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: 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.
Summary: I owned a Canon 9000 years ago and loved it. It was my workhorse printer all through architecture school - it printed beautiful images at a respectable pace, never seemed to run out of ink, and never once let me down.
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.

Summary: I purchased this printer in May 2010. In July 2011, after printing less than 100 pictures total, I received an error message that the printer needs to be repaired. No other explanation, nothing in the on-screen manual about the error message received.
Summary: To begin with I will say that I have sometimes been able to produce very nice prints with this printer but for the most part it has been a very expensive and frustrating experience. Starting with ink tank issues, at 15 bucks a pop couldn't they have made the tanks a little larger ?
Summary: I bought the Canon PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II printer after using the Pro9000 at a Canon demonstration for printing photographs. I decided to buy the 9500 Mark II instead of the Pro9000 after reading the Canon brochure a Canon rep gave me.
