Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plotter We had a previous HP printer, a 130NR, 24". Very old but it did the job. Had a few quirks that we managed to work around. FInally decided on a 36" printer and came back to HP. Chose the T520 cause it was the cheapest 36" we could find. Could not be happier. Especially with the ink prices. Yeah if you do full size color it might get expensive, but, our needs are a few plans drawings a day. It excels at that. Probably 10 times the speed of the 130 and so much easier to load and unload the paper. Having an extra spindle means I can quickly change from 24 wide to 36 wide in less than a minute. No, this is not a production machine. I didn't want to pay the premium for a big machine (like I have in my engineering company). Recommend this one highly. Have only gone through about 10 rolls of peper so far but it has been perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 year later works great. Bought the T520 36 last year this time to save time and money over having drawings done by outside vendor. Well, I am pleased to say my printing costs have dropped dramatically. saved over over 2,000.00 my first year. ink and paper for entire year cost me a little over 800. I paid almost $4,000 last year outsourcing. After receiving recent updates, files get to printer faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "GREAT" Printer My husband has a Land Surveying business and uses AutoCAD. Therefore he has to plot his drawings. Before we got this new printer he had a HP DesignJet 220, it did the job for a very long time. So far this T520 is "GREAT". We would not use anything but a HP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine The entire process was exceptional. From website browsing to purchase, delivery and installation. HP makes it easy to keep on buying from them. The machine works as well as the one I got 10 years ago, but with all the advanced technology there is to offer. Color, B+W, paper and quick printing makes it a competitor all around. _LAT

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall satisfied Still testing the new product, and of course would like it to print like my old Plotter a designjet 430. So far, it doing what I need it to do, just tweeking and trying to find out how to print with out having to press the continue to print on the screen, because it detects something is wrong. Like I said Overall nice plotter, being an HP product I know it will last like my old plotter.
