The Brother M-1024X is a 24-dot matrix impact printer released in Japan in 1985 for use with MSX computers. It has support for Kanji-ROM Level 1 (JIS1), with an option to upgrade to JIS2.

It was also sold by Sanyo as Sanyo KA-M-1024X.

A cost reduced version was released in July of 1986 as M-1024IIX, National FS-P400 or Sony PRN-M24. Later, JIS2 support was included in 1987 with the Sony PRN-M24 TypeII.
