Amstrads first printer. DMP Stands for Dot Matrix Printer.

A very basic unit which had no descenders on letters such as y,j,q, or p, leaving for a very strange looking printout. This could be corrected (when using TasWord), but using the TasPrint program, but the effect was often not totally satisfactory.

It took only tractor feed paper and had no option or ability to accept single feed sheet.

Ribbons were tiny in comparison to other makes and ran out very quickly - they were, however, very easy to re-ink a few times.
