NEVER change router or SSID or wireless key.

Ken, Epson
23 June 2014
  • Summary: Epson provides no method to change your wireless password or SSID with this printer. If you change your router/modem or change your SSID or your wireless key, the printer stops working and there is no way to get it to connect again unless you reinstall the drivers and go through the entire printer setup process again! You cannot access the SSID or wireless key settings from any menu or from any of the printer properties menus. What a waste of time.

Epson 1430

Bob, Epson
31 May 2014
  • Summary: The 1430 was a snap to bring on line as a WiFi shared printer. As with other Epson printers the color prints are excellent. We purchased this printer as a CD/DVD printer and the occasional wide format prints. As a CD/DVD printer, we would have to give low marks when compared to previous CD printers made by Epson. The CD tray has to be cleaned after 3 prints for overspray on the caddy. This causes the ink to get on the hands and sides of the CD's.

Choose a different printer

Adorama
11 March 2014
  • Excerpt: While it was working, the Artisan 1430 was an excellent printer. However, it did not stay working for very long. One day it stopped taking paper from the holder and never printed another page. It did not get heavy use and it didn't last for very long. Fortunately, I had purchased an extended warrantee, but after receiving two replacement printers which also didn't function, I am giving up and switching to another manufacturer.

So tired of the greed

11 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Epson has removed the ability to reset your waste ink counter when it deems that your ink pads are full. In the previous 1400s, 1800 and 1900 I owned, this was a free utility provided by epson. Now, if you're not at least moderately tech savvy and/or extremely resourceful, there is no way to reset the counter without professional epson service.

Doesn't work

hunter, Epson
29 January 2014
  • Summary: I can't make it work. I had to buy another printer to get my printing done because I can't make the printer print anything. My computer recognizes the printer but nothing prints. The printer does not recognize the printer inks that came with the product.
