The Bottom Line

ISSN: 0888-045X

Article publication date: 1 January 1992


Acquiring a major new piece of equipment is usually exciting. You have great expectations of all the new things you can accomplish. But the experienced computer person also expects some difficulties, especially when that new piece of equipment is a printer. In my experience — confirmed by articles in the computer press — perhaps 90 percent of the most common problems in microcomputing involve the printer. The problems range from poor ribbons to the incompatibility of your favorite piece of software with your new WhizBang 1300 Print Machine. Consequently, it's nice to be able to say that I've been delighted with my new Hewlett‐Packard LaserJet III printer. It was a cinch to install, the print quality is as good as its press notices, and it's quiet. Generally speaking, my software has even been able to make use of all its features.
