This printer was surely an inexpensive ploy on consumers. Out of the box, you got a slow dot-matrix printer that did not have true decenders, and did not have the standard tractor-feed mechanism for using the printer paper of its day. For an additional price, you could get: a ROM with true-decenders and the tractor-feed mechanism. Heh. With the release of the "264 Series" computers, Commodore repackaged this printer in the same charcoal black of that series.
