Clueless Buyers

 

Ok buyers, please do your research. This receipt printer has an interface card that can be switched out! You can get Parallel, Serial, Ethernet, or USB. This info is stated all over the Espon Point of Sale website and you can use a tool called Google!...

Fast, reliable, industry standard

Not that I can think of

Reccomended

 

Wish it was priced about $100 less. Another quality Epson product.

Used non stop daily without a single jam or glitch. Paper loaded is easy. USB interface is a major plus for new machines without a serial port as many serial to usb converters slow things down. Unit fits perfectly on top of our mac mini's running...

Some places sell the power supply seperate ; You must register with Epson Expert to download drivers. Your ID will expire with Epson if you don't use their site again within thirty days thus you must register if you need a driver again. Makes updating...

Epson TM printer

 

Fast printing, super easy loading and reliable operation in a high volume retail environment. Paper readily available. Easily intergrated

If you are switching to this printer from another, I had STAR THermals, you just need to pay attention to detail on application and installation with the different model numbers available. Not really a con but preparation is everything.

Product Specifications

The high performance thermal TM-T88III is a must have for any fast moving retail or hospitality environment. It produces receipts, coupons, and tickets at a staggering 47 lines per second, without the distracting noise associated with impact printers. This speed, combined with easy-to-use features such as drop-in paper load and selectable auto-cutter, really helps to reduce transaction times and minimize queues. In addition, the TM-T88III can print scannable horizontal or vertical barcodes. Features such as scaleable characters, high-resolution graphics, landscaping and black-white reversal can be effectively employed to print visually striking, easy to read receipts and coupons. Up to 256KB of flash memory is also available to produce digital logos, helping to increase brand awareness. The TM-88III is exceptionally cost effective, with very low energy consumption, and is highly reliable, with an MCBF (Mean Characters Before Failure) of 52 million lines. An easy-to-clean print head and accessible covers ensure trouble-free maintenance, while the excellent cable management system prevents accidental disconnection while in use. This printer is extremely versatile, with a wide variety of interface options available. In addition to standard serial and parallel interfaces, the product supports both USB and Ethernet, allowing remote connection to point of sale terminals elsewhere in the store or restaurant, if required. In addition, the printer's space saving design and stylish appearance fits neatly into any retail or hospitality environment, helping to maximize available selling space on the counter top.
