Canon PGI-9PC PhotoCyan Ink Disco'd?!? (PIXMA PRO9500)
Jan 4, 2012

I have been using a PIXMA PRO9500 for some time - and still plan on using it for small prints. I noticed when ordering ink today that a number of suppliers showed that the PhotoCyan cartridge was disco'd as of Dec. 2nd. I can assume a number reasons why...all not necessarily good. Does anyone have any real hard information on this move? I would appreciate feedback. Thanks, Brandt

I buy from B&H and they are showing it on their website, as does Canon. Who is showing it as discontinued?

Not available at all from Staples which would usually show special order avail....and the CDW site says "This product was discontinued as of Friday, December 02, 2011. Call for availability." J&R site says 'Limited quantity available...while supplies last"

always a good price with free shipping.

I doubt that Canon would not have ink carts for this printer for many years to come. The 9500 is still in production at this time.

You can actually buy a new Pro9500 with free shipping for $150 after the $300 rebate and that would be the cost of 10 new cartridges which do come with the new printer.

You can also refill the OEM carts with some great 3rd party ink available

That is scary!

Atlex, Adorama, and Red River Paper are still carrying it. Amazon is carrying the whole set (still better priced at B&H).

I'm not really near a Staples so I generally have to buy online. My local office supply store only carries the 5 basic color set.

I can't understand how they can discontinue a color. Maybe we should stock up just in case.

My error on that 9500 price

it's $449 after the rebate so not the value of a set of carts.
