We need to upgrade our system at work to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.  We need to find a dot-matrix printer to print our multi-part forms.  We have been using an Epson FX-980 and FX-890N under OS X 10.4 (Classic Mode).  I've tried to use the FX-890N (newer) using the Epson 9-pin driver supplied with OS X 10.7.  The print quality is so bad it's almost illegable.  I also tried different fonts in the hopes to improve print quality but have not been able to improve.


We have GOT to get to OS X 10.7 Lion, but cannot give up our impact printing capability.  We are willing to buy a new impact printer if needed.


Please HELP!!!
