What's the difference / comparison between the 2 Star TSP DoorDash compatible printers?

  • The Star Micronics TSP143 is the latest bluetooth model, with a USB tablet charging port, and prints at 250 mm per second.

  • The Star Micronics TSP654 has been on the market for 8 years, and prints at 300mm per second, ideal for a busy restaurant.
