RE: Plotters

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]



We’ve had an HP500 in our Utah office for about two years now and nary a problem. The only instance of a hiccup was a mysterious error code that appeared once the machine was out of warranty and mimicked a $1500 repair (replacement of an electronic board or something). Luckily it corrected on a reboot and all is well. My only suspicions were the sales advice to purchase a maintenance agreement “to prevent this very problem”.


I don’t know much about speed comparisons, but my only advice is to use the “slow plotter” shrug to beg off anxious clients.


If you need to see a hands-on, come on down to Draper.

We are thinking about replacing our current plotter.  Does any have comments they would like to share about either of these two models: HP 500 (42") or the Encad Cadjet T-200?  I have always used HP plotters, but the Encad appears to be faster.  Any comments would be helpful.
