    Jordan:

    While East Coast condos are overrated 😉 I am curious whether you could identify the EMV unit that is used by Walgreens? It is the only one that approaches the turnaround time of an old magnetic stripe reader, and I’d like to figure out whether the company is public—Veriphone, a first mover in the industry, is annoyingly slow.

    Any thoughts? Many thanks,
    Larry

      Hello Larry,

      That’s a good question. I can’t say I can identify the EMV unit Walgreens uses. I’ll check the next time I stop in. I did find an article detailing a list of the best EMV devices (according to CarpPaymentOptions.com). Based purely on appearance (from the photo in the article), it might be the Equinox L5200, but I can’t be certain. I’ll keep looking into it and let you know if I figure it out.

      Best,
      Jordan
