The DP8340 was the first POS printer manufactured by Star but such is its uniqueness that there is still high demand for it today.

An extremely robust and reliable printer, it is the only small dot matrix printer on the market capable of printing on paper up to 114mm wide and with the option of a 12V power supply, making it an ideal mobile printer to install in lorries and vans printing delivery invoices.  Its high reliability and low cost means the DP8340 is also suitable as a data logging or record printer in unattended environments.
