About HP Z5200

The HP Designjet Z5200 PostScript 44" Printer is designed to maximize your printing resources and make in-house printing more affordable. The large ink tanks cut down the cost per page and its automatic calibration saves resources by calibrating without printing a calibration sheet. The HP Vivera ink produces high-quality prints in both grayscale and color and is engineered to resist smudging, fading and water damage.

The printer has its own built-in 160GB hard disk which means none of the computer's RAM is used for printing, letting you continue your work while printing large files. Having the built-in hard disk also means you can store commonly printed files in the printer for easy anytime access from anywhere on your local network. The printer comes with a browser-based interface that lets anyone connected to the network monitor the printer's progress. Included with the printer is HP's Instant Printing Pro, letting you add multiple files to the print queue without having to open each one. Once the files are in the queue you can dictate to the printer when the files should be printed. Because the printer constantly monitors resources, it's able to calculate whether or not it has enough supplies left for the next job, saving you time and resources.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  is it good for small office?
GARY R  Maybe, if you have a separate desk or table for it. Or perhaps if you have an L-shaped desk because a regular size desk with your computer along with this printer would be crowded.
Shawn F  Does this plotter come with the stand? If not - we are replacing our HP 5500, will that stand fit this model?
NORMAN K  Yes a stand is included. The printer comes on a pallet and is well packed. It took me about 30 minutes to put together with very detailed instructions. You'll need a few people to lift it.
