The Designjet Z5200 PostScript Printer from HP is designed to maximize your printing resources and make in-house printing more affordable. The large ink tanks cut down the cost per page and its automatic calibration saves resources by calibrating without printing a calibration sheet. The HP Vivera ink produces high-quality prints in both grayscale and color and is engineered to resist smudging, fading, and water damage.

The printer has its own built-in 160 GB hard disk which means none of the computer's RAM is used for printing, letting you continue your work while printing large files. Having the built-in hard disk also means you can store commonly printed files in the printer for easy anytime access from anywhere on your local network. The printer comes with a browser-based interface that lets anyone connected to the network monitor the printer's progress. Included with the printer is HP's Instant Printing Pro, letting you add multiple files to the print queue without having to open each one. Once the files are in the queue you can dictate to the printer when the files should be printed. Because the printer constantly monitors resources, it's able to calculate whether or not it has enough supplies left for the next job, saving you time and resources.

Easy And Intuitive

With this printer you save half the steps needed to get a print so it's easier, and you're more productive. Take advantage of a printer that is so easy and intuitive, you'll wonder why you waited to bring large-format printing in house.
Eliminate and automate many of the steps involved with traditional large-format printing. HP Instant Printing Pro streamlines the printing process from beginning to end with fast, easy file preparation and automatic nesting, preview, orientation, and crop marks.
Achieve your desired colors quickly while minimizing unnecessary and expensive trial-and-error printing. This printer's embedded spectrophotometer enables automatic calibration and profiling for greater color accuracy and consistency.

Speed up the printing process by eliminating some of the time-consuming steps along the way. The HP Designjet Z5200 PostScript Printer lets you submit many files at a time, directly to the printer, without having to wait to open an application.

      Comments about HP Designjet Z5200 PostScript 44" Printer:

      Bought a large format printer shipped from NY to Montana. Product works great. I use it for banner and poster printing, replacing a HP 5500ps. Wish i would have done it sooner as the Z5200 provides my copy shop the tool i need.

      Comments about HP Designjet Z5200 PostScript 44" Printer:

      We use the HP Designjet Z5200 printer to produce posters and gallery wrapped canvas prints. The printer prints beatiful in black and white and in color. It's fast and easy to use. We switch from canvas and photo paper rolls to sheets routinely with ease. I like that the print heads are replaceable and relatively inexpensive.
