Worst Canon Printer Ever!
Canon 9000 Mark II is horrible. Print quality is the worst of any Canon printer I have owned. It prints with blotches and bands. I have cleaned the head and cleaned the head and cleaned the head. Still prints with blotches and bands. Would not recommend this printer. Other Canon printers that cost way less give better quality.

Totally satisfied with this printer. It seems to use a bit less ink than my last printer from another company. And the ink cartridges are some of the cheapest around. Stunning images.

I've had this printer for 8 mos. and I am surprised (in a good way) every time I use it. Both B & W, and color rendition are superb. Inks are expensive, and certain colors always run out quickly, not sure why. That aside, this printer is all that you need for pro quality prints, unless you need to print larger than 13" x 19". And to answer another reviewers complaint, yes, you can print 11" x 14" or 11" x 17", when you go through Adobe LightRoom, in their print module. EASY! Certain papers are hard to find profiles for, but you experiment, and you get the results. LOVE it!

Easiest setup ever
The Pixma pro9000mark II is the easiest setup I ever had using the software , it took only five minutes to set it up! The prints are fantastic, I tried several different canon paper types and they all work great, although the pro platinum seems about the best. I would highly recommend this printer to anyone .
