While competition in the color printing environment is substantial, printer manufacturer Lexmark is among the best this year, according to a recent announcement from BLI, also known as Buyer’s Lab. A variety of Lexmark models were recently announced as part of BLI’s Summer 2016 Pick Awards, with recognition as outstanding color printers and multifunction devices. Whether you have a small/mid-sized business (SMB) or a large workgroup, these Lexmark printers have proven themselves to be worthy additions to any team.

Based in New Jersey, BLI provides unbiased testing for document imaging hardware. Each summer BLI recognizes some of the best printers available, and this year Lexmark shone in both low-and high-volume categories, with outstanding color quality, high durability, and low cost of ownership.

“From SMBs to enterprise environments, business users can’t go wrong with Lexmark’s exceptional color printers and MFPs,” said Marlene Orr, Director of Office Equipment Product Analysis at BLI.

The Lexmark C4140 and C6160 were named “Outstanding Color Printer for SMBs.” Both provide PANTONE color calibration as well as Lexmark’s Mobile Print and Apple’s AirPrint. The C6160 goes on to offer some great green features, such as automatic ColorSaver toner usage reduction, default duplex printing, and low per-page carbon footprint.

SMBs looking to combine print, copy, scan, and fax capabilities in one machine will appreciate the XC4150, which provides a single-footprint solution for a variety of office needs. For larger teams needing multifunction solutions, the XC6152, XC8155, and XC8160 were named picks for “Outstanding Color MFP for Large Workgroups.” These MFPs build on the outstanding Lexmark platform and provide more robust printing power. The XC6152 even offers advanced media handling and built-in staple finishing features.

“The models in the Lexmark CX800 series, CX700 series, and CS700 series deliver outstanding color quality, excellent reliability, class-leading speeds, and unparalleled ease of use,” said Orr, “thanks to their intuitive design and large customizable touchscreen panels.”
