Product Video Transcript

Hi, Travis from POSGuys.com. Today's review is on the POS-X HiSpeed thermal receipt printer. This is the top of the line printer for POS-X, it prints at over 11.8 inches per second, it comes with a 5 year warranty, and it's available with all the major interfaces you need, USB, Ethernet, and then for legacy users, parallel and serial are available as well. It's an extremely fast printer, at 11.8 inches per second, running the Windows test page, you can see how quickly it prints, and it has a little bit of graphics, different fonts, and it prints at full speed, no problem whatsoever. Printing a receipt, you can see how it prints as well, again multiple fonts on it, some lines, and then some graphics as well. As far as the print quality goes, the printer prints at 180 by 180 dpi, this is the standard, it's the same as most of the printers in its class, it'll print all the graphics you generally need. Loading paper into this printer is exceptionally easy. Pop open the cover, and it's drop and loading, so you just kind of hold one end, drop it in, close the cover, and you're ready to go. The printer has your standard open cover, feed button, power display, and then it has an error and a paper sensor. This is actually a low paper sensor and an out of paper sensor, which is a nice feature, it tells you when you're about to run out and when you're completely out, some printers only tell you when you're completely out, they won't tell you when you're low. The error light also gives you some diagnostics abilities to figure out what is wrong with the printer, whether the cover is open, or the printer may be jammed or something like that. Overall, the POS-X HiSpeed is a fantastic printer. It prints over 90 miles of receipt, it's cutter can do a million and a half cuts, it has a 5 year warranty, which is awesome. It also has a 2 day rapid replacement warranty on it, so should your printer fail, they'll get you a new one in two days, which is absolutely fantastic, it's really the only one in its class that does that, without having to buy some expanded warranty. Their tech support department I can't speak highly enough, they know their products, they'll help you install it, they're also not afraid to recommend where you go in your software in order to configure it to work, a lot of manufacturers will only do the drivers, and they won't go into the software at all, so POS-X tech support, great job, definitely someone you want to work with. The HiSpeed is a great printer. Definitely one to consider if you're looking for a higher end printer that's going to be ultra-reliable and ultra-fast. So great product, take a look at it if you're looking for a high speed receipt printer. For more information on the POS-X HiSpeed, please visit us at POSGuys.com. Thank you!
