Mt. Laurel, NJ (July 25, 2012) — OKI Data Americas announces that the recently-launched MB401 series of mono multifunction printers (MFPs) and the CX3535/4545 color MFPs have each earned the Better Buys for Business Editor’s Choice Award. The MB401 MFP series and the CX3535/4545 MFPs were noted as standouts in the black and white printer multifunctional and color printer multifunctional categories, respectively. The Better Buys for Business Editor’s Choice Award is given to products that deliver the highest level of performance and offer the greatest value within each individual category.
“OKI has produced two series of multifunction printers with highly competitive print speeds and enhanced functionality,” said Melissa Pardo Bunte, Editor of Better Buys for Business. “The MB401 series mono MFPs and the CX3535/4545 color MFPs are both impressive additions to OKI’s existing product portfolio and earned our Editor’s Choice Award for being standout devices within their respective products categories.”
Part of OKI’s second generation series of A4 monochrome multifunction printers, the MB461, MB471, MB471w, and MB491 models combine a powerful feature set with advanced multifunction capabilities at a competitive acquisition cost paired with a low total cost of ownership. As noted by Better Buys for Business, the MB401 MFP series offers enhanced features such as increased speed, higher-capacity toner cartridges, and wireless connectivity. These attributes make the MB401 MFP series a strong competitor in the small-to-midsize workgroup mono MFP space.
“OKI is honored to receive the Better Buys for Business Editor’s Choice Award for the MB401 MFP series,” said Hiroyuki Fukushima, Director of Non-Impact Printer Product Marketing for OKI Data Americas. “The MB401 MFP series delivers exceptional value, superior media handling and low total cost of ownership, all backed by an outstanding warranty.

The A3 copier-based color MFPs combine versatility, high-performance, security and energy-efficiency with the ability to streamline document workflow processes through the consolidation of office equipment into a single device. Better Buys for Business noted the fast print speeds paired with excellent document and workflow management features such as its open platform technology among the devices’ competitive advantages.
