      I have a canon printer, MP600 that is a few years old.
      I am so please to have found this paper. I have been trying to find photo paper with this quality along with good pricing for years. I can not buy my favorite anymore so that is why I was trying to find a replacement and did not have any luck until I tried this and truthfully I like this even better than the one I have been trying to replace!
      The colors print out sharp, bright, and true to color, and I finally have paper that prints as good as my photo looks on HD. I came back and bought four more packages as I don't want to run out. I also like the weight of the paper. It is the best one I have used.
      The reviews helped me decide and this is the first rating I have done, I like it that much.
      I do color photos of nature and scenic mostly and sell some of my shots at a local gallery. I have no con's.
      I am adding some of my images and the printing comes out just the same, with all the colors bright and beautiful as they are meant to be. I highly recommend this product.

      I used this paper on my Canon Pixima ip4820 printer, and I was not very satisfied with the results I got. First of all I do not like glossy paper, but out of all of the glossy papers I have used this one is the best.

          Comments about Canon Pro Platinum Photo Paper 8.5 x 11" (20 Sheets):

          Having made 3 prints so far I am *really* impressed with this paper. I use a Canon Pixma-100 printer and normally use Canon's Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss. This paper has much deeper blacks, slightly brighter whites and significantly better saturation. I need to generate a custom profile to really see how it behaves but early indications are very promising.

          Works well with Canon ink jet printers. Colors are vivid, paper weight is very good. The paper has a glossy finish, with a fiber paper look.

              I print images from home and use Canon Pro Platinum paper. It is the best paper you can buy. I also have a Canon printer which is not one of the top of line printers. It is a a scanner as well and not made to just print photographs. Using other papers has resulted in acceptable prints but when i use the Pro Platinum and compare the results side by side the Pro Platinum wins hands down. It prints sharper images and true vibrant colors. I cannot fault it in any way.

                      I have tried this paper on my entry level Canon MG8228 (or some number like that) and was pleased with color, depth, texture, and the paper itself (weight etc.). Next I'll try on the Canon PRO-100 which is on its way and which should also yield very good results, and I'm looking forward to try in particular portrait, macro shots, black & white (for black and white the MG I have looks reddish).

                        I have been printing silver gelatin from 8x10 tri-x for the past 30 years. I bet this paper is what Edward Weston would use if he were here today. I think that Canon finally got it right.. a paper that actually works, and works well with their printers. Bravo!

                          I got tired of low end paper to use expensive ink on. About a year ago I tried Pro Platinum and have never gone back. A heavy weight, high gloss paper to make your best work stand out. Problem is, that now it is the only thing I use :). Enjoy.

                                      Use professionally with Canon PIXMA Pro 100. Beautiful prints, the quality of very noticable when compared to other non-Canon products. Most importantly: My clients are blown away by the clarity. It gleems of high quality. Could not be happier! You truly get more than you pay for. Get this product.

                                              Comments about Canon Pro Platinum Photo Paper 8.5 x 11" (20 Sheets):

                                              Used for color printing in a iP100 printer with Canon Chromalife Inks only.
                                              I purchased a pack of Pro Platinum and Glossy II
                                              Canon paper to compare with Wholesale Pro Glossy paper which I usually use -with great results I might add.
                                              The test prints looked identical at first glance,
                                              but by marking the backs and shuffling, they appeared to be in this order:
                                              1.Wholesale Pro Glossy, .55oz per sheet
                                              2.Canon Glossy II, .60oz per sheet
                                              3.Canon Pro Platinum (best).65 oz per sheet
                                              Because of the extremely small differences I'd
                                              suggest using 1. for most jobs and only using 3. for archival prints, or for situations where the prints are sold and packaged in plastic film. Platinum Pro paper is expensive and I think it's main benefit is the archival benefits, best quality, and heavier weight which may make it more durable. I don't see any need to use 2.
                                              Note:I used 2 test photos one a street scene with dog, bicycle, wood house, lot's of small details, and the other a woman's portrait with skin, hair, and gold dress.
