Excerpt: It’s so easy to use too, not like the other printers that has so many buttons to click and at the end you cannot use all the features cause they seemed so many to get familiarize with. I even connect my camcorder direct to this printer and prints whatever I want without getting off the SD card since it has it’s USB Ports. The connection port of this printer is suitable for all kinds of digital cameras and DV camcorders.
Summary: Back when I got my first Canon i9900 photo printer (~2003-2004), I discovered a treasure! I chose Ilford Classic Pearl inkjet paper (no longer manufactured, but Ilford Classic Gloss is still available) Ilford has been in the photographic consumables market since the 1800s A.D.. The Canon i9900 and Ilford Classic paper (specially manufactured for brilliance and longevity with dye-based ink only) produce results so astounding that even those without technical experience...
Pros: I'm used to having to fiddle, after having for years an HP 10ps Designjet; it had the same 13x19 format. I thought I was getting good color then--until I compared prints with my i9900, obtained off ebay for less than $200. Wider color gamut than the hp. T
Cons: I had to replace the printhead. Fortunately, I found some blue cleaning goop that dissolves ink, which works to help keep the new printhead working. The machine is messy and wastes ink, so being a starving amateur I need to use the 3rd party bulk ink. Th
Summary: This unit uses paper sizes from smaller than 4x6 all the way 13x19. It&apos;s the only photo printer I&apos;ve owned. Guests in my home have many times complimented me on my gorgeous artwork, all of which was printed with the Canon i9900. The print head failed during the warranty period, so Canon sent me a replacement and an email explaining how to switch it out. The results are mind-boggling, eye-popping, astounding for any photo printer of any kind.
Summary: I have owned this printer for years, and it is surely the best photo printer I have ever owned. The eight-color ink set makes a huge difference. I also owned a Pixma 6600, which had a six-color ink set. This was a good printer also, but when you look at the prints next to each other, especially where greens are involved, you can see the richness of the greens in the i9900. The 13x19 prints that come out are absolutely astonishing! Thanks for the great product Canon.
Summary: I purchased a Canon i9900 in January 2005 for $540. Like so many of the other reviewers said, it produces beautiful prints. Unfortunately, the downsides are significant. The motherboard failed 3 years ago in 2008; it cost $160 to replace. That replacement motherboard lasted only about 2 years before it also failed. I will not replace it again. On top of these repairs, the ink cartridges were quite expensive, even from online discount sources.
Great Printer Once I figured out how to custom setup - See configuration details!

Summary: Before I bought this printer I did my research as far as the best wide format printer out in the market that is affordable and can print borderless with great quality of prints. All the reviews for this printer were great! However I was skeptical having been a die-hard Epson guy for years, and I thought if I go canon I may not get the rich vibrant photo color prints I normally get with Epsons Photo printers which at the time this i9900 came Epson did not have a...
