I'm seeking to purchase a large format printer / plotter. Anticipated need is single-sided 18x24" prints. Color would be beneficial. Print speed is not very important. It will be used by only a couple of Windows 7 PC's with various software - a wired network is available so could be shared on the LAN. I have a quote for a Konica Minolta KIP 700, but does more than we need and is cost prohibitive, if there's something with a smaller capability set and lower cost.
Thanks for your suggestions! I did some cursory searches here, but turned out a lot of outdated info for a model specific question like this.
