@mike iconic printer. a legacy long since squandered by its corporate overseers but unarguably best in class for hella long.
@djsundog @mike i had a freecycled laserjet II for a couple of years. it was an absolute fortress of a printer, and i regret that it was too heavy to chuck in the car when the long-term relationship during which i acquired it came to a crashing halt, because i'm pretty sure that in addition to that marriage it would have outlasted every printer i've owned in the ~14 years since.
Yes the LaserJet II was a workhorse. Many years ago I was with a group of engineeres started a small company. We where around 16 people sharing that one printer using the bookkeepers pc as a print server. We all ran OS/2 on the PC's at that time.
I still remember the smell of ozone in the office.
@mike @djsundog I had an LJ5, second hand after some office gave up on it, and it lasted me for well over a decade. Heavy, though. My current cp1515n looks to be largely identical except colour and more plastic than metal. It also jams more often. And yet, I've also had it for half a decade or so with no sign of it failing.
