Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Over the years I have tried other papers but have always come back to Canon and with this 400 pack it is an excellent value. Crisp and beautiful colors, quick drying, smudge resistant. Can't speak to the longevity since Iv'e only used it for a few years,(since it was released), but the prints from a few years ago show no deterioration. I offer customers a choice of my Canon home prints or lab prints, and after I show them a comparison of prints and prices, they usually prefer the Canon prints. Other high quality papers do work Ilford, Moab, etc. You just have to make sure to use their paper profiles. I've learned to keep it simple and use Canon inks and papers for my Canon printers. The printers all come with the profiles for the various Canon papers. I only use GENUINE Canon inks,( I tried those cheaper ones, had to eventually replace print heads and PHOTO prints were not of the same quality). I don't have thousand dollar monitors, but do calibrate my monitors with a quality calibrator.which is an important factor in the final print. The other Canon papers work great for different looks and finishes. MP610, 620, MX700, MG6220, MG8120, PRO 9500 MKll. The Crutchfield service was excellent and shipping was fast and free to Hawaii. Product was well packaged.
