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!!
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.)
I bought this one to replace an Epson 1430 printer. I hate the way Epson shuts down the printer when something starts to wear. I wanted to at least remove the ink from my old printer before junking it! Any help??
I purchased a R280 and followed with Artisan 710 and I think they are great printer for my personal use. Over the past year, my friend who also used Epson printer gave me an R1900 and Artisan 1430 because he purchased 2 new Epson printers. I have never owed any other printers except Epson printer. As you can tell by the models, there are old units but they are working very, very well so reliability is not an issue with Epson printers. If any of these printers fail, I would not hesitate to buy another Epson printer.
