This was my first printer, the white one, see http://home.delfi.ee/aavo/mps1000.html I'm not sure if it is interesting from inside, but from the programming standpoint it is very interesting, as in addition to the normal Commodore mode, it has IBM 5152 Plus mode (i.e. IBM Graphics printer). The difference between IBM Graphics and Epson is the resolution, which is 240x216 dpi (runs three passes) instead of Epson's 240x144 dpi (only two passes). If there's interest I could do some scans from the manual... Aavo Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
