Summary: I've owned this printer for a couple of years and recently bought a 2nd one. I do a lot of graphics and I'm real impressed with the quality of this printer from postcards to large format sheets of 13 x 19.
Summary: [Be sure to see my pictures of a CIS installed on an Epson 1400 in the product images above!] This is a modestly priced but serviceable mid-sized printer, aimed at the hobbyist market. I've had mine for over a year, and while a little frustrating at times, it does produce acceptable prints.
Great Printer (if you buy compatible inkjet cartridges)

Summary: Epson outdid themselves on this printer. I have owned 8 other Epson inkjets & their earlier monochrome Action Laser Printer. Utilization of the 1400 would be nightmarish if compatible inkjet cartridges were not available.
Summary: I print 100s of photos per year, mostly 8x10 or 12x18. I purchased the Epson 1400 printer to replace my worn out, but much loved, Epson 1280. The 1400 is faster, quieter, and produces beautiful color prints.
Summary: After my Epson 960 photo printer finally gave up (started printing with banding and other problems, and Epson never created a driver for Vista), I got the 1400. I print primarily 4x6 borderless photos for family, with the occasional enlargement.
Summary: I just bought this printer about a week ago, and have not had any trouble with the quality. When I was in college, and at my old work, I used other (higher quality) Epsons, and this one prints look just as good and with the price as cheap as it is, you can't go wrong.
Summary: I bought the Epson 1400, quirky but works fine. However, as a package deal, Amazon.com couples the wrong ink with this printer under "FREQUENTLY BOUGHT TOGETHER." #78 Ink cartridges DO NOT FIT into this printer. You have to buy Epson #79 for the Epson Stylus 1400.
Summary: I am no stranger to Epson photo printers having owned a Stylus Photo 1240 and a Stylus Photo R1800. As with its predecessors, the 1400 is itself a work of art. The prints it produces are sharp, vibrant, and lifelike.
Summary: This is my 2nd Epson printer in 7 years. My first printer was the Epson Stylus Photo 1280 (bought in 2001) and after 7 years of flawless service,..it finally crashed and it could not be resurrected. Nothing last forever, but the Epson 1280 paid for itself in print sales many times over.
