2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

Home / Hardware - CGP-220

The Radio Shack TRS-80 CGP-220 (Cat. No. 26-1268) is a color inkjet printer. "CGP" stands for "Color Graphics Printer" and the 220 was the second and final printer in Radio Shack's CGP series (the first was the CGP-115, which was actually a plotter rather than a printer). The 220 debuted in 1984's RSC-10, p.31 with a list price of $699.

Every CGP-220 came bundled with a cassette containing a CoCo color screen dump program in machine language. This despite the CGP-220 also being compatible with, and marketed to, non-CoCo and even non-Tandy/Radio Shack computer owners. This shows how committed to the CoCo Tandy was at the time, and helped to raise the CoCo's profile outside the CoCo community.


Overall, the CGP-220 was well-received by reviewers.
