Epson TM-T88V

TM-T88V Receipt Printer


The Epson TM-T88V receipt printer takes the features and capabilities of the TM-T88IV to the next level, giving you a faster, more reliable printer for virtually any installation. A print speed of nearly one foot per second for both text and graphics dramatically cuts print time even on long receipts. Print options are available to reduce paper usage by shrinking fonts or whitespace, further speeding up the checkout process. USB comes standard on all models, with RS-232 Serial, Ethernet, or even 802.11b/g Wireless as additional optional interfaces. When combined with driver support for Windows XP, 2000, Vista, 7, Mac OS X, and Linux, the Epson TM-T88V can be installed anywhere with no headaches.

Epson wants you to get the most out of your hardware and built the TM-T88V to last. The autocutter is rated to 2 million cuts, and the mean time between failure is a staggeringly high 360,000 hours (about 41 years of use). Improved cover design adds protection against foreign objects, further extending the receipt printer's longevity. With an industry leading 4 year warranty, the TM-T88V Epson receipt printer is the last printer you'll need for quite some time.

TM-T88V and TM-T20II Speed Difference Video

Hi this is Travis with POSGuys.com. Today we're taking a relook at a video we created a couple years ago. This is the TM-T88V and this is the new version of the T20 ReadyPrint, the T202 or T20II however you want to call it. The print speed has been increased on this but also some internal changing has been done on the printer. The printer can print a lot faster than it used to be. Take a look at our older video where we compared the print speed from the 88V to the original T20. You can see a significant slow down whenever this had to print heavy graphics. So in that original video there was like a black bar that would print every other line and that black bar really caused this printer to slow down. The T20II has been upgraded so that is no longer the case. The speed prints like you would expect it to print which is slower than the 88V but not significantly slower.

We'll do another speed test here. So what we did is we setup both of these printers as kitchen printers. We're going to just add a bunch of items to the order. So as you can see the 88V still printed faster but not so much faster that this would be a hindrance. So definitely an improvement on the T20 versus the older model. The price is about the same as the T20II as it was for the original T20. One big change on it is that the power supply used to be internal on the T20 and it is now external on the T20II. So there is a little brick that you'll have to hide somewhere under your counter or under a table. Something like that. Before it was just a single cord. Which actually can be a good thing should a power supply fail you can replace it where before it was internal so once that power supply failed then your printer would have to be replaced.

The warranty is longer on the 88V so it, including the increased speed, the increased reliability there is a longer warranty on the T88V. High paced restaurants or retail establishments I'd still go with the 88V, I'd spend a little extra money and get the better printer but if you are on a tight budget and you're looking for something more economical the T20II is a good solution, the speed has definitely improved over the original T20. If you liked this video, if it was helpful to you, please visit us at www.POSGuys.com and we'd appreciate a thumbs up and a like or maybe a good comment. Thanks!
