BLI noted the tandem-engine 2250P’s impressive paper handling, performance on A3 and larger media, where it surpassed the competition and approached the performance of some devices with higher rated speeds. Analysts also noted the 2250P’s strong productivity and a wide range of adjustments to help achieve optimum image quality.

BLI said that the bizhub PRESS C1100 is “clearly one of the best production devices in this class” that it has evaluated, giving it at least 4½ stars in every test category.
