It's wonderfully OKWe ran a couple 1st generation latex printers for a number of years and, despite their quirks, we were quite pleased with them. When it finally came time to put one of them out to pasture, I figured that a step up to the latest and greatest bulk-ink model would be a great upgrade. In some respects it has been an improvement, but overall the experience has been quite mixed. The printer performs fine in most respects, except for one critical area; color profiling. HP has tried to try to make the printer automated in every way that they can, but the results are not up to par. Manual profiling through Onyx still yields far superior results, yet that process is a little cumbersome as it wasn't intended to function that way. There are frequent errors and glitches between the printer and the rip. While I have finally gotten to a place where the color seems to be OK, it has taken over a year to get here. While I wouldn't completely rule out HP for our next printer purchase, I'm not quite as eager to buy another one as I was with this one.

Very solid printerI purchased the 570 over a year ago and owning other latex printers, knew the basics. It's definitely a more consistent printer with color and is our go to for wraps. Like the 3L box ink as opposed to cartridge only, which does help with the cost but is still a concern with HP OEM inks. Like the speed and the ability to increase or decrease ink saturation fairly easily along with the 64" media availability. Cons: Heater door that you have to remember to always lift or will jam the media, and start up time(slow). Seems to be much slower than the other latex machines but much faster in print time when it is continuously moving from print to print. Overall, if you are a consistently busy shop, it is a nice addition to your operation.
