I am going to be purchasing a new plotter and want to focus on 12x18 and 18x24 size sheets in B&W and color. I am therefor figuring that a tabletop with 18" wide capability is the best. anyone have suggestions on a specific plotter that has been successful in their practice in this format. thanks so much

are you talking A1? if so the HPDesignJet 130 is the one for you. it is fast, colour and will work! HP works with everything and got real good driver. IMHO...

DesignJet 130 will work, but it is more graphics oriented. DesignJet 100+ or 110+ is a more CAD-oriented plotter. We have 100+. It can sheet feed 18x24 and it works well. Very similar to the full size DesignJet 500 series. Of course, the 100+ seems to plot faster because it's plotting smaller drawings. I believe 110+ is the current model. It offers roll feed as well (and maybe internal network card.)

The designjet 120NR is discontinued and has deals now that are really hard to beat. (under $700 for the model with the roll-feed and network interface - MSRP is $1800) http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=721930/search=designjet+120 (careful, some of these vendors are less than reputable....I got mine at Online Micro and had no problems) Like the 130, this printer is desgined more for the graphic artist than the architect, but works just great for me. I just got done printing 15 sheets of 24" x 60" boards for my final studio crit on glossy paper and it cost me less than it would have to print 2 sheets at school.
