You just want a dot matrix printer? Best way of doing this is pick a printer you are interested in, then search the web for Linux Compatibility.

For Dot Matrix Printing, I've always been fond of the Okidata Printers.

At 1066 Characters Per Second.. this is a pretty snappy Line Printer. http://www.okidata.com/mkt/html/nf/PM4410Home.html (the DP 1000 is 840 CPS max..)

The Okidata Printer has a better warranty than the DP 10000 as well..

This will work with Windows and DOS, should work with Linux as well.. it's just a character printer. Give it the right ASCII ESC codes and it should do what you want.

Thanks for your reply...

I want a printer which is equivalent to DP 10000 cost and performance wise..

Actually, I've to give it to my customer as the DP10000 printer is not in reapairable condition.

Pls suggest.

What is the cost of the DP 10000 ?

Sorry my recommendation Exceeds the performance of the DP 10000 but I didn't see another solution that exactly matched

$2600.00 for a printer of that speed is not outrageous as far as I'm aware.

a couple other options for you to review for specs..

Pls suggest which printer will be best as a replacement of the above printer (as a cost & performance wise). As well as warranty support would be easily available.

The specs are there.. YOU need to determine the best match cost and performance wise.

All those printers have the CPS listed (Characters Printed per Second),

Print speed and the number of pins on the print-head are the two main factors when choosing a pin printer.
The number of pages in your multi-part form might be a consideration if it's more than 3 pages thick.
