Citizen CMP-20 Series Bluetooth Mobile/Wireless Receipt Printer Review


Hello, and welcome to a POSCatch.com
product presentation, and today we are presenting the Citizen CMP-20 mobile
receipt printer. This is the Citizen CMP-20; this is a two
inch wide receipt in this one. They do have a three inch version, and
that would be the CMP-30. This one right here is a Bluetooth
connectivity. It will do a Bluetooth connectivity to a
Windows or Android device; if you want to do a bluetooth connectivity to an iOS
device, such as an iPad or an iPhone, you do need a different model than this one. It
is still a CMP-20, but it would be the CMP-20i for iOS
compatibility so very important to note that there’s two different ones, one for Windows and Android and another one for iOS only. If you notice on this particular version it has a magnetic strip so you can read credit cards. However, with the new EMV transition to
the chip cards not advisable to use this. However, it would still be good to use for
say employee cards or gift cards. You can purchase a CMP-20 without the magnetic
strip reader; this is optional on this particular device right here. If you
notice here we have the the indicator lights. We have your power light, this is also your battery light as well, it shows you the charge. And we have your feed button and then also your
power button here as well. This is your AC adapter and just plugs
into a regular power outlet. Over here is your USB port so you can actually do a connection to your computer via mini USB
port right here or a Serial port. Let’s put this down here. This is just your standard micro-usb
cable, it plugs right in, and this is also a data cable as well. So if you
want to communicate via USB cable and not over Bluetooth you can do that on
this cable. And then as far as attachments goes… this is your belt clip; you just put it right
on there and then you can just put it right on your belt or like that. And then
also for another carrying option it comes with a strap, really nifty to
have and then that goes in these two hooks right here and then you can just
hang it like that. This is an optional item by the way. The
belt clip comes standard with it, but this is optional for this right here. So
we’re actually going to do a test print right now so you can see how this
printer performs…put this right here …let’s go ahead and do a test print. This is doing a Windows print test page
right now. OK, that was fairly fast for a mobile
printer actually. As you may already be aware, mobile printers are not quite as
fast as desktop printers. They are limited on their speed, but that’s
actually pretty fast for the amount of data that it was able to print on
that. This particular unit right here is available from Citizen; like I said this
is the 2 inch version, and they also have a 3 inch version as well. And Citizen America has been in the US channel for
many years now, and they also have USA based tech support. I know their USA
tech support is pretty awesome because we’ve used that before ourselves and
they are very responsive to their customers needs. If you have any further questions about
this particular product right here please don’t hesitate to give us a call
