Outstanding printer and easy to use! The color from this printer is exceptional. I'm looking forward to creating items for gifts, personal use and for selling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DogRunner Back to Epson
Having remarried late in life, my spouse had used printers other than Epson. Misbehavior and variance in color production, convinced me to stick with Epson. I have had a lot of success in enlarging photos to 8x10, even crops out of old 2 meg cameras, always using Epson photo printers. So with my upgrade to the latest Windows OS, I upgraded to an Epson Artison. Had to be real creative in making space for it as we have an Espon 4-in-one for faster document printing and faxing and an Epson photo scanner. It does have a very large foot print, considering it also needs to be away from the wall for the incoming paper support to hold larger paper. With the problems I have had getting previous printers reliable on wifi, I was totally amazed to see this truly plug-and-play. Ink is expensive--haven't found a better place to purchase than Epson.com, as I do not trust 3rd parties related to being refills and not being extra capacity, but being able to buy one color at a time means you only have to buy ink that you need, not toss a whole cartridge. I do always have a back up cartridge for each color and reorder as soon as I put the back up cartridge in. Epson offers free shipping if you don't need it for a week or so, so it pays to have a back up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skiwege Prints too slow & economy mode not beneficial
Pros: Photos are very, very nice. Large format is terrific. Cons: If you leave 11"x17" paper in upright tray, the corners starts to curl backwards because there is no support for the entire top of the paper. The "economy" print mode which equates to a draft mode designed to save you ink is worthless to me. The print is so light it's barely visible, so you need to always print in at least normal mode. Yet normal print mode prints too slow for me. The print preview screen is very poor quality with poor rendering.
I recommend this printer as a photo printer due to its remarkable photo quality and capabilities. I don't recommend it as a regular everyday speedy printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by larimor Highest quality printer available
I've been using Artisan printers for years and have been totally impressed with the quality and ease of use of the product. The 1430 is an upgrade from the 50 I have been using and still use. The 1430 is most impressive with the wide carriage and the disk carriage. It looks like a printer that would cost $1,000 for only a few hundred. Now with the wireless capability it will be even more convenient since I print from several work stations at any given time. I've always gotten professional printed CD and DVD products and expect the same experience for many more years with this new printer. The printer was easy to install, only taking minutes and worked perfectly the first time I tried it.

The product I bought previous to Epson was heavy, setup was unfriendly and it was defective when I turned it on. I returned it and bought an Epson Artisan 1430 as recommended by an artisan. Setup was a breeze. Artwork printed is awesome. Thank you Epson for making life easy!!!

The Epson Artisan is as easy to set up and use as slicing a piece of cake, Graphics are excellent. For the price you can't beat the color of the prints. I say 5 Star product all the way.

Easy to get up an running. Read instructions twice and make sure you are doing the steps exactly in order. Prints perfectly. I would recommend this unit to anyone who needs a good color printer. Engineer Dave Schneider

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yorkielover Epson 1430 a Great Printer
The Artisan 1430 printer is a big cut above any competing model. I need a large format printer and this handles anything I need. The resolution is fantastic, and I love being able to replace only the ink cartridge that's empty. The feature that made this my only choice was the ability to print directly on DC-ROMs, which I very often do. A big factor in my choice was having owned the older 1400 model, which is still in daily use, and the two models use the same ink cartridges, so I only need to keep a single set of spares on hand for both. The wireless feature makes it easy to find a place to use it, otherwise it would badly crowd my desk. It is slow compared to some other brands due to the high resolution, but quite acceptable. Overall, the perfect printer for my requirements. Even the set-up procedure was very simple.
