I have two, the HP430 and HP500.  The 430 has never let me down.  The 500 also works well, but I'd get the model with black ink only next time.  I use only black and I can't figure out how to get the color inks from slowly leaking (perhaps an automatic process to prevent clogging of the lines).  Once any color runs out you have to install a re-fill or the plotter refuses to run.

I am a 1-man shop and up to now all I have needed is an 11x17 laster print
for my drawings. However, for some upcoming work, I will need to provide
24x36 drawings.

I'm considering the HP 110plus, mainly because of the price. I don't intend
to use it a lot and I don't need a lot of fancy features. I'd appreciate
feedback (on the list or privately if you prefer) about this plotter or
others that you may recommend.
