Shoddy quality

ticked, Canon
28 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Purchased the Pro9500 Mark II to enable me to print large pictures after vacation trips. I have owned it for about 2 years now. First impression, excellent. Pictures come out with amazing clarity. After printer was left unused for a couple months, the paper feed for large prints quit working. Called Canon and got it repaired. Now here it is about a year later and minimal usage in that time, same exact problem. It is broken again. Do not waste your money on this printer.
  • Pros: High Quality Output
  • Cons: unreliable

Major Limitations with Fine Art Papers

PDXPhotoBug, Canon
29 December 2010
  • Conclusion: First, let me say that I am a loyal Canon customer and have been using their products for over 30 years. This is really my first bad experience with any Canon product. Don't get me wrong, I like the quality of the images produced by my 9500 Mk II just fine. The 10 color ink system does a great job. My biggest challenge and disappointment with the printer is the fact that it will not print standard 8.5x11 or 13x19 images on fine art paper.
  • Pros: reliable, durable, High Quality Output
  • Cons: Low Productivity, Poor Media Handling

Washed up

GERRITL, Canon
31 August 2010
  • 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.

PRO 9500 USES LOTS OF INK

VONZABLE, Canon
4 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The quality if OK if you use the plug in that Canon makes for photoshop. I wish Canon would have named ALL of their papers to match the selections in the software. This printer is very expensive to keep filled with ink.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Small Footprint
  • Cons: High Running Cost, software issues

Tintengrab

Hitta, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: Dieser Drucker ist zwar nicht mehr der jüngste, aber sicherlich wird Canon an einem für Verbraucher wichtigen Punkt auch bei den Nachfolgemodellen nichts verändert haben. Er ist ein wahres Tintengrab. Er reinigt sogar innerhalb eines Druckvorgangs von mehreren Seiten, er reinigt, bevor er anfängt, er reinigt, bevor er aufhört. Und bei jedem Reinigungsgang wird Tinte verbraucht.

Exzellenter Drucker mit unangenehmen Trinkgewohnheiten

Peter Panacotta, Amazon

  • Summary: So gut dieser Drucker auch sein mag. Der unglaubliche Tintenbedarf disqualifiziert das Gerät für den professionellen Einsatz (Wie bei mir)
