I have been watching this post with interest as I just recently leased a new 24 inch Z3100 and had great hopes after reading a number of very positive reviews etc. about it.
My thoughts are thus and are only my two cents, but I have to say that I have taught my children that when they make a mistake the best thing to do is admit to it first then see what needs to be done going forward not to make the same mistake a second time especially if it hurts or affects others around them.
I am obviously very naive in that I expect the same type of reaction when a large corporation royally screws (yes I know very, very naive) up as HP appears to have done with the Z3100. Why haven't they contacted the purchasers of this product and explained to them personally what they intend to do to make things right. It seems from this post that some have their ear, but we all deserve to be spoken to and given answers for what is a partially working product and an expensive one at that. I am not as well versed with regards to testing for color issues etc. as others seem to be here, but I know when something doesn't look right and things don't look right and need to be fixed.
I am considering just speaking with my attorney to see if there is some way to get out of my lease and return what is in my mind a defective product or lemon.
Anyway after last nights attempt to follow the install instructions for ICC profiles from the HP sight I had had my fill and decided to vent here.
I don't expect perfection, but for the price of this printer I had hoped/expected to get a functioning printer able to produce something close to reality.
I am assuming that this is a media profile, but just wanted to be 100% sure?
