There is an excellent review in the March 2003 issue of CADence that compares the two plotters you are considering. While I have used the Encad plotter, I would say it comes down to what type of plotting/printing you anticipate using for the life of the plotter.
We have used the HP Designjet 500 for almost 2 years now and our review is mixed. 99% of our plotted dwgs are black "line" dwgs with grayscale hatching. Quite frankly, we are a little disappointed in the speed that it takes to complete a plot on final settings with the HP. However, if you plan on plotting in color, I would give the HP serious thought.
Based on the article in CADence, the Encad produces slightly less quality "line" drawings than the HP. However, its possible to use 4 black cartridges total in place of the color ones to produce very fast black plots. I really wish this option was available on the HP 500.
