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. First off, you have to be rich to maintain this series of printers. You can put a new cartridge in it, not print anything and when you go to print something half the cartridge is already gone.
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. I installed the printer immediately, but It took me a few months to take some photos worthy enough to print in large format on Canon's expensive photo paper.
Summary: After a year useing this printer I feel I was screwed. The Ink runs out even when your not useing a given color. This is due to a head cleaning every time you go to print. Even if its black print only. It is way cheaper to send your prints out to be enlarged.When this batch of Ink runs out i will trash this costly printer to run.
Summary: I have had this printer for 2 years. Have sent it to be repaired 3 times. Can't even sell it. Had numerable problems with the carriage and the inks dry out very fast and the sweeps that runs across the paper scrape the ink off.. I feel that I just through 700.00+ out the window.The inks are also ridiculously expensive. I bought an Epson.Love it!
Summary: Have had this for a couple of years now and am completely sick of it. Because of the ink, it costs me, on average, $50 each time I turn it on. The one positive - it makes great b&w prints The negatives: Color prints from calibrated sources are all over the map (I regularly print at photo shops with no problems) Can see the ink sitting on top of glossy papers Ink pig Print heads clog easily Wastes ink on ceaseless cleaning cycles Extortionate ink prices I am a...
Summary: I received this as a gift 3-4 years ago. It's probably printed 10 photos. Now it miss feeds every paper I put through it, and when I actually works (only printing on the back of paper) the colours are all wrong. I'll sell it to you for $250 plus shipping.
Pros: It will handle large paper and produce an OK image - eventually.
Cons: Nine VERY expensive ink cartridges that hold about 6 drops each. Every time I turn it on, I have to replace 1 or 2 at $20 each. I have printed less than 20 8X10 prints and have replaced at least 10 cartridges - I've lost count.
Summary: The print quality is pretty good, but it seems every single time I try to print one of the cartridges is out of ink. Add to that the fact that you can't print B&W even when one of the colors is out and it gets annoying very fast. Also had some problems where the ink cartridge would give an error and removing it and re-inserting it sometimes fixes it. Contacted Canon and they told me to buy new ink.
Summary: I bought a Canon Pixma Pro9000 a couple years ago, and I didn't use it very often. Now the printer is broken. I've had a Canon i860. It also only lasted a couple of years before one of the printer heads stopped printing. I owned both Epson and HP printers and they all lasted more than a couple years. My HP Photosmart 7350 is still working. The only complain I have about that printer is that the ink doesn't last long. That's the reason I switched to Canon.
