The performance of the printer was, according to BLI, “virtually flawless throughout the test” after a million pages of tests were carried out and the report stated that the CX860’s performance was “better than that of most competitive devices tested to date by BLI.”
Lance Lucas, Manager, Hardware Product Marketing, said: “There is a stereotype in our industry that A3 devices (which handle tabloid-size paper) have the most reliable engines, which is why they experience larger print volumes per placement. Our new A4 (letter and legal-size) devices are just as reliable and the million-page test has proven our point. The Lexmark 800 Series Colour Printers and MFPs have broken the stereotypical barriers and are worthy of higher-usage environments.”
Rob Naylor, New Project Management in colour products, said: “Frankly, no one in R&D who worked on the products was surprised by these results. This machine is one of the largest development efforts Lexmark has ever had, from firmware to hardware. It’s the flagship of our color line, and we are so proud to have worked on a device that performs at the level it does. The BLI results validate what we expected — the CX860 truly rises above the competition.
BLI named Lexmark the winner of the 2017 Color Printer/MFP Line of the Year award recently and Marlene Orr, BLI Director of Office Equipment Product Analysis, commented: “Lexmark’s devices gave a superb performance across its entire colour line. From small workgroups to large enterprise environments, Lexmark’s impressive portfolio of colour printers and MFPs has you covered. Lexmark can be counted on for highly reliable colour devices that offer intuitive operation, impressive image quality and productivity, support for a wide array of mobile print methods and integration with workflow software that enhances security, simplifies business processes and lowers costs.”
