Most 64 graphic programs don’t exploit the highest density available on 9-pin printers dpi ; therefore, they can’t use the higher dpi resolution of pin printers. The printing speed of the KX-P is said to be as fast as that of the KX-P, but the real improvement is in the significantly lower noise level. It’s nice to have a printer with a variety of crisp internal LQ fonts. Single sheets or envelopes can be used after first “parking” the fanfold paper. When locked down, it tends to pull the paper a touch too vigorously, resulting in some characters having a dotted or broken appearance. Enter the new line of Panasonic machines.

It does pqnasonic easier once you work with it a while, but, initially, keep a bottle of aspirin and the manual handy. The printing speed of the KX-P is said to be as fast as that of the KX-P, but the real improvement is in the significantly lower noise level. The KX-P should be especially attractive to most Commodore owners.

Not only is the KX-P quieter than earlier models, it also has several new features with hardly any increase in price. The new buffer can hold approximately seven double-spaced pages of text! I found that, when using any of the double-pass printing modes, the output is better if the curved clear-plastic top of the removable pull-roller on top of the platen isn’t clamped down.
If your computer system is used for any text-based application and you need good quality professional printouts but cannot afford or justify the purchase of a laser printer, then the color-upgradable Panasonic KX-P with its two-year warranty is a reliable, efficient, and economical alternative. For 64 users, the primary advantage of using a pin printer would have to be in text-based applications. A “zero-inch tear off” is a convenient paper-saving feature that advances a recently printed sheet of fanfold for tearing and then retracts the blink sheet back to printing position.
In addition to ink, ribbons carry printr that help cool the printhead and protect it from damage. These would offer a truly highquality output option for those who want their documents printe look their best. Sound is measured on a log scale and each reduction by 3 dB decibels represents a percent reduction in volume.
One way to reduce noise even further with this printer is to adjust the printhead gap with the supplied lever. For 64 users, resident LQ fonts such as these pribter vital. Single sheets or envelopes can be used after first “parking” the fanfold paper. The KX-P becomes a seven-color printer by adding a relatively inexpensive color cartridge and motor option. Anything that could be done to make them quieter would be appreciated.
Before using the tear-off feature or fanfold parking panasoinc before loading for the first time, remember to set the top-of-form option. Most pin printers sound like a dentist’s drill and preclude any conversation nearby.

A typical 9-pin character uses a matrix of 18 x 18 dots, whereas a pin character uses a matrix of 30 x 24 dots and gets printed at roughly twice the 9-pin speed. This can be quickly demonstrated if you print a few lines without the ribbon through a quality sheet of carbon paper placed over the printer paper.
Single sheets can be fed from the top, and an optional sheet feeder is available. The KX-P can load fanfold paper either from the rear tractor push or the bottom tractor pull. Adding a Xetec Super Graphics Jr. This noise reduction has been achieved by adding thicker and bigger covers, foam blocks, and technology that Panasonic calls Quiet Touch.

When locked down, it tends to pull the paper a touch too vigorously, resulting in some characters having a dotted or broken appearance. Programs that allow you to define printer configuration files, such as The Write Stuff, also work with a minor effort. If your program supports only older Commodore printers, however, then you’re limited to using the interface-based Commodore fonts that generally don’t use the higher resolution prunter pin printers.
The pull is gentler, yet adequate, when the curved top is resting on the paper, not down all the way. Never print without the ribbon for more than a few lines, though.
By printing each line of characters in a single pass, it not only prints faster than its 9-pin ancestor, it also achieves smoother curves and diagonals panasonoc letters such as O, C, V and Y The downside is that most pin machines are noisy. A conventional nylon ribbon actually reduces the apparent sharpness of a pin printer. A pin printhead essentially has three offset columns of 8 pins each. The chatter appreciably diminishes as you move the printhead closer printfr the paper subject to paper thickness.
