Direct thermal receipt printers and thermal transfer receipt printers use heat instead of ink to print on coated thermal media. Impact and dot-matrix printers are suitable for printing on multi-part paper, such as receipts with customer and merchant copies. Some POS receipt printers can print in two colors to help draw attention to particular words or messages on the receipt. A parallel, serial, or USB port allows a receipt printer to be connected to a computer. An Ethernet port or wireless capabilities may enable it to be connected to a computer network. Receipt printers can be used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale.Bixolon manufactures point-of-sale (POS) printers, label printers, mobile printers, peripherals, and accessories.

I guess it would depend on the software you are running for your POS system. I did have to change some dip switch settings but was able to figure it out by taking my time and reading! Once set up it has worked great and the price was right. This is not something that you should hurry to set up because if you need to make adjustments it can be a little tricky but if you take your time and get it right it will work great.
