Very nice printer
Posted by: 3kidz from: murphysboro, il on
This is a very nice printer, prints are deep and rich with color, I bought this to replace my canon ix6520 which I became unhappy with the 5 minute nozzle cleaning every time I wanted to print, the Epson 1430 prints blow away the ix6520, when I compared the same photos from each printer, the canon ix6520 prints look like they have a haze to them and the colors are duller and aren't deep and rich like the Epson. The only down side to this printer is best buy only carries the black, magenta, cyan cartridge pack. I printed in color 8 11x14 prints and 200 4x6 prints on the best photo setting and it used half of the light cyan, light magenta, and yellow. Not to bad at all for these ink guzzlers these days. I print from lightroom 5 and found that I needed to use perceptual and not relative to get the right colors, as my daughter had a blue shirt on in a picture and when I used relative it came out purple. I have not printed a black and white picture as some people have said it doesn't print black and whites well. I will have to come back and update my post when I do. This printer does print well with canon papers, inkpress is lovely, and great with Ilford paper. I seen somewhere someone said it didn't print with Ilford paper well at all and I can tell you this is not true, I used the best photo setting along with the Epson premium glossy icc profile for both the ilford smooth pearl and inkpress luster and the results were perfect.

Fantastic printer at any price!

I now have three Epson photo printers. This latest one is the model 1430. It is relatively compact, thrifty on ink, and extremely easy to use. I have only one complaint. The information supplied on the Best Buy website stated that Adobe Software is included with purchase. I can not find it and no one seems to be able to help. I would like an explaination concerning the software. Thank you.

An excellent printer! It arrived when they said it would! This is the perfect all around printer for every occasion. I use it for printing pictures, making heat transfers/dye sublimation transfers & standard everyday document printing. It does it all, & it does it perfect! I highly recommend buying this printer!

Excels for its cost!

The Epson Artisan 1430 has excellent image printing quality. It really has gone over my expectation specially for the price. I purchased it over a month ago and its ink usage has been great. I just purchased a CIS System for the Epson 1430 since I do a lot of printing. Hopefully it will continue to print great images. I definately purchase more of these printers in the near future and would recommend for personal or business use.
