Works best with Gimp-Print, here it also does its maximum resolution of 600 dpi.

Old user comments:

Choose the driver for the HP DesignJet 650C

Choose "Normal color printing with color cartridge" option in the printtools 'setup' option for the driver.

The driver only has a 300x300dpi resolution, though the plotter can do up to 600x600. Don't know if/how to make it work at a higher resolution, or if it doesn't actually do 600dpi, in spite of what the driver says.

Also, the maximum paper size listed in the printtool is A3, although this plotter can do up to A1.

This plotter understands the HPGL, HPGL/2 and PJL language.

Consumables/Refills: black ink cartridge -- approx. US$30
