The HP Designjet 650C is a large-format inkjet printer that can handle widths of up to 36 inches. Its bulky design means it will require a lot of space, but for users who need to print maps, blueprints, and other large projects, it is an affordable choice. Separate colors of HP 650C printer ink help to reduce waste.
Connection options are limited to parallel and serial ports, which might be a stumbling block for those whose computer only supports USB. The machine itself measures 47.2x54x28 inches and weighs 153.9 pounds, and comes on legs with casters for easily moving it around the workspace. It supports a single roll of media, and print at sizes up to 36.1x51 inches. Multiple media types are supported, such as plain, glossy, coated, and vellum paper, as well as imaging film, polyester film, and continuous forms. An output tray can catch large media as it comes out.
Print quality won't be as sharp as more modern devices. Printing in black and white creates a resolution of 600x600 dpi but the max resolution when using color Designjet 650C printer ink is only 300x300 dpi. The 4 MB of installed RAM might not be enough for larger projects, but it can be upgraded to a maximum of 68 MB if needed.
HP 650C ink cartridges come in separate colors of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, which keep waste to a minimum. The Designjet 650C ink cartridges can even be replaced while printing, to minimize downtime.
The 650C is a decent choice for basic wide-format inkjet printing, especially if it can be found at an affordable price, but users who need high-quality output might want to consider a model with higher resolutions. Low prices for HP 650C ink make it fairly economical to operate.
