Review: HP DesignJet Z2100 Printer


This 24" large-format printer is amazingly well-designed and well-constructed. It's also speedy and easy to use. But the true measure of a printer is its output quality. How does the Z2100 compare to its Epson and Canon rivals?

One thing that Ben did not catch. Both the Z2100 and Z3100 use a part that holds that paper down called a star wheel. HP is aware that this star wheel bar pokes little holes in any paper you put through the machine. The issues is that with glossy paper...

I am very happy with this printer, but HP should think harder about a physical guide for single sheet loading.

Excellent instructions, packaging, etc. High quality printer, great colors, fine detail.

Very heavy and large. Can''t understand why there is no physical paper guide, rather than just a white line to eye-ball.
