SAM4s ER-940 vs THE sam4S ER-5200M

The SAM4s ER-5200M has been on the market for some time now and has been a terrific cash register with it's large keyboard and two station printer. Last year SAM4s released the ER-940 model cash register which will eventually replace the 5200M register.

That does not mean the SAM4s 5200M is not still a viable register. For example if you already owned 5200M cash registers and had a program developed that you like why not continue to buy them. you know how they work, you know the reports and you can save time and money by transferring the program with the utility software.

If you are in the market for the first time for a cash register I would not recommend the 5200M but rather steer you towards a SAM4s ER-940 or one of the other 900 series registers and the reasons are numerous.

Both the 5200M and the ER-940 are very similar. Both have a large flat keyboard, both have a two station printer with receipt and journal and both have the ability to interface with the Datacap Twin Tran credit card interface.

Where they are different is in the fact the SAM4s ER-940 has an SD card port for backing up and restoring you program, also the machine features flash rom technology so you can upgrade your cash register as SAM4s release new versions of it. The SD card port is worth making the change as it will allow you to deploy new machines completely programmed in just a matter of minutes after your original register has been programmed.
