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...

Consumer review by:

a smooth operator

 

This printer is fast and quiet. Once I finally figured out how to get it to operate and cut from all of my terminals in my store, it has been very smooth. The cutting option is very nice too.

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

Consumer review by:

Compact and quick

 

This is a quick little receipt printer. The TM-T88IV wastes no time in firing out the reciept. Overall size is compact and and easy to use. Drop the paper in and close the lid. Highly recomended.

Burn...

 

Very misleading description.

We have many of these in our enterprise (and they are supported by win2k3 server)

I thought these had Ethernet...and I am apparently not the only one ; Epson support is hit or miss. It depends on who you get to talk to

Great product - Buyer beware of false advertisement

 

I'm sure it works great. Epson makes great receipt printers. I need to get a compatible serial connection

While this does support Ethernet, USB, Parallel, and Serial, it only comes with parallel support connection. False advertising on Epson's part(not newegg's fault). If you want support for another interface you have to buy it. Thanks Epson(sarcastic)

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.
