PMA 2008: Big Price Cuts for Big HP Printers


Yes, even though PMA ended on Saturday, we’re still digging news out of the show. Here’s a good one for any photographer considering buying one of HP’s well-reviewed — including in this publication — wide-format Z-Series printers which are seeing some significant price cuts. Usually this means a new model is on the way, but after meeting with HP at the show, this doesn’t seem to be the case. The way it was explained to us, the lower prices are being offered as an alternative to the previous mail-in rebate program which many people find annoying. (Including us!)

The new price breakdown on these big printers from HP is below.
