    Zebra GX430 Series Reviews

    POSGuys Rating:

    Aug '17: 3/5 Stars: The GX430 was the high density desktop printing for Zebra for several years but since has been replaced in most scenarios by the lower cost and easier to use ZD420 (300 DPI versions). The GX430 is based around print quality by using 300dpi printing and a slower and more controlled 4 inches per second print speed. In applications looking to print very compact and small barcodes or have a need for extra detailed graphics the GX is a great choice. If you are looking for faster print speeds and do not have a need for highly detailed printing then the ZD420 or GK420 are lower cost alternatives worth considering.

    Original Review: 5/5 Stars
