Rated 2 out of 5 by SDFCEM from Nice Unit - but........ Nice features, good price. I through an error code right out of the box. HP has opted sending a tech to fix versus sending a new printer. The Tech has been out 3 times now, almost drained all of our toner printing test pages, and we have yet to print for ourselves. The pages the Tech prints are beautiful!! Just can't wait to get the issues resolved. I wish HP would have just sent a new unit - or at least toner cartridges since they are expensive!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rick from Maryland from Print quality is only fair I was hoping for better quality With 6 ink cartridges I expected much better quality from the Z6 than my 17 year old HP500. This printer is not worth the extra money it costs over basic large format printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Henry Dabbs from HP DesignJet Z6 It replaced the HP Designjet T610 that we used for 12 years printing architectural drawings. Right out of the shipping box and after the initial setup we printed several sets of drawings. I am very impressed with the new advanced features as shown on the keypad. I know for certain my next printer or plotter will be a HP!
