Dear Nancy,

did you succeed in changing the old matrix printer?

We have bought a low priced RTI Tapechek 490 (Version 3.6 E) at Ebay
this year and we now use an old Canon BJ-300 bubble jet printer. It is
connected to the Centronics-interface of the RTI 490 via a normal
printer cable (not USB) and works very well.

With kind regards

We own a RTI Tapechek model 490 with an old Epson LX 810 dot matrix
printer attached. We would like to replace the printer.

Is anyone else using a different printer with this model of the Tapchek
that you could recommend.
