Summary: Not as adept at printing black and white photos as i had hoped. Color printing seems okay. The blacks in the color prints do fine. Printing the sRGB gamut images is what it does best. Have yet to get adobe RGB to print with consistancy. Speed is great. Ink levels do ok for 8.5 x 11. Printing 13 x 19 with high quality selected can drain them pretty fast as expected, with such low capacity inks. Overall pleased, just disappointed with the lack of deep blacks.
NEED ADJUSTMENT BECAUSE LACK OF COLOR OR CALIBRATE TO HAVE THE CORRECT PICTURES MAY BE

Summary: I CAN'T SAY TO MUCH YET, I HAVE BEEN READING A LOT OF REVIEWS AND ALL ARE VERY GOOD ABOUT THIS PRINTER, I MADE THE INSTALLATION AND ALREDY PRINTED SOME PICTURES THAT I HAVE IN MY COMPUTER WITH A CANON PHOTO PAPER TOO BUT THERE AREN'T WHAT I WAS EXPECTING: LACK OF QUALITY, THEY LOOKS A LITLE WASHED, NEED MORE COLOR I THINK I HAVE TO ADJUST OR CALIBRATE THE PRINTER OR LESS COLOR ON MY MONITOR ( I DID WITH A COLOR BARS PATTERN) BUT NO ONE PRINTER BEFORE HAS THIS PROBLEM...
Summary: Just received my Canon Primxa pro 100 and the wireless set up was impossible for this user who got lost when the instructions asked me to identify my stealth setting, differentiate between WPA and some other Wpa, etc, etc.so I just had to use the usb port using the short 4.5ft cable. As mentioned in another review this printer needs to be connected to USB to get program updates. I would not recommend this as a wireless printer.
Conclusion: I was anxious to get this printer when I ordered it, based on the other good reviews. It worked great and performed well while it worked, the only drawback; it lasted for about one year and the ink clogged up. In all honesty, I was hospitalized due to an amputation of my right foot and wasn't around the product to use it for three months.
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.
