Citizen Swift 224 Printer Review

Expert review of the Citizen Swift 224 printer 06 February 2013

Our Verdict:

Businesses in need of a reliable dot-matrix printer may opt for the Citizen Swift 224. This device can be used for delivering pay slips, labels, envelopes, and invoices. It can handle a wide range of media and has versatile paper handling. The Citizen Swift 224 dot-matrix printer offers a maximum resolution of 240 x 216 dpi. This model is offered at an affordable price and it uses long-lasting consumables. Print speed is a bit slow.


The compact Citizen 224 printer measures 405 x 320 x 136 mm and weighs approximately 5 kg. It has a friction feed and offers push and pull tractors. Parallel interface is standard while serial is optional. The Citizen Swift 224 matrix printer is integrated with an input buffer of 8 kb that can be upgraded to 128 kb. The Citizen 224 black ink ribbon yields up to 2 million characters.


This robust model can print continuously for hours without fault. It has a long-lasting printhead that has a life of 400 million characters and it can handle multi-part forms of up to four copies and one original. The Citizen 224 Swift takes up little desk space and it has low maintenance. Both initial and running costs are affordable. The Swift 224 impact printer offers optional colour kit.


The Citizen Swift 224 receipt printer could be better if it had a standard serial interface and if it also had USB and networking connectivity. There are new dot-matrix printers that are superior. It may be hard for users to find replacement parts and consumables for the Swift 224 in the local market.
