Toshiba Featured On Cover of Better Buys Magazine Laser Fax Guide
Press release from the issuing company
Irvine, CA (May 1, 2001) Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. (TABS) announced that two of its laser facsimile systems have been named best in their class and have received the coveted Editor's Choice Award from Better Buys For Business, the nation's leading independent authority on office equipment.
"We strive to manufacture excellent products that deliver the highest levels of performance and offer the greatest value for businesses," said Mark Mathews, Vice President of Marketing, Electronic Imaging Division (TABS). "It is a great honor to be recognized by such a reputable organization like Better Buys For Business for these efforts. The two Toshiba fax models that received the Editor's Choice Award are part of a new Toshiba DP line that debuted last spring. Designed to be multifunctional office solutions, these systems are perfect for companies looking for products that don't just fax, but can print, scan and copy all in one unit."
"As companies look for ways to save money in this economy, multifunction units will become more popular. Common office practices of faxing, printing, copying and scanning used to require businesses to purchase separate devices for each function. Our DP series allows businesses to do-it-all with just one machine and a lower overall cost. The smaller footprint also saves space in the office," Mathews added.
Better Buys For Business calls Toshiba's new DP fax line "one of the strongest at the workgroup level," and praised its standard 600 dpi printing and JBIG compression, and optional functions such as Internet fax and scan-to-email capabilities.
It called the DP85F, which prints at 8 pages per minute (ppm), "a great value for buyers looking for a 33,600 bps machine with JBIG compression... and the least expensive machine of this type on the market today." Better Buys For Business said the DP120F, which prints at 12 ppm, is a "strong candidate at the high-volume level of the market," and "along with an attractive set of base features, it also provides the flexibility of different upgrade paths, notably a second line modem, Internet fax and network printing."
