Not as good as I expected.,
This review is from: Canon Pixma PRO 9500 MARK II Inkjet Colour Printer (Personal Computers)
I've had this printer at least a couple of years now and have not had any problems with it and can recommend it for its quality of printing. Having said that, my Canon i990 A4 printer produces slightly better quality prints when I do a direct comparison, side by side, from any photo's from my Canon 5d Mark II. At photo-fairs, etc., when visiting the Canon stand and viewing their 'examples', there is no chance of recreating their quality of picture/finish on my 9500 II at home later. The specialists at my local camera shop agree with me on this; maybe the Canon people do something with them on a computer first? Also, I have never found any difference with the quality of prints with printing off through a laptop using Canon's Digital Photo Pro (via the 'plug in printing') or printing off via Pictbridge direct from the camera. If you need to do A3 size then I recommend this printer. However, if A4 is enough, then seek out a Canon i990 for a lot less money.
