Just unboxed a new Pro-1000 and now in the process of setting up.
I have read posts and reviews about the Pro-1000 using a lot of ink due to the auto-maintenance routines it runs. Some settings are user adjustable, but then there is the risk of nozzle clogging if not routinely cleaned.
Anyone have experience with running a Pro-1000 w. settings to conserve ink, yet w/o being plagued w. ink clogs? Any suggestions for "best practices"? Thanks.

All inkjets are suceptible to the print heads becoming clogged due to lack of use. If used regulary (once a month) or more, this will not be an issue. Another thing that helps is using manufacturers ink, instead of 3rd party. You can achieve good results with 3rd pary ink, but printing is most consistent when you use OEM inks and paper. The Pro-1000 is not a hobbyist grade printer. "Pay to Play" applies here. If you can afford the printer, you should use Canon inks.
Be sure to lkeep a spare MC-20 Maintenance Cartridge on hand.
