Excerpt: We have one in our office and it never works right, ever. It takes forever to load the paper and then you can never get the print job to print correctly, no matter how you adjust the settings.
Cons: Flimsy Construction, Hard To Use, Jams Easily, Unreliable
Excerpt: chose this to replace my works ancient 1990s hp designjet 650c, which still used paralell ports and had to be hooked up to a desktop as a print server. This new one doesnt need a pc anymore, it has its own networking built in and even has its own webpage to configure settings, like a router does.
Summary: 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 800.
Summary: Still testing the new product, and of course would like it to print like my old Plotter a designjet 430. So far, it doing what I need it to do, just tweeking and trying to find out how to print with out having to press the continue to print on the screen, because it detects something is wrong.
Summary: 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 printing trays like the 130nr did.
Summary: Nice quality prints. A colleague of mine also bought this printer and was having some trouble with print quality that I did not experience.I suspect it might be the PDF created by Autocad. I use the Mac print utility for PDF creation.
Summary: Here is a warning to anyone considering this printer (and potentially any other large format HP printer) for banner printing. This printer will not pause in the middle of a print job when one of the ink cartridges is depleted.
