Canon Pixma Pro 1
The Bottom Line
Right from initial printer profiling, the attention to print quality is clear, and the gloss coat adds a visible improvement to prints on some glossier surface papers. For black and white printing, results 'out of the box' were generally acceptable, but could in many cases be slightly improved with the creation of linearising profiles.

Our Favorite Online User Reviews for the Canon Pixma 1
The quality of the prints out of this printer is fantastic. Rich blacks, even grey tones, even color gradations with no banding, fine details, everything I've thrown at this printer it has done well.
The prints I get are better than lab quality. My customers love them. Yes, this printer is large and heavy. I didn't have the desk space so I bought a roller cart and just wheel it around when I need it. All my other printers are in the printer graveyard in the garage since my purchasing of this one. It's worth the money and worth the time to get everything calibrated. You won't be disappointed.
This printer is an amazing piece of kit.. If black and white is what you print most, the question is simple... get the Pro 1. In regards to actual configuration, setup is a snap. It just takes a long time, so be prepared to consume an hour or more of time unboxing, installing cartridges and print head and then installing the printer software.
