Summary: I had to upgrade from my old 1400 which recently died, but I love the improvements of the 1430. It was cheaper than buying another 1400, and I can use my Continuous Ink System from the 1400 with the 1430.
Excerpt: Can't say enough good things about this printer. Pro-calibre product, print quality is exceptional. Price is reasonable. Installs amazingly easy. Works with older as well as newer operating systems, both Mac and PC. Wireless. The perfect printer.
Excerpt: Love this printer, production and quality. If you are asking for fine arts reproduction, professional photography, this is the printer. I use mine for producing bookcovers, they turn out BEAUTIFULL. mY PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE was with two Epson 1400. I had them for seven years.
Excerpt: After using many other Epson printers, including a 3600 large format (which was used for almost 11 years, until it finally "Gave up the Ghost"). After some research and with trepidation bought the Artisan 1430 -Wow what results! I've printed photos from 4"x6", up to 11" x 17" all without a problem.
Excerpt: This printer family and inks are a great value for professional quality photo prints. I moved to this from a 1400 which lasted 8 years before the rollers hardened and I started to have feed errors.
Excerpt: This printer replaced an Epson 1400. I had the other printer since 2008 and live in the Southwestern desert region. With the dry air, the pinch rollers had hardened and I was forced to single sheet manual feed.
Excerpt: I never gave 5-stars to a printer because there are usually aspects within its usage that are done only satisfactory. The Epson Artisan 1430 is a high definition photo printer and it should be reviewed under only that guide.
