Summary: HP's Officejet 7000 Wide Format inkjet printer brings A3+ printing to the networked office. Dedicated to marketing materials more than anything else, it won't produce the best quality photos but this printer is cost effective and reasonably fast in our print tests.
Pros: Ethernet connectivity, reasonable consumable costs, vibrant colour quality, accurate text in A4 documents, reasonable print speed
Cons: Bundled with introductory cartridges, haphazard A4 media handling, no dedicated scaling option, poor black levels in photo printing
Summary: The HP Officejet 7000 wide-format colour inkjet printer gives small businesses and offices the ability to print larger-size documents, such as tabloid-size publications or small posters, in-house and for a reasonable cost. This added capability justifies its higher price compared with a regular-size inkjet printer.
Excerpt: A3 printers have lots of uses in work environments, from promotional brochures to A4 documents with room for annotations in the margins. It's less likely that they'll be called upon to produce traditional glossy photo prints, though, except perhaps for surreptitious private use. This is the rationale behind HP's Officejet 7000, one of the least expensive A3 inkjets we've seen.
Excerpt: Printers that can cope with paper larger than A3+ are mainly confined to the world of graphics professionals, but HP and a couple of other makers are trying to stretch their office inkjet ranges to include A3+ printers, which can handle ordinary office documents as well as full-bleed photo prints, even at the larger size. HP's OfficeJet 7000 Wide Format is a new release into this market.
Excerpt: HP 7000 er ikke nogen decideret fotofotoprinter. Derfor er der fx forbindelse til kabelnetværk, hvor mellem tre og fem brugere kan koble sig på og dele printeren. I forhold til konkurrenterne har HP 7000 kun vandret papirindtag. Papiret lægges i foran på printeren og kommer ud samme sted. Dette betyder, at den ikke fylder i højden, hvorfor den også kan stå på en hylde. Til gengæld udsættes papiret for en lidt hårdhændet behandling, når det bukkes under udskrivning.
