Canon PIXMA Pro9500 Reviews

PhotoReview reviews the Canon PIXMA Pro9500 and writes;
“..although it can certainly produce excellent prints under the right conditions. The lack of controls in the printer driver – particularly for B&W printing – puts this printer at a disadvantage against its rivals…”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMag reviews the Canon PIXMA Pro9500 and writes;
“The slow speed carries over into photo printing as well, with the Pro9500 averaging 3:32 for each 4-by-6 and 6:44 for each 8-by-10. The B9180 averaged 2:13 and 3:51, and even that looks slow compared with the Pro9000, which averaged 1:06 and 2:05”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Canon PIXMA Pro9500 and writes;
“the Pro9500 takes their best features and adds the ability to print on even thicker media. I sound like a broken record when I keep saying that the output from these printers is “photo lab quality” but it’s true. ”

Photo-i reviews the Canon PIXMA Pro9500 and writes;
“The Canon Pixma Pro 9500 has been producing excellent quality prints over the last week. With Glossy and Semi Gloss media , it surpassed my expectations. With Fine Art media I was disappointed at first, until I started printing portraits.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Macworld reviews the Canon PIXMA Pro9500 and writes;
“The Pro9500 does a good job with black and white images. When examining such prints on their own, most people felt that the tonal gradations in the Pro9500’s black and white prints were good, although our jury picked the Epson prints—which use a black ink and two grays—over the Pro9500 in every instance.”
