Excellent color inkjet. This is my second C88+. First one failed due to serious jam caused by MY neglecting to open output door.(!) Essential to monitor placement of paper, to avoid ordinary jams. Would be helpful if could release roller pressure when attempting to extract jammed paper. If scraps missed are likely to jam mechanism which essentially kills printer because must be disassembled.( Not for the timid!!) Would welcome an updated version of this single function color printer. Willing to pay 20% extra for following improvements: Roller release Interlock to prevent printing if doors not open Drivers, for 64 OS. (Must use Win 7 default drivers only.)
The best feature of the Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer is that it prints on extra heavy paper such as 130# cover. The paper also lays flat after it has been printed. The worst feature is how it goes through ink. This printer is good for low volume-high quality printing. It is non-economical for large commercial printing.
We have had a number of different printers as we are semi-professional photographers and print our own prints. We have had Cannon printers and other Epson printers, but for the price, the Epson Artisan 1430 is by far the best with the fewest problems! We have yet to have a paper get stuck or any other problems that we have had with other printers. The ink lasts longer too. We highly recommend this printer!!
