I'm looking to buy a new printer in the next month. However, so far the only one that's caught my eye is the canon i9900. I'd like to read from y'all what your thoughts are on this printer.

Thanks,

Alex G

Hey Alex! Great hanging out with you at the Atlanta "Getting Published" workshop!

As you may remember, I was looking into printers too...well, I just got the i9900 last week and I LOVE IT!!!!!!! Amazing B&W prints with no color tint to them straight out of the printer...no wierd changing of ink catridges or anything!

I do not have any color calibration hardware yet.When I am using Canon paper, I get color that is pretty darn close to my monitor!!!! Amazing results and super high quality prints!!!!! I only have slight color tint problems when using other paper brands. I tried using the paper profiles, but that made it worse. So, for now, I will be using Canon paper for my color prints...too bad Canon doesn't make more paper choices.

My vote is that you go for it...I was more than happy with the prints!

Keep in touch!!!!

I have the Canon I9000 which is not the one you're looking at, but in the same family. It produces wonderful prints up to 13 x 19. I love it. Its the first printer I have had that didn't break down after a few months of use ( I have 3 epsons before this).
Cheers,
rfs

Thanks for posting this. I've been looking at the same printer and the answers you got here have made my mind up.

I shopped around quite a bit and landed on the i9900. Haven't looked back since, I love it!
