Discussion forum

Look for help in our forum for printers from various manufacturers.


Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.


Printing at the full resolution requires the Windows driver.
Ghostscript drives it at 300dpi.
Base memory is 512K; it is very slow. Seems to take regular SIMMs, 4M should help.
This is a cheap printer; operating costs surpass the cost of the printer before 10k pages!
The maximum 2400x600 mode is probably just 600x600 with smoothing.

Consumables/Refills: plain toner, fuser for $200 circa every 7500 pages!
