Rated 5 out of 5 by johncruet48 from It's a Worthy Replacement for My DesignJet 111. I was NOT happy with HP's decision to discontinue the HP 11 and HP 82 cartridges, thereby rendering my HP DesignJet 111 as useless. That printer served me very well for 12 years, requiring only a replacement of print heads 4 yers ago. It was relatively fast for an entry level wide format printer. That being said, its replacement, the DesignJet T230, is now online. I have it hooked up to the USB connection. Communication is fast. Print quality, under "speed" is excellent and crisp. Print speed is acceptable and twice as fast as the 111 winter printing a D size sheet. Page setup with the Mac is also simple- I found it did a great job setting up an "Arch D" sheet. Only gripe is that HP did not have a recycling program for the DesignJet 111. Also I had to use a local source for that. Overall I like the T230 and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaZ5637 from Love being able to make 24" x 24" prints I love how easy it is to use, I just wish it was easier to buy the type of paper I need. I ordered some transparent film thinking I could use it as a giant sticker for decal but found out that I just spent around $100 for plastic that I have no use for. Also wished that it could print larger than 36" in length.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Truly disappointed from Defective product and useless customer service I have not been able to get the printer to work!! It indicates a paper jam but there isn’t a jam!! Your customer service is useless. Can’t get anyone to answer the phone. Online assistance is useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Mapguy from Great Plotter for the Money Very good packaging; arrived to residential address via Fedex Freight. Easy to unpack and set up. I use manually assigned IP addresses to all my printers and it was easy to configure using the small touch screen interface on the device. Only printed a few times so far, but as of now the quality is excellent and faster than the old DesignJet 500 it replaced. Also very quiet operation as well. For the money seems like a great plotter so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Printer preforms well, delivery not as paid for. I paid $32 for next business day delivery and received the printer on the second business day. Other than that the printer is excellent.

Can this printer be onverted into sublimation for doing T shirts?

Asked by: flcoolin
Thank you for your question! Sublimation is somewhat dangerous. You need specific inks that atomize at relatively low temperatures and then adhere to the desired object. OSHA would tell you that ventilation is critical. So HP only makes commercial-grade sublimation printers(HP Stitch). For home users, Waterslide paper is the best alternative. Print, seal with clear acrylic, and transfer with water (noting that post-transfer more coats of clear acrylic aren&rsquo;t a bad idea for many applications) and you get basically identical results with less possible toxic exposure events. With Waterslide, or Iron-On, nearly every printer will work, just make sure you have the right paper for your printer type. This HP DesignJet will be compatible with most Waterslide or Iron-On decal paper.
