Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer
My first really nice printer
Ordered the Artisan online through Bestbuy...I like the cash rewards on purchases! I installed the printer on a Mac Book Pro. Effortless install, prints at a a decent speed. Will see how it prints on heat transfers and positives for screen printing but so far I am very impressed.

Best printer ever!
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.

Upgraded from a 1280 which was a great printer and this one already has surpassed the quality, very happy with the purchase

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?"

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.
