My first printer was an Epson RX80 FT Dot matrix printer. Black printing only. Cost 399 but replacement ribbons were only about 2 or 3 quid IIRC and they seemed to last for ages.

I've no idea what the winzip is that you are referring to. The only winzip I am aware of is a Windows cmputer program for file archiving and compression.
