Upgrading your P7000 to P8000, is it worth it?

Printronix P8000 Cartridge Printers Implies More Worth and Convenience While Reducing Working Expenses

Consumable spools: It’s a hassle to manually flip ribbon spools to maximize usage with the P7000. However, the P8000 supports a continuous loop ribbon system, ensuring constant operations and optimal resource utilization.  

Enhanced Web Interface: While the P7000 offers basic network configuration options, the P8000 takes it a step further with a comprehensive range of features. From network configuration to full printer load/save configuration, file upload and download, and firmware upgrades, the P8000 provides better control and accessibility.   

Advanced Control Panel Display: Experience superior usability with the P8000’s 128 x 64 LCD display, complete with navigation options in nine languages. In contrast, the P7000’s two lines of 16 characters pale in comparison, limiting functionality and accessibility.  

Expanded Memory Capacity: Don’t let limited memory hold you back. With the P8000, enjoy a substantial boost in memory capacity, featuring 256 MB flash and 128 MB DDR2 DRAM, compared to the P7000’s meager 8 MB flash (expandable to 32 MB) SD RAM  

Standard Interfaces: Connect effortlessly with a range of devices and networks using the P8000’s standard interfaces, including RS-232 Serial, USB, and Ethernet 10/100 Baset. Meanwhile, the P7000’s options are limited to RS-232 Serial and Parallel, restricting connectivity and compatibility.  

Electronics Design: The P7000’s unsealed and horizontally mounted design leaves it more susceptible to damage, compromising reliability and performance. Protect your investment with the P8000’s sealed and vertically mounted electronics, minimizing the risk of failures caused by contaminants.
