CBM Printer History /compatibility

Date: 2001-12-10 12:19:31

Hi All,

I do not have a 1525 printer, but as I understand it, this is the oldest and
most basic of the Commodore Serial-IEC bus printers.

This was followed by the 801/803, which have identical commands to the 1525

The 802 has extended formatting control codes.

Then came the MPS1000 and MPS1200 which in addition to FX80 emulation, have
extended Commodore modes.

Additionally, the earlier 1525/801/803 machines are 60DPI, whilst the
MPS1000/1200 are 80DPI in their lowest resolution.

Is the above correct?
