HP Designjet T125 T130 Review
The HP DesignJet T125 and T130 are the latest in HP's most successful plotter range to date, replacing the Designjet T120 which enjoyed world wide sales higher than any previous A1 / A2 wide-format machine.
HP have made the decision to split this model in to 2 seperate plotters for the UK/EU market area based on the activity of existing users of T120, in the US there is a third model the HP Designjet T100 (not available in UK/EU)
The HP DesignJet T125 which is our preference is the lower cost of the 2 models and in our opinion delivers much better value for money with an approximate RRP saving of around 20%, inks and consumables are all identical so there is no uplift on print cost.
Firstly, it should be noted that the T100 series is aimed at small construction companies right the way through the supply chain from Design Teams to Sub-Contractors and Trades who require quick A1 / A2 prints of plans and even renders. T100 is also ideal for manufacturing environments where drawings are required for shop floor or design purposes.
Volume - The average volume of machines deployed in working environments of the discontinued Designjet T120 is 38.5 meter per month so approx 45 A1 plots per month, however plot-IT have customers buying up to 6 rolls of plot paper (50 meter) per month which these machines can cope with (355 A1 Per month) they are designed for small working groups but can cope with bigger volumes when required, typically we would suggest anyone who are outsourcing or currently printing between 10-100 A1 / A2 per month then the T125 & T130 are good choices.
Differences - The most significant difference is as stated the price, expect to pay 20% less for an HP Designjet T125, this brings the average price down from the old T120 model and is possible by the removal of some under utilised functions.
The key difference is that T125 firstly is fractionally slower, in fast mode (draft plots) it operates at a print speed of up to 45 seconds per A1 per hour compared to up to 35 seconds A1 on the T130.
DRIVERS - MAC OS NOTICE - Driverless printing for MACS. HP Click software allows for printing from MAC without the need of a driver, check TAB 3 for more information.Reccomendation - As Stated our preference is the lower priced HP Designjet T125, it's ideal for easy desktop printing without some of the additional cost driven frills which are unlikely to be used, speed wise you really won't notice a difference.Alternative - As an alternative we would suggest going straight to an HP Designjet T830 24" MFP which offers Copy and Scanning. If you need faster print only, not scanning or copying then we suggest going straight to the T530 24" and skipping the T130, this gives you quicker processing, more memory and a stand, our next choice would be the Designjet T730 which is actually A0 size but offers quick A1 and benefits from larger ink cartrdiges.
