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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Does'nt do bad as a photo printer, I needed to print out a manual of about 140 pages, I actually had to push the paper feed reset button after every 2 sheets printed, I candcelled the print job, I ve got better things to do with my time.
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.
