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.
Summary: I tried to submit this review to Canon.com, but they rejected it, "your review did not meet our guidelines for posting on our site." Title: What a Ripoff! Short story: It should just work but it doesn't, what an expensive ripoff! Long story: I bought the 9500 Mk II 2 years ago in a bundle with a 5D.
Reasonable quality print and B&W, but unreliable printer

Summary: I owned this printer for about three years. Overall, while I originally loved the printer because of its wide format and multiple shades of black, in the long run I found that the quality of the photo prints was not quite as good as other, less expensive printers.
