Summary: Like one of the previous reviewers, all I wanted was a low cost 11x17 color printer that was capable of printing AutoCAD and *.PDF drawings. If that is what you want then this printer gets 5 stars. I don't have a lot of sympathy with the graphic artists who complain about the quality of the large print image. Gads what do you expect for under $130? HP do fantastic wide format color printers, I use one at work - it cost $1,360. You get what you pay for.
Summary: I purchased the first printer this past spring to replace an HP CP1700 that we had for 8-9 years. We design die cast tooling and the ledger size works great for us. This first one has been doing very well. I recently purchased a second one to use directly in the quoting dept and it is also doing a fine job. They both print quickly and I believe they are more efficient on ink than the older printers.
Summary: I bought this to handle the occasional wide format (11x17) CAD printing job as well as day-to-day letter size color printing. It replaced an older HP inkjet and an elderly HP wide format that lived out it's life span and died. Now I have one instead of two, reducing desk space. So far it seems to work well. No issues, print quality looks good, considering the price. One funny quirk: after it finishes printing it goes thru a round of clunking before it shuts down.
Summary: My boss needed a printer for the occasional drawing that needed to be bigger than letter size, but didn't require a full scale plotter drawing. This printer fills the bill. It is cheap, prints on large format paper and is network capable. The price of ink would kill you if you used it often, but it is great for a dozen or so prints a month. Some printers, even expensive ones, have a hard time feeding large format paper without jamming but this one has been great so far.
Excerpt: [Note--I have the Officejet 7410 All-in-One model] We got this printer about 5 or 6 years ago, and it still works well. The color quality is great for everything short of photos, basically. For school projects, flyers, and other color printing needs, it does the job well. The only problem...
Summary: The HP Officejet 7000 wide format printer is one of the very few printers that will print tabloid size that I use quite often. I've used HP wide printers for many years, but they are not longer available or supported. Installing the printer software was a nightmare. The installation CD disk software would not install without an error. I tried and complied with the HP error solutions without any results.
Summary: I can tell how there can be better out there for the "style" of printer, but I feel like this was a pretty good bang for the buck. You also have to consider the last printer my wife and I had was nearly 7 years old, and since moving to Windows 7 we couldn't update the printer driver anymore. So we were living life used to without having a printer at all. So maybe we're just thrilled to have a printer again. But I am impressed with the print speed.
Summary: I have had no issues with this printer so far. I use it mainly for 11" x 17" architectural/engineering drawings that are black and white. The results are faster and better than my original, problem prone, HP 9800 wide format printer. Just hope this one lasts longer.
