GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Silk Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful BW print Quality After using this paper for several weeks I have found it to be one of the best inkjet monochrome papers yet. It retains wonderful tones and dmax with detail though out. I am using this on my Canon Imageprograf printer and just love the results. I don't mind the higher than usual glossy finish for an inkjet paper, but do wish it was a little more in line with the Hahnemuhle and Museo glossy finishes. Another little minus for me is the 270 gsm weight of the paper. It is just a bit flimsy and would be nice to have it at about 290 gsm. Also I don't care for the back of the paper with the appearance of some type of coating. IMHO would be better with just the paper back side w/o any coating. All in all its still a wonderful BW paper and I will keep using it for smaller prints up to 13x19

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent tonal gradation I do primarily monochrome digital printing and have experimented with many different papers. This product produces smooth tonal transitions, especially in the mid and darker tonal ranges. This characteristic, along with a good Dmax, has resulted in some of the better prints that I have been able to produce. However, the surface is somewhat more glossy than I would prefer, and with a weight of 270 gsm, it seems rather fragile. For these reasons, I would hesitate to use it for exhibition prints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes Nice range of D-max to D-min in an additive system. I printed several test prints of B/W targets on a half dozen different papers, from glossy to fine art mat, the Gold Mono Silk was able to hold detail in both highlights and shadows very well. The paper has a nice neutral white color too, my personal preference tends toward a softer surface (think Pt/Pd prints) but some subjects need a gloss. This will be my first choice with those prints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paper and great price I love the freedom of printing my own photos. With ink as expensive as it is, I like to make the most of my prints and, since upgrading/upating my printer(s), I have been experimenting with a number of papers from the top paper producers. Ilford is a great company with really nice products. The Galerie Prestige Gold Mono Silk Paper has been great for printing my black & white photos as well as color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice paper but cold I bought it out of curiosity, I have use the Gold Fibre Silk also for B&W (with a custom profile I made long time ago) and it's probably my favorite paper. So I got the Gold Mono Silk. It's a nice paper but cold (and I have not done a custom profile). For my specific taste I would not buy again based but doesn't mean it's not a nice paper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less than stellar. Not so great. Printed three different images in black and white. Admittedly, the image was ok, but the ink smeared on the edges of the paper. I immediately loaded Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy and printed the same images. The results were excellent, with no smear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paper! I print mostly Black & White images on this paper and the results are great. I've also used it for color photography and am also very pleased with the results. I keep a supply in stock at all times for my clients who want Black & White prints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfect for B&W prints. This paper made great black and white prints using my Epson Stylus Pro 3880. I used the Advanced B&W Photo setting and adjusted the paper configuration for drying time of 2 (0.2 sec).
