Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer
I like the Artisan 1430. Brought it home and put it to work right away. The quality appears pretty good. Almost better than my R2880. Easy to operator, prints good black and white, as well as color.

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.

A Honey of a Printer
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!

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.

Love how quietly and quickly it prints. Thrilled how the straight feed works with thick media. For me it is the perfect printer.

It prints professionally on paper and disks.
It also does well through wi fi.
I love it.

I use Epson Printers exclusively in my portrait studio. Like the previous ones, this printer is a workhorse.

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.

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
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!
