Sharp has been announced winner of the coveted Buyer’s Laboratory Inc’s (BLI)
2007 “Line of the Year”. The annual award, which includes BLI’s rigorous two-month
laboratory evaluation, determines the best overall multifunctional printer (MFP)
line up in terms of reliability, image quality, productivity, ease of use, scanning,
connectivity attributes and value.
Also considered is the breadth of each vendor’s line. BLI is the leading global
provider of test reports on document imaging products. Testing hundreds of products
representing every major vendor, BLI awarded Sharp honours in every category with
its “Pick of the Year” for the MX-M450N, MX-M700U and the new MX-M1100 in Segments 4, 5 and 6 and a “Highly Recommended” rating awarded to the models
in Segments 1 and 2.

BLI “Pick” winners than any other vendor, with colour products ranging in speeds
of 23ppm in colour and black and white, to 41ppm in colour and 62ppm in black
