  • Summary: I have worked with epson printers for about 15 years now. By far the best printer I used was the epson 1400. The epson 1430 should have been put in the junk pile.

Not what I expected

lynnwwill, Officemax
4 February 2014
  • Excerpt: For one thing, I didn't check paper types carefully enough and it won't print on vellum. Another is I din't realize it doesn't scan and the photos aren't that great. I've gotten better pictures on less expensive printers. I bought it primarily for my scrapbooking but I'm just not pleased with the performance and especially at this price.
  • Cons: Features, Does Not Meet Expectations

Artisan 1430

Texstan, Epson
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Easy to hook up, prints simple files cleanly, cannot handle large files well at allu2026banding, ghosting on photo images, etc. Cannot print solids what so everu2026banding through out. I am a graphic designer working with large illustrator C6 files, and I am very disappointed with the print quality of 50% of what I have run through.

Mine was defective out of the box

DAVID A CAVALLARO, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: Cannot really say much about it as it is defective. Epson is going to exchange it with a new one. Not a refurb. Also it is only $299.95 including shipping from Epson.

a glutton for ink

Anonymous, Epson
28 October 2013
  • Summary: I have had several EPSON printers and scanners over the many years as a professional. (over 20) The Premium Presentation Paper MATTE, I used for over 20 years. Now, it's no longer available (according to EPSON) except - online. However, it does a bang up job - as long as you can find the media. Now on the other hand, GLOSSY is spectacular except it consumes almost 3x the ink as the MATTE MEDIA does.

Forced to buy this

Printer, Epson
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Unfortunately my 7 month old Dell computer crashed and they were unable to fix it. After 2 weeks of about 10 calls to and from India they sent me a new refurbished computer with Windows 8 even after I asked for Windows 7. My old Epson 1400 printer will not work with the new software I had to buy for Windows 8 so in order to print 13x19. I was forced by lack of updated drivers to buy the 1430.

Banding problems.

Thomas H., Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: I originally bought this off amazon but had to return it because of serious banding (horizontal lines running across my prints). I then went to Staples because I needed to print work for school but that one had the same problem. So hoping for a printer that didn't have that problem; I went to another Staples across town. Being optimistic, I bought the same model but turns out...it had the same banding problem.
