LIMITED PRINTING

EARLE, Canon
30 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Do not purchase this printer if you intend to print envelopes or smaller heavier stock. I'll assume the printer does a good job printing photos etc., however I had horrible results on 1/2 the envelopes I tried to print. They fed through very crooked. Those that worked were fine. Secondly, the guides on the back feed slot for heavier stock can only adjust to a preset width and cannot print also of sizes.
  • Cons: unreliable

Not happy with purchase

pjlee, Canon
22 November 2013
  • Conclusion: I've had this printer for a few months. It was challenging to set up and it took me quite some time to figure out how to print. Finally I was able to print and the ink wasn't printing properly. I followed the canon trouble shooting and cleaned the ink, followed with 2 deep cleanings, cleaned the tray, everything. Initially group 2 wouldn't print. Then just black and Cyan were not printing. After a few more deep cleans, I was able to print.
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Large Footprint, Low Quality Output, unreliable

A Tale of Two Printers - and Two Different Levels of Customer Service

Cynthia, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: I was in the market for a professional grade photo printer for use with my Photoshop CS and Lightroom applications when I saw that some compelling rebates were offered for this printer. I already own a desktop Canon printer and a Canon digital camera, so I was confident in the quality of the brand, and ordered the printer. Amazon delivered the printer promptly, on a Friday afternoon, and as soon as I received it I began the setup process with high expectations.

Update From Sept 23, 2013

Bruce, Canon
24 September 2013
  • Conclusion: 09/24/2013. Update on my prior review. Tried printing again this morning. No difference. Did another print head cleaning. This time PM and Y printed M still blank. I didn't notice it yesterday, but now the ink status shows under half remaining for the PC/M/Y/PM ink wells. Visually checked them. All are nearly full with a couple of slightly larger bubbles than the day before. Did another deep cleaning on group 1 (PC/M/Y/PM) ink wells.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, High Quality Output, easy to use
  • Cons: Large Footprint, unreliable, ink monitors not accurate

Great When It Worked

Bruce, Canon
23 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Ordered June 6, 2013, delivered June 13, 2013. Hook up was simple. Bit surprise by the size of the ink wells. For such a large printer they are about the same size as the ink wells on my Pixma iP5000. Like the old iP5000, it seems to take forever to actually print something. There is a lot of noise coming from the printer, I am guessing it is priming the print heads or something, and it seems to take an inordinate amount of time to actually start printing.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
  • Cons: Large Footprint, unreliable, expensive inks, small ink wells, takes time to start printing

Please Read This If You Are Considering This Printer

G. Wesley Aven, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: I have worked for over 30 years doing color quality control in graphic arts business producing color work for Ell, Good Houskeeping and many other large publications where color is very critical. I have use many sizes and brands of printers. I found that the Canon i9900 was as good as most of the very expensive proofing systems used in the industry. In my openion the Pro 100 does a poor job of producing accurate color.

Ink Sensors

  • Conclusion: First unit was DOA. Second unit (new) worked but; After printing two things, ink was being reported as 1/2 consumed. Printed a few 'plain paper' text pages, and one or two ink wells started flashing 'empty' printed a 2-3 shipping labels from UPS, and now da.mn near every single ink well is flashing empty, and I have to click OK a half dozen times, followed by holding the 'resume button' for 5 seconds, and spin in my chair 3 times followed by pressing OK a few more times,...
  • Pros: High Quality Output, fast print speed

Mängel im WLAN

HG, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Nach Kauf der Kompaktkamera Canon PowerShot SX280HS suchte ich nach einem passenden WLAN-Drucker, um Bilder drahtlos von der Kamera zum Drucker senden zu können. Fündig wurde ich bei Canon mit dem Drucker PIXMA Pro-100, der diese Möglichkeit bieten sollte. Doch die Ernüchterung erfolgte nach dem Kauf, die von mir gewünschte Option in Verbindung mit den beiden Geräten funktioniert nicht.
