The HP DesignJet 70 is a color ink cartridge
printer with a focus on providing professional quality output in a variety of sizes and media types. Despite this, it still maintains a small footprint and affordable price that will appeal to any small or medium office, and printer ink is very affordable as well, thanks to the low cost of HP 70 ink.
The most impressive feature of the DesignJet 70 may be its support for so many media sizes. It can print on media as small as 3x5.6 inches all the way up to wide-format 18x64 inch media, running the gamut of what is possible for such a compact machine. In fact, with an optional roll feed, it is even possible to make prints up to 150 inches in length. It also supports a wide variety of media types, including transparencies, glossy, proofing and photo paper, and it can even print on heavyweight and coated media. This makes it a versatile machine that can handle almost any project you can throw at it.
The machine measures 8.7 inches by 35 inches by 38.6 inches and weighs around 40 pounds with the HP ink cartridges
installed, so it does take up a larger footprint than a typical inkjet unit, but it is compact enough for most spaces. Its 1200 dpi resolution produces sharp image quality.
Printer ink is very affordable, and HP 70 ink cartridges are easy to find both in stores and online. The large capacity of DesignJet 70 ink cartridges gives a low cost per page that saves money, and third-party compatible DesignJet 70 ink is also available for even lower prices than the OEM versions.
For in-house graphics departments or any other small office that needs professional results and versatility in their printer, the HP DesignJet 70 might be a good fit. Its fast speeds and affordable price combine with inexpensive HP 70 ink costs to make it a great value for small budgets.
