Being as honest as I can

  • Conclusion: The PIXMA PRO-1 is heavy and covers half of my computer desk. The PIXMA PRO-1 so far has eaten the ink cartridges very quickly which is not cost effective. Now, I have to say that I have been printing on 13X19 high glossy paper, so that might have something to do with it. The reasons why I would not recommend this printer is because of the size and the speed of the use of ink. It is also slow at printing, but the clarity of the pictures are of a high quality.
  • Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, High Quality Output, easy to use
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, Large Footprint

This is an enormous printer

  • Excerpt: That's good stuff.<br /><br />I got this printer in a bundle with a Canon 6D + 24-105 F4 L lens, Adobe Premier Software, and a 50 pack of 13&quot; x 19&quot; Canon Photo Paper. This printer is enormous and it weighs quite a bit. Its shipping weight is 80 lbs and out of the box, the printer itself weighs a good 60 lbs. I need another body to help me move this printer around.<br /><br />Out of the box it takes a good amount of time to set everything up.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors, Easy To Use, Great Overall Quality, Reliable
  • Cons: Hard Setup, Large Footprint, Pricey Ink Replacement, Slow Print Time

High Quality Printer

Tomcat, Canon
6 May 2012
  • Conclusion: This is a tremendous printer, and printing results are astounding! I am disappointed with the ink usage that seems to be inordinately high with this printer. There must be a problem here, or else I'm doing something wrong, but after very little printing, I am already having to replace all of my ink cartridges. This isn't good and I hope this problem can be resolved.
  • Pros: quiet, high quality, great images, disk printing is great!, very quiet
  • Cons: ink usage is very high!!!!!!, heavy

Excellent quality printer

  • Excerpt: A person reviewed this and reported the print head scratching the substrate. I suspect it's because they have set the printer to the wrong media type. The print heads adjust to thickness based on what type of media you've defined. I'm printing on water resistant canvas 440gsm, heavy stuff. Prints flawlessly, no heads scratching.
  • Pros: Durable construction, Easy To Set Up, Multiple media printing, Reliable
  • Cons: Large Footprint

amazing image quality

  • Excerpt: I purchased this printer a few weeks ago and have to say i am impressed with the results so far. Portraits are perfect and my landscapes look great once printed. I have been printing A4 and A3 sized images for framing and display at home and in galleries. Not one person who has looked at my pics has commented that they were not printed professionally. Thats because this is a serious Pro printer.
  • Pros: Durable construction, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Low Ink Consumption
  • Cons: Large Footprint

Top end printer

Countryman, WEX
11 March 2014
  • Summary: This printer is capable of the highest possible quality photo output. Colour images jump off the page, and having a multiple mono ink-set, black &amp; white output is superb. I have not had the printer long enough to monitor its ink usage and suspect it may be a little more expensive per print output than any previous printer I have owned. Printing times for A3 paper are quite a bit longer than when compared to an Epson equivalent printer.
  • Pros: Durable construction, Easy Setup, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Large Footprint

Brilliant but thirsty

  • Summary: Received my Pro1 from wex exactly a month ago and I'm back to buy Ink. That's a bit worrying but here's what is good about the printer first. It's great to look at, solid build, nothing feels like it's about to fall off. It's almost silent when printing with no violent or worrying noises - just nice and smooth printing at an acceptable speed, erring towards slow (I'm ok with that). I have printouts mounted from the R2880, R3000 and the 3800.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Durable construction, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Too much ink used

  • Conclusion: A whopping big peice of machinery but the print quality is excellent. Setup on Mac was easy and instructions easy to follow. Provided software is basic but easy to use. All up am very happy so far. Will be flogging the printer a but soon with some serious photo printing so we'll see how she performs and then will submit a further review. Good product.
  • Pros: Reliable, Easy Setup, Durable, Sharp Tones & Colors, Easy to use
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, Large Footprint, Heavy/Bulky, High Ink Consumption
