I've heard that the Pro9500 is better for B&W printing. Uses more ink though.

Use 3rd party ink sources and save money without sacrificing quality. I would be broke by now if I had continued to buy Canon cartridges (or I would have had to limit the amount of printing). I am thoroughly pleased with my printer and Precision Colors ink.

How long have you been using 3rd party ink? I had nothing but grief with 3rd party ink in my i9900. I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on the Pro9000 II but feeding it with Canon ink has me undecided about buy the printer or just having a lab print the final product.

I have one of them. I got it practically for for free from B&H when I bought my 60D. You can find one on Craigslist new for 200 or less if your in an area with a lot of people, a ton of people jumped on that B&H deal and offloaded their brand new printers! I really like mine though, glad I decided to keep it!

There are a couple options for bulk in use. There is a system on ebay sold by a guy in Canada that uses 125ml bulk ink resevoirs and can be had for about US$150. I have had it for about a year and the only complaint is the need to do a deep cleaning if I print nothing for 2 weeks. But I have printed much more images than two full sets of replacement cartridges would have done so I figure I am ahead of the game. The link is http://www.ebay.com …Toner&hash=item​3a54cde33a (external link)
Another option is refillable cartridges but they get messy after the 3 or 4 refill when the seal does not work as well as it should(speaking from experience).

I found this thread helpful, as I am DONE with my older Epson. I went to B&H and they still have the $200 rebate occurring through the end of the month. BUT, there is also a $100 instant rebate on purchases made through June 9th. That takes the final price of the printer to $149! This was a deal I simply couldn't pass up!

I got a new one on Ebay for $225. I love it! I've found it to be pretty efficient with its ink usage. Through printing a host of 13 x 19s, 8.5 x 11s, 4 x 6s, and 5 x 7, I've only had to change the Magenta. Yeah, it's cheaper to outsource, but I like the touch of doing it myself, at will. Plus, I've taken a number of pictures to work and people flock to them (I mean, if I say I have new pictures, they'll sprint over to them); it's revitalized my interest in photography. I have an art show in August and want to continue with that on a larger scale. Maybe get some online presence of some sort going.

That's aewsome! If I didn't already buy one, I'd definitely buy one from them.

I got mine from eBay as well. Paid $53 NIB w/o the print head, still had all the tape and wrapping on the printer. Ended up getting the print head for $80 so I've got $133 in it so far. I've been experimenting with different papers to see which I like best (so far I like Red River).
As far as being cheaper to outsource, I'm not quite sure yet. I'm still figuring the cost per print of outsourcing vs. in-house printing (hopefully cheaper for in-house printing:D).

I feel the exact same way. I also took some enlargements to hang on my wall at work and people love them! :)

Printing, to me, is part of the photo process. I want to make a greater effort to display my pictures one way or another, instead of them merely sitting in my hard drive. I figure there's no reason to have tens of thousands of pictures and thousands of dollar in photo equipment tied up without it being on display. Buying a printer is one way to accomplish that.

Great post and feedback here. It's quite encouraging! Locally here in Cincinnati, a brand new Pro9000 MkII on Craigslist goes for $175-$200... I'm tempted to try it out :D

I currently have a Canon Pixma MG8120. would it be worth grabbing this printer for 149$ off amazons website new? 8120 has a res of 9600 x 2400 to Pro9000's 4800 x 2400

The Pixma MG8120 also prints 8.5x11 to the Pro9000 13x19. Something to consider.
I also just noticed that Amazon has the Pro9000 for $149.99 after $200 rebate.
