The Intermec 3400E is a monochrome thermal label printer. It uses both the direct thermal and thermal transfer technologies. It uses a serial interface and a wired technology. In terms of printing speed, it is reasonably fast. It is able to print as fast as 302.4 inches per minute. Without the drivers however, it might be impossible to make the print outs from the personal computer. This is because the Intermec 3400E is not a plug and play device. Also, there are several editing and formatting features for the labels that have to be done with the PC. To get the Intermec 3400E driver, simply follow this link.
