I've given a couple of the Diablo KSRs (that's what the Hitypes with the
keyboard were known as).  I didn't care for them much--no immediacy of
sound and keypress--the two seem unrelated.

Daisywheel printers are incredibly difficult to get rid of--nobody wants
to pay shipping.  I got rid of the last one by throwing in a complete
system with it.   Still have a NEC Spinwriter mouldering away.
