Summary: I am at Amazon looking for a new printer. This one just failed mid-project. Paper feeds at an angle and print head tears it. It was a good printer while it lasted though -- a year for a couple hundred $ is not so bad.
Summary: Please be aware, before buying this printer, that it uses traditional four-color (cyan, magenta, yellow, black (CMYK)) technology. While four-color printing is the standard for offset color printing (i.e.
Summary: While I don't mind paying for ink, especially when I can refill myself, I really found this printer to be lacking in that regard. It comes with three tiny color cartridges and one tiny black cartridge. The black one can be exchanges for one three times the size, but not so the other ones.
Summary: This printer does an impressive job printing design-work, and artwork whether it was originally vector or pixel based. The issue I have with this printer is that whenever I try to print 11 x 17 border-less prints, it pushes the paper out at an angle.
Summary: Since it's not set up yet, I can't comment on the print quality, speed or anything else since it did not come with a printer cable! I live 50 miles from the nearest city, which is why I ordered this online.
Summary: The Printer itself is wonderful, the software on the other hand is terrible! It took me 4 and half hours finally getting to a HP Case manager to be told that the software included with the printer has real problems. In the end they said don't load it.
GO BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL DESIGN OF THE HP WIDE FORMAT PRINTER. YOU HAVE CHEAPENED IT DOWN TOO MUCH!!!

Summary: The newest addition of the 7000 Wide Format Printer is O.K., but in my estimation and I have had four (4) previous HP Officejet Wide Format Printers, THIS NOT BUILT AS WELL AS THE OLDER MODELS THEY HAD. They have cheapened them down in some way, the paper tends to get hung up, etc.
Not bad, but the tray feels cheap along with other thin plastic parts.

Summary: Also the ink ran out after about 20 pages. The replacement black only was 440. HP is an annoying company to deal with, but the printer does what I need, for now. It is slow however and the tray is floppy and weak. My other HP has cheap plastic parts also that you need to be very careful with.
