What do you currently have?
I like Epsons for one main reason: all Epson dot-matrix (and many/most
inkjets) from the MX-80 onward are upward compatible, IOW all the ones
I've tried understand the Epson ESC/P command set and all provide
useable minimum capabilities if you tell your software its dealing with
an MX-80 (9-pin 80/132 character dot-matrix command set).
This certainly works for the parallel port MX-80, LQ-400 and LQ-550 dot
matrix printers as well as for the Stylus 850C inkjet. Epson printers
are well-supported by CUPS too.
