Erm, I've a LA-75 hooked to my VT-420 on my PDP-11/73. One useful bit of
info is that it takes Apple ImageWriter ribbons same as several other
printers, such as one of the old IBM's, so ribbons are easy to get and
cheap. Someone posted info a while back on how to check the settings when
I was asking about mine. Unfortunatly I don't have a manual.
