Hewlett Packard support/help is so very difficult to get to. This is my 2nd PSC500. The first went back cos the printing had horizontal streaking. The 2nd one is the same.

HP Designjet 500 We purchased the HP Designjet 500 because of its capabilities as well as its price. We love the printer. A good printer/plotter for the money I am still amazed at how the machine can keep producing. It is simple and easy to use. Just plug it in.
