Summary: This printer is awesome as long as you tell it what paper to use or else it will not have a good outcome. Currently printing on matte card-stock for my personal portfolio, but will soon be using it for some photography. Once you figure out the settings you can print on everything.
Overall results have been good, but seems expensive per print, and I've found it to have one very annoying flaw.

Summary: I have this printer for several years now. I like that I can print large size pictures with it. It is reasonably accurate colorwise and while I can't say that black and white pictures are perfect, this printer performs better than most that I have had.
Purchased on June 2009 and still prints outstanding prints

Summary: I bought this printer on the reviews that were 4 and 5 star rated. Many of the reviews below the 4 star ratings were from a different printer that should have not been posted on this printers review section.
Summary: You do not want to purchase these series of printers unless your rich and/or have a high tolerance for failure. I've had nothing but problems with my Canon Pro 9500 Mark II since I purchased it. Had to replace the head after a year of purchase.
Summary: As with my first Pixma Pro 9500, the Mark II produces fantastic results and it uses my stock pile of PGI-9 inks. (I understand the new replacement for the Pixma Pro 9500 II is the Pixma Pro 1, which uses a new ink cartridge :-(.
Summary: I waited for a bit to write a review as I wanted take the printer for a little test drive first. I am a mixed media artist and make art with a lot of texture, so I needed a printer that printed detail to match my photos that I take of my work.
