This printer has the most versatility of any printer I have ever owned. It will print up to 13" x 19" which makes for a variety of posters, signs, etc. I have used it for printing family trees as well as promotional posters. It was a good choice.

My old Epson finally gave up the ghost and I was thinking about a replacement. The Artisan was the replacement printer so I thought why not. Loved the old one and think that this new one will be just as good, maybe better. I have had it only about a month, but so far, I like it a lot. It uses the same ink as before, so that has saved me a lot of money as I had a lot of ink left over from the old printer. This new one is slightly faster and was easy to understand the set-up.
I would highly recommend it for someone that doesn't want to spend there life savings, but wants a good photo printer. Go for it.

I have purchsed many Epson printers. My photo stylus R1900 feeder broke after many years of use.
The Artisan 1430 prints great pictures. You won't be disappointed and it is reasonably priced.
Have had it since December and have had no issues with this printer.

I got this printer about one month ago. Setup was very simple. I am printing heat transfer images with this printer. The prints are beautiful, colors are vivid. I am happy with it. For the small price I paid I got an excellent printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Captain Steve High Quality Epson Stand Alone Printer
It is getting very hard to find a 'stand alone printer.' Many will understand why I prefer a printer to be just a printer. I just replaced an Epson Stylus Photo 900 after 14 years of excellent service with the Artisan 1430. If it weren't for the 'long lasting image' ink used over the years in the 900 that machine could go on and on. That 'long lasting photo' ink hardened too much and eventually clogged the print heads. If the machine provided for access for mechanically cleaning the print heads the 900 would last another 14 years! The Artisan 1430 is essentially the same quality level with the addition of Large Format printing. I have used it for a few weeks now and am very happy with another Epson quality, high end consumer printer. The Artisan 1430 is great! This is also the opinion of professional Printer Repair shops; "the 1400 series has been great!"
The set up was easy with the exception that unlike the 900 which could be plugged into the computer using USB or into the Mac Time Machine Wi-Fi hub with no special set up, the 1430 required 'set up' for both the USB connection and again for the 'wireless' connection to be recognized by the Time Machine Wi-Fi.
Short of a continuous daily duty requirement, this has got to be one of the world's best printers! It sits next to the 2400 Flat Bed scanner which is still solid after 14 years as well.

Form is difficult to use since it was not clear how to expand the form to full size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim1 Noisy and expensive
Epson inkjet printers suck up expensive ink. Not only are the machines themselves expensive, but the inkjet cartridges are astronomical and they do not last very long.

Best in every catagory!
I have had/used Epson products for more than 25 years. The 1430 model continues the Epson product line of ease of use, reliability and quality printing that I have experienced w earlier models. It was very easy to install (MAC operating systems). It functions w less noise and vibration compared to my previous R280 model (which gave up after more than 6 years).
Also, very pleased w Best Buy purchase experience.
