Impact matrix printers, or dot matrix printers as they are better known, were in the 1970s and 1980s the most common form of printer used as the personal computer during this era was still focused on the processing of text. Dot matrix printers of this time were notoriously loud and slow especially if the near letter quality or simulated typewriter quality mode, uniformly considered to be acceptable for business purposes, was employed. As the use of computers became more mainstream and their use in the world of business moved beyond word processing, dot matrix printers were replaced by inkjet and then laser printers that were capable of producing better quality print faster and quieter.
Dot matrix printers have all but disappeared as they are still widely used today in cash registers, ATM or bank machines, fire alarm systems as well as in point of sale or POS terminals. Though thermal printers are gradually replacing dot matrix printer technology, issues with thermal printing such as the quality and durability of the print hinders this advancement. Though dot matrix printers today can actually cost more than inkjet printers and laser printers, the cost of operating a dot matrix printer can offset this initial investment.
