Summary: pro:outstanding product as per CANON quality. easy set up w/mac. great print on printable cd, photos. would recommend to anyone who needs a versatile printer. LOVE IT!!! con: big and heavy, expensive ink.
Conclusion: After using this printer for a short time and printing some Fantastic prints, I can't say enough about it. I have printed a bunch of 13 X 19 prints and I am blown away by the quality of the final product. The printer is FAST and QUIET. I would recommend this printer to anyone who likes making there own prints to enjoy hanging on the wall.
Excerpt: This Canon Pixma Pro-100 is the best photograph printer I have ever owned. The print quality is much better than I had expected. The color of the photos is very vibrant and the color scheme is flawless. I am a hobbyist photographer and I must admit it is a little pricey, but if you want to do quality printing this is the printer for you.
Summary: Superb prints. When comparing several prints, I could not tell which were from MeridianPro and which came out of this printer. Ink usage is less than I expected (feared). The 8 cartridges seem to economize ink usage. Software alerts avoid ink emergencies. Printer is solid, heavy, closes up to protect itself from dust, seems to be built to survive earthquakes and small children.
Summary: Nice to be able to print large prints in my studio. Just understand this is a LARGE printer. It takes up a lot of space. Does a nice job on prints and the OS X software has lots of options. WiFi printing works great.
Fantastic prints that have no visible inkjet dots.

Summary: Since the introduction of inkjet printers in the early 1990s I have owned Epsons, Canons, HP's ranging from basic consumer models to more high end models aimed at graphic designers. The printer I am replacing is a Canon i9900 that also prints 13 x 19 and uses an 8 ink cartridges system.
Summary: I love it. I upgraded to this printer from an old, probably first generation Canon Pixma photo printer. I am very satisfied with this printer! The rebate is what sold me on this model - a $400 printer wasn't really in my budget, but with the rebate it's essentially a $100 printer. At that, it's a no-brainer. Ink is expensive, yes, but you have to weigh the pros and cons of your particular printing needs to determine if it's worth the trouble.
