Official Comments by the JDP Review Committee

High volume printing, reduced waste with its toner-only replacement concept, and refill and consumable replacement done with one hand from the front – the development concepts are clear and packaged rationally in simple designs. The two-tone structure adopting darker colors focuses on functionality by highlighting those elements linked with paper and makes the printers look compact and persuasive overall.
