TSC vs. Zebra: A Rivalry in Excellence

When you hear the word Zebra, it’s logical to bring up an image of a black and white striped horse-like creature. But in the barcode and labeling industry, when one refers to Zebra, they are talking about Zebra Technologies, an industry leader in label printing equipment.

Zebra Technologies has been in the barcode and labeling business for over 44 years. Time and time again, they have proven to be a highly respected company, with high-quality products, service and printing technologies that are difficult to match – or so we thought.

A while ago, EIM had the chance to test another brand of printer and decided to give our customers more options…

TSC printerTSC Auto ID Technology and its parent company, Taiwan Semiconductor Company, (TSC for short) offer printers that are very comparable to Zebra in respect to printing quality and features… along with a few other perks that sweeten the deal. Many people do not realize it but Taiwan Semiconductor actually engineered the very first desktop printers for Zebra, so they definitely know what they are doing. It’s not surprising that they decided to offer their own first-rate line of desktop printers. What is more important however, is that they sell at much lower prices.

Along with this price incentive, TSC also offers a two-year printer warranties and a one year print head warranties. (Zebra offers one-year printer and six month print head warranties.) TSC even has a “no-questions-asked 30 day return policy” so if you buy one of these printers and find out it just doesn’t fit your needs, you can easily return it and get your money back.

If you are looking for a label printer with high quality, low prices and easy-to-use features, TSC is definitely worth considering! Contact our Label Experts if you are interested in learning more about the TSC models we offer.
