    Anyone remember this old beast? I had one with an old Mac SE/30 and it worked very well, but only has a SCSI interface. My other printer seems to have died and I'm wondering if there's some kind of SCSI <-> USB connector available to attach this to my PB 800. Any one done this??

    Try:
    http://www.datapro.net/products/USB-SCSI.html

    Apple Macintosh with
    OS version 8.6 or newer to connect to
    SCSI peripherals through the USB bus.

    Simply insert the SCSI connector into
    the peripheral and plug the USB
    connector into the computer.

    The LaserWriter II had a LocalTalk interface.

    Actually, there was one model that came with a SCSI interface.

    This was, in fact, one of the SCSI-based units not the LocalTalk one. I wish it was a LocalTalk one 'cuz then I could use this handy LocalTalk <-> USB adapter I already own! :)

    About the price -- I agree. Thanks for all the pointers though. It was a great printer and I was just looking for a way to leverage it w/o spendning a ton of cash.
