"This is probably the most exciting piece of Radio ShackComputer Equipment I have ever owned!"
Let me say that again:
"This"is"the most exciting piece of Radio ShackComputer Equipment I have ever owned!"So What is This? "This is a high-performance, all-in-one priner for business applications.The patented heavy-duty hammerbank design prints crisp, clear characters one line at a time.It delivers superior quality - even in the data processing mode.
The DP mode prints up to150 lines per minute - that's twice as fast as any other Radio Shack printer!
The word processing mode prints up to 80 lines per minute and produces overlapping 10x12 dot-matrixcharacters for letter-quality statements and reports. The WP mode is code-compatible withRadio Shack word processing software (as well as other programs) for elongated and boldcharacters, underlines, super and subscripts.
The graphics mode is compatible with standardRadio Shack bit-image codes and allows generation of bar codes, enlarged characters, reverse images and more with the addition of appropriate software. Includes tractor with bottom feed for fanfold paper, labels and forms. It has a printer Parallel interface. U.L listed.
This monster has 17 Print Heads - each one printing less than an inch laterally. The papernever stops moving! The Ribbon Spool travels from spool to spool and so on untilit gets light enough for you to replace it. From memory they seemed to last forever.
I used two of these in the well known North American Car Rental System I developed.
Flawless! They performed flawlessly!
Here's your chance if you don't already have one of these in your collection!
