We researched and toiled over which printer to buy for printing large 24" drawings. I called HP and their tech helped me decide this was the best buy. On the front end it seemed like a lot more than what I was going to spend on other models but after adding up all the things that "are in the box" with this one. I was convinced this was not only a good buy, but the smart buy. It's the latest generation and you can tell. We were up and printing on a network within an hour. Very happy with our decision to buy this printer.
