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.
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.
Summary: The printer has very good quality. I like the fact that the software integrates well with the hP solution center so you can go to one place to view things such as ink and cleaning of print heads (I also have an officejet Pro 8000).
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.
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.
