Those on the market for a large output printer would do themselves a favor by checking out the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9000. It may scare buyers away with its 365 pound weight, but thankfully it comes standard with wheels attached, so users can roll the unit around rather than break bones trying to move it. It will also take up a large amount of space making a footprint of 90.5x31.6x45.1 inches. For small offices, this may be a little too big. However, large offices will find that it fits just fine. The iPF9000 is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, and paper is fed off a roll of paper, instead of through a stack.
Ten Canon iPF9000 ink cartridges are used in conjunction with this machine. Most printers use two or four colors of printer ink, so this is a definite step up. While cyan, black, magenta and yellow inkjet tanks are offered as usual, there are six additional colors of imagePROGRAF iPF9000 ink included. These are photo cyan, green, red, blue, matte black and gray Canon iPF9000 ink.
While some buyers may find that keeping up with ten imagePROGRAF iPF9000 ink cartridges may be more maintenance than they'd like, it is actually very convenient because it will save buyers money in the long run. In printers that use only one inkjet tank, every time one color runs out, the entire thing must be replaced. The use of multiple inks means users only have to replace each printer ink as it expires individually.
Another problem may be the high cost of replacement Canon iPF9000 ink. The price tag is very steep, so users should only purchase if willing to use remanufactured ink from third party vendors. These versions of the ink cost only about half the price as the OEM products, but they work just as well.
