Summary: I worked for about 12 years as a full time draftsman may years ago and we always had HP Design Jet plotters. So 2 years ago when I was asked to select plotters for the company I now work for, I chose HP Design Jet 111. They are a piece of junk.
Summary: Avoid this printer completely. It is a total disaster. You will spend hours trying to print a simple document. Documents sent to this printer result in a loud beep, then nothing happens. Cryptic symbols flash on the display, and there's no indication why the document won't print.
Incredible bang for the buck - Good outweighs the bad

Summary: Since this model is no longer in production, I am writing this from the perspective of buying one used. I have owned this printer for several years, having bought it used myself. All the one star reviews are way too negative, in my opinion.
Our old 130nr finally gave out after 7 good years of service.

Summary: The printer itself is a fine printer. The 130 is not Network Ready (I assume that is what nr stands for), but we had the 130nr model before, and after many years of service, it finally gave out on us.
Summary: I've owned the HP Designjet 130 C7791C for several years. After trying to load the roll paper (unsuccessfully) 8 times this morning (truly) I decided to take a break to write this review before being 100% consumed by frustration.
Summary: while I can say that I have not had the same issues as some users of this printer (the printer itself is functional, I have had few printing errors etc.) where I have the issue with is the maintenance software for the device.
Summary: The company I work for had this sitting on a shelf. It was purchased by a previous manager and never used. My current manager decided it would be a great time saver for some of our projects and had me get it set up. I has been nothing but a pain in my rear.
Summary: This printer will try to kill you. Not in a gruesome horror movie kind of way but in a raise your blood pressure to boil and eventually cause a heart attack kind of way. Where to begin? Loading paper -- individual sheets or using the optional roll feeder -- is nearly impossible.
Summary: We purchased this plotter several years ago and have used it consistently at a low level for construction drawings and graphics (architectural firm). It has never really worked well-- trouble with loading paper, various error codes and color problems-- but recently the print color quality has...
Summary: If u r looking for a $1200 machine that beeps everytime then this is for u!!! I have yet to successfully print ANYTHING on this printer. All it does is spit the paper out no matter where i load it from. And when this happens a loud BEEP comes from it. Every time!!! I hate it i hate it, i hate it.
