Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Wireless Connection
The Artisan 1430 is an exceptional printer, however, the wireless connection was a, "Bear" to get it to connect. Otherwise, I would have given this printer a 5 star rating.

I have been using Epson printers for a long time. Mostly the multifunction printer. So I decided to try one mainly for photos. I love the finished product. Print comes out with great color. I have always been a fan of Epson ink. I would recommend this printer, ink is expensive but worth it.

I bought this printer to print 8 x 11 photos. I'm not a pro but this printer is great for me. Good colors and little distortion. Ink usage seems good too. Not fast but easy to print one photo at a time. Haven't tried to print a larger size. So far so good. I like this printer.

Several years ago I bought the Stylus 1400 printer and discovered I had no need for ICC profiles - the printer did amazingly well controlling print quality once I told it what paper I was using. I thought this was unbelievable - but I have been a prize-winner with my 1400 prints. When it went down, I opted for its successor, the Artisan 1430 - and at this point I feel the same about this usit as the 1400. I have already won county fair prizes, and this fall I am going to see what I can do to resore the 1400 to its glory.

I consider the paper-prints AND the ability to print directly onto CD disks to be EXECELLENT!

Rated 2 out of 5 by br1ght 2nd clogged unit
I bought my 1st 1430 July 2013 for the business I was opening a few months later. Other than opening the box to confirm there was no shipping damage, the unit remained untouched until August at which time I installed the factory cartridges and used it on a regular basis (read every color used at least 2x/wk).
July 2014, the unit starts to clog and by Sept the unit is unusable. So I order a new unit. Wel,l the second unit made it Christmas 2015 before the same thing happened!
Personally, I think for the money they are a great midsize printer, however, I believe Epson needs to have a lightweight test print automatically run every second day should the printer not have been used. My problems always seemed to be after 3-4 days of inactivity or provide a cleaning kit and maintenance instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer We owned the 1400 for many years and when it died the1430 was the perfect replacement. We are amateur photographers and we print all our own photos on the 1430.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shannon Good for color not black and white
I really like this printer for color photography. But it is not any good for black and white images. When you try to print black and white you get a lot of green tone showing. Need a seperate printer just for black and white.

The best photo printer that I've ever had. I've had three others. Any size printing area from 2 to 13 inches wide. Really sharp Photo Printing. I have used this product less than a week, but have used other photos printer from Epson for about 10 years. (Artisan 50)
