Customer ratings and reviews for HP Designjet T520 24-in ePrinter

Rated 5 out of 5 by HP T520 Plotter is Excellent Excellent CAD printer for a small business. Easy to setup. Wireless printing works great. I highly recommend this printer! March 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by ink cartridge small Print quality is good, easy to setup, I like that we can print single sheets easly. I wished the ink cartridge held more ink, the cost of ink is getting to be prohibitive compared to other manufactrers May 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Printing is very sharp, great features Puchasing this printer was a walk in the park from the initial call to the sales department to the delivery. This is the second large format printer we have bought directly through HP and I would not hesitate to do it again. The Customer Service and Sales department are the most helpful and pleasant people to deal with. February 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really excited to have this printer! I am an artist and I do large prints of my oil paintings. This printer does an awesome job and has accurate color using Photoshop. It took me a little while to figure out how to load a large single sheet of paper, but once i figured it out it was a breeze. I love the easy to use front panel touch screen...everything can be done from there. The wi-fi is wonderful...my printer is in another room and I simply hit print on my computer and in no time I have a beautiful print. I would definitely recommend this printer. January 10, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for Everyone Although the printer does produce colorful maps and is much quicker than the printer it replaced, it does not work with older software. It is intended to be used strictly as a network printer and is not easily set up to a stand-alone system. Also, it is extremely difficult to get the printer to properly print in the landscape mode. It often fails to recognize what size paper is loaded , so it frequently tries to print on the wrong size paper. December 27, 2012
