Read HP's official statement
In reply to Gesture, Jul 24, 2013

On July 7, 2010, I posted an official statement to me from Porter-Novelli, HP's public-relations agency regarding the fate of its higher-end desktop printer line. I was asking specifically about the B9180, but the reply was more wide-ranging. My advice to you: Buy an Epson or Canon printer. I own two HP Z3100 printers (a 44-inch and a 24-inch), and I would not it again.

By "B-sized," they mean 13 x 9 inches (actually 9.84 x 13.9 inches or 250 x 353 mm).

You can read my original posting below, but I posted this originally in the thread:

In an e-mail conversation today [July 7, 2010] with HP's media-relations agency about a different printer matter, I asked about the fate of the market served by the highly regarded but now discontinued HP B9180. Here is the answer, word for word, without any added commentary or grammatical corrections from me:

"Beginning fall 2009, HP also began discontinuing it B-sized printers in the consumer inkjet portfolio, including the HP Photosmart Pro B9180. Though many of the B-sized products are no longer available from HP directly, HP continues to offer Original HP inks and specialty media compatible with these printers so owners can continue to enjoy optimal quality, reliability and ease of use when printing photos or documents. To meet the needs of advanced prosumers looking for professional printing solutions, HP offers the HP Designjet 130 printer and the HP Designjet Z Series photo printers as an alternative."
