Buyers Laboratory tested Toshiba Tec's Hybrid MFP and not only highly recommends the e-STUDIO3508LP, but also considers it highly reliable and says it offers "robust security" and "superb image quality".

Toshiba Tec today announced that after thorough testing Buyers Laboratory (BLI), part of Keypoint Intelligence, has certified the reliability of the e-STUDIO3508LP and rated it "Highly Recommended". The unique A3 multifunction system (MFP) combines conventional printing with erasable printing, which allows paper to be reused. This can reduce the paper consumption considerably, thus leading to a reduced carbon footprint. At the same time the Hybrid MFP offers all the features of a regular monochrome system for modern businesses, including cloud and mobile printing.

During the two-months test phase both – the regular monochrome features as well as the unique ecological features – were tested. The exemplary ease of use thanks to the highly customisable user interface was just one of the aspects which lead BLI to highly recommend the e-STUDIO3508LP for use in mid-sized companies and departments.

"There are so many impressive aspects to the Toshiba e-STUDIO3508LP's lab performance. In addition to its standout reliability out of the box, producing 210,000 pages without skipping a beat, it offers exemplary ease of use, robust security features and superb image quality. Toshiba's focus on usability is clearly seen in the product design, from an intuitive and highly customizable touchscreen control panel to one-touch template shortcuts and custom driver profiles, all of which simplify job programming" says David Sweetnam, Director of Research and Lab Services, EMEA & Asia. "Rounding off the package, a unique eco-hybrid function with an erasable blue toner and embedded self-erase feature means that paper can be printed, erased and reused over and over again. And as corporate responsibility to the environment is increasingly important to the way businesses operate, this model can help companies to reduce their environmental impact and costs. Based on its lab evaluation, we have no hesitation in highly recommending the Toshiba e-STUDIO3508LP for busy, modern mid-sized departments."

"We always knew our unique Hybrid MFPs are the perfect choice for businesses looking for an reliable system and at the same time want to reduce their carbon footprint" says Akira Ito, Product Manager at Toshiba Tec. "We are extremely happy that after thorough testing, BLI has come to the same conclusion."

The e-STUDIO3508LP is one of three systems in Toshiba's latest Hybrid MFP series. For more information, please visit here.
