How would they compare to the Okidata dot matrix printers? I take it ,
that they are slower, since the oki's seem to be quite fast, to me any way.
Given the choice would you get a UNISYS AP 1339/Okidata (391?), or an
IBM Proprinter III XL?
The Oki is 24 pin, and Greg says the Proprinter III XL is too.
In case you haven't guessed, I already have the Unisys badged Okidata,
but am considering giving it to my grandmother, to replace her old
Epson. She is mostly retired, but still runs her "History" buisiness on
a limited basis. She sells autographs/letters of past historical
figures, and still sends out a mailing list once a year.
