Designjet 1050c Plus

 

From pen plotters to laser and inkjet printers, Hewlett-Packard has consistently set the bar, and it continues to serve the design and engineering communities well with superior large-format printers.

For printing line drawings and photorealistic renderings, handling one sheet at a time or running all night unattended, the Designjet 1050c Plus is a versatile and capable performer.

HP Deskjet 1050A

 

HP's Deskjet 1050A is a basic all-in-one at an entry-level price.

Not black, Cartridge recycling program, Quick power-up

Mediocre speed, External power supply, Tri-colour cartridge can be wasteful

HP Deskjet 1050 All in One Printer

 

The support for the stand-up paper feed tray at the back lays flat on the printer's top when not in use. The output tray folds down from the front and an unusually chunky page support extends forwards. It's a simple design, but works very effectively....
