It’s a pain when you start looking to repair your printer or you start looking for a replacement, and you find out the “maker” discontinued your machine. That’s what IBM did with the IBM/InfoPrint 4247. But you aren’t “out of luck.” Because…
IBM never made the IBM 4247 printer. Compuprint made the printer for Big Blue. IBM just blessed it with their logo. And continued to put their name on it for almost 20 years.
No One Ever Got Fired for Buying an IBM
Or a Compuprint 4247 . . .
WAY BACK on September 12th, 1995 IBM announced:
IBM is extending its serial impact printer family with the announcement of the IBM 4247 Printer, a heavy-duty serial impact matrix printer capable of printing high speeds of 700 characters per second (CPS) and providing new multiple forms paper handling capabilities.
Little did IBM know how long those first 4247 printers would last. Tough, rugged printers that keep on working year after year after year.
