Hi all... I just purchased a 19BII off eBay ,and I want to get an IR printer, does anybody know what the difference is between the 82240A and the 82240B printers? Are they both compatible with the 19BII?

Thanks in advance,


The basic differences are the character set -slightly different, expanded in the B version- and a one-dot extra space line added to the printout (text only) of the B version. In fact, the extra space line results from shrinking the text by one line. If I am not wrong, there is also a LED -ON- in the B version that does not exist in the A version. If I am wrong, we'll soon know.

The B version replaced the A one shortly after it's been launched.


The B also have some power saving features. Purchase a B. Because they go for around the same price more or less [ assuming you're buying on ebay]
