Toshiba Tec Corporation (TOKYO: 6588) announces that its e-STUDIO4508A has earned Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab's Summer 2017 Pick. Toshiba's latest monochrome product surpassed comparable multifunction peripherals (MFPs) in reliability, usability, security, value and features during six months of rigorous, side-by-side product testing.

Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab presents its 'Pick' awards twice annually to acknowledge the best hardware and software offerings in specific product categories. Its unique and comprehensive testing assesses a wide range of features and performance factors that are most important for buyers.

"The Toshiba e-STUDIO4508A offers excellent reliability and a feature set that is designed to enhance end-user productivity," said Keypoint Intelligence Associate Director George Mikolay. "Users can create and access driver profiles to streamline frequently recurring print chores, while one-touch templates and the Simple Scan and Simple Copy menus make scan and copy jobs a cinch."

The industry-recognized feature set within Toshiba's e-STUDIO4508A seamlessly handles the print, document management and workflow needs of virtually any business application. The product is one of six models − with speeds from 20-50 ppm − within Toshiba's e-STUDIO5008A series integrating otherwise identical hardware and software elements.

This time, the e-STUDIO4508A has also won the Pick award 2017 summer, and we are very proud that Toshiba's MFPs are recognized as the valuable products to contribute to our customers, for example, achieving better communication and smarter workflow," said Sachio Koyama, General Manager of Products, Marketing & Service Division, Toshiba Tec Corporation.
