  • Excerpt: This is in reference to the PIXMA Pro 1. I cannot believe how useless this printer is. When I say useless I do mean unable to use. I was unable to get quality prints from this when it was working but now that I can't even get it to update to the latest firmware and drivers my computer wont even recognize it. This printer just sits there taunting me, reminding me how much I spent for this heap. I had high hopes for this printer but those have all since been squashed.

Unhappy customer

  • Conclusion: I could not, in good conscience, recommend this printer. Ink use is excessive and reliability is questionable and the cost per print is outrageous.
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Slow Print Speed, Large Footprint, Difficult Setup, Low Quality Output, unreliable, Flimsy Construction, excessive ink usage, ink disappears with no use.

Not for the professional!!

Adorama
30 July 2013
  • Excerpt: No support at all for 11x14 inch prints. If you started with photography with a dark room you know how important 11x14 inch prints are to your business. Canon does not sell 11x14 inch paper. You have to "fool" it by printing on 13x19. In a business this is a waste. The front load is a joke at best, and time consuming. Picture quality is great, but does not make up for the paper issues. can not print borderless on fine art papers.
  • Pros: Sharp Tones & Colors
  • Cons: Front Loading Is Horrible, Hard Setup, No 11x14 Support, No Borderless On Art Pape, No Support From Canon, Unreliable

Poor Quality, High Ink Usage

Joseph, Canon
10 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The printer came new with scratches, small cracks in the case - this was not from shipping, but the way it was built and shipped like that. The printer uses a lot of ink. I already replaced most of the inks once, and the inks are getting low again. I print a few sheets a week. This printer will cost you more in ink and paper supplies per month than the most expensive iPhone plan. The printer wants to cycle its head after a dozen prints, which uses up a lot of ink.
  • Pros: easy to use
  • Cons: Large Footprint, Flimsy Construction
