  • John Marszal 13 September 2012 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Fantastic rugged printer that is always ready to print

    I bought this dot matrix printer so I could always have a ready to go rugged, long lasting printer. Unlike inkjet printers that clog unless used often, these printers can sit turned off for months, then spring back into life when needed. This printer will never let you down when you need it, and rather than the ink running out completely, the ribbon fades so you can always get just a few more pages out if needed. It hardly uses any power (20 watts) and has a small, compact footprint. I would advise not to panic when your first few sheets come out with the page misaligned / slanting text since it takes a little practice to be able to load cut sheet A4 paper. Better still buy A4 computer listing paper to have a ready folded printout that is easy to separate into individual sheets. The service from Printerland was second to none! They are so nice on the phone and very approachable!
