    We have a 750 HS plus. HS just means ours is faster [High Speed].

    Great machine. Make sure it's in complete working condition. They aren't cheap to fix.

    Ours new... cost around $18,500.

    Haven't had anything done to it since the day we bought it... June 1995 and it's still going strong.

    We have an S-750 built in 1989 and still going strong. Just keep it clean and lubed and it will run forever.

    What you need to look into is how you're going to drive it. Your profile says nothing about what you may already have in the way of software or hardware. I drive my S-750 with an interface card supplied by Gerber called an LMK card. In addition, I create and send my jobs from Gerber Omega software.

    There are probably other ways to drive the plotter but I would be unable to describe the setup.

    Thanks guys for the helpful info! i really do not have any software...actually this may be my first purchase in starting my "decal business/hobby". I am sure if i buy this machine, the seller will point me in a direction of software, etc. thanks again!

    Don't buy the machine without the software. Otherwise you'll find yourself looking at $2000 + to buy that.
