Purchased the z3200ps to replace the hp designjet 500.

 

unless you really need a high detail photo plotter you may want to look else where, i am sure there are less expensive plotters that use fewer cartridges.

Does a great job for printing a highly detailed photos, thats if you start with a photo with a 8 meg + or larger file size. Does a good job with rolled or sheet fead paper

Its very expensive to maintain the ink. To replace all the ink costs over $1100.( it uses 12 large ink cartridges.)the plotter shuts down if the ink cartridge passes the exp. date or the cartridge gets close to empty, (not empty). Which seems to waste in

So far so good

 

Our cartography studio has had this machine only a few days. It replaces an HP 1055cm that reliably ran countless prints over seven years or more. That four-ink printer actually produced better results on plain paper than the new Z3200ps does. However...

On-board colorimeter, easy paper loading, fast hardware RIP. Printer functions as stand-alone print server for multi-workstation office. Both matte and glossy blacks are online; no waste ink when switching media

Poor results on uncoated paper, even smooth, white, heavy-weight stock. Must use coated media. Still plenty of gotcha's in color-managed print procedures. Very large chassis: 70 inches wide x 27 inches deep (44-inch print width)

I was part of a team to decide how to replace our aging/finicky Epson 7600. Of course, without thinking, the first choice was an Epson 7900. Although, at some point early in the decision making process we were reminded of Epson's competitors -- HP and...

I would rate my tech and photography skills as amateur - plus. This was a significant purchase for me and I spent some time researching and comparing. The printer, all the features and software that comes with it is incredible. It truly lives up to any...
