So I have been tasked with finding options to replace my GIS department's recently deceased HP Designjet 815mfp (all-in-one scanner/plotter/touch screen). It was used mostly to scan/print plats, and some older maps from archives too.
We would like similar capabilities with a new solution; fast scan/printing, supports up to 42" media, easy to use. Affordable consumables like ink/printheads would be nice(one can dream). I have been doing research, but there is a bewildering amount of companies and products and minimal reviews. Budget under $20,000 US.
Are you fellow GIS pros still using HP? They are so expensive, anyone using other companies, Canon, Epson, Contex? Would like to hear you recent purchases and experiences Thanks!
