First Look Review: Compact 24” printer is just the right size for small offices that are short on space.

The HP Designjet T120 appears to be a good solution for the small office or one-person operation. However, if print speed is the most important feature for you, then you should consider another options. Otherwise, the excellent print quality, small...

Defective on Arrival

 

Upon arrival of the product I notice scratches on the bottom as well as many other dings. It looked as if the product had been installed before. My guess is this printer had failed once before and was refurbished. After the quick installation process...

Good Item- Terrible instructions

 

This is a quality item, but the instruction for set up have a lot to be desired. Not to be set up by anyone born before 1980 as you have to be tech savvy to figure it out. Had problem with first unit and had to return it. CDW gave me no hassle in that...
