Great All-Purpose Printer

By Heather from Portland, OR on 09/18/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Prints good quality prints. Does not do well with thicker paper. Not the best if you want really high-quality prints, but good quality for the price.

Epson Artisan 1430

By MyPhotoPuzzles from Carlisle, KY on 09/10/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had wonderful experiences with this printer. Every time I turn it on it prints beautiful photographs. The print cartridges have lasted much longer than I had expected. I have found that the paper that produces the nicest photos is Premium and Ultra Premium Glossy. I have had decent results with Matte, and have not used satin finishes yet. I worried a little before purchasing it because of a couple of bad reviews, but mine has been wonderful. I recommend this printer for anyone who is tired of dealing with on-line printing services.

Outstanding Prints!!!

By Anonymous from Baltimore, MD on 09/07/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After 1000's of prints, over 8+ yrs.(!!), my PHOTO R340 Printer, ejected its last print. I've wanted a 'large format' printer, for a while, and the Artisan 1430, is the perfect replacement. Test prints after set-up, were "outstanding"! If you're looking for a 'large format' printer, the Artisan 1430, will not disappoint!

3 years old and still rocking!

By Bazzbozz from Buffalo, NY, USA on 08/26/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yes, this is my oldest running printer, and I print a lot of CD's for my band to practice new songs from. Photos come out fantastic, poster size are awesome for advertising the band, gotten loads of compliments on the quality! Do I recommend this printer, you bet I do. Ink is a little pricy, but well worth it considering the quality of prints and CD coloring. A real workhorse for the price!!!

Great machine for the price

By moodysd0 from Saratoga county New York on 08/22/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The artisan 1430 is an excellent printer, whose capabilities far exceed the price of the machine. Prints wonderful photos. You do not go broke in the process, everything you require to print are all very reasonable in cost. I am a high volume printer my cost has dropped very much since using this machine. Thanks Epson for a wonderful product.

I was looking to replace my R300 Epson it died, so I just went on line and found this one which prints CD"S and DVD'S that's what I had, I received the box and I was sup priced of this big box, I did not released that I order a Big Format Printer. But it works great with my 13x19 inch poster boards for printing Inspirational saying for the church, works great, the CD's look better then before once the ink dries, made a good mistake. Great Printer.

Great workhorse for transparency printing

By wearthefund from Fort Myers, FL on 08/11/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just had my old artisan 1430 quit out due to necessary servicing, and immediately bought another. For my needs of printing all black on transparency film, it worked great and got my business started (almost 3 years old today). I would recommend cleaning the heads almost everyday to keep them fresh, and a consistent wipe down or cover cloth when not using as they can become difficult to clean if left out.

New printer

By Jim C from Wichita, KS on 08/04/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just opened the box and extracted my new printer. Set the unit up wirelessly with no previous set up experience and it was a cinch. Ran a couple of test prints, one just black and white lettering and another a portrait of my beautiful wife. Both came out splendedly. Couldn't be more pleased. Whole thing was about twenty minutes.

Best printer ever!

By scottpal from Montague, Michigan on 07/14/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just purchased and set up my Artisan 1430 printer, and I couldn't be happier. The set up went flawlessly, which is unusual in itself judging on my previous experience with other brand printers. Software installation was easy also. Once it was set up and ready, I tried a photo of a car I had shot at a recent car show in 13 x 19 size. As it rolled out of the printer, I fell in love! The colors were spot on, and the resolution was just like on my monitor. If you are seeking a reasonably priced large format printer with ease of use and great performance, look no further.

Angry

By Jim from Indiana on 07/09/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Just received second unit. Has the same exact fault as the first one. Photo files are from three different Nikon cameras and two different editing programs, but the printer still has the same fault. Will try and get a full refund and start shopping all over again. Has anyone heard of the term "quality control?"

A Honey of a Printer

By SrJM from Detroit area on 06/29/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As the title says... For people who use a variety of papers and a mixture of images and text, this is the ideal printer. It also does an extraordinary job on photos. It is very, very versatile and has a variety of settings. We loved our R2000 photo printer, but for our purposes this is much better. The price does not reflect its quality. It is much, much better than you would expect for a printer of this price. THANK YOU EPSON!

Artisan 1430

By Terry from Okanogan, Washington on 06/29/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this refurb unit for some time now and must say the prints are very good and the ink last much longer than privious Epson printers. I print a lot of CD/DVd labels and the ink has lasted plus I get very fine prints.

Artisan 1430

By ghge from Richland Center, WI on 06/23/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the Artisan 1430 to replace a Stylus 1400 I've used for 5 years. I'm a screenprinter and need a printer that will print opaque black ink on 13" x 19" film for burning screens. Our films are archived so it's important the ink holds up over time (years). The Stylus was a great printer that printed thousands of pieces of film and I'm hoping the Artisan will be the same. So far, so good. Very opaque printing and excellent halftones.

Perfection

By MSKT Photography from Lynnwood, WA on 06/13/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have always loved Epson and the high quality of each print that is produced, but this printer has outshined all of them. I am totally impressed at the color which is the same as what I see on my monitor. I did not have to calibrate though I am sure some do. It is quick, quiet, and does not take up so much space. I highly recommend this printer and also recommend that you do not listen to the negative comments posted. The ink tanks that came with the computer were completely full, snapped right in and gave me professional quality prints.

Epson Printers

By DJ from Pomona Park, FL on 06/07/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had an Epson 1400 printer for many years. I used to print local high school sports for Football, Baseball, Basketball, Tennis, and Volleyball. I printed thousands and thousands of high quality photos and posters for individual athletes and team photos. Everything was great, but my printer finally wore out. The R1430 seemed like the logical replacement. I now do photos and posters for family members. Epson is the best.

Epson1430 loses one color after 3 months light use

By HW from San Francisco, CA on 06/04/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had many wide format printers over the years but never had one that had an issue within the first 3 months - one of the colors (yellow) just vanished and doesn't want to function anymore despite high quality genuine Epson inks used, cleaning attempts, etc. The color and gray/black quality of the prints is good, maybe still better than most other printers out there, but it seems the 1400 and 1430 printers are not that reliable, as this is my 4th in less than 2 years, with moderate use, in a temperature controlled, very clean environment. So save your warrantees and receipts!

Printer is a complete waste of money

By Anonymous from Undisclosed on 05/13/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Had an Epson 1400 before this that bled ink occasionally. It was wasteful ink wise but usable. This one does it constantly. Ink cost is ridiculous if you have to printer 4 or 5 times to get a decent print. Cannot use it for reproducing my art. It is going in the garbage soon. Never buy one of these.

The little printer that could!

By The Gallery from Tarentum,PA on 04/25/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We have been using the predecessor of this model(...the 1400) for the past six years. This configuration is the most dependable, reliable printer we have ever used. They are used hard and consistently produce excellent quality 13 x 19 prints on a wide variety of papers. We currently have 2 1430s and 1 1400 hard at work doing photography and graphic design and could not be more pleased.

This printer makes me want to cry

By Taeleyn from Montana, USA on 04/06/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am a photography student and I purchased this printer for my classes. So far, I have to say that I am not impressed. No matter what I do, my prints come out dark, dull and lifeless. I always have streaks, blotches and lines all over my prints. I have tried everything I can think of. I am heartbroken, I was really looking forward to using this printer and I cannot afford a replacement. The ink is pricey and I go through way too much of it trying to get my images to print the way I want them to. I am kicking myself for buying such a crummy printer.

R1430 Printer Review

By Anonymous from Macon, Ga on 03/25/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am highly familiar with Epson printers. I recently decided to start doing prints again for a portfolio. Out of the box, pretty straightforward including a full set of tanks. Wi-Fi was easy via the software included with the printer. I shoot a 3:2 aspect ratio and print 4x6, 8x12 (9x13 paper), 12x18 (13x19 paper) prints. I use professional photo high grade paper versus consumer store photo paper. I use Lightroom as my print source. The printer features control (Epson software) are easy to use with specific settings for output (such as 2880 x 1440 dpi). Some ICC profiles are a little tricky to use as output did not match monitor calibration. However, a second print using Epson print control proved exceptional output. A 13 x 19 print yielding a 12 x 18 print with a 1/4 inch matt border takes about a half hour per print. Ink flow is vastly improved over the R300 from years ago yielding more prints per tank set. Overall, I love the printer! Metallic prints are exceptional!

Great printer...

By twdman from Ohio on 03/25/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had several Epson printers over the years and the Artisan 1430 is another great printer. I use it for a variety of color prints and for DVD labels. The DVD labels are a higher quality print than previous printers I owned. The color quality of the photos and cover sheets I make are also very good. I have had the stylus photo R800 and the R300 in the past, and this printer lives up to the quality of prints I have grown accustom to. The other nice feature of this printer is the larger paper size it will handle.

New Artisan Printer User

By Mukwah from West Simsbury, CT on 03/05/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After using many other Epson printers, including a 3600 large format (which was used for almost 11 years, until it finally "Gave up the Ghost"). After some research and with trepidation bought the Artisan 1430 -Wow what results! I've printed photos from 4"x6", up to 11" x 17" all without a problem. Everyone of the prints has been excellent! I have also printed out several large 13 " x 19" POP jobs and was pleasantly surprised at their quality - I used a Glossy 24# stock that that the printer treated a photo-quality and gave me super results. If this level of quality keeps up I'll probably purchase several more Artisan printers. Epson, its a Homerun!

Great Value Photo Ptinter

By Aerobat from Imperial County, CA on 02/21/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer family and inks are a great value for professional quality photo prints. I moved to this from a 1400 which lasted 8 years before the rollers hardened and I started to have feed errors. It was nice to move over to the 1430 and still use the ink inventory I had in stock rather than have to start building my ink reserve inventory all over again.

Clueless on what to do with it!

By JustMyOpinion1977 from Huntley, IL on 01/15/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer in hopes to print on heat press vinyl but the program (WinPC Sign Pro) is useless with it. It has printed maybe 5 sheets of paper for me off Word but the ink made such a mess that it was taken apart (like when you purchase it) and moved to a stand untouched. Two years later it still sits without purpose. Any suggestions? I tried to sell it with zero bites.

Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer

By Arthur from Charleston, SC on 01/14/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased the Artisan Printer and after five months of light use it will no longer print correctly on the first print. If they printer has not been used for more than 24 hours then it takes the printer a few prints before the colors are correct. It shouldn't need to warm up. It should print correctly the first time without making me half to waste ink cleaning the print heads every day.

Excellent machine

By Sallycat from Oak Ridge, TN on 01/09/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I do a lot of layouts for doing machine embroidery and this machine is great at printing of these designs. Photo printing is excellent. My husband has always wanted the option of printing photos larger than 8 X 11 and is now able to do that without losing any of the quality.

Artisan indeed!

By Nanoula from Washington State on 01/09/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got this printer because I owned a predecessor, the Stylus 1400. That printer gave up after 7 years of hard work, and I replaced it with this one, which uses the same ink cartridges; an advantage, because I was used to the colors and durability. So far I have been printing "test" files--printouts of things in my files, just to see what the new printer will do. So far, I am very pleased.

A great quality Printer

By Richard from Murray, Utah on 01/01/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an excellent printer. It is a bit slow in printing CD/DVD labels but does a nice job. I've printed thousands of pages and labels with very few problems. The Wi-Fi connection feature is very handy. Once in a while I've had to reboot the Wi-Fi and the printer but that's not necessarily the printer's fault. It was easy to setup on my Mac and accessible from other computers on the same Wi-Fi including Windows computers. It's downside is the considerable cost of ink. Haven't used it yet for wide format printing but the feed mechanism seems to work flawlessly for the various sizes and thicknesses I've fed it.

A five star printer

By BillHansen from central NY state on 12/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The second sample of this printer which I received prints art photos to perfection. Color rendition using the pre-made Epson profiles is really identical to their appearance on my calibrated LCD monitor. I don't think I could do better with a custom printer profile - and I'm known as a very picky person! Setup is very quick, and easy. Just remember that you'll need a USB cable - male A to male B type. That's not supplied, and it should be. The first sample of the printer I received was so far out of spec that I couldn't get acceptable prints from it, even after custom profiles were made. Note again that the second sample was perfect, right out of the box. As with any complex product, quality control can't be 100% perfect. I was just unlucky.

Hasn't worked properly since I bought it.

However, now the wi-fi has decided to not work and I can't print anything! I've only had this for a few months and I truly either want a refund or exchange for one that works. I've always used Epson I'm so disappointed & stressed & out of luck to get work done I need to do?

Artisan 1430

By bob-m from Stratford ,ct on 12/29/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to set up. Great quality photos.If you do your own large prints this is a great machine. 13 X 19 came out great. Works well on presentation paper. The only draw back for me is you are limited as fare as print media. Only photo and presentation paper are recomended. Wanted to try canvas prints but don't know how well that will work with the Claria ink. other than that I like the results.

Beautiful prints, expensive ink

By tccharleston from Charleston, SC on 12/27/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the photos and prints I have made in the first few days I've owned my printer. Paper feeds perfectly. The only problem is the ink. I have printed only six 13" x 19" photos. And the yellow, light cyan and light magenta are already 1/3 used. I was expecting a greater yield from the printer based on the reviews I had read. And since the inks are so expensive through Epson, I am seriously considering using compatible inks that are 90% cheaper. Even though I know the quality won't be as good.

Epson Artisan 1430

This is my 2nd Artisan 1430 printer. It's as wonderful as the last one which wore out after massive usage printing cards, photos, and whatever else was necessary. The colors and quality of printing are always consistently excellent of my artwork on both greeting cards and larger prints. I would absolutely buy this again.

Good value for large prints

By ancientlore from Vienna, VA on 12/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Printer setup went very smooth. The Epson software worked fine on Mac and PC. The photo quality is more detailed than other printers I have used, and I love being able to print large photos. 13x19 picture frames are also becoming more common. This might be the best value in a large photo printer. Although large, it isn't too deep so it fits nicely on a table or counter.

Just What I was Looking For!

By Scrapper Beth from Tulsa. OK on 12/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This wide format printer is just what I was looking for! I am a scrapbooker and card maker and had previously had another Epson wide format printer which I had been missing. The installation was very simply. I was able to do it wirelessly within less than 30 minutes. The colors are great for printing out paper projects. Haven't tried to print any photos yet but I am sure it will be as good as my previous Epson printer was.

Epson Artisan 1430

By jimmiracer from Rancho Dominguez, CA. on 12/15/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have owned 2 Epson 1200 printers in the past and the print quality on this model is as great as expected. I've noticed an odd condition on at least one of the feed nozzles that the ink cartridges fit on; it is crooked and NOT straight up. This makes it difficult to set the ink cartridge securely in place (pops up). This causes leaking and error condition; sometimes very aggravating.

won't work on network

By Patrick from Undisclosed on 12/12/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

When we buy a printer, we shouldn't have to know how to change or control "ports" on our computers. This unit won't work with my network because my computer uses a port for wi-fi that the printer "doesn't support". That's all the info given -- nothing about what ports it does support, what a port is, and whether it's possible and safe to change the port. Why can't the printer support wi-fi regardless of port? If I'd known it wouldn't work as advertised, as a network printer, I would never have bought it, even tho I used to be a user and supporter of Epson.

Educate yourself on how to use printer driver

By Karen J. from Columbia, MO on 12/07/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Set up went well with printer and wireless. Ink priming was another issue... could not get printer head to center after following set up instructions so that I could open the door to printer head. Finally had to manually move it into place which the printer DID NOT like. Turned printer back on and off, reinstalling cartridges and finally got it to prime. Also, you have to set up the Epson iprint app on your iphone in order to use the printer wirelessly from apple devices. The iprint app is so limited, you can't change paper choices, it only defaults to premium glossy. (I use luster). There are some decent paper profiles in the software, but they are not available on the app. Photos printed using the installed driver look bright and color correct. (Those who have written reviews saying that their prints turn out bad are clearly not versed in how to set the printer settings when the driver opens.) It gives very good prints for the money and I will use this as my back up color printer quite easily.

Bottom Line:

I love the clarity & crispness I get from this printer. It's everything it said it would be...only "con" is sometimes the paper feed is a bit grabby when using smaller sized papers. Easy fix = make sure it's loaded full so there's less wiggle room. Other than that, it's a dream come true for this price point!

Excellent printer for the price

By Melphoto from Elkhart, IN on 11/15/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A month ago my trusty R260 died in the middle of a print job and I needed a new printer now! I went of to my local supply store and this was the only photo printer they had in stock so I grabbed it, went home and set it up. After a quick profile adjustment I was back in business. This printer has exceeded my expectations. It does a much better job than the R260 and seems to use less ink in the process. The prints are clean and sharp with excellent color reproduction. I have done both 8.5 x 11 prints and DVDs and have had no problems with material handling. All in all I would definitely recommended this printer as a good choice for a no nonsense get the job done piece of equipment.

Mainly installation & 1st print

By montemac from Richmond, Va. on 11/14/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My WF-1100 died after 5 yrs due to paper jam. Bought Epson WF-7110-grinding gears during install. Sent back, bought Artisan 1430, installed perfectly, 1st print (bw) was great. Epson said WF-7110 was replacement for WF-1100, but WF-7110 was massive, had special paper drawers, and was B on A, (Broke on Arrival) but Epson graciously provided a prepaid return label. The Artisan 1430, while maybe made for much finer work than the WF-1100, is almost exactly like it, but has 6 ink cartridges instead of 4. Looks like a great fit for me, although I did not really need the expertness of its photo printing.

Epson Artisan 1430, great printer!

By papajackd from Oklahoma City, OK on 11/10/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer to replace my old Artisan 50 which was several years old. The set up was very easy, even on my android phone. The print quality is great on both color prints and documents. I have yet to try the 13 X 19 size paper, but everything I printed up to 8 1/2 X 11 is great. I printed on a CD yesterday for my grandson and it came out dry, ready to use and looking like a factory printed label.

High Quality Printing at Outstanding Value

By montrose1504 from Philadelphia, PA on 11/06/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the Artisan 1430 in March, 2014 and have now used it for over 8 months. My primary uses are for restoration and high enlargement of antique monochrome photographs, enlargement of high resolution astronomy photographs, and production and enlargement of 3D anaglyph photographs. For these photos I use only Best Photo settings at Photo RPM (Max dpi), Adobe RGB, Gamma 2.2, and Ultra Premium Epson paper. My prints are of outstanding quality, especially considering the difficult nature of reproducing some of them. My other prints are of color Text and Image subjects using plain paper with normal print quality settings. The printer settings are comprehensive and easy to use, and allow saving your custom color management profiles for future use. I have experienced no mechanical problems like paper jams, feed problems, or any others. My ink usage is reasonable considering that I use the highest quality settings and paper for my photo projects. I have printed 21 13x19 photos, 6 11.7x16.5 photos, 25 8.5x11 photos, 107 4x5 photos, and 225 8.5x11 text and image prints. I have used 14 cartridges, the highest usage being light cyan and light magenta, probably because of my subject material. I have bought all Epson paper and ink on sale at 15% to 40% discount with free shipping. My suggestion for print quality and ink conservation is to use only Epson paper, as recommended. I initially started test printing on leftover 4x5 premium paper from my previous printer, and was disappointed that the black in all prints was actually a dark muddy brown, obviously ruinous to an antique photo reproduction. I found the same issue with retail store brand 13x19 premium photo paper. I switched to all Epson paper and the problem disappeared completely. I have found the color is an exact representation of the original in all cases. My recommendation for ink conservation is to not turn off the printer so the cartridges do not need to be primed each time that the printer is used. My printer has been on since purchase. Another suggestion is to use the printer regularly, for the same reason. I try to print at least one 4x5 every week or two, to keep the ink flowing. One further suggestion is to always check the Print Preview option on the Advanced properties tab. I have found that occasionally my print setting was not what I had intended, and the preview lets you check everything before you print. It's also a good idea to print a test 4x5 to check the appearance before printing an enlargement. I often print several of these to see the affects of different settings. The print speed is also very acceptable even for 13x19 ultra high resolution enlargements. The wireless capability makes it possible to print from any of your devices. I would highly recommend this printer as an outstanding value for the high quality you receive in your prints.

By CraftyLady from Nebraska on 11/05/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my 2nd 1400 series printer-wore the other one out over 6 years. Love the 13 x 19-inch printing size. Love the 5 color cartridges. Love the new Wi-Fi ability. Love the ease of paper loading and replacing ink cartridges. Love new size of paper holder rack and larger size of paper print out tray. Very easy to use. Wish it had a smaller profile so I could take it to scrapbooking events with me. I create my 12 x 12-inch scrapbooking pages both for journaling and photographs. Also use it in my other crafting areas. Keep up the good work Epson.

Great replacement for my 1400

By Beret from Washington on 10/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I swore to never give up my 1400 until they pried my petrified fingers from the frozen mouse but the day finally came and given my resistance I couldn't be happier. One feature I had not used before was Epson CD print. The version that came with this machine is much nicer than the version with the 1400. Before CD labels looked like cartoons. Currently some very professional templates are available. By using a transparent background on Ivory stock I use a reasonable amount of ink. Great printer for me (semipro). I would definitely recommend as a great price performer

By PQ Design from St. Louis, MO on 10/06/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Since 2004 we've purchased this class of 13x19 printer. The 1430 performs just as well as the others we have had in the past. It's a great workhorse for proofing tabloid extra with crops and bleed. And good enough for printing photos in a pinch. For the money, it does exactly what it's supposed to do.

horrible prints on anything but premium photopaper

I need to print a lot on tabloid size paper so I bought this printer since it was one of the few wide format printers I could afford.

Great product... BUT!!!

By kimbo from New York, NY on 09/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Would have given this product Four Stars, but for the maddenly SMALL ink capacity. When you print proof sheets like I do, you're going to be replacing the (expensive) in cartridges so fast that you can cancel you gym membership!! If this machine only had larger ink cartridges had larger ink capacity, it would be PERFECT. But as you know, this is precisely how printer manufacturers make their money" by selling expensive ink cartridges. The fact is, Epson should give you the machine FOR FREE, for this precise reason. I tried the next machine up for it's HUGE ink capacity, but the machine was TEN TIMES SLOWER to print than the 1430, and cost nearly as much as a used car. To help my bottom line, I'm just going to buy those refilled ink cartridges, they work just as well, and don't cost you an arm and a leg.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer so I would be able to print larger sizes as well as heavier card stock and a variety of paper weights. So far it works great on heavier card stock. I haven't tried everything I want to yet, but what I have tried (100 lb card stock, small 2x3 envelopes, 80 lb card stock) and it all works just fine. There are a few tricks - not feeding too much paper in at a time, or having just the right amount, but I am pleased with the results.

By unclemikey from Richmond VA on 09/10/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After working with another printer for over a year and becoming frustrated with its problems I was searching for a printer that would produce the smaller prints I needed for my side line business of kids sports and parties. The Epson 1430 works so well that I've even been printing 11x14 with great results. I don't expect archival quality but its hard to tell the difference. At the cost of some of Epsons higher end pigment ink printers I would not be able to recover costs of printing for what I needed. Only draw back as I see is with B & W printing. I'm considering obtaining another 1430 and converting it to dedicated black and white printer. Very easy set up and I use it wired to my computer for fast quality printing when I need it.

Paper/Cancel and Ink lights keep flashing

By Rick from Silver Spring, MD on 09/01/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This printer has been nothing but a headache since purchasing. The paper/cancel and ink lights keep flashing indicating error. I reinstalled drivers as recommended, but nothing I do, as recommended by Epson, seems to work. I am returning this printer and will certainly tell my friends not to buy this printer.

Artison 1430

By Papabear from New Port Richey FL. on 09/01/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer to make larger prints than 8x10. I found that it is an awesome color printer and your papers are great also. On the other hand this printer keeps hanging up for some reason. I have to keep unplugging the unit and plugging it in over and over again before it will print it again.

Excellent professional quality printer

By Anonymous from San Jose, CA on 09/01/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have had and used Epson printers for several years as my work is in the professional category. Previous printers were the Epson Stylus 840, Epson stylus 1400 and now the Epson Artisan 1430. The print quality on the Artisan 1430 is as expected from a great machine. However, after removing the 1400 program from my files, residual parts of the 1400 program remain and can't be removed causing Artisan 1430 printer program to open on the old 1400 when attempting to print. Have to select Artisan1430 from selection box. Other than this problem, the Epson Artisan 1430 is an excellent printer.

Good replacement for my Photo stylus 1400

By simonartguy from Crockett, CA on 08/22/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice. it prints well, pretty much like all the previous Epson products I've had. Nice that it took the same cartridges as the 1400. (I had just bought 5 of the 6 needed) All in all, pretty happy with it. Does not seem to like less than "premium" everyday paper. I t bent, folded and mutilated 20# stock from another manufacturer, but prints fine on 28# "color copy digital" stock. As usual and expected it prnts great on photo paper.

Excellent Photo Printer

By the2higgs from Spring Hill, Fl on 08/19/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had the Epson Work Force 1100 & loved it! It finally gave up (I do a ton of 12x12 scrapbook printing). It was a nightmare to find another printer that was a "true" 12x12 printer. They were all "up to 13x19" which you would think would work... not. After many of hours of searching, my husband finally found the Epson Artisan 1430. It is awesome! The photos are crisp & brilliant in color. I would advise all scrap bookers & anyone needing a 12x12 printer to buy this one. It was very reasonably priced.

Easy to use, with great results. The price was right, the supplies that came with the 1430 were the best. Thank you!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Our company purchased the Artisan 1430 to replace our "dead" Stylus Photo 1400. This new machine is actually a lot quieter than it's predecessor. The print quality is fantastic and the speed is Great. Not really a super fast printer, but it gets our jobs out in a timely manner.

perfect for my needs. love it.

By youngwill from Western New York on 07/11/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was given this printer as a gift off a wish list and have started a business selling prints of my original paintings using it. The color, quality, and consistency allows for me to have a little, part-time cottage industry printing orders on-demand. I love it. In my freelance life, when I needed to do higher end presentations, I could enlarge my designs considerably for impact and mount the paper easily. I don't use it for routine printouts, only for high-impact stuff. I haven't had to purchase inks yet, but let's hope that my sales offset the cost of the ink and paper! Overall, I love this printer. Boom!

Printer has a brain

By Cameranut from Stony Point, NC on 07/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It took a while for me to try this printer because I wanted to print only exceptional photos worthy of printing, ink cost, etc. I must say this printer printed out results that were far superior to what I viewed on my monitor. Results were sharp, clear & dazzling. This is not a copier & it doesn't fax; strictly a very high quality photo printer. I will be trying the 13" by 19" paper soon. Yes, I would recommend this printer. Mine even had Photoshop Elements 10 included.

The 1430 ROCKS

By Larry from Dover DE on 07/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For its price, this printer in a word is... FANTASTIC. I've used Epson products for 20 plus years and when I decided to buy a wide format printer it had to be an Epson I could afford. Actually it's a printer most people can afford. And the results are always amazing. The colors are vibrant, rich and true. The ability to change an ink cartridge at the point it runs out (even during printing) is wonderful. I highly recommend this printer to to anyone who wants to print larger photos that will catch your eye. It will print everything else too.

Great Performance

By Dee W. from Colorado on 07/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After having used the Artisan 1430 printer for a couple of months, I'm very happy with it. I always used another brand of printers, and have had trouble feeding heavier card stock and envelopes, and this printer solves that problem. I think that the way the paper feeds from back to front without having to turn around is why it is so much better. Our daughter is a graphic designer and uses Epson printers in her work and wouldn't use any other brand, which is a good enough recommendation for me. The photos I've printed have been beautiful, and I would highly recommend this printer. It is quite large and doesn't have a Fax, but it's just what I wanted, since I can print on larger paper and it does a great job.

Very Good Printer

By Jim from Pittsfield, MA on 07/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm very pleased with the print quality from the Epson 1430, naturally, because of printing larger prints the ink goes quickly but not any more so than any other printer. It's not the fastest printer on the market but the print speed is reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This has been a great printer so far. The colors are vibrant (when you choose the correct settings paired with the correct paper), and I usually have no smearing (except sometimes when the paper is too thick; A7 envelopes I mount to a letter size paper to print on) I think the rollers touch which is the culprit. No real complaints except for that. Happy customer overall.

Excellence personified

By copycat from Pauls Valley, OK on 07/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am almost two years into ownership of the 1430 printer, and have only highest praise for it. I am a very active semi-professional photographer, and print 99% of my displayed work. I have found this printer to be flawless, in output and reliability. I am currently weighing the options on the next size upgrade, and it most certainly will be an Epson. My only wish would be for a larger selection of higher end papers, such as a 140# watercolor, in 13"x14", and perhaps some very good "artist canvas look paper" in 13" x 19". I do very little portrait (people) work, but I really like the images of old restored homes on nice paper. Just my wish... I have, and will continue to, recommend any and all lines of Epson Printing equipment. I also have , and thoroughly enjoy, an Epson Overhead Projector. All in all, I must consider myself one happy camper with all the Epson products I have used. Total confidence in ANY equipment in todays world is almost non-existent, but I have that feeling with my Epson Artisan 1430 printer.

Ink

By Anonymous from Wisconsin on 07/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The cartridges are small. Printing large format with little cartridges takes a lot of Ink which is expensive. I also have a larger Epson but it is not wireless or WIFI connected which makes the 1430 the printer of choice when doing most of my daily home and business printing. The color prints look good coming off this printer.

Finally!!!!

By Pats Ebay from St Petersburg, FL on 07/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After much research and store searching, I found a printer that is perfect for me. Actually I was in one store and I explained my needs to a representative. He knew exactly what I wanted and proceeded to send me to a different store that carried this printer. I needed a printer that I could feed the paper through the back instead of going around a roller. I print professional pictures on very thick photo paper and this printer works perfectly every time. It is also very quiet -- so quiet that I frequently check to make sure it is working. It is also fast and the quality of output can't be any better. It uses ink very quickly, and sometimes (not very often) the ink leaves streaks across some of the pictures. I definitely recommend this printer.

By The Burk from Montauk, New York on 07/08/2014

The Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer is an outstanding printer. I've done 1000's of 8 1/2 x 11 prints and some 13x19 prints on it with fine results on every print.

NEVER change router or SSID or wireless key.

By Ken from Las Vegas, NV on 06/23/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Epson provides no method to change your wireless password or SSID with this printer. If you change your router/modem or change your SSID or your wireless key, the printer stops working and there is no way to get it to connect again unless you reinstall the drivers and go through the entire printer setup process again! You cannot access the SSID or wireless key settings from any menu or from any of the printer properties menus. What a waste of time.

Incredible printer for the price. Just purchased last night. Printed 20 yes twenty 13x19 photo prints with the ink that came in box. The last print is as vivid as the very first print.

Best Printer yet

By pixelette from san antonio Tx on 06/13/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had two other Epson printers. I do illustrations, cards, party decorations. I was thinking about trying out new printers because the 837 wasn't doing well with my 110 lb cardstock. I decided on the 1430, there only being one left in my city it was fate! It has a top feeder, takes the 110 paper like nothing, prints my invites in large numbers. It fixed things I was not so happy with in the 837. I love epson and will probably keep going with their printers as I sale more and more.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Artisan 1430 Printer is great and I have recommended it to our photography club members. It gets colors correctly 99+% of time much better than the pigment printers and works on more surfaces. I would buy a 17inch wide printer in a heart beat if it was as good as the 1430. For years I struggled to get colors correct with other printer but with the 1430 it always works and almost never has clogged nozzles that clean quickly. This is after 9 months of use.

Epson 1430

By Bob from Connecticut on 05/31/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The 1430 was a snap to bring on line as a WiFi shared printer. As with other Epson printers the color prints are excellent. We purchased this printer as a CD/DVD printer and the occasional wide format prints. As a CD/DVD printer, we would have to give low marks when compared to previous CD printers made by Epson. The CD tray has to be cleaned after 3 prints for overspray on the caddy. This causes the ink to get on the hands and sides of the CD's. Since the caddy is plastic, the ink does not dry. 5 other Epson models did not have this problem.

I had a Stylus 1400 and loved it but wore it out so I got this one because it was the same, inks in all but it had the Wifi capability so I thought that would be cool. I got it and I haven't skipped a beat. This has the same great quality as the 1400 with an extra added bell and whistle. Everyone in the house with their tablets and laptops can print to this printer with ease. The people at Epson was great also in helping me with the purchase. I would recommend this printer definitely.

WONDERFUL PRINTER FOR QUICK PRINTS

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recently lost two printers a Epson 1800 and M300, they both reached their "END OF LIFE". Replaced them with a R3000 and the 1430. Use the 1430 for quick prints, my 5 year old grandson took a number of photographs today, he told me what needed to be done in "Photoshop". (this area should be darker, can you help focus this area, etc.) Printed them on the 1430.

Epson Artisan 1430

By The Poet from Chicago on 05/03/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Before purchasing this printer I read all about it and I read quite a few reviews on the Artisan 1430, some almost discouraged me from buying. I decided to give it a try anyway, and I must say that I did not have any trouble downloading the software and I had my printer up and running in less than 25 minutes. I am truly delighted with this printer as I am with the other 3 Epson printers I have and use.

Epson Artisan 1430 Printer

By Dell from Lake Placid, NY on 04/13/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a freelance designer I have always used Epson printers so can't compare their performance with any other brands. Color prints are very good, that's the advantage. The downside is that this printer requires frequent ink head cleaning, we all know the ink is expensive. There is frequent white streaking better solved with head cleaning rather than the alignment utility which sometimes makes the problem worse. When trying to print sometimes 2 or 3 blank pages roll out before the printing starts. Sometimes the printer gives a warning that the paper is either unloaded or not correctly loaded. It may take a few attempts taking the paper in and out before the printer will work. These issues can be time consuming. I like the prints when things are working but the next time I need a new printer I will ask other designers for their recommendations.

Excellant Printer

By Happy Artist from High Springs FL on 04/01/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use this printer to make archival prints of my original Oil Paintings which I sell, signed and numbered. I need them to be an exact replica of my original work. It does a beautiful job as long as you use Epson products, (ink & paper). It was easy for me to set it up for wifi and to print what I needed. Although a friend helped with the proper settings for a proper print. He has an older version of this printer and recommended this one. It does use a lot of ink but the prints are amazingly bright and gorgeous.

So far ---just great

By Russ from Bonita Springs, Florida on 04/01/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far I have printed 31- 8 X 10s - 4-11 X 17s & 3 11X 14s with very good results. The set up of the printer was EZ. The print speed is great. The colors are right on. I don't understand some of the negative reviews of the Artisan 1430. So far I have only used the inks that came with the printer so I can't tell how much it will use. I have only had the printer for three weeks but so far I love it. I used my last Epson printer for about 8 years printing 1000's of prints I hope i will do the same with the 1430.

Artisan 1430

By RJG Creations from Arizona on 04/01/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer is a great all-a-round printer for photography and graphic design. The colors are great, the ease of using this printer is great. I owned a 1400 and loved that one also. It is not how you use it, it is what you use it for that makes a difference.

Good service so far.

By Sparkie from Las Vegas, Nevada on 03/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this 1430 to replace my 1400 that stopped pulling paper, had clanking noises. This 1430 is one of the better Epson printers. It has the cd printing which I have to have. The wide format is good when you need it. I have several sheets of 13x19 photo paper so it will come in handy. It does print beautiful photos! With six colors, the colors come out much more true to life. All in all, a very good printer.

Artisan 1430 worked great on arrival

By SD Doug from San Diego on 03/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very similar to a defunct Epson 1280 I previously owned, right down to its revised software print interface. The 1280 worked well and I am equally happy with the Artisan 1430 printer, which is way more reasonably priced than the r2000,r2880,r3000replacements with higher ink costs, but which have other benefits. Installation via USB was very quick and I was printing only a few minutes later. Ink prices went up $15 for the 6pk right after I bought it, wish I had bought more.

Always buy Epson

By Frank from Philadelphia,PA on 03/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've bought Epson printers for almost 20yrs. I've have always been happy with the results. I do semi-pro photography. The prints I get are excellent and durable. Just bought the Artisan 1430 after wearing out my stylus photo 1430 after many years of use. In all the years I've used Epson I've never once had to return anything or contact customer support. Looking forward to using my new Artisan!

Artisan1430 for amateur photographer

By Ernie from Clearwater, FL on 03/26/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had my Artisan 1430 for about 5 months. I have had other Epson printers because of the long print life but the pigment inks clogged the print head if left unused for vacation etc. So I bought the Artisan and love it. First thing I noticed that anything I printed on any surface looked to be the correct color no shifts on CDs or glossy, satin, or mat papers. This was 1000% better than the pigment printers. Also seems to print on more surfaces not needing special coating. Longevity of prints is outstanding; I put a print out on a screened in porch getting sun most of the day in Florida for 3 months and think I can maybe detect some possible fading. Everyone loves the vivid and accurate colors. Only complaint is this printer does not come in larger (17") format.

RE: Epson 1430 printer

By Herb C from Long Beach, CA on 03/21/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a replacement for my Epson 1400 ... it seems to be superior. It still uses my excesses of 1400 ink cartridges which is a great savings! It still takes an amazing amount of time with the print head zipping back & forth as to decide weather it really wants to start printing or not. Its printing\ on CDs is excellent & very easy!

By designerwriter from Fredericksburg TX on 03/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Replacing my Epson Stylus Photo 2200, which I seem to have had forEVER. I like everything about this new printer. Good imagery, color, easy to use. I've had it for almost two months. WAY quieter than prior one. Seems to use about the same amount of ink (which is always going up in price, no exception here). Good thing the printer itself isn't.

Purchased this printer a little while ago. Absolutely stunning photos! Prints quickly.. very high detail. Love it. We now make our own custom photos, and even print for our friends for a small fee, and it is great! Easy to setup, easy to change ink, easy to load papers of various sizes. Oh, and you can make killer detailed CD/DVD/BluRay disks. Surprise your friends and family with custom photo CD's.. with there pictures on it! I highly recommend this printer to anyone who wishes to print for themselves. I also have many other Epson products, and I wouldn't change to any other Brand! Ever.

Choose a different printer

By Bill from Ashfield, MA on 03/11/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

While it was working, the Artisan 1430 was an excellent printer. However, it did not stay working for very long. One day it stopped taking paper from the holder and never printed another page. It did not get heavy use and it didn't last for very long. Fortunately, I had purchased an extended warrantee, but after receiving two replacement printers which also didn't function, I am giving up and switching to another manufacturer.

Replacement for Photostylus 1400

By Polo from South Florida on 03/09/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When I learned that the Artisan 1430 was the replacement for the Stylus 1400, I was disappointed. I have had two 1400's and loved them! The Artisan was less expensive...how could it be as good? We'll...it certainly is as good, and better in some ways. It is not as stylish as the 1400 (the Artisan is more 'boxy'). The Artisan puts out photos as good as, better perhaps, and does it more quietly than the 1400. I think it is a tad faster than the 1400. The installation/set-up was mostly easy. It produced a brilliant color print the first time I used it! I am very happy!

If you are looking for a wide-format, photo-quality printer, you can't go wrong with this one.

Also, customer service has always been outstanding.

Printer good, installation directions awful

By Anonymous from North Florida on 02/17/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer makes beautiful photo prints. The "Best Photo" option is very slow, but I will use it on special enlargements. This printer is a replacement for my wonderful series 1400 printer, which I used for 5 years and literally wore out. I was looking forward to installing this as a wireless printer but after 3 days I gave up. The printed directions and those on the install CD appear to be in complete conflict and the computer cannot find the printer. After talking with someone else who tried to install her wireless Epson Workforce series printer for three weeks I decided not to waste my time. If you really need a wireless printer, I hope you have technical prowess.

So tired of the greed

By bamboozled from Oh on 02/11/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Epson has removed the ability to reset your waste ink counter when it deems that your ink pads are full. In the previous 1400s, 1800 and 1900 I owned, this was a free utility provided by epson. Now, if you're not at least moderately tech savvy and/or extremely resourceful, there is no way to reset the counter without professional epson service. In addition to the overpriced ink, clogging nozzles that wastes the expensive ink during cleaning, and now not being able to reset your own waste ink counter, I see this as another gouge in the pocketbooks of Epson's loyal customers. I was fortunate enough to figure a way around this, and I will continue to use my printer that is barely a year old by installing an external waste ink tank, but I know that a great many others won't be quite as fortunate... To all of you loyal epson users and DIYers! Beware of the dreaded "A printers ink pad is at the end of it's service life" error message

So Far So Good

By photomom from Gainesville, FL on 02/03/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had the Epson Artisan 1430 about a week now and so far it has exceeded my expectations. I bought this printer to replace my R1800 that finally gave up the ghost and I have not been disappointed. It was a simple set up right out of the box and within about 15 minutes I was printing my 1st photo. (not using Wi-Fi so cant comment on this hookup) The color rendition on this printer is great. Allowing photoshop to control the color output and choosing the type of paper I used was all I needed to do to get a photograph which looked exactly like what was on my screen. No color casts. I had no printing problems such as banding or paper jams which I saw in some other reviews. Ink use seems to be much better than the 1800. Great Printer so far...Only CON at this time is the pricey ink....

Awesome printer for the money

By ahanna122 from Columbus, Ohio on 01/21/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've needed a new printer for years and I definitely made the right choice. My old printer (also an Epson) was 10 years old, was not wireless and was not large format. I was ready for an upgrade and the Artisan 1430 was the answer. Out of the box it was very simple to set up and the software downloaded quickly to my computer. Within minutes it was printing beautifully and faster than my old printer. As a designer and photographer who frequently prints artwork and photos for clients and customers, this was a great choice for the money. The quality of the prints is very nice and professional. I might consider getting a second one in the future to increase my print time for large quantities.

I've been an avid Epson user for many many years, because of their customer service and just the best products out there.

I do wish Epson would lower their ink price or at least have a good sale from time to time. Thanks Epson for another Great printer!

The quality if the prints from this printer are lovely! The colors are flawless. My only issue is I keep having black smears on the ends of my paper. I'm using Epson paper & ink. It's really frustrating because it doesn't happen until the paper is completely printed so I've wasted more ink and paper than I've been able to use.

Great large format printer

By Peter from Los Osos, Ca on 01/01/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great large format printer, also at a great price compared to others! It produces beautiful high res black and white and color prints up to 13" x 19". The paper size actually is a little bigger, so you can get close to 14" x 20" borderless prints. The ink goes down pretty fast for large prints, especially light cyan and light magenta. Its still a good deal for the price. Installation on wifi was a snap.

Artisan 1430

By NewCastle from Vermont on 12/30/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I already have an Epson 600 printer but required a larger format printer. I did my research and decided on the Epson Artisan 1430. I went to a local store that carried this model but the sales associate convinced me to buy another brand. Well that lasted about 24 hours, my bad, I took it back and came home with the Epson Artisan 1430. WOW! It makes outstanding printed photographs. Just like my 600 I am very satisfied with the 1430. I believe the price was very fair and does provide the quality prints I require. In addition this printer came with Adobe Photoshops Elements. A very nice bonus. I own several photo editing programs and this one is the easiest to use, and does the most. Anyone who is just getting into photo editing will enjoy using this program with their Artisan 1430 printer. Thank you Epson

By bazzbozz from Buffalo, NY on 12/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Although I found this unit to be rather large and bulky, it does everything it has advertised it can do with quality photos. I've printed CD labels with a minimum of extra work to extract info from their preformatted program and was able to use my own program to get the desired result. This printer has worked well, however the printer cartridges [6] are rather pricey compared to other printers I have owned! However this is the only printer I found on the market that will print directly onto CD's!!

The only two things I ...

By Kona-Cowboy from Kailua-Kona, HI on 12/21/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only two things I don't like are, first: that the user can't move the image around on the page. If I want to print two images on an 8.5 X 11 sheet, there is no room to make a border between the two images, and second: I can't seem to get the "low ink" to tell me which ink cartridges are low. Otherwise, it seems to be a very good product.

1430 a bit disappointing

By Mac from Scappoose, OR on 12/18/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

First, I believe Epson makes great photo printers. I've had the R800 and the R1800 and was very satisfied. I do a lot of photo printing, mostly personal stuff and an occasional wedding. I was in the market for a new printer and, based on the ads, YouTube reviews and written reviews, I decided to buy the 1430. To me it has not lived up to my expectations. It's easy to use but I was expecting better photo quality. Maybe it needs a little tweaking; I haven't messed with it too much and need to do that. I understand that it is not a high-end, professional printer. Still I was expecting better. I wish I could trade it in for a better Epson printer.

My Epson 1430 Review

By sunsetcliff from San Diego, California on 12/17/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

On the Positive side: I purchased this printer after reading information on the dye-type ink that indicated better brilliance than pigment type and still achieving long-term stability with archival status. I was not disappointed! The color achieved is perfection! What I see on my monitor is rendered true on the print to perfection. The set-up was effortless. On the Negative side: The reporting of ink levels is inaccurate. The display of remaining ink is not always its current status. What really irritates me is the same issue I have with other Epson printers. When I replace an ink cartridge, it goes through a priming process that discharges ink from the others. Often, this process, then, causes a low ink level on another cartridge requiring yet another discharge of ink from all of them. I believe this to be a fine quality printer at a very reasonable price. The photo prints are outstanding!

Overall, a great printer

By ABinder from New York, NY on 12/16/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fast, beautiful colors. Only gripes, paper sometimes doesn't feed straight, and the default setting when printing multiple page documents is first page first, which leaves you having to re-order the pages.

Pretty good but need more ink options

By ccf from Charleston, SC on 12/16/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer to print art prints of my paintings to sell. The print quality is really good so good job Epsom. The ink cartridges do not last very long and they need to be much larger in capacity. I would like options on ink - I always run out of the same two colors and the printer will not let me override. I want to be able to print for longer periods of time before replacing my cartridges. Also - why do you not sell empty bladders that we can refill for this printer? I am asking ....no demanding that we have this option. Epsom recommends their ink so now its time to listen to your customers and let us purchase the same ink in a way that we can fill it ourselves. My next printer will have this option. The expense and huge time suck to run out and repurchase cartridges that do not last might not be worth it.

A Very Pleasant Surprise

By PhotoG from Los Angeles, California on 12/16/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first venture into having a dedicated photo printer and it was a very pleasant surprise. I have been into photography for over 30 years and have always had others do my printing. This printer is excellent, easy to use and has very high quality prints. Unless I wanted to have a 16 by 20 or larger (which I still would have someone else do) I couldn't recommend this product more strongly. I can imagine the more expensive Epson printers may be better, but it is hard to imagine how. I would recommend this printer to anyone.

Works Great

By Stu from Michigan on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I loved my 1400 but, I now use a windows computer, a I Mac, a mac laptop and my wife has two windows computers so it was time to put my photo printer on line. The 1430 has the same cartridges as the 1400 (I always have a stock of new cartridges on hand) and I loved my photos of the 1400 thus I had no choice. After several mounts I recommend this Printer to every one.

An Outstanding Printer

By JasperSteve from Atlanta Area on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an outstanding color printer. It has done everything that I have asked of it. It does require a lot of desk space as it is very large, but it also can print large formats. Yes, it requires many ink cartridges (very expensive) but the color quality is very professional looking. I have not tried to set up whatever wireless capability it has since I connect it directly to my computer by USB. I find little to fault with this printer.

Epson Artisan 1430

By DJODCOLO from Loveland, Colorado on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer for two reasons: to print larger format photos and to print on a variety of papers. The print color reproduction is excellent. Large format (13 x 19) photos take a while to print but are well worth the wait. I have also used it to print on premium card stock and I'm delighted by the way the printer handles this heavier weight paper. I do wish the printer had a LCD status window on it, but this is a minor inconvenience. Overall a fine printer.

Excellent Picture Printer

By Cuzinboo from DMV on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I received the 1430 as a gift and I must say that its a far better printer than what I was using, the only complaint I have is that its not an "Air Printer", meaning that you can't send pictures to it from over the internet or any where besides your in house network, I have the iPhone 4s and the only way to print pictures from my phone is to download the Epson app and print through the app. Other Air Printers have their own email address and can print from any where, but maybe they cost more, but for printing pictures, it's great.

Great Versatile Photo Printer

By Mark from Westport, CT on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this to replace a very old Epson 1280 and I'm very pleased that I did. I use it mainly for printing color photos, but like its Super B (13" x 19") size for printing posters plus the ability to print on CDs. The wireless capabilities mean I can share it with others without having to mess with a USB print server. An Ethernet port would be preferred, but the WiFi setup is pretty easy. Color quality is superb, but I've come to expect that with the good Epson printers. Consumable costs are still a concern. I only use Epson paper and inks and like it when the Epson store offers steep discounts on papers.

Wonderful workhorse printer

By jbug from New York, NY on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer for my 80 lb card stock printing. It handles the thicker paper beautifully and produces crisp, vibrant prints. My only complaint is that borderless printing is only possible on the pre-programmed sized papers. I would love if Epson could design a printer that is capable of producing custom borderless prints.

artisan 1430

By photog from Undisclosed on 12/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wanted a wide format printer for a while. While shopping around in stores I found that Epson was the only brand offering a wide format .I chose the Artisan over the new Stylus model due to the cost. This is the first Epson printer I have bought. My first print was a 13 x 19 on matte paper and it was beautiful. I cant wait to try the Epson Premium gloss paper. I take a lot of wildlife photos and gloss paper is a better choice for them . I guess I will wait for next online sale. So far It's been a GREAT printer. Thanks Epson.

I am more than pleased with the quality and economy provided by this printer. Customer service has also been supportive and quite good.

Hopefully that is now resolved.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am very happy with my new printer. It is solidly constructed and works well with my 80 lb card stock. My only complaint so far is that you can't print borderless on custom sized papers (only on the pre-set settings that Epson has programmed into the printer.) Surely, someday Epson can make custom borderless printing possible?

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It's really nice to be able to print large photos. Setup was pretty easy on Windows 7, Windows 8, and MacOS. I tried a 13"x19" portrait and the color turned out very nice with good detail. The printer seems fast enough for most uses. The printer is large but not that deep, which is good except you need some extra room for the paper tray. WiFi works fine - it would be nice if it had wired networking as well.

Great value

By WM from Boise, ID on 11/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Awesome wireless printing. Prints Normal documents and photos up to 13 inches wide. Compact space saving size for home offices and does one thing and does it very well. Not an all in one. Handles various paper types using six separate ink cartridges. The inks are not usually in stock at your local stores so plan to order refills online. I use only Epson ink and paper. If using other paper brands then you will need to find the proper printing profile for that paper choice. All papers have a profile. The Artisan comes with Epson profiles installed. Great value for your money. Shortly after buying mine, a friend of mine went out and bought one as well. Showed him some prints and that was all it took. Con: wish it could print 16x20, but at this price I'm happy.

I ordered directly from Epson and received it in good time. It took just a short time to set up. I have NOT set it up for wireless because I also own a Epson 1400 which uses USB so keep them both the same. No big deal! Both units print absolutely beautiful photos. Color is fantastic! My only complaint is when printing large quantities on Matte card stock that feeding is a problem. Otherwise you can't beat these printers. They are great!

A Winner with Glossy Photos

By Jerre from Honolulu, Hawaii on 11/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My old wide-bed printer gave up the ghost Friday afternoon, sending me in desperation to the local OfficeMax looking for a replacement. The salesman recommended the Artisan 1430, so I took his word for it and made the purchase. Took it back to the office, installed the drivers in the computer, hooked it up and finished up the color printing that needed to be done before the weekend. Everything went smoothly, a painless transition. The color quality straight out-of-the-box was at least as good as my old printer " I didnt give it another thought. Saturday morning I went in early and decided to fine-tune the computer/printer color settings. I tinkered around a bit and decided to print out a photo of an oil painting by one of our area artists, put in 13 X 19-inch high quality glossy photo paper, hit the print button and enjoyed sipping on my Morning Joe while the printer did its thing. When it was through, went over to see the results and could not believe my eyes: Gorgeous color! Depth of detail! Stunning visual impact! All the elements I liked in the original artwork I finally saw in an inkjet printout. Spent the rest of the day experimenting with different papers and settings, and concluded the Artisan 1430 is a good overall inkjet printer. But! It really excels with high-gloss photo paper. It earns every one of those five stars in my rating.

Great Printer

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have only just set up the printer and tested it with 5 prints... output is sharp, good color and about anything one would ask for in a printer in this price range. Best of all, it's really simple to use. I still like my R 3000, (more versatility) but it's sick so I replaced it until it has been treated. The Artisan produces every bit as good prints, and more easily, too! Guess I'll soon have two wonderful machines.

Wide prints/DVDs and clear text

This is actually the second printer I own in the 1400 series of printer. I am still using our 1400 to print documents, large posters and, for us most important, printing DVD/CD discs for our business. Epson is about the only company that makes a printer which prints DVDs directly on the disc. The networked 1430 allows me to print larger documents from multiple computers. A real plus.

Excellent printer

By glf from California on 10/19/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a semi-professional photographer & graphic artist, it is important to me that printed output represents the color on the monitor. With a little experimentation, I was able to find profiles that output colors exactly as seen on the monitor. Resolution is wonderful. It's not the fastest printer, but I prefer quality over blazing speed. I also own an Artisan 800 all-in-one printer and really like the fact that both use the same type of inks. This is a fantastic photo-quality printer with output that is easily comparable to printers costing hundreds of dollars more.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I ordered matte photo paper the first time I ordered paper and cannot find out how to tell the printer what type of paper I'm using. When I printed on the matte paper, the picture is awful, so I'm assuming it is set to print on the premium glossy. I received one free sheet of the glossy either with the printer or when I ordered the matte paper and printed a scrap book page on it and it was fantastic. Just don't know how to use up the matte so I can order the Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy. All I use this printer for is scrapbook pages I do digitally on the computer.

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Unfortunately my 7 month old Dell computer crashed and they were unable to fix it. After 2 weeks of about 10 calls to and from India they sent me a new refurbished computer with Windows 8 even after I asked for Windows 7. My old Epson 1400 printer will not work with the new software I had to buy for Windows 8 so in order to print 13x19. I was forced by lack of updated drivers to buy the 1430. If you could find another brand that prints 13 x19 I would buy it, maybe they would be more willing to update drivers and not force you buy a new model when the old one worked just fine.

Amazing Print Quality

By dccalkins from Southeastern Massachusetts on 09/18/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Criteria and selection. I was looking for a new wide path after an unhappy experience with an on-line printing service. I had has a good experience with an Epson Stylus photo 785EPX, and since I photograph a lot of people I have found that the 6 color printing technology. The Artisan 1430 was well within my price range too. I had read many on line reviews, some of which mentioning initial banding and excessive noise, so I took thesd into account. Setup I had no difficulties at all in setting this printer, by following the easy instruction. Users should be aware that they will need a USB cable to set up this printer even for wireless printing. Test printing I test printed using the Free Ultra Premium Photo Paper the comes with it. Purchasers should be aware that it only comes with 2 pieces of 4" x 6" stock, which is not a lot. I happen to have some high quality matte stock. The print quality is rich and vibrant. I am extraordinarily happy with this. I imagine that a lot of problems that people reported experiencing with banding people got was from using ordinary laser printer paper, because I never saw it because of my use of high quality paper exclusively Noise I have to disagree with the printer noise problems that other reviewers mention. I found that compared to my Stylus 785EPX and a third party B&W Laser Printer I own, it's the quietest of the 3 by far. Concerns One of the reasons I chose this printer is because of the wide path printing. The Recommended Epson Ultra Premium Paper only comes in sizes up to 8.5" x 11. I am hoping to find larger paper that will yield the same superb results without spending too much on ink and media. That being said, if Epson offered sizes up to 13" x 19" I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Love my Epson

By Gapple from Sparta,New Jersey on 09/13/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I absolutely love my Epson printer for many reasons. The print quality is amazing, clear, bright, professional in appearance. I love the fact that it is larger format. I do have one BIG problem that I haven't been able to fix...The paper feed gives me too much trouble. The paper very often doesn't feed especially if the paper is 10.5 mg or above in thickness. If and when it does feed, it goes through without printing. This is so frustrating because I haven't been able to troubleshoot this problem or get an answer. I am constantly printing and this has been hapening more and more. #Ineedofserioushelp!!!!

Photography is my hobby and making big beautiful prints is my goal. I live in the Pacific Northwest so vivid greens are prominent in my pictures, however, I haven't been able to get those bright electric greens. Otherwise the 1430 is fast, quiet, and wireless.

Artesian 1430

By Iceman 2002 from Clinton Township Mi on 09/05/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Set up on my computers was fast and worry free. Tests were colorful and sharp with vibrant colors. This printer replaced my Epson R300 which gave me 9 years of great photos . the only trouble I had was getting my wife's I Pad on line. Called customer assistance and I was connected in 5 minutes .I hope to have years of service with this printer and I cannot wait to do large format photos on it .

My New Printer

By Scott (Pa) from Boca Raton, Florida on 08/28/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We purchased the new Epson Artisan 1430 as a replacement for a competitors that had broken...and wow am I happy we made the switch! Very easy to install, and as an amateur photographer I was looking for a printer that gives beautiful color on different size papers. The Artisan exceeded my most critical expectations. Less expensive replacement cartridges and great color...now who has it better than me?

Not happy with my new (Only been in service 2 weeks) Epson 1430 Artisan---For the last 4 days, I can't get it to print anything but black and gray 1" bands of solid ink---Not happy with printer, and certainly not happy with how much ink this thing must wasting--with zero production results.

Excellent Printer

By Backyard Gardener from Central Vermont on 08/19/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We bought this printer to make panoramic photos at 13" X 19". It has been an excellent printer. It was easy to set up with wireless, so it doesn't have to be next to the computer. The colors are very good and the prints dry quickly. We take a lot of nature pictures and the variations of colors come out very nicely.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The 1430 set up easily, though not quickly, and worked well right off the bat. Print quality is very good! Speed is adaquate and noies levels low. I just wish inks were less expensive. Mainly I use it for printing photographs in sizes from 4 x 6 to 13 x 19. All types of stock feed well.

Pretty good

By Shootergirl from Undisclosed on 08/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer bc I wanted an inkjet to print tshirt iron ons as well as good quality photos to hang. I actually haven't tried to the tshirt thing yet (oops). The photos are pretty good, but not knock your socks off fantastic. A little disappointing. On the plus side, the printer feeds large paper, in particular 12"x12" sheets, which is great for scrap booking. Overall, it was a good buy, just not a great buy.

Artisian 1430

By Charlie Horse 32 from Chesapeake, VA on 08/05/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this printer for more than a year now and have loved it from the first day I used it. Poster and photo output is excellent, the 13x19 size paper is difficult to get but not impossible. I have not tried the CD/DVD print function so I cannot comment on it. WISH LIST - This printer would benefit from a roll paper capability for long banner printing. Also, it would be nice if it printed regular documents faster than it does, especially when using the "Letter Document - Fast" setting on the Shortcut tab of the driver software. I would highly recommend this printer to anyone needing its capabilities.

Disastrous results

By Rufus from Boston, MA on 08/02/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am a graphic artist who has long championed Epson Stylus printers for their accuracy and reliability. My work, in particular demands accurate laydown of all colors of ink. I recently needed a wide format printer. I wanted it to be an Epson. I chose the Artisan 1430 over a wide format Stylus because it was cheaper. The results were disastrous from the start: The colors do not print in the same place across the 11" width of the paper. In other words, the image will be sharp at one end of the paper, then go progressively out of alignment toward the other end, resulting in an almost unreadable double or triple image. I have followed all the print head alignment adjustment protocols, etc. with continued unsatisfactory results. If this is a defective printer, perhaps Epson will offer to take it back and replace it with another, or perhaps permit me to upgrade to a wide format Stylus, which I suspect is a far superior machine. I await word from Epson and will report back in this review section as I learn more.

Epson-best on the market

By Sshar from New Mexico on 08/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used an old Epson wide format printer for years for my artistic/photographic work. When it finally gave up the ghost, I purchased the less expensive Artisan 1430, just to keep going until I can afford a professional model. I have to say, the Artisan provides such good output I can postpone (purchase of) the professional model for awhile. Good job, Epson!

Big Prints from a Small Printer

By Av8Chuck from California on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have an older Epson 4000 which was too temperamental if I didn't use it every day so I thought I would get an inexpensive desktop printer to proof with. The Artisan 1430 has turned my 4000Pro into a paper weight. I've printed a bunch of 11x17 prints, easy to load paper, easy to use and it works every time. This printer worked straight out of the box as advertised.

Bottom Line:

I have always purchased Epson printers, I know I can depend on this line of printers to give me the quality I want and need. Previously I had a Epson stylus 1400 and boy did I use the heck out of it. Now I have my new 1430 wide format as before and it prints up beautiful photos, which for my home hobby/business I really need to depend on the output of photos with rich beautiful colors, and it always delivers. So Thank You Epson for a great printer.

I like this one

By Old Dog New Tricks from Oneida, NY on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have been wanting a wide carriage printer for some time. Finally pulled the trigger on this one. The prints that this produces are beautiful. With that said I do find the inks are expensive, and I had a problem with it being wifi. I was limited to the number of devices on my network and had to leave the printer off when I wasn't using it. This led to head cleaning every time I turned it on and used up the ink. I tried to find a way to turn just the wifi off but couldn't. I have since updated my network and that is not an issue. I use this printer almost exclusively for my photographic printing now. Epsons have long been a favorite printer and I am not disappointed with this one.

Artisan 1430 for a small practice

By ARG PLLC from Kirkland, WA on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had my 1430 for several months and find it works very well for my needs of printing 1/2 size documents. I also create DVDs' for the video lesson work I do. And I use the printer to print labels on the DVDs'. The setup was fairly straight forward although the wireless feature took a bit of work to get it functioning correctly. Make sure you have a fairly new wireless router for the current frequency requirements. And the two sided printing function is clumsy.If you buy it for that feature I would not suggest the printer in that way. The inks are fairly costly. But to mitigate the cost Epson makes a high capacity cartridge which seems to work well in both quality and duration. Understanding the needs for a printer like this I would not hesitate recommending it to another professional.

Great printer for the price

By authorintraining from Colorado Springs, CO on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Having a wide-carriage printer has always been something I wanted to own, but never thought I could afford it. A friend of mine is a professional photographer and he bought the Epson Artisen 1430. The photo he printed was so beautiful, flawless and professional, that when I found out the cost was within my budget, I went the next day to get one for myself. I have not been disappointed. I am a book publisher, and I can now print full front and back covers without having to piece them together. This is one of the best purchases I have made since my business began 20 years ago. I love that the ink is affordable and easily replaceable. Not only is the wireless feature easy to set up, but the printer is so user-friendly, I have gone from 7 printers to just 3. I don't need all those others to keep my business going. The Epson does it all.

Printer of Powerful Perfect Prints

By Larry Jr from Dover, DE on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer (1430) is my first 13" wide printer. I'm very impressed by the quality and depth of the colors. I love that the printer displays which ink carts are low on ink, and stops in the middle of printing when one runs out of ink. But the best part is once the new cart is installed it picks up where it left off. Have not been able to print the 13 X 40" format yet, but have done several 13 X 24's and they are gorgeous. Still love and use my 2004 model Epson Photo R320 too. Epson makes GREAT printers!

I purchased this printer to replace a Epson Stylus Photo 2200, which I made the mistake of purchaseing 3rd party ink and let it sit too long when i had a heart attack.

More than expected

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had an Artisan 800 for several years now and decided to get an additional printer that would allow me to do larger prints. I was more than happy with my 800 and had had enough bad experiences with other brands, so I stayed with Epson. My first prints were of photos that I had taken while in Italy and the results were much better than I could have hoped for. The only negative that I've found so far was the amount of ink that it consumes, but the end more than justifies the means!!

Solid Large Format Printer

By Steve D from St. Charles, IL on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought the printer to expand my photo printing capabilities without spending the money for the really high end stuff. Easy set up (wireless), very good quality prints, easy to use, does not seem to be an ink-hog. It is large, but fits in top of my lateral file w/ no problem. Overall if you are not going semi-pro level or higher I think this printer is an excellent choice and you will be happy with your prints, large and small, as well as overall cost.

epson 1430

By Anonymous from Louisville, KY on 08/01/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

If you need a color printer that takes large format sheets, this is the one to buy. I had the model before this one and wore it out. It did last a long time and printed thousands of photos with no problems. Nothing needs to be changed. I like the way the paper loads. This makes it easy to do two-sided prints. All said, it is an excellent value for the price, in fact better than some costing more.

I had a 1400 epson and when that one died, I purchased the 1430 Artisan. I am not dissatisfied. This is a great upgrade from the 1400. It is basicly the same printer but has a few more additions like the ink lights to show which cartridridge is empty. It seems to be better built than the 1400.

Epson Artician 1430 Large Format Printer

By Canonbychoice from White Hall, Arkansas on 07/28/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This printer is a total failure in my opinion. I printed 2 8x10's and 14 4x6's on this in the 4 days I have owned it. The ink cartridges cost do not justify the cost to replace and for the small amount of pictures I have printed, the cartridges are 25% used. It says high capacity cartridges. You will be better served and cheaper to have your photo's printed up at a photo shop. Now after 4 day's I went to print a photo and the printer will not even print. All I get are reds. The ink jets are plugged and it is headed back to the store. By the time you buy the printer, a set of extra ink cartridges, a package of 13x19 premium photo paper you are way into an expense for a printer that just is not worth it.

Just right for an upgrade

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using Epson Printers since 2004. My last two Epson printers couldn't print beyond 8X10 and I always wanted to add 11X14. When my last printer quit working it was time to search for an Epson printer that allowed printing up to 11X14. I was immediately impressed with the Artisan 1430 and ordered It Having a familiarity with Epson printers helped in set up. Set up went smooth and the wireless network set up was excellent. I am sure that this printer will perform as well or better than my previous Epson printers.

Excellent Value

By jmb6800 from Amherst, MA on 07/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer has been the best purchase I've made in a long time. The quality is very high, from smooth and easy paper feed to brilliant printing in both color and b&w. Large single color areas show absolutely no ink discontinuity under a magnifying glass, and the black is truly black without tint. I'm also surprised at how long the ink seems to last. I've run a good many 8x10 prints and am just now reaching the end of one of the cartridges. I've had consistently great results, and the included software enhances the whole package. I use Lightroom 4, and I've found it very easy to match the screen to the print. An unqualified positive experience!

Good printer.

By Cindy from Houston, TX on 07/16/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like this printer enough to own two of them. I also owned a similar model before this. It works well -- color and image come out very good for a printer in this price range. Better than any others I've tried. The wireless works great and sets up easily. While most of my work will fit a standard letter size paper, I often need to print on large or odd sized papers and this can handle almost anything. I also like the separate ink cartridges - I never run out of all colors at the same time. This has been a reliable printer -- that's why I have two! Overall, I think this is a good buy for a larger format printer.

Epson Artisan 1430

By joe184 from Oswego, New York on 07/12/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wanted a printer that was specifically designed for photographs. While the printer is the most expensive inkjet printer I have ever purchased, it was the most highly rated relative to the cost of a photo printer. The printer does produce excellent photographs. I use the wireless function of the printer. However, I did not find the wireless setup for the Macintosh OS to be straight forward. My experience with Epson wireless printers and other wireless printer allowed me to easily overcome this lack of clarity. However, a novice may eventually need to call Epson for assistance.

Epson Artisan 1430

By TheOldOrc from Moses Lake, WA on 07/08/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought for myself and daughter. I do graphics for a county fair and my daughter makes computer graphics, artwork (paint then scan into computer), writes stories and illustrates them and has a website that she uses to put out her main story with graphics for people to read and follow. Bought the printer to printout 19X13 inch small posters along with 17X11, 12 X 12, and smaller prints of her artwork. This printer was one of the easiest to set up that I have had the pleasure to set up. The WI-FI connected almost instantly to my router and was ready to go in less than 5 minutes. Minor problem for us: Found that we could not print out any 19X13 computer generated art work in the PNG format (Micromedia on a PC), had to convert them to Jpeg. After that they would print about 90% then fail at the 19X13 size. By reducing the size to below 17X11, all graphics printed out for her using photo paper and high quality printing. Absolutely amazing printouts were realized. I am able to print out all my 19X13 posters that I use to identify sections of our building at the fair grounds. (12 total) these have clip art, photo art and a central logo for the Fair. These have printed out superbly without a single problem using Word and Publisher. So far have not ran the machine out of ink so am very happy with the way it prints for me, my daughter not so much but am trying to find some workarounds or reducing the size of her files. Overall very happy with the purchase of this machine, plus the colors and graphics are outstanding.

Epsom 1430

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the best printer I have ever bought. I love the wide papar and canvuos that I print . I was shocked whit the beauty of the canvuos photos I printed out so far. I know the Nickon 24.2 mega pix has a lot to do with it but I think the printer is great.
