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...

The Z2100 is a great printer, with a tremendous amount of bang for a very modest buck. This is a must consider for anyone looking for a large format printer. The print quality is very high and it prints on a great variety of media. So far I've tried it...

HEWLETT PACKARD DESIGNJET Z2100 24IN PHOTO PRINTER CUST PAYS FRT

 

Now that I spent 3 days searching for 24" vinyl and finally found it I''m happy with my purchase.

This product was easy to emble. It had wonderful instructions. It is also very user friendly

I bought this printer at the advice from an HP online advisor. I told her that my main purpose for choosing this was to print onto adhesive back vinyl and banner material. it does that. What she didn''t tell me is how hard it is to come across 24"...

DESIGNJET Z3100 24IN PHOTO PRINTER

 

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.
