HP DesignJet T120 ePrinter

 

The HP DesignJet T120 ePrinter is a modestly-priced wide-format (D-sized) printer geared to engineers and architects who need to output larger diagrams.

Prints from rolls, cut sheets, or ADF. Prints up to 24 inches wide. 4.3-inch color touch screen. Very good graphics quality. Web connectivity.

Some color issues with photos and graphics.

That said, when I printed some of my own photos out at poster size on plain paper from a roll, the images still looked impressive. Although the T120 is not geared to fine-arts printing, it does a credible job in outputting poster-sized photos for more...

Consumer review by: Mitch69Lawson (hp.com)

Works Great...Needs accessories

 

The printer works great and fits our needs well. The only drawback is the paper catching "tray". We print structural plans everyday and the paper catching feature does not catch and keep plans in order. They simply rollout and become unorganized. I...
