we need more enthusiasm here! :)

i'll critique my own pick here.

the one good thing is the guy sounds like

he would deliver for gas money.

not good is the price and that it came from office environment.

i will wait for mint low mileage one! :)

Have A Nice Day!

Make sure that there are drivers available for your operating system for any older plotter that you buy. I got a 36" HP430 inkjet plotter a few years ago dirt cheap from Craigslist. I have to run it off of an XP machine because there are no drivers available for any operating system newer than that.

that is a little speed bump on my

highway to 'simple printing of full scale templates'.

one thing that motivated me to look into this

was local blueprint place giving me grief

about printing straight from our .TCW files.

Have A Nice Day!

is the win7 driver situation better for

HP 750C inkjet plotters?

i am kind of set on pen plotter though.

maybe get the inkjet as a stopgap solution

to take the pressure off.

Have A Nice Day!
