For cost and price comparisons we will have to wait until the Z printer becomes better known. HP is also advanced in web-based access to its printers.

FLAAR looks at the new HP Designjet Z Photo Printer Series.

In those earlier years we featured primarily the HP models because that is what we had years of experience with due to having them in-house and hence available to learn how effective these Designjet printers were in those days. This ColorSpan printer is easy to use and far more versatile than any water-based or any eco-solvent printer.

Actually there are csnon The HP and were real work-horses. But z6010 projects were phased out and in the intervening years we have noticed that more and more printshops were asking us about where they could obtain reliable after-market replacement inks.

But HP is ahead in color management. One way to save money during the current economic climate is to skip OEM ink and use a good third-party after-market replacement ink. HP naturally hopes to sell as many of the Z So we could write about them first-hand.


If a store sells only one brand or the other, they will understandably push the brand they sell. Will this be the HP Designjet Z photo series? So, as is typical of the FLAAR Reports, we made the effort to find an ink company which has enough experience with ink chemistry to have already brewed a good replacement ink.

So FLAAR inspected this company in Singapore in May and then inspected several printshops that were using this ink on a daily basis. This means remote access to HP Designjet software firmware. ColorSpan ads specifically mention those HP printers as the kind of printshop that their ColorSpan uv series is appropriate for. The lack of speed of the HP Z will be an issue in comparing this with the faster Canon iPF, so HP will work hard at making this up with other features, namely color management.

But times have changed: The HP and were essentially identical, so we treat them as one model.

So we can now report that Sam-Ink is a reliable company and that end-users appreciate their low price and good quality after-market inks for the HP Z NET in the link to UV printers at the right. The first question was, what is the color version going to be like?


This is already being discretely shown and is already widely talked about. X6100 has the initial advantage because their iPF came out first. Plus the Canon iPF offers 12 ink channels the Z only 8. In previous years when we had full-time projects evaluating HP printers we used only original HP inks.

Two of us were at the Zund printer world headquarters, demo rooms, and z610 in Switzerland three weeks ago. We still use this model daily. Our experience and access to these comes from one week at the Mutoh Europe factory in Belgium.

The advantage of a place that offers both Epson, HP, and Epson is that they can provide some tips on the differences.
