It's gotten so that printers are inexpensive, and the hassle involved with
getting an older slower printer to work may not be worth the effort.
This happened to me with older epson dot matrix printers some years ago,
then with couple of cannon printers, a panasonic laser, and finally a
brother all in one. My epson R300 is starting to show it's age. Funny
enough, I have a cannon S750 that ""knock on wood" has turned out to be an
inexpensive to operate, long lived printer. So far it's outlasted two newer
printers, a brother and several older printners. It may even outlast the
R300, which was originally bought to replace the S750.
