The HP DesignJet 700 is a monochrome inkjet that is particularly geared toward buyers who need wide format support for printing large designs, but don't want the extra cost and hassle of a color model. It can produce a D/A1-size print in around 2 to 4 minutes, depending on the quality settings, and the 600 dpi printing engine provides sharp prints with excellent detail. Printer ink costs are low, thanks to the affordability of HP 700 ink.
Unlike earlier wide-format models, the 700 can handle many of the more mundane tasks for the user automatically. It supports running in roll-feed mode and even handles cutting automatically. The device performs an automatic cartridge alignment, ensuring that prints stay in sync throughout the sheet. Large media formats are well-supported, including ANSI formats, architectural media, and ISO media formats.
The inkjet has an indicator right on the front panel to inform users when printer ink is running low. DesignJet 700 ink cartridges have a page yield of around 830 pages. The low cost of HP 700 ink cartridges makes them very economical, but using compatible DesignJet 700 ink over the expensive OEM options is an even better value.
Compared to other wide-format models in its class, the 700 has the advantage and the disadvantage of being monochrome-only. This saves on the cost of HP 700 ink, but it also limits flexibility somewhat, as users might have a need for color printing at some point in the future.
Overall, the HP 700 is a very fast and reliable machine for large formats, and its flexible paper-handling makes it fairly versatile. Output quality is very sharp, and the included software is easy to use. Buyers will have to decide if the savings of a monochrome device is worth less flexibility in printing options.
