back around 1991 i had bought the sr3000 model. it's an old 9pin dot matrix
printer, and for the most part, seems to be compatible with the epson fx-85.
i was able to find replacement ribbons for it at sears also. i was kinda
thrilled to see it had a serial port, but then again, it was only for C=
models. if anyone needs more info, i still have the owner's manual for mine.
as a side note, i had it plugged into my laser128 running GEOS, the mac like
interface that ran on the machine but never could get the sr3000 to work, the
only driver GEOS had was for the sr2000.
