Very Good Basic Dot Matrix Printer

Advantages: Quick reliable dot matrix printer
Disadvantages: Just remember it is a dot matrix

I have used these printers on and off for over 12 years. They are generally reliable and good for a 9 pin dot matrix. Some early ones had problems with weak drive gears, but later ones are fine. I had to go through about 50 of these looking for dodgy g ...

A possible use for portable printers

Advantages: Portable, durable
Disadvantages: Still not completely sure of its usefulness

As regular readers of my reviews will know, I work with technology. I am constantly exposed to new technology and often excited by the promise of what it can deliver. All too often the reality underachieves the promise and I have to revise my expectations ...

What an amazing printer

Advantages: Amazing prints, fantastic dpi, very quiet
Disadvantages: Occasional paper misfeed

Mammoth A3 printer

Advantages: Prints onto A3 paper / card!
Disadvantages: Only 2 cartridges - black and tri-colour

Well, to start at the beginning, this printer is capable of printing on media up to A3 size (420 x 297 mm), or twice the size of A4! This means you can print larger posters, signs etc, but also means the printer is slightly bigger than the average inkjet ...
