        Comments about HP Designjet Z6200 42" Photo Printer:

        ALERT!!! The HP Website says the printer is compatible with all OS systems out of the box, IT'S NOT. If you purchase this printer, you will need to purchase additional Postscript Update ~$2,500 in order to print PS/PDF files from the MAC and via the web/network management panel.

        If you decide to get the PS upgrade kit, it will come with a flash drive PS driver update and an extended memory stick. The PS update is trivial and very easy to do. The memory upgrade is not. The memory expansion slot very poorly designed. Be very careful!!! and have an experience person install it for you.

        If the printer starts shredding the paper at the roll load time, set the altitude level to above 1,000 meters. The printer will need more vacuum in order to pull the paper. This helped us quite a bit!

        The printer shakes a bit when printing, but that's normal, just be sure to lock all the wheels in place.

        Otherwise the printer works great! It's fast and prints excellent quality posters. The paper management feature via the Web management panel is nice, allowing you to set paper and ink costs!
