Summary: i was needing a parallel printer to be able to utilize some of my old software. parallel printers are not available in any store in arkansas stores that i can find. I went on line and found a c88 printer. I purchased it about 2 months ago and it is exactly what i need. i highly recommend this printer and thank Epson for keeping this parallel printer available. I also have an artisan 1430 that I use for plotting maps that I highly recommend.
Summary: Did you know it is almost impossible to find a top loading printer that will do user defined sizes of envelopes? I have had this C88 for several years and would use it forever if it would last. I have searched the internet trying to find a new printer that will do envelopes.
Summary: This is a great, easy to use, simple printer which many people STLL want available, but many times are forced to buy printers which do "more" features, most of which are NEVER used. Please continue to mfg the C-88+ for us simple minded users who just want the features the C-88+ has. I have purchased, maybe, 5 or 6 C-88s, and I'd like the oportunity to do it again in the future. Thank you!
