Okidata's Microline 490 is a 24-pin dot matrix printer, engineered for a variety of applications. The 490 is built to last, no matter what your finance department, order desk, or shipping department may do to it! The durable printhead is designed to strike hard enough to be clear even on 5-part forms, while a optical sensor makes sure the printhead is accurately aligned, so your checks and forms come out clearly printed and professional-looking. The printer even prevents waste by automatically positioning your continuous forms for a clear tear along the perforations.

The printer runs on a rack-and-pinion system, which lasts far longer then belt or cable drive systems, and the efficient motor is designed for minimal friction, to prevent heat damage. Even at 475 cps speed, the internal fan it running cool. The tough, impact-resistant chassis keeps your investment safe, even under less-than-gentle use! If you're tired of replacing dainty little show-pony printers, it's time to upgrade to this Clydesdale of the printer world!

4 out of 5 eggsUsefullish

Pros: Clean prints, fairly quick, doesn't over heat, slip, or cycle often. Easy to align preprinted forms.

Cons: Bad about paper feeding if paper dust isn't regularly cleaned out. Tends to cause the fees to slip or completely jam.

Other Thoughts: Used this model for about 3 years in a small business. It was subjected to lots of dirt and dust as there was no closed office space. Aside from the occasional jam due to poor maintenance, it held up fine and did it's job. It is now being used by another start up company for the last 4 years.
