This printer serves me as a scrap printer. Some of the characters are somewhat blurred, but it serves the purpose of a backup printer.

Tried to set it up using the Cd supplied. Then I downloaded from the internet. Still did not work. Went to laptop #2, loaded software, it worked. Came back to #1 laptop, loaded software from the internet, and guess what now both computers can use the same printer.

Excellent Printer

By

from Islamabad, PK

I bought Epson LX-300+ (predecessor of LX-300+II) about 10 years ago. Used it for a few years but got stolen. Just bought LX-300+II. Great, durable printer. Very stylish and compact. I use it with WP 5.1 for DOS. Per its user manual, graphic resolution is 240x144 dpi. From the way it prints NLQ, resolution may be more than that (my guess). It could be a typo in manual.
