Summary: Knowing nothing about printers except the small cheap kind everyone gets when they first go digital, I was fortunate to buy this one when I started doing a bit of photography and figured I wanted my work to "jump" off the page. I do lots of photo editing as well and I print from different programs, i.e. Adobe Lightroom (the BEST!) and Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, FX Home, etc.
Summary: The Epson 1400 ink-jet printer is a mid priced printer with high end results. Capable of doing prints as large as 13"x 19" The quality of prints fall just short of gallery exhibition prints but outstanding prints none the less for professional looking finish. Well suited for professional photographers making their own prints. Capable of quality using the Cobra ink jet system, making it economical with outstanding quality.
Works great, multiple uses, great price, great product!

Summary: You can't beat the price and value of this printer, you can use it for screen printing, dye sublimation, regular printing, and much more. Being able to print on 13" wide paper is great for projects, presentations, screen printing, dye sublimation, etc. Great value, great deal.
Summary: This is a really good photo printer! I had a Epson R300 Photo Inkjet Printer and it was on its last leg. Found this one and installed it! Once again wonderful Photos. Now I can even print large photo's! Printer installed on network in minutes! Easy to install!!!
Summary: This is my second such model. I favor it because I need the option of printing up to 13x19 images. The first one I pretty much "printed" to death, though it likely could have been overhauled. The quality is always excellent, even in the largest size. Naturally, in order to be truly cost effective, I STRONGLY!! recommend using a Continuous Ink System (CIS) with tanks that hold much more ink than cartridges.
Epson 1400, price, print quality, and ease of use.

Summary: When purchasing a printer I needed to buy one that would do a little larger prints while still being in the price range of a desktop printer. The Epson 1400 prints 13x17 which is the largest size I needed. I also needed an Epson because they accept the CIS (continual ink system) which allows me to save money on ink when I print in higher volume. The Epson 1400 is easy to print with and comes with a cartridge which lets you print directly on CD's and DVD's.
Summary: I bought this printer for the 13"x19" size photos. The photo quality is excellent. With the luster paper I have recieved professional results. I use it to print my photography and mixed media art projects. My other printer is an HP which is good, but this is better. I hope to buy another epson in the future with a yet larger printing area. I would definately purchase again.
Summary: This is a very good photo printer for the price. I caution you that it likes ink....The quality of the printing is directly related to the quality of the photo paper you use. I use epson 4 star presentation paper in a matte finish.
