It's not just the low end ones. Place I worked for bought an A1 plotter. Had
to play for ages till I found out that the PostScript was a software RIP
that had to run as an WinNT service ( I was just support not purchaser).
The documentation didn't go out of it's way to point this out either.
Needless to say it went back to the vendor pretty quickly after that.
