Printers receive accolades within their respective product categories for unique feature sets, competitive pricing and ability to deliver value to the consumer

OKI Data Americas announces receipt of two “Innovative Product of the Year” awards for its B512dn single function monochrome printer and C900 Series color multimedia production platform devices from Better Buys – a leading independent buyer’s guide for office equipment. The B512dn was singled-out within the monochrome single function printer category for its affordability, low cost-per-page and environmental friendly features. The C900 Series devices were recognized for their unique functionality, media handling capabilities, speed and innovation within the high-volume category. Better Buys applauded these OKI devices for delivering value to the consumer and for their innovative features.
Having already received Better Buys’ Editor’s Choice Award, the B512dn was recognized as an affordable and compact device within its product category. Along with its compact design, the B512dn was cited for offering excellent cost-per-page figures, fast first-page-out time and duplex printing capabilities – all of which are ideal for mid-sized workgroups.
The C900 Series is also a Better Buys’ Editor’s Choice Award recipient for having impressive full color printing capabilities, including CMYK plus white and enhanced clear toner within select models. Of note, Better Buys praised both the C931e and C941e for their upgrades including extended warranty1, envelope feeder support, extended free custom media files2 and a higher color density for professional quality output.
“OKI Data Americas continues to demonstrate a commitment to innovation as exemplified by these unique devices,” said Melissa Pardo-Bunte, Editor of Better Buys. “The B512dn and C900 Series demonstrated the highest level of performance and greatest value to the consumer plus some truly ground-breaking new features and functionality, delivering printing solutions for an evolving workforce and marketplace. For these reasons, Better Buys for Business is pleased to bestow the honor of its ‘Innovative Product of the Year’ awards to the B512dn and C900 Series devices from OKI Data Americas.”
The B512dn was among a series of enhanced new monochrome single function and multifunction printers introduced by OKI Data Americas in 2015, combining a powerful feature set with high print volumes, large paper capacity, Wi-Fi® print capabilities, increased memory and low total cost of ownership (TCO). It also offers mobile printing capabilities for tablets and smart phones by providing Apple® AirPrint™ for iOS™ devices and Google Cloud Print™ and OKI Mobile Print application for Android devices. Part of OKI’s broad portfolio of office printers and solutions, the B512dn provides a high level of quality, reliability, performance and value.
The C900 Series are a category of production-quality A3 color devices with innovative features and functionality – including white and clear printing capabilities on select models – that have been revolutionizing the office and commercial printing industries since their introduction. These devices go far beyond traditional digital color printers with the addition of ground-breaking media handling that includes transparent media, magnets, banners and heavyweight cardstock – all within a single, compact unit. By defining this new space within the market, OKI further established itself as a leader in LED digital printing innovation.
