I have been through a lot of Canon inkjet printers, and I can say that I know the name to be a good brand. So I didn’t hesitate to replace my old printer with a Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Inkjet Photo Printer. I took this photo printer because I also recently developed a liking to printing my family’s pictures. Since photo inkjets are great for both documents and pictures, then it would be like hitting two birds with one stone. But I still prepared this detailed review of the product so you can learn more about it.
I know many new technologies are coming out of the market, but I chose to get this model because I really don’t need a network since I only have one home computer. I don’t need multifunctional devices either because I don’t really work at home. I just want a good printer with remarkable photo printing quality for my personal use, and I thought this model is perfect. It doesn’t have any display. It’s just a plain, conventional printer with light and dark shades of gray that looks good in any room and with any home decor. It doesn’t have an LCD display and the device can’t be operated without a PC that’s why you always have to have it connected to your computer.
It’s quite long but it’s pretty compact with the dimensions of 26.0″ x 13.9″ x 7.6″. It has a weight of 32.4 pounds, a little heavy for such a small device. But it’s still easy enough to settle on a tabletop or desktop. It’s necessary to keep it close, though, seeing as it does not support wireless connectivity and you have to limit your length from the printer to the computer as dictated by the length of the cable that you will use. That’s a different issue, though, because the printer doesn’t have a connectivity cable in the package and I had to look for one myself.
Printing and Other Functions
Other than having to buy the cable myself, I think this printer has very few flaws. For one, it is an excellent printer. It’s more expensive compared to many other Canon inkjet printers, but it’s definitely worth every penny. The printer can produce output of as fast as 47 seconds for 8″ x 10″ borderless color photos, while it can produce 11″ x 14″ color photos on 13″ x 19″ paper in a speed of 1 minute and 23 seconds. The print resolution of the device for both black and colored documents is 4800×2400 dpi, which is lot number printer a guarantee that you will be able to produce clear, crisp, and very vibrant printouts of all kinds of images.
It can support paper sizes of 4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″, 8″ x 10″, Letter, Legal, 11″ x 17″, and 13″x 19″. It has an automatic sheet feeding tray which can carry up to 150 sheets of paper, while its front output tray can hold a single sheet of paper with thickness up to 1.2 mm. This is also a very silent printer. It only produces sound of up to 42.5 decibels, comparably better than other models. Other Features
The printer has an 8-color dye-based system which features photo cyan, photo magenta and red ink cartridges for incredible colors. There are also various editing tools which you can use to make your photos more beautiful such as automatic photo fixing and ambient light correction. You can also make use of a PictBridge-enabled camera to print on the device without a PC, the only method which allows you to do so. Finally, the model is a member of the Generation Green campaign as well as an Energy Star qualified printer so when you use it, you also help save Mother Nature.
There is no doubt that this is an excellent photo inkjet printer, and unlike most Canon inkjet printers, the Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Inkjet Photo Printer can definitely produce the best images in the fastest time. I am perfectly satisfied by the very beautiful, color-rich, and realistic printouts that this device produces, and I can highly recommend it to anyone who wants not just a good printer, but an excellent inkjet printer for that matter.
