Our HP DesignJet 650C works great w/ GRASS.  Our's has the optional
PostScript interface, so ps.map output can be sent directly to it
(well almost, see
<ftp://moon.cecer.army.mil/pub/grass/incoming/add.pagesize>).  If you
don't have a PostScript interface, Aladdin Ghostscript version 3.51
<http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/index.html> supports the HP650, so give
that a try.

Hope this helps.
