WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother ranks highest in customer satisfaction with multi-function inkjet printers, performing particularly well in reliability, performance, variety of features and price paid, according to the J.D. Power 2014 Multi-Function Inkjet Printer Satisfaction Report(SM) released today.


The report measures customer satisfaction with multi-function inkjet printers based on six factors (in order of importance): performance; reliability; ease of operation; variety of features; price paid; and customer service.


    --  Among customers who rate overall satisfaction 10 (outstanding) on a

        10-point scale, 79 percent say they "definitely will" purchase another

        multi-function inkjet printer from the brand they currently own in the

        future, compared with the report average of 49 percent.

    --  More than two-thirds (67%) of customers purchase multi-function inkjet

        printers in a store, followed by 31 percent who purchase online.

    --  Overall satisfaction among multi-function inkjet printer customers is

        857 on a 1,000-point scale.

    --  Price is the primary reason for choosing a multi-function inkjet printer

        brand (70%).

    --  The average price paid for a multi-function inkjet printer is $154.

It's not uncommon for a household to have owned more than one printer," said Dan Lawlor, director of global research operations at J.D. Power. "When adding or replacing a multi-function inkjet printer, beyond price consideration, loyalty to the brand is dependent on a customer's previous experience with the brand. When it comes to performance and reliability, a brand with low problems is more likely to be purchased again and recommended to a family member or friend."

Rankings: Brother (866) ranks highest, followed by Hewlett-Packard (HP) (864) and Canon (848).

The 2014 Multi-Function Inkjet Printer Satisfaction Report is based on responses from 2,634 owners of multi-function inkjet printers. The study was fielded in June 2014.
