Ok I just purchased the mentioned printer, and set it up today on my Mac Pro. I purchased some Ilford Galerie Gold Silk Fibre paper to use for a couple of B&W prints that I will print out through CS5.

I have downloaded the appropriate paper/printer profile from Ilford and installed it, can you think of any user tips or tricks to get the most out of this beast, the 13x19 sheets are not cheap so want to limit waste if possible.

Thank you.

Definitely get your monitor calibrated if you have not already. It really saves money in the long run. You will run through ink REALLY fast if you keep printing stuff out because colors are just a little bit off!

I'm sure you will enjoy the printer, though. I have a pro9000, and am constantly blown away by the picture quality!

Hey there, I have the previous 9000 printer model also and have to agree...get your monitor profiled.....I wasted a lot of paper/ink/time and patience (and nerves) before I got my monitor calibrated (and still do even after it haha)
