Summary: I am very happy with my new printer. It is solidly constructed and works well with my 80 lb card stock. My only complaint so far is that you can't print borderless on custom sized papers (only on the pre-set settings that Epson has programmed into the printer.) Surely, someday Epson can make custom borderless printing possible?
Summary: I am more than pleased with the quality and economy provided by this printer. Customer service has also been supportive and quite good. Only complaint is that all drivers and utilities were not present and caused a lot of consternation and wasted time and materials trying to print 10X7 greeting cards. Hopefully that is now resolved.
Summary: It's really nice to be able to print large photos. Setup was pretty easy on Windows 7, Windows 8, and MacOS. I tried a 13"x19" portrait and the color turned out very nice with good detail. The printer seems fast enough for most uses. The printer is large but not that deep, which is good except you need some extra room for the paper tray. WiFi works fine - it would be nice if it had wired networking as well.
Summary: Awesome wireless printing. Prints Normal documents and photos up to 13 inches wide. Compact space saving size for home offices and does one thing and does it very well. Not an all in one. Handles various paper types using six separate ink cartridges. The inks are not usually in stock at your local stores so plan to order refills online. I use only Epson ink and paper.
Summary: I have been using an Epson 1400 for a few years now and it has worked great and has met all my needs. I upgraded to the Epson 1430 only for the WiFi connectivity so I could print from my Ipad and phone. So far the 1430 has met all my expectations. Epson makes great products.
Summary: Bought this to upgrade a previous Epson. Wanted the larger format and the archival ink. Being able to use the wifi feature has been great for connecting to iPad. Have used many epson printers in the past. Never disappointed. This is the first one from refurbished. Operates like new. Excellent.
Summary: I ordered directly from Epson and received it in good time. It took just a short time to set up. I have NOT set it up for wireless because I also own a Epson 1400 which uses USB so keep them both the same. No big deal! Both units print absolutely beautiful photos. Color is fantastic! My only complaint is when printing large quantities on Matte card stock that feeding is a problem. Otherwise you can't beat these printers. They are great!
Summary: My old wide-bed printer gave up the ghost Friday afternoon, sending me in desperation to the local OfficeMax looking for a replacement. The salesman recommended the Artisan 1430, so I took his word for it and made the purchase. Took it back to the office, installed the drivers in the computer, hooked it up and finished up the color printing that needed to be done before the weekend. Everything went smoothly, a painless transition.
