Summary: replaced this was using a k8600 wide-format and it is a lot lighter and flimsier than the 8600 but seems to work fine so far. For the money its definitely a good deal and just have to see how long it lasts. But....the size of the ink cartridges is so tiny to be pitiful, compared to say the HP 8100 which is a letter size printer they are even smaller! So if you are planning on any serious print runs hope you have a deep pocketbook.
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. Why didn't they leave an economical, previously wonderful, printer ALONE!!! Go back to your original design HP. You'll sell a lot more!!!
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: 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. They run out of ink so fast that it is a complete joke.
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.
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. Thank goodness the Windows software worked well enough to manage getting the printer to print. Hp is now not including this software call HP Solution Center with their new printers.
Summary: Printer seems OK so far. It prints much faster than my old printer. Print quality is average for a printer in this price range. I got what I expected. Sure takes it's time from power up to make a lot of whirr, buzz and clicking noises. (I think its part Solenoid Robot from Roger Ramjet :) ) A LOT of software gets installed with the driver and an update for Adobe PDF caused some conflicts and an endless loop of an HP application trying to reinstall and failing.
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. It almost is as if the printer doesn't know what to do with the paper once it gets to the edge. This is an extremely frustrating issue for me, the only way I can get the prints not to be ruined is to print them with borders.
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.: the process used by commercial printing plants), this printer is not capable of producing the lifelike continuous tones of a six-or-more color printer designed for printing photographs.
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. Since the cable is NOT included, I will have to drive 50 miles to buy the cable I need to hook it up! Absolutely ridiculous!!
