CognitiveTPG Ci & Cxi Series Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

With the Cognitive Cxi and Ci model printers, operations with high-capacity printing needs no longer have to sacrifice quality for lack of space. This truly industrialized desktop printer fits anywhere, offers the convenience of desktop printers, but behaves like a mid-sized ruggedized unit.
