Argox direct thermal label printer

Argox D4-250 Direct Thermal Label Printer

The Argox D4-250 Direct Thermal is a new model from one of the leading manufacturers that supports a wide range of applications at an affordable price.

We often take a product and take an in depth look at its design, construction and workings. Last week it was the Argox D4-250’s turn. The printer was put through its paces with very satisfactory results.

Firstly lets look at its features.

  • Compact size, unit really has a small footprint, ideal for desks or tight spaces.
  • The Clam Shell design makes it easy to load rolls of paper labels
  • The connectivity is great! The printer has onboard USB Host, USB Device, Serial and Ethernet. Making it ideal for most applications.
  • If wired connectivity is a problem, the D4-250 can be expanded with a WiFi or Bluetooth module – Great!
  • The Argox D4-250 has received Cerner Certification!
  • The printing speed of max 6 ips produces great prints.

After testing the printer we came to the conclusion that the D4-250 really lives up to the claims made by the manufacturer and could not fault the printer and can really recommend the printer for low to medium volume use.
