HP Colorado Trakker 250
One of consumer-grade streamers. These units were cheaper,
slower and used parallel port or floppy interface instead of
SCSI. This unit has a strange parallel port interface, similar
to EPIA circuit.
The principle of operation is similar to all QIC tape streamers.

|Type: QIC-MC streamer, parallel port|
Notice how the tape is loaded in, it sticks out of the streamer and it's a normal thing. Last picture shows power supply pinout (DIN5, 1 - 16V AC 2A, 2 - Center tap, 3 - 16V AC, 4 - GND, 5 - nc)
