One issue is that the 820 was one of the first host-based printers HP
made. It only understands basic graphics commands. It requires full
duplex communication between the computer and printer. I don't believe
any other driver will work with it, except possibly the 7xx series,
which were also host-based.
I know it's an OK printer, but even the cheapest printer you can buy now
will have better output. You can probably buy one for less than the cost
of cartridges for the 820.
