Great plotter for the price.

 

Very clear prints. Fairly fast printing. I talked to a HP sales representative and they were very helpful to answer all my questions. I recommend this plotter for a small company.

Great plotter

 

This is the ideal plotter for a small office. It is reasonably priced and produces quality plots very quickly. I have been using an HP 250c plotter that I purchased twenty years ago. Although it has been very reliable it is sheet-fed. The T520 is...

Excellent plotter

 

We had a previous HP printer, a 130NR, 24". Very old but it did the job. Had a few quirks that we managed to work around. FInally decided on a 36" printer and came back to HP. Chose the T520 cause it was the cheapest 36" we could find. Could not be...

TERRIBLE for high volume printing

 

My company has a 25+ year old Designjet that out-performs this new e-printer... it is the most temperamental machine I've ever worked with. The HP software package for ePrinting is a complete disaster and we eventually maneuvered to network the...

46 year user of HP wide format printers

 

This machine works faster and with better quality than expected. I finally had to retire my old HP500 Designjet and this new T520 works circles around my old '500'. It is wireless, can be shared and you can even use it with USB cable if desired. I do...

Poor quality equipment

 

I have owned 2 HP plotters over the past 15 years. My last Designjet 800 was a workhorse, lasted for 10 years and croaked a few weeks ago. I needed a plotter fast, so my choice was the Designjet T520 because it "looked" like the plotter to replace my...

Fair replacement of HP130nr

 

We had the HP 130nr for about 8 years and loved it for our small office. It recently died and we purchased this printer as a replacement. Haven't used it a lot yet, but so far it seems ok on the printing side. The one down side is that it does not have...

T520 Large Format

 

HP large formats are the best. The T520 was simple to setup, fast plotting, and very good quality for money spent.
