I am fondly remembering my dad's letter quality printer from ages ago.  
It was a daisy wheel I think.  Printed beautifully... loved the 
tacktacktatack and then the nice little whirr as the carriage returned. 
  I think it actually printed in both directions alternatingly but you 
got occasional non-printing returns... sounded like a screen door 
hydraulic as it travelled along the bar.  And of course my original 
home PC's printer a Citizen 120D.  Nice little dot matrix printer.  I 
still had it up until a few years ago... in fact my dad might have it
