I purchased this printer to replace an old Designjet that I have had for almost ten years. This new printer puts out EXTREMELY high quality prints. Photographs look great, the colors are accurate and the speed is reasonable.

I'm a fine artist who prints my own work and the work of other artists for display in galleries and museums. I also teach digital printing.
I purchased the z3200 44" printer as an upgrade from the z3100 24". Both have been excellent machines. I've used the z3200 on a large variety of photo, fine art and canvas materials. The in-printer profiling is a major innovation and means that I have exactly the right profile for my particular batch of paper and ink. It means I can use any paper I want whether on-line profiles are available or not. I like the gloss enhancer and feel it is the optimum solution for generating a uniform glossy finish.
What HP says about being able to print a true neutral b&w image from an RGB file is indeed true and the results are superb. This is icing on the cake in addition to the built in B&W mode. The depth of the blacks on matte papers and canvas is a revelation. Overall the clarity and color strength of the images from the z33200 is top notch. As a visual artist, I appreciate that HP's pigments continue the lead the pack in terms of archival qualities.
Compared to the some of the competition, I love the straight through paper path. This means I can leave paper sitting in the printer and it won't have a kink in it when it comes out. Also there is no ink wastage in switching from photo-black to matte-black ink. This is automatic - I just load the paper, select the right paper type on the front panel and go.
I run this printer as an ethernet device and it is some distance from the computer I use for printing. This isn't a problem. The z3200 is a stable, professional machine and doesn't need baby-sitting. I only need to go to it to change paper rolls or ink cartridges.
Improvements? I can only think of a couple of very minor things that I'd change. I'd appreciate it if the automatic cutter cut canvas and if I could supply a roll length and roll number to the printer driver and have it keep track of how much is left on that roll.
In summary this is a printer that doesn't disappoint in any regard. I don't feel z3200 limits me in any way. It truly gives wings to my work and my biggest challenge is creating files of high enough quality to fully take advantage of its strengths.

I would rate my tech and photography skills as amateur - plus. This was a significant purchase for me and I spent some time researching and comparing. The printer, all the features and software that comes with it is incredible. It truly lives up to any of the claims. I've had my HPZ3200-44" for about a year, it has been a very good year! My architectural work, banners and photography prints have just blown people away. The ability to create profiles for various different papers such as canvas, water colour paper and get results that are spot on are amazing. Keep up the good work HP!
