Looks like I will be upgrading to Land Development 4 and associated software
(Civil and Survey) in the near future, seeing as Autodesk has decided to
make 2000 obsolete. I am also looking at a new plotter to replace my old
but functional HP 650C. HP says that the 800 series plotters are the
"replacement" for the 600 and 700 series plotters, but I am not too thrilled
with spending over four thousand on a new HP 800.
I have heard that there are some unique problems with plotting to the 500
series of plotters, maybe unfounded rumors. If no problems, does anyone run
a 500 or 500 ps with ACAD 2000 (or ACAD 2004) and have any issues? I'm also
looking at "low-end" in the 120 series, although I think that's a bit too
low-end for me.
Would like some recommendations on the ideal bang for the buck in a small
engineering office - we have three workstations on a network, I would like
to run USB cabling, and two of the systems will be running Win XP Pro, one
still has Win 2K.
Thanks for any advice. I'm also going to post a question on archivability
