We used their band printers a lot in the early to mid 80's.  They were 
very good printers.

Printronix moved to across the street from where I worked on Myford in 
Tustin some years after that and made a good run, but I never used 
Printronix after the P300 and P600.  Next ones we used were CI-300's, 
600's and 900's because we got an OEM deal thru them, and the above 
mentioned Data Products band printers for applications requiring such 
character sets, rather than the dot matrix.

Data Products was a great company for sure.  Still glad to have the 
2230's I have.
