Summary: Great image printer for a 6 color machine. 1.5 picoliter droplets insures that you will get great gradations. I have two of these. One for Color imaging and the other converted to an all black image printer utilizing 5 black ink in three shades and one cool tone and warm tone black. The 6 position uses a gloss optimizer for gloss and luster papers. This is a wonderfull printer that is easily converted to 3rd party refillable and CISS.
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. However, the cost of operation is a wallet breaker.
Summary: I purchsaed this unit as an upgrade to my Epson r380. I wanted to be able to print larger (up to 13") without the higher cost of the higher end units. This unit has fit my needs perfectly. Print speed doesn't really affect me, but I know it is not the fastest. I only use it for the big prints and use another printer for smaller stuff. I did notice that the R1400 prints darker than my R380.
Summary: I bought this printer for use in my home bakery. lthoughink s costly (edible ink), the printer is a bargain. Very reasonably priced. It does print large photos as well as iron ons and lots of extras. The only con woud b it's size. It s huge! BUT considering the fact that it is a large format printer, guess you have to expect that:) Overall, great buy for the money and works well!
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. This machine slurps the inkjet at an alarming rate, but the quality is to be commended. Luckily I found a supplier of quality ink jet cartridges at a reasonable price ($6.
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. "It was not made to print black and white" is the mantra recited by the support staff at Epson when you call, trying to figure out how to print B&W pictures without a green (and occasionally magenta) colorcast.
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. But I am a fussy enthusiast who has owned 15+ cameras over 35 years. The print colors are excellent -- better than the 960, and I thought the 960 was quite good.
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. I got some quotes from commercial printers who would print on an Epson for $30 a print! I would have spent as much get portfolio pieces as I would have from just buying this printer. Ridiculous.
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. I got caught to the tune of $66.67, don't let it happen to you. Hopefully Amazon.com will rectify this situation soon.
Summary: I bought it because I needed a printer that could print 10x13 envelopes in color, that was not too expensive, and that worked under vista, which my hp does not. I don't particularly like or dislike it, although it was failing to cooperate when I tried to print some regular letter envelopes last week. I currently have 9 printers, 7 of which are connected up to 2 different computers, and they serve different functions.
