Ken - 

I would get the HP 1055cm plus - it's a steady reliable plotter that's
around for a while and still does a great job.  The only problem we have
had is that it did not like heavy weight (36lb) paper (jammed it up),
but this may have been due the brand of paper.  For photo quality
plotting, you'll probably want to spend a little more.  We have the HP
5500ps and it does a great job with imagery - both in plot speed and
quality - but we just had to have some major service work done on it.

Thanks for the info everyone.  The belt controlling
movement of the cartridges is destroyed.  I noticed
some shavings on the paper and took a closer look. 
The rubber on the belt is shredded down to threads. 
Can the belt be replaced by myself or does it require
a professional service person?  Also, this seems like
the opportunity for a new plotter.  For those of you
who have upgraded from this model (hp 750c), would you
recommend doing so now?
