Perfect for My Small Office
on October 31, 2010
I recently purchased an HP DesignJet 111 for my small, residential-based office. After getting through some initial frustrations setting up and getting the printer on-line, I have it working, and I'm very glad I made this small investment. Print quality has been equal to much more expensive printers. A D sheet takes all of 90 seconds to print in high quality on plain paper. That kind of speed, which I was used to on my much larger Canon printer, works for me, and is a pleasant surprise on such a low-cost printer. The software takes up much space in my computer but works quite well with my Apple setup. Print setup is a snap.
This time, Amazon delivered on its shipping commitment. I ordered the printer on Wednesday afternoon, and I received it on Friday, in the middle of the work day.
There are a few frustrations, however. The front take-up tray is loose and I'm still trying to figure out how to properly re-insert it. The manual is not clear regarding this. Also, the printer shipped with power cords suitable for European power, with the wrong prongs. I reverted to using a power cord I own which fits this printer perfectly, but was used for a previous printer with similar power requirements. I'll be in touch with HP Support for resolution of these problems.
Still I have already made fine quality black-and-white and color prints. Overall, I'd recommend this printer.
