    Ink levels are displayed on the control screen and on your desktop.

    T120 Stand



    Extremely lightweight at under 30 kilos (when roll loaded) the T120 can easily be sat on a suitable shelf or desk, alternatively you can order the optional stand and print catcher if desired. NB The stand is included with the T520 but is purchasable with a T120.




    Similar in appearance to the HP T520 - Key differences with T520 -  1200dpi output (higher 2400dpi on HP T520) and quick output at up to 40 A1 prints per hour (T520 - 70 A1 per hour), 256MB memory (not Upgradeable, T520 is 1GB) no HP/GL (Standard on T520). The T520 ships with the stand in the box and has the clear roll cover shown above, so some compelling reasons to look at this as an alternative option.

    HP Designjet T120 Review, NEWS & Opinion from plot-IT

    The HP Designjet T120 is probably one of the most succesful product launches from the HP wide-format team.

    The T120 essentially brought a new benchmark to entry level in house CAD plotting, offering a functional and affordable solution rich in features.

    Sitting squarely as an entry level product this A1 / A2 plotter is ideal for very small work groups of 1-3 users or where wide-format printing needs are occasional. The compact design allows it to sit on a users desk or even on a sturdy wall shelf.

    Wi-Fi is standard, at launch we were concerned that the Wi-Fi would struggle with bigger CAD files, this for the most part has been unfounded unless your application deals with very big files then you should be mindful that you are better off with a cable connection and you should also consider the memory of the T120 which can not be upgraded. When it comes to low volume use but where big files are required then the T520 should be considered which comes with 1GB memory rather than the 256Mb supplied with the T120.

    In addition to offering more memory the T520 also ships with the stand, for the T120  this is purchasable seperately and with an RRP of around £150 + VAT the price difference between the two models is narrowed considerably.

    On many forums and reviews you will see the T120 is capable of providing "Stunning Graphics" this is true, it really does but bare in mind it has very small ink cartridges and if you intend to print full colour graphics then the T120 is not the right choice for you, but it's ideal for Architectural or engineering line drawings with some solid fills and it's ok if you want the odd full render.

    If your looking for an A1 plotter for a bigger work team, where you are using memory hungry applications or where you want to print PDF's without opening them before printing (IE Batch Printing multiple PDF's in one go) then the T790PS should be your choice, this unit features six colours (CMY, Matte Black, Pigment Black and Grey) alongw ith a longer roll length of 91 meters and the inks are much better value for money as well as being more efficent - especially for lots of monochrome work.
