CognitiveTPG A798

A798 Receipt Printer


The CognitiveTPG A798 Thermal Receipt printer provides solid, reliable service at a reasonable price. A 5.9" print speed may not qualify for the Indy 500, but is still fast enough to keep your lines moving efficiently. To reduce environmental damage, the A798 features an all-metal chassis and channeling system to redirect spills away from circuitry. The print head and cutter are rated at 60 million lines and 2.3 million cuts, respectively, ensuring the CognitiveTPG A798 will perform admirably for quite some time.

    CognitiveTPG A798 Reviews

    POSGuys Rating:

    The A798 is a great low-cost alternative to the Epson TM-T88IV. Though not as fast as the competition, it features full support for the Epson command set, making for easy upgrades with minimal software configuration changes.

    Purchased: A798 Thermal Receipt Printer, Dark Gray with auto-cutter, Power Supply and Power Cable, USB Interface

    Liked: The Price

    Additional Info: I use several of these printers in my stores. After replacing ones I bought a year ago that failed on me. These are a great value if you are on a budget and perform well. Plus I can still use the same paper. I had an issue trying to install one on an older computer system, but posguys tech support helped out and got it working.
