Cheap Dot Matrix Printer

by Benjamin H. Cohen

I've always had a daisy wheel printer at home. It gives good appearance, but it's a bit slow. When I saw a message on CBBS #1 (the first Computerized Bulletin Board System) that CCS Computers in Palatine had some Star Gemini 10-X printers on close-out for $125.00 I contrived to get out there one afternoon. I bought two. The Gemini 10-X printer is a 120 CPS 9 pin dot matrix printer. lt prints 60 CPS in 'enhanced' mode.

NewWord supports the Gemini 10-X fully, and its graphics mode with Bradford gives a 'near letter quality' look. It was a bargain, though it's a bit noisier than current but more expensive Epson models. They may still have a few when you get this.
