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. More important, the printer's most expensive part, the print head assembly, malfunctioned slightly over one year (so it was out of warranty).
Another b200 error, dead printer after 12 months of use
21 September 2012
Summary: I used this printer for about 50 8.5x11 sheets, paid for a new batch of ink, ten tanks at $145. Bought new paper and decided to have a guy come over who charges $125/hour to profile the new paper and printer only to turn it on the next day and get flashing blue and orange lights and no movement. This turns out to be error b200, a dead printer. Twenty days after the one year warranty is up. The printer is dead. I feel I wasted a lot of money.
Very Good Looking Prints But Not For The Casual User
7 September 2012
Summary: I've been using the Canon Pro9500MkII for about 10 months. Using printer profiles it makes very good looking prints. B&W prints look excellent. However, I now understand why Canon is willing to let this printer go for so cheap after mail in rebates. It is because they make it and much, much more up with ink cartridge sales.
Summary: do not buy this printer if you plan on using it once in awhile, does not work if it sits for a few months, will need all new ink and head cleaning. Work and $$$$ to get it goin after ink and head sits for a few months. SERIOUSLY........
Summary: First let me say I am a fan of Canon, I own several Canon cameras and a assortment of lenses etc... I also have a i860 printer which I have had for over eight years pretty much trouble free. So I am not here to bash Canon. I purchased ($525.00)the 9200 MKII as part of a package deal with one of my cameras thinking it would be a great addition to my photography....
Summary: I own Canon Pixma 9000. Great printer, great prints, and FAST. So I bought a Canon Pixma pro 9500, Nice prints, just hit print and go make your self a cup of coffee and a sandwich, this is the slowest printer I have ever heard about. One print comes out the front and the machine sits there wirring and banging for two minutes before it will even start the next print. If you want the big prints, you can go get another job to fill the time while you wait for the print.
Summary: When this printer was announced by Canon, I was excited and couldn't wait to buy it. The workflow and features are so apealing but it has gloss problem. Let me give a bit of a background. When Epson 2200 came out, I rushed to store and bought it and found out that when printed on a premium glossy paper (simigloss and premium luster ok), the deep black parts of the photo are matted and when viewed in angle from the side the black parts appear almost negative.
Summary: sono molto deluso dal prodotto,innanzitutto con una stampante da 10 cartucce mi aspetterei una qualità di stampa eccellente :invece la posso ritenere non oltre il buono. inoltre a mio parerela quantità di inchiostro delle cartucce è veramente minima,io stampo prevalentemente con il formato a3piu',cosi facendo ogni due stampe mi ritrovo a sostituire almeno una cartuccia che magari non ho al momento interrompendo la stampa.Per qualche poi minuto la stampante continua...
