I bought one too. I got my rebate back in about 2 weeks. I got the paper too and figured either the paper or the printer was free depending on how I choose look at it. Dye gets bad press because it's not as permanent as pigment but both will outlast wet prints when printed on the correct types of paper, and dye, I think, looks better than pigment in many cases.
This is the first time I have printed digital B&W and I'm considering closing my darkroom. I printed B&W on Ilford Gold Mono and Canson Platine and was very pleased with both.
I have also used Canon Pro luster which I like very much except the surface degrades sharpness lightly, Ilford Smooth Gloss which I also like, Canson super glossy which is beautiful except for the mirror finish, Harman Glossy FB (nice), Canson Baryta (a little dull but still nice), Ilford Gold Fiber Silk (nice) and probably some others I have forgotten. Profiles have been easy to find, Canson, Red River, Ilford and Hannemuhle all have profiles available. The Pro 100 is a great choice for the money. ENJOY!!
