The printer itself is a fine printer. The 130 is not Network Ready (I assume that is what nr stands for), but we had the 130nr model before, and after many years of service, it finally gave out on us. I was able to swap out the parts that made it an 130nr (the ethernet card and roller assembly), and now we have essentially a brand new 130nr again.
I can tell from some of the reviews that some people are attempting to load manually from the back...If you don't have the automatic roll feeder you're MUCH better off loading all paper from the FRONT...With this printer and my old HP 100 wide format I probably have around 5% that kickback...Maybe half of those are non square edges and the rest user error while feeding...Someone stated they tried 8 times with no luck is outright laughable..
Also consider buying a CIS (continuous ink supply) to majorly decrease the ink cost...
So far the auto color match profiling works great and it's value can't be over emphasized...Especially is one uses multiple papers or canvas...
For the money there isn't a better 24" wide format printer out there...No doubt there is a slight learning curve and reading the manual completely is a must...It's obvious from some of the reviews that a few haven't read it...
I owned a HP 100 wide format before this one...The...
O.K. so compared to other plotters/ printers that I've looked at, worked with, or owned, this is the one that i would recommend. On a budget compared to pricier ones go buy it because it just works.
We plot drawings, banners, from letter size sheet to wide formats to resting a rool behinh it and just plot a 24" by 72 banner. ALL-in-all it just as i said USEful as opposed to USEless
Pro -If you only need a print to go (large format that is)... get this , not bad DPI either Con -THE PAPER FRONT LOAD is ANNNNNOOOOOYING!!!
