Product Review: All-In-One POS Terminals

By The Business Solutions Network

Testing by Greg Nelson, VP and CTO, Gware POS

A VAR evaluates 7 sub-$1,300 all-in-one POS terminals and shares the pros and cons of each.

Last year, one of our most popular articles was a product review of all-in-one touch terminals. For that review, we worked with Greg Nelson, CTO of VAR and ISV GWare, who tested seven different units. To level our playing field, we asked each vendor for a unit that met a certain spec we wanted as a baseline. Price was not a consideration. Nelson conducted a series of tests and, in the end, we discussed the highs and lows of all the units reviewed.

This year, we wanted to do something a little different. Specifically, we received feedback from readers that, while they enjoyed reading about powerful machines going head-to-head, they often get asked by customers for low-priced options. Therefore, this time we asked each manufacturer to send us its best (highest spec) unit that was under $1,300 dealer cost. We didn’t care so much about the other specs. In the end, we were going to see who provides the most bang for the buck.
