacity, (3) Connectivity-network print, scan and fax, (4) Price vs. Performance, (5) Shortcomings and (6) Price Analysis and Summary. The report is normally around 20 pages and will confirm or maybe change your mind about the office copier you are considering.
