The 2767A was a narrow-carriage full-character printer with a maximum print speed of 356 lines per minute (when printing all 80 columns). The 2767A was a "drum" impact printer. A rotating drum containing all characters sat behind the ribbon and paper which was impacted by hammers to create the image of each character. HP OEM'd the 2767A from Dataproducts (model 2310).
The 2767A also came in a bundled configuration (interface card, cables, etc) for 2000/1000 computers. The part number was 12984A.
