Epson Artisan 730 All-in-One Printer
I was looking for a printer obviously, but wanted a high quality scanner as well. I very frequently have a need to scan a document for email purposes. It took about 30 minutes to install everything, including the WiFi (no USB cord required). Everything worked wonderfully and I was actually amazed at the quality of the full color PDF scans. Ink for this machine is expensive however. It uses black plus 5 color cartridges.

I've had this printer for a few years now, and most of the time it prints just fine. But the issues I have with it are that the paper feed, for whatever reason, grabs 2-5 sheets when it prints so I waste a lot, especially when it partially prints on each staggered sheet. And yes, I fan my paper thoroughly before putting it into the cartridge. Also, I work in graphics and the fact that this printer mixes colors to get black rather than printing only from the black cartridge means I don't get a clean black, and I use up ink from the other cartridges when I don't have to. So be aware of that. And finally, although I can print wirelessly from my iPad, which I love, it appears that I cannot change my printer settings for things like printing in black/grayscale only, without turning on my pc. So I would not recommend this printer to anyone, and I will definitely not buy another one if these qualifications are not met.

10th Month of Ownership
OK Great! I bought this printer because of all the great reviews....10 months in and problems begin. First the bleeding of ink till it's empty, then the new OEM replaced ones aren't printing. Now it won't recognize a particular cartridge. I've done my due diligence of websites and help videos. Good bye EPSON inkjet, hello competitor laser printer!!!!!

Worst Printer EVER
I have owned 3 printers in my life. The first reliably printed thousands of papers. This model, the Epson 730, has been the most frustrating, non-productive machine ever. You are constantly re-stocking the ink (and you are ALWAYS out of one of the ink cartridges) no cartridge - no printing. The paper is always jamming up. I never could get it to scan anything. We gave up on trying to make a copy and went to Staples. I've never wanted to take a sludge hammer to an appliance before.

I GOT THIS PRINTER FOR CHRISTMAS ONE YEAR AND THE FIRST TIME I EVER PRINTED I HAD TROUBLE! I HAVE NOT HAD A TIME WHEN I DID NOT HAVE TROUBLE WITH THIS STUPID PRINTER. THE WHOLE REASON FOR THE PRINTER WAS TO PRINT PICTURES AND THE PICTURES HAVE LINES ACROSS THEM. IT HAS PROBLEMS GRABBING PAGES. NOW IT USED A BRAND NEW THING OF INK WHEN I HAD ONLY PRINTED ONE PAGE! THIS NOW MEANS IN ORDER TO PRINT ANYTHING I HAVE TO BUY MORE INK BECAUSE IT WONT EVEN PRINT IN BLACK AND WHITE ONLY!!! SAD EXCUSE FOR A PRINTER!!!!!!!!!!!

The Epson Artisan 730 is the best printer scanner we have had. It effortlessly prints with wi-fi from our laptops, ipads and iphones. I definitely recommend this for use with Apple products.

I have had this printer for 2 years, but just moved it to a new laptop. I originally bought it to see how it would print a printable disk. It worked so well that our church bought one. We provide the local radio station a copy of this week's message and the printable discs tell us what the date and the message title was.
I own 4 Epsons and am sold on the product. Besides the 730, I also have an Artisan 1430, workforces 520 and 4530 which I use for my home business.
The 730 will be used for personal use. My wife has an Epson upstairs in her study. I like the way the ink lasts and the printouts are fantastic.

I bought this printer not just for printing text documents, but for picture printing as well. My last picture printer had ink issues, where the pictures came out wet and color output was completely off. Same thing happened only 6 months after buying this Epson.
I'm so frustrated with this.

I have been really happy with this printer. All functions are great. There is only one thing that could be better. Epson does not update their drivers and supporting files in a very timely manner. I just upgraded my Mac to OS X Mavericks and now my scanner does not work. Overall I would recommend this all-in-one printer.
