Excerpt: This printer has exceeded my expectations. However, whoever affixed the UPS shipping label to the box placed it right on top of the UPC code, which was needed for the rebate. I used Staples chat twice for advice; neither rep was particularly helpful.
Conclusion: I have had my pro-100 for about a year now and it had taken into the shop twice. Both times it was rendered head and this last time also included a collector. No stores in my area carry the ink cartridges for it, so I have ordered them online and because of it, it's easiest order all 8 at once. However I have had several of the cartridges tell me they are empty when they are not. It shuts down the printer and I have to place the cartridge it's saying is in the.
Pros: Easy Setup, High Quality Output, easy to use
Cons: unreliable, ink cartridges expensive and unreliable.
Conclusion: I've had the Pro-100 for two months. The Printer does a good job of printing on various mediums. The Software that comes with it is pathetic. You cannot size an art print on a piece of medium with the software that comes with this machine. If you want to print an 11 x17 or a 12 x 16 on a 13 x 19 piece of photo paper , there is no way to do this !! It will print in some oddball size that you cannot buy a frame for.
Summary: I bought the Canon Pixma pro-100 a few months ago and the printer is great for photos but for paper printing it eats a lot of ink. It gets very expensive to print on paper about 30 pages per cartridges.
Excerpt: I bought this strictly for making large format prints, and it does a beautiful job of it. I'm printing from LR3 and with the stock Canon profiles the prints come out a nearly perfect match to what I see on the monitor. Rich colors and even more impressive, very impressive B&W prints.
Summary: The printer was easy to set up and connect wirelessly to my Macbook Air. However, response and printing times tended to be slow. Quality of prints was good, but the software left a lot to be desired. The Pro 100 is a replacement for an older S 9000, which gave excellent results until the printer head became clogged.
Summary: This printer was shipped to me with a yellow ink cartridge that was so old it was unusable. The technician we hired to set up the printer on our network said that it would actually have damaged the printer if it was used. Glad we had an expert to stop us from doing so. Be careful and examine the print cartridges carefully before installing.
