Designjet 100 Large Format Plotter
This review is from: HP Designjet 130R C7791H Up to 2400 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality InkJet Large Format Color Printer
Pros: Excellent price for a large format ('D' 22"x34") printer. Very low ink usage. (On the order of 1000+ 22x34 plots on the first set of cartridges) Excellent print quality. Low noise levels. With the roll feeder, you can feed it a 20 page job, go out for lunch and have it be done when you get back (When it works).
Cons: I have the optional Roll feed. Very Irritating. When the paper mis-feeds plan on spending 30 to 45 minutes (and lots of cussing) to get it running again. I have used as a plotter for 4 years and have now used 6 printheads and 6 ink cartridges. ALWAYS keep a spare set of printheads on hand if you dont want to be down for 1.5 days while overnighting a replacement. (I never had a ink suddenly stop but have now had ALL 6 printheads die in th elast 2 years, with no warning)
Other Thoughts: Great idea having replacement printheads, seperate from ink. HUGE ink cartridges, good for 1000's of 22x34 plots of circuit board layouts (80% page coverage at draft inkflow settings). The roll feeder is a great idea when it works which is only when you do not have a rush job. On rush jobs, plan on it misfeeding and having to individually feed sheets of paper. HP service manual calls this a "Ultra Low End Large Format Pinter"
