  A friend of mine has an Atari 800XL and wishes to get a printer for it.
There are many good printers out there that have Centronics interfaces as
standard.  What he needs is a good and hopefully inexpensive interface
from his 800XL to a printer.
  Does anyone have any suggestions for an interface such as where he can
get one, price, and reliability.  Also, where would this interface plug into
on his Atari?
  Thanks in advance.

I have heard many, many comments about different interfaces for the
Atari line of computers, but none are as reliable or as supported as
the Atari 850 Interface.  They can be found through most mail order
places for about $70.  With one you can add both printers and modems.
I have 4 computers (three at home and one at my office), and I have
the 850 in both places.

Anyone have a better idea?
