Selected FAQ

Q:
What are the differences between the LX-300 and the LX-300+?
A:
The LX-300+ printer is very similar to the LX-300, only better. It's faster, more reliable, and accommodates more copies per multi-part form (1 original plus 4 copies). It is backward compatible with the LX-300, so there should be no problems using the current software. This table summarizes the basic specification differences for the two models.
