1988 Panasonic KX-R305 Serial # 0FAMB006388 1988 Panasonic KX-R305 typewriter, Serial # 0FAMB006388 Steven Kuterescz's 1988 Panasonic KX-R305 typewriter. 2020-02-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 1988 Panasonic KX-R305 Serial # 0FAMB006388 These "secod generation" 5 kg, 11 cps KX-Rs (introduced in November 1988) are 1 kg lighter and 1 cps slower than "first generation" KX-R portable electronic typewriters (introduced in June 1987).
There's a noticeably cheaper grade of plastic throughout which makes you wonder about their durability.
The typing action is quieter than it is on original KX-Rs and the 11 cps print speed is just fast enough to pass muster.
Not bad, but I'll probably donate this one to the Salvos. It only cost me $5 AUD anyhow ;)
