I traded my HP Designjet 500 in on the Z2100 24" Designjet and am pleased beyond expectations. The colors are pure and vibrant. The printing is fast and complete. Changing and installing new canvas rolls is quick and simple. For my purpose which is canvas art, the machine is perfect. Although the printer is large and bulky, its dependability overshadows any size drawback. I highly recommend the Z2199 for superior performance.
The HP Designjet Z2100 Photo Printer supports paper thickness between 0.1 and 0.8 mm, with cut sheet and roll feed options. Impressive results will be the norm with this large-format HP Designjet that can print up to 44 inches wide.
