1. Success with HP 990Cse
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
Incase anyone cares, I got the HP 990Cse Professional Series printer working with the IBM OMNI printer driver download from Hobbes. It was FAR FAR FAR more easy to install on my OS/2 than on my Windows box! I never installed a printer on OS/2 before, and it was a simple as finding the Template for a printer, and I right clicked, said INSTALL, pointed it to the OMNI director, choose the 990C and pressed OK. That was IT!
I'm so very impressed! Apparently I could have just dragged the 990C driver to the desktop and that would have worked as well... easier still!
Anyways, I'm just happy as can be... this once again re-affirms my LOVE for OS/2!!!

If my experince can help anyone else, feel free to email me: rCore@swirvemail.com
Also, once I get a chance I'll install the USB Print drivers and see if I can use this puppy with my USB port... something that even the all mighty all powerful Windows cant do...

Just wondering if you compare the printouts from OS2 with Windows; how well are the printouts then? Text usually looks the same, but when printing photo images; same performance?

All I can say is that I am *VERY* impressed with the quality of the print out... I would say easily as good as the Windows printout, if not better. I still have to pick up some photo paper and compare that against what Windows did on photo paper, but plain paper printing is great.
(Now, I may be bias, but I do think the OS/2 print looked better than the Windows print.)

The driver even includes alot of features as well...

- Tray Selection :
Upper Tray - Letter - Plain Paper
Upper Tray - Letter - HP Premium InkJet Paper
Upper Tray - Letter - HP Premium Photo Paper
Upper Tray - Letter - Transparency
Upper Tray - A4 - Plain Paper
Upper Tray - A4 - HP Premium InkJet Paper
Upper Tray - A4 - HP Premium Photo Paper
Upper Tray - A4 - Transparency
Upper Tray - A5 - Plain Paper
Upper Tray - B5 - Plain Paper

- Print Quality :
Normal, Draft, Presentation

- Print Mode :
Black Only, Grey Scale, 24 Bit Black and Color

- Duplex Options : *** YES, it ACTUALLY Supports DUPLEX ***
1 Sided, 2 Sided Flip, 2 Sided Book

- Misc :
Colliate, Mirror Image, Form Feed Control, Monochrome Adjustments (darkness/gain), Monochrome Colors (Foreground/Background), N-up Printing (multiple pages per sheet), and some Booklet options...

So it is a VERY complete driver... I was quite surprised with the quality of it. Fast printing too. I could include some screen captures if you wanted of the driver setup pages, but they may seem anti-climatic...

I just found that the driver for the HP 995c ( same driver?) also works for the HP 1200d. I was very dissappointed when the 1200 driver didn't do duplex and was almost resigned to booting winx when I wanted to do two-sided printing but the HP995c driver works great. Better than the 1200 driver maybe in that it offers a presentation option where the 1200 only offers normal as top print job!
