Not for the professional

Mat, Canon
30 July 2013
  • Conclusion: If you started in photography with a dark room, like i did, a print size of 11x14 is standard. There is no support for this in the paper profile. This is not acceptable. I will get rid of this printer as soon as i can. I have been a fan of Canon for about 20 years but no longer. Yes you can make a custom size 11x14 but not borderless. That would be ok only the borders are not equal and the bottom is about twice the size of the rest.
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, no support for 11x14 paper, canon does not sell 11x14 paper, front paper feed is a joke

DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!!

  • Conclusion: I purchased this printer at the end of March 2010. It printed perfectly for the first 7 months. With the exception of going through large amounts of ink, it printed high quality images. I was going through a set of ink cartridges about every 12-15 4"x6" and 5"x7" photos on Platinum Pro paper. Cost per photo is a lot higher than I expected. It would be cheaper to have someone else print them.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, High Quality Output, easy to use
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, unreliable, huge ink usage (or wasted), stopped printing yellow & magenta, expensive to own, expensive to operate

Washed up

GERRITL, Canon

  • Conclusion: I have an old Canon i9900 that prints beautiful, vivid color 13 by 19 inch enlargements and am very happy with it still today. I purchased the Pro9500 to reach the next level of quality art prints. After thorough research into color profiles, different papers, print drivers and custom print settings, I must report that the Pro9500 prints I have produced are inferior to others.

NOT for papers other than rag and canvas

shutterbug1, Canon
11 August 2010
  • Conclusion: This printer is only for graphic artists. The brochures fail to tell you this. The Pigment inks provide a watercolor, washed out look. For vivid, color rich photos using anything but canvas and rag matte paper, you will be disappointed at the washed out results. I bought the Pro9500 not knowing this and now and am exchanging it for the Pro9000 Mark II which prints fantastic photos. PHOTOGRAPHERS: buy the Pro9000!!!!
  • Cons: not for printing non-professional images, horrible image results using glossy papers, washed out images on non-rag paper

Don't Buy It

Disappointed, Canon
2 May 2010
  • Conclusion: I have been using the Pixma 9000 for three years and have printed well over 2000 prints of all kinds with beautiful results; this includes B&W, Color, Semi Gloss and Glossy. While there is nothing wrong with my Pixma 9000, it is three years old and I thought it was time for a new printer. So, I purchased a new Pixma 9500 Mark II thinking I would get even more astounding results.......and unless my printer is defective, the quality is far from the same.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, durable
  • Cons: Low Productivity, High Running Cost, Large Footprint, Low Quality Output, Poor Media Handling, unreliable, incapable of printing highlights well., print reflects light strangely., takes longer to print than the 9000, shakes the table more than the 9000, prints do not look like real photos, prints look like they came off a printer.

Das letzte...

  • Summary: Habe mich für diesen Drucker entschieden. Glaubte das Canon auch gute Drucker bauen kann. Mit dem 9500 MK II ist es ja auch nicht der preiswerteste Drucker auf dem Markt. Die Qualtät ist soweit OK. Aber der Tintenverbrauch und Kosten sind schon nervend teuer. Bei fasst jedem Auftrag wird rumgeputzt und geklappert bis dann auch mal gedruckt wird. Mit einer Ladung Patronen schaffe ich es etwa 20 Din A3 Seiten in höchster Qualität zu drucken. Das ist wieder tausch angesagt.

Tintensäufer - nie wieder so eine Canon-Kiste!

  • Summary: Der Drucker ist eine finanzielle Katastrophe! Druckqualität ist 1A, ABER: Es müssen immer mind 5-10 Seiten gedruckt werden, sonst lohnt sich das Ganze nicht. Beim Einschalten führt er diesen unsäglichen Selbsttest / Selbstreinigung durch. Beim Druck von Einzelseiten (10x15) war er nach wenigen Seiten (<20) leer, d.h. er wollte neue Patronen haben. Dann nach 3 Monaten Stillstand die Krönung: Das Drecksding druckte nur noch mit Stich.

langsam, Patronen schwer zu bekommen, teuer

Dr. Robert Aberham, Amazon
4 October 2012
  • Summary: Der Drucker ist im Vergleich zum vorgängermodell (DIN A3 Drucker von Canon) fruchtbar langsam, die Druckaufträge dauern ewig, wenn man die Qualität schwächer stellt, also auf Schnelldruckmodus verblaßen die Farben völlig, die Druckerpatronen sind teuer und der komplette Satz ist sehr schwer zu bekommen, die Bestellung dauert etwa 14 Tage. Echt nicht zu empfehlen!!!!!

Canon PIXMA Pro 9500 Mark II A3 Farb-Tintenstrahldrucker

Mamu, Amazon
1 July 2011
  • Summary: Bin seit einem halben Jahr Besitzer dieses Druckers. Tinte "verputzt" er wirklich überreichlich!!! (Die Bilder sind aber Klasse). Wer mit diesen A3-Drucker nur gelegentlich druckt, sollte dies mit den sehr hohen Tintenverbrauch eher über einen anderes Modell nachdenken. Bei diesem Drucker passieren es mir immer wieder, dass sich einige Patronen eher "leerputzen", als dass deren Tinte je ein Papier erreicht!!
