The literature says: "Postscript Level II imaging". I don't know if this is consistent with your description or

Well, you are mistaken about something. This printer has _three_ Centronics ports, two are SCSI, and the
other is smaller, the size of a parallel port. My theory is that this is the difference between a Model 2004,
which is documented in web literature, and Model 2005, of which there may have been few examples (since
this one is evidently number 17).
