IBM 4247 Dot Matrix Printer Review

Expert review of the IBM 4247 Dot Matrix printer

Our Verdict:

The IBM 4247 is a powerful dot matrix printer. It delivers good quality output from texts to graphics and it can handle six paper resources at the same time from continuous forms to cut sheet types. The IBM 4247 multi-form serial dot-matrix printer comes with built-in Ethernet for easy networking. The IBM 4247 printer is a bit old and has outdated emulations


This dot matrix printer comes in white, it measures 679.5 x 400 x 311.2 mm and weighs 24.55 kg. The IBM 4247 multi-form printer comes with an organised control panel with LCD display and function buttons. The 4247 forms printer has multiple input paths such as linking and paper parking. Print speed can go as fast as 1,100 characters per second. For connectivity, parallel, serial, and Ethernet ports are available.


Users will have no trouble sharing the IBM 4247 dot-matrix printer as it comes with Ethernet. With the 2 x 40 LCD display on the control panel, it is easy to read messages and the menu. Print speed is reasonable and the IBM 4247 matrix printer delivers solid, crisp, and professional output, capable of graphics like pie charts, CAD / CAM drawings, logos, and bar codes. Fortunately, the black IBM 4247 fabric ribbon can print up to 15 million characters for low output costs.


Since the IBM 4247 is an old printer, it does not offer modern connectivity options like USB. It is not compatible with new operating systems and it may be hard to find replacement parts and consumables from local shops. There are new inkjet and laser printers that can deliver output with better resolution, faster than the IBM 4247.
