Excerpt: 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.
Summary: I purchased this printer in October 2014, but held off leaving a review until I really had a chance to use and abuse this printer (and by abuse, I mean use it a lot!). I am a graphic designer, offering print services to my clients for invitations and party printables.
Excerpt: So far I am not real happy the printer it will not initialize wirelessly therefore I have not yet been able to test its total performance. All of my printing is done on Epson machines yet I have never had the problems that I have with this one I can only hope that this issue is resolved without...
Excerpt: I was hoping to print photos with this product. The prints it produces are awful full of lines. I've tried all kinds of things recommended on line and nothing works. The printer is also an ink hog.
Excerpt: I purchased the Artisan Printer and after five months of light use it will no longer print correctly on the first print. If they printer has not been used for more than 24 hours then it takes the printer a few prints before the colors are correct. It shouldn't need to warm up.
Excerpt: When we buy a printer, we shouldn't have to know how to change or control "ports" on our computers. This unit won't work with my network because my computer uses a port for wi-fi that the printer "doesn't support".
Summary: I bought it to print images and photos to sell, as well as vinyl heat transfers and magnets. Oh, how I wish I could return it. Unfortunately hubby lost the receipt (bought locally). Main issue: It will not print navy blue. I've tried every reasonably priced way of color managing.
Summary: I purchased this printer about 6 months ago and I loved it, and had I made a review then I would've given it 5 stars. Now almost print larger than 5x7 comes out with random ink blots on it. This is a major waste of ink and paper. I have to replace it. So now it gets 2 stars
Summary: I am sorry to say I am returning the 1430 to Amazon. It took me an exceptionally long time to load the drivers/ and associated programs because the DVD/CD software they supplied is not compatible with Windows 8.1 64 bit.
