DataMaster Labs have tested the Konica Minolta C227/C287 range of A3 color multifunctions at the new Konica Minolta Paris showroom, and they have been awarded the rating of 4/5 stars after full evaluation of the test results.
The interface is highly reactive, and the wide range of options included on it were particularly appreciated, despite the small size of the screen iteself. These machines are very productive: even in a very busy environment, these machines can RIP and scan, or RIP multiple files simultaneously - without tangible impact on productivity.
These machines are quiet, and overall have good environmental grades, with a typical weekly power consumption (TEC) of 1,000 Wh / week, while remaining efficient and productive.
DataMaster's analyses and assessments are completely independent. Five-star certificates are extremely rare. To attain five stars, not only must the equipment under test demonstrate an excellent performance in most categories, but must have no major weakness in any of the evaluation criteria.
Machines' evaluation certificates and the corresponding rosette badges (as well as those for other machines in the range with the same print engine, plus any rebadged machines sold by other brands) can all be downloaded for FREE from Printer-Benchmark.com. The radar chart, the detailed results of productivity tests and other comparison tools are available on the DMO website, accessible by subscription.
