Rated 1 out of 5 by TheMapper from Poor quality equipment I have owned 2 HP plotters over the past 15 years. My last Designjet 800 was a workhorse, lasted for 10 years and croaked a few weeks ago. I needed a plotter fast, so my choice was the Designjet T520 because it "looked" like the plotter to replace my 800. Unfortunately, it had problems right out of the box. The printhead cartridge was fouled up and would not work. The plotter is not built the same as the old models, not as sturdy. It just seems cheap looking. Rolled paper can easily jam if not cut properly. The ink cartridges are only 29 ml (the old HP 800 was 69 ml) yet the cost of the HP T520 cartridges are the same as the HP 800. The plotter skips over plots, as if they were lost in the memory. I had to constantly re-print missing plots. No way this plotter will last for 10 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by David06 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim20212 from T520 Large Format HP large formats are the best. The T520 was simple to setup, fast plotting, and very good quality for money spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanny1 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 GKAoffice 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
