Summary: I purchased this printer from a local camera shop (Canon authorized reseller). I really wanted to purchase the pro-10, but the reseller was fresh out and I only had the option to purchase the pro-1 because I really needed a professional printer to help me take my photography to the next level.
++ Magnificent photo quality but at a cost in speed ++

Summary: The Canon Pixma PRO-1 is large, slow, and expensive for an A3+ photo printer, but it delivers where it counts: in producing magnificent, gallery-quality prints. Pros: + Magnificent photo quality. + Especially good for monochrome photos. + Above-par graphics and text.
Summary: This printer is absolutely amazing; the print quality is breathtaking, whether in color or black & white. Yes, she's big and heavy, but quiet and solid. Some people think she's slow, but I think 2 minutes for an 8x10 is reasonable.
Summary: Unless you just have a ton of money you don't know what to do with and you want to throw it away consider not buying this one. The printer prints beautifully, lovely, the prints are spectacular. The printer also drinks $300 dollar a set ink like there is no tomorrow.
Summary: I've had this printer for a year now. Beautiful prints. Yes, it is slow, but worth it. What is also important to me is that Canon is one of the few companies that have a quality customer support staff...and they don't try to charge you for support. This isn't for the casual snapshot.

Summary: This is a very nice printer an does everything expected. Since this is the first use with the ink supplied with the printer. I will have to wait until I replace them to determine if it is an ink hog. Previously I used several HP printers.
It's a bit heavy and a bit large but the network cabling allows me to place it pretty much anywhere

Summary: I've put this printer through its paces in the first couple of weeks, different paper types, grayscale and color images and am very impressed. It replaced a pro 100 (which the ex got custody of). It's a bit heavy and a bit large but the network cabling allows me to place it pretty much anywhere.
