Star SP500 Printer Review

Expert review of the Star SP500 printer

Our Verdict:

A business that needs a fast and robust printer for their receipts can consider the Star SP500, which boasts a small footprint and support for 3-ply paper. The 9-pin Star SP500 serial dot-matrix printer may look boxy and plain, but it is a reliable workhorse with protective features that allow it to work in extreme environments like kitchens and food service centres. However, the SP500 printer from Star Micronics could use a few improvements in terms of design and interface.

Design

The Star Micronics SP500 impact printer is a small rectangular-shaped printer made specifically for producing receipts. The understated appearance doesn't stand out and easily blends in with computers or cash registers on a counter or a desktop. The Star SP 500 dot-matrix receipt printer boasts a unique structure with an internal power supply and interface with cables that can be tucked away for further protection. The paper roll is loaded within the SP500 and the exit slot is on top.

Advantages

It is a fast machine that can print 40 columns in speeds of 4 lines per second. Receipts are printed well without being misaligned because of the intuitive mechanism of the Star SP-500 ribbon printer. An efficient cable management system protects the power supply and interface cables inside the enclosure. Another highlight on the Star SP500 dot-matrix printer is the support for 3-play paper.

Disadvantages

Loading the paper roll or switching Star SP500 printer inks could be fiddly and awkward. Users need to handle the Star SP500 receipt printer with care because of the internal power supply.
