The 1055CM is a sweet machine - high quality, fast and no problems I've
experienced or heard of.  The ink reservoirs are HUGE and it can take
100 or 300 ft rolls of paper.  It can also accept sheet feed WITHOUT
unloading the roll, which is a plus.  The ink/printhead monitoring
system is great.  And it comes in a very chic Vader-black finish.  I'd
definitely buy this plotter again.

I don't have the multiple roll changer myself - I've heard it is a pain
to change rolls on that.
The optional document bin is rather huge - I wouldn't want that in my
Both of those options might be necessary in a high-volume shop.

I have end of the FY funds and looking to purchase a HP plotter.  Can
anyone tell me their thoughts on the 1055CM, 4400PS or the 5500PS? 
"needed" accessories would be good for each model also.
