    Thank’s guys, as I’m being forced into buying another printer due to HP withdrawing support for the 26500 even though it’s in perfect working order and would of lasted for years, I don’t quite have the full asking price for a new one. So I was hoping to find an ex-demo or nearly new HP365, Yes I hear you all saying why go back to HP? Well, I love latex, I love how easy it is and how quick it is so I have no choice.
    If they do this to me again it will be another story though. 👿

    Hi Peter,
    Give Papergraphics a try too. I got my 365 from them in January & very impressed with their communication & service & they beat Granthams & everywhere else I tried on price. They organised shipping to Republic of Ireland & flew an engineer over to install & get me up & running all cheaper than anywhere else! :praiseyou:

    Have to say I’m impressed with the 365 over the 26500 too. I only realised how worn & old the 26500 was when I started using the 365. It definitely uses less ink & electric too & the scratch resistance is way better meaning you really don’t have to laminate everything. The only thing so far I was a little disappointed in was I had the impression it ran cooler but being sat in front of it when it’s printing a long run on a warm day is like being in Greece on a breezy summer day 😆 😆

    You do also tend to need to feed the media a little way through the curing zone before you start printing otherwise it can catch the top with the leading edge & either smear the ink before it starts drying or pucker up on the platen & end up with a head crash. A bit of a pita but once you’re in a routine of doing it it’s no problem really.

    I also had an email from HP about 2 days ago about current new offers of 3k trade in & 2k discounts so it would be a good time to be looking.
