HP DesignJet Z9+ 44-in PostScript Printer

Deliver photo-quality prints 2.5 times faster1 without losing quality. Simplify your workflow with new tools in the HP Applications Center.

This printer is intended to work only with cartridges that have a new or reused HP chip, and it uses dynamic security measures to block cartridges using a non-HP chip. Periodic firmware updates will maintain the effectiveness of these measures and block cartridges that previously worked. A reused HP chip enables the use of reused, remanufactured, and refilled cartridges.
