Creating Wonderful Cheap Printers For Sale

You would never want your point of sale system to be down because you ran out of paper. Receipt and remote printers are the parts of your point of sale system most prone to failure. They get the most use and have the most wear and tear of any part of your system. This is also true for laser printers for sale. By using the parallel interface for the receipt printer you then open up the serial and USB ports for other devices. The real profit for printer makers, however, lies in the sale of printer cartridges.

Most maintenance plans call for you, the business owner to prepay for a quarterly or annual contract that covers repairs and a loaner. Which is similar to HP printers for sale most of the time. Both Canon and Hewlett-Packard have been involved in lawsuits over both cartridges and alleged unfair competition. They did so because of the superior speed and reliability of the parallel interface compared to the then standard serial connection.

Even in the best of situations you should expect to have hours of downtime if a replacement printer is needed. This means that anyone who refills a Lexmark cartridge for reuse could face charges and legal action. The connectors at each end of a parallel cable are very wide and impossible to run through conduit without cutting off the ends.

Even if you have a mixture of thermal printers and dot matrix printers in your point of sale system, you should consider having a simple dot matrix printer as a backup. Shawn is presently working with TONIK – a mass provider of Inks and Toners. Usually this is the exact opposite of Canon printers for sale. It is the unique and easy locking parallel cable connector that makes a parallel receipt printer the perfect choice.

Note that I said most, as there are some printers that do have multiple interfaces. As always, check with your point of sale software vendor to make sure that they support parallel receipt printers. In a matter of minutes you are back up and running where before you could have been down for days by a low-cost part of your point of sale system that you could have exchanged yourself.
