Cheapest Multi-Lane Signature Capture Terminal Review L5200

multi-lane signature capture terminal l5200The Equinox L5200 is a reliable multi-lane terminal, and at a lower price than comparable Verifone and Ingenico signature capture terminals.

Over the years, our clients have used all the top three brands with varying reliability.  When buying a car, you can easily define good, better, best. That’s not so with multi-lane terminals.

Multi-Lane Differentiating Questions:

  • Will the unit fit in the space I have?
  • Do I have to get a stand for it?
  • Is the screen durable enough for my volume?
  • What is the cost of the extended warranty?
  • How long has it been in the market? (New product lines may have reliability problems.) Or, what’s been the reliability experience with similar customers?

The L5200 has a sister product, the L5300, which is basically the same product, but with a bigger screen. The L5200 is ideal for automotive, truck, distributors, business to business, and any retail locations desiring a reliable signature capture terminal, a small footprint, and not requiring an permanent stand.

Multi-lane Software: What will drive the units?

The L5200 can be used standalone with any virtual terminal that supports multi-lane, and with POS applications.
