Epson OmniLink TM-T88V-DT 10/10/2013 8:40:14 PM

Epson OmniLink TM-T88V-DTHey so this is a new and weird development in point of sale. Epson has released a line of printers called OmniLink, which include a computer in the printer itself. Seems pretty crazy, but companies put TVs in refrigerators. Anyway, the main product that we think will work for us and our customers is the Epson OmniLink TM-T88V-DT, which offers a full computing experience in a slightly taller receipt printer. It’s a great fit for smaller retailers, kiosks, or really any location where space is at a severe premium.

Built with a TM-T88V, this comprinter (check that portmanteau out) has the top-tier printing needed for extended longevity and fantastic performance. The TM-T88 line has been the gold standard for printing for five revisions, and this model is no exception. A top print speed of nearly a foot per second keeps even giant receipts appearing as if from magic. The auto-cutter is rated for 2 million cuts and the printer has a MTBF of nearly 40 years of operation. This is a long-lasting printer.

Beneath the printer is the POS computer underpinnings, an Atom processor running Windows POSReady 7. POSReady is a slimmed down version of Windows, eliminating unneeded features, like Solitaire, so it runs better on more energy-efficient hardware. You get 4 GB of RAM and a 16 or 32 GB SSD, so you could run lightweight standalone POS software or have it setup as a secondary order station to a larger deployment.

We even have a video up to show the ins and outs of the TM-T88V-DT. Check it out!
