Great Output - Not so Great Ink Cartridges

J. T. Strong, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: The Pixma Pro 9500 Mk II without a doubt produces some absolutely stunning images. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. However, the 14ml ink tanks are in a constant state of nearing empty. It seems like there's always a warning of low ink on one or two cartridges. And when I change an empty cartridge, once it goes through its priming cycle for a new cartridge there's almost always another one that suddenly is getting close to being empty. It's a constant state.

My First Major Printer - Disappointed with the Ink Quantity/Cost

Heather, Amazon
27 November 2010
  • Summary: I won't falter this printer for it's printing ability. My photos and design work turn out beautifully. However, it has nine ink cartridges and each one is about 2 x 3 inches with a depth about the width of my finger. Each one is quite small and quite expensive about $20 per cartridge. And then, when a cartridge is "empty" the printer won't print.

Limitations for non glossy printing

Dale Garman, Amazon
25 November 2009
  • Summary: I have used the Epson R1800 (and the smaller R800) for several years and when it wasn't clogged it printed beautiful prints. The heads finally just clogged up and I was forced to get another printer. I have used other Canon products for decades so biased toward their products. I thought the Canon would be better on the clogging, and I haven't had it long enough to judge that yet. So far I am somewhat disappointed with the printer.

Poor print quality on Glossy paper

G. Jones, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this printer when if first came out. Very few reviews were available then. I have been very disappointed in print quality on glossy paper, even Canon's own Photo Paper Plus Glossy. I had some cheap paper from local office supply store laying around (Staples Photo Supreme Satin). The Pro9500 does print very well on this Satin paper which is kinda a smooth matte paper.

ink use

Mr. M. Warrick, Amazon
27 April 2009
  • Summary: Personally I would not buy this printer purely because the inks are very expensive and DO NOT LAST - because the tanks themselves are too small. Canon should reduce the cost of these tanks.
