Location: Florida
Started out good
Date:February 13, 2013
"I have owned the 130nr for 3 years. During that time I have had to have all the tubes replaced 2 times. In particular the yellow ink delivery system is flawed. After having the unit serviced the second time with the same result I have determined that I could have purchased another brand of printer with the same size format for the cost of repairing my 130."

Great all around printer
Date:July 14, 2010
"The DesignJet 130nr is an all around awesome printer. I love how it has the tray for sheets of paper, and a roll, and a rear manual feed, and a front manual feed. That alone makes it so versatile because i can use it to print out google maps, and then use it to print a high quality poster. The inks are reasonably priced and so are the heads. This is really a great printer for the money. It is so easy to use and prints amazing.
I recommend using this printer through acrobat or Photoshop. Avoid printing in InDesign on a Mac. If you're printing on a PC you can print from any program.. just make sure that you select the correct color profile in the application you're printing in.. and in the print dialog box choose "application managed colors"
HP Papers DO print best on these. My favorite is the HP Proofing paper :)"

Still the value leader in fine art printers
Date:April 1, 2010
"I've used a DesignJet 130 for years with roll paper and it continues to produce excellent large format fine art prints at a very affordable price. I've just bought another one."

Excellent value for price
Date:January 28, 2010
"I've used a DJ130 for over five years with various upgrades and repairs. The roll feed problem mentioned in the September 2009 review goes away when then DJ130 is used with its matching HP stand and print bin.
This is an excellent value for the money and we have bought several for local schools. Supply costs are pretty reasonable compared to Epson, especially when buying top end photo paper like HP Premium Plus Photo Satin.
I've done many fine art prints for juried shows and the output can be very good. It is important to achieving best quality, especially in dark and near-grey tones ,to do a regular monitor and printer profile using a ColorMunki or comparable device and also to optimize that printer profile from time to time."

Great Deal
Date:October 25, 2009
"I use this printer for customer posters and large pictures. When I first got it I thought it was a pain to use but over time I wouldn't trade it for anything. Most of the time I use it for 16 x 20 prints and use it all the time for portraits. When I use medium gloss paper from River paper the prints are fantastic. I have both an Epson 3800 and a 9 color printer from HP and the prints are very close. The detail is very good even though the DPI is lower then the rest. This printer would still be a deal for twice the price and cost per print is very low. The next time I would get the roll feeder because if you don't start with a square edge it WILL NOT FEED every time."

good medium format printer
Date:September 3, 2009
"We have had the deskjet 130 in service for approximately 3 years and it is great for presentation graphics of 24" or less in width. The vivid colors and crisp resolution of the output makes it a great tool for presentation material to clients. It is relatively quick, and except for its tendency to be somewhat difficult to load the roll type material, it is a good desktop printer."
