PagePro 4100W Debuts in Fifth Place in Corporate Laser Printing
MINOLTA-QMS Inc. today announced that two of its economical PagePro(TM) printers have been named to PC World's Top 10 Laser Printer chart.
In the magazine's January 2001 issue, the PagePro 1100L grabbed the No. 1 spot and a "Best Buy" rating among small-business/home-office lasers, moving up a notch since last reviewed in September. In the Corporate Laser category, it was the PagePro 4100W that caught the eyes of the editors, ranking fifth among its competitors.
The printers shared three common features that PC World found highly appealing -- price, speed and print quality. In discussing the $249(a) PagePro 1100L, PC World noted that it was "the lowest-priced model on the SOHO Soho (sōhō`, sə–), district of Westminster, London, England, known for its continental restaurants. Once a fashionable quarter, it became popular among writers and artists in the 19th cent. list, as well as the speediest at printing graphics. Text appears solid, sharp, and clean." With the PagePro 4100W, it was a similar story. PC World editors summarized the $589-priced(a) printer as "the least expensive on the corporate chart and produces graphics the fastest."
"Being recognized in both the SOHO and corporate categories shows the strength of our black-and-white printer line," said Jan Sundelin, senior vice-president of worldwide sales and marketing at MINOLTA-QMS. "Coupled with our overwhelming success in PC World's color laser charts, which includes a World Class win, customers can be confident that, regardless what printing task they need served, MINOLTA-QMS can offer an affordable, reliable solution."
