Summary: I purchased my new, well-built Canon S9000 in 2003. The S9000 was not the current model, but it was cheaper than the current model at that time. I "loved it, loved it, loved it!" In 2009, I had it serviced by Pacific Office Equipment in Sacramento due to the built-in waste tank needing emptying. I "loved it, loved it, loved it!" It ran till 2014 and started sticking.
Summary: I have owned the little brother of the S9000, the S900 for a long time and found it to print good quality photos and good enough text. The problem with the Canon S900 and Canon S9000 printers nowadays is the printhead. If your printhead goes bad, you can not get a new one. Canon does not make them and as of this writing it seems nobody else is re-manufacturing them or making aftermarket QY6-0039 printheads. Nice printer but don't expect it to last..
Love to make color prints on fabrics, thin plastics: a craftperson dream

Summary: Canon printers do a nice job on color prints. I love mine because their ink cartridges have no chips and are easy to refill without taking the cartridges out of the printer, providing you have refillable cartridges. Only the later models have this. The canon printers they have out now, all have chips. This is the only printer that I could print on burlap, jute or hemp to make handbags or totes.
If I could purchase a print head I would still be using it.

Summary: I have had a Canon S9000 printer for abt 8 years. I loved the quality of pictures it printed. My print head went bad so I ordered this printer for parts. It also has a bad print head. So now I have 2 printers that don't work and they have discontinued the print head.
Summary: its a great printer - older model but great pictures up to 13x19. it was my second of this same printer,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,that is how much i like it would buy another
Summary: I WAS WORKING WITH THE EPSON PRINTERS 1280-2000-1520 UNTIL SOMEBODY TOLD ME ABOUT THE CANON S9000 SO I GET ONE FROM EBAY VERY CHEAP FOR MAKE A TEST AND CHECK IF REALLY IS AS GOOD AS THE FRIEND TOLD ME-AND BELIVE ME- MY FRIEND WAS WRONG YES WRONG! BECAUSE THIS PRINTER IS VERY NICE SUPER ECONOMIC AND PRINT BEAUTIFULL PICTURES TO 13X19 YOU CAN PRINT A LONG ONE IF YOU LIKE IT AND YOU ARE GOING TO BE VERY HAPPY WITH THE CLEAN AND SHARPS PICTURES AND THE MORE IMPORTANT THING...
Summary: This printer really is fast and the graphic quality is awsome. I like the idea of being able to replace only the color cartridge that is empty and not have a real expensive (all in one-wasteful color cartridge)where when one color goes out the cartridge is lost.
Summary: I have found the 9100 to be a fine printer for the digital photographer enthusiast and especially useful for turning our posters for a local theatre group. However, I tried to economise by buying cheaper inks and now find that my prints are never of the correct hue. They are all tending towards the blue end of the spectrum. I am wondering if returning to Canon inks will solve this problem or if my printer is past its sell by date.
Summary: The canon S9000 printer is a good printer for colour work provided the results are not for permanent storage. Fading is evident after a few months. Some banding and missing lnes appear on standard printing mode. The choice of paper and ink is crucial to consistency. I could not obtain sellable prints with it. The printer can stop printing halfway and spit out an unfinished job.
