  • It would not surprise me if Canon USA got it wrong. OTOH, it would not shock me if somebody compiled the internal spreadsheet with the assumption that that specification had carried over from the ...
  • You can click on the profile comparison plot and drag it around to change the views. Enlargement is controlled with the scroll wheel on the mouse.
  • I don't think I follow you. My home router connects at various current times to my desktop, four different laptops, two tablets, five smartphones, a Roku, a Blu Ray player, a Switch, a laser ...
  • Currently I'm running Norton LifeLock AntiVirus 22.20.4.57. AntiVirus, Smart Firewall, and Auto-Protect seems to be in effect. I do not run the extra browser or e-mail or whatever security because ...
  • Replied in There for me too
    Same on my computer--although until testing it just now, I hadn't fired up IE in years . I wonder whether this is a case where computers that were originally W10 don't have it, but older computers ...
  • Yes, I admit, I'm guilty of that. I haven't logged into my router in years. It is getting pretty old, and I wonder whether I should replace it. OTOH, our various computers and devices don't share ...
  • IMO your slight misstatement is really the key: what CR reports are not "their opinions on things like auto reliability", but instead the data they have collected from CU members and analyzed on ...
  • You previously wrote: Yes indeed--IMO ICCView.de is a very useful (and free!) tool for comparing ICC profiles. For my main purposes, it only has two significant limitations: (1) it does not work ...
  • At least as of right now, Canon U.S.A. and Canon U.K. disagree with each other on one specification about which I'm curious--why below. But Canon U.K. says that like the Pro-10, the Pro-300 prints ...
  • I agree--which is why upon further reflection I now think it will be something like: * July 31 - current Canon $300 rebate on the Pro-1000 ends, no new rebate appears, and the net price climbs from ...
  • To be clear, I can't see Canon stopping production on the Pro-100 now, except maybe temporarily to meet initial demand for the Pro-300. I think: (1) there's a good-size market of people who would ...
  • You're welcome, and glad you like. Yes, that to me is the biggest reason why the Pro-300 is a Pro-10 Mk. II instead of a mini-Pro-1000. With some papers it may not matter much, but I bet with other ...
  • I'd say it's a minor problem. The ideal approach is for the printer driver to allow you to add new media types, supplied by paper manufacturers and/or user-created. However, the large majority of ...
  • Or, IMO at least as likely given Epson's offerings and prices, a reduction or elimination of the Pro-1000 rebates. Maybe--if you can eliminate the 30mm art paper margins and sell it starting at ...
  • Agreed, that strikes me as the most logical approach / conclusion. I think an interesting question is whether Canon is using a new matte black or some other approach to increasing matte black ...
  • Yes, but if you get a new-in-box P700, then you can track the area printed from new until the first ink change is required, and until the, say, fourth or last is required, and report that. The P600 ...
  • I basically agree with all of that except what I took from your tone--did I misunderstand you?--as a less-than-enthusiastic response to the denser inks. I can't imagine that denser blacks are ...
  • Maybe Canon is right. The Pro-300's main competitor, the Epson P700, is $799 and reportedly includes so little ink that very soon after purchase the user will have to spend another $370 for a full ...
  • I strongly suspect the Pro-10 is already out of production, and at least once existing stocks are sold, it will be officially discontinued. I can't see Canon producing two printers so similar to ...
  • Given how much better Epson ink tests out in all published scientific testing* compared to any of the third-party alternatives, and how it allows printing at prices comparable to what service-made ...
