    Figured Id throw this out there in case someone here is selling.
    Im looking to possibly buy a decent used flatbed. Leaning towards an hp fb500/550 but am all ears for other recommendations or others that are for sale.

    I may be wrong but hasn’t HP set an EOL on these printers? Get one cheap now but the costs could skyrocket once inks and parts stop

    Yes. Ideally we would upgrade before it ever became an issue.

    Contractors, manufacturers and b2b retailers with a similar target market. Safety related signage is a part of it

    Do many people use their roll option? What about white?

    No real need for the roll-to-roll option on mine since I have HP latex roll-to-roll. As the white option is a $10K upgrade, I couldn’t see the ROI for it so I took it off my order before receiving my 550.

    Do you ever wish that you had it? There always seems to be a work around for it

    Nah, anything I can print from a roll goes through the Latex 365, it’s better quality (deeper/richer/solid colors), if I didn’t have it, I would opt for the FB roll accessory though.

    I have an FB950 in clean shape. I'm fixing a UV sensor and she's ready.
