I bought this printer because I am a graphic designer. I didn't really know what to expect, however when buying the printer, if not used in a little over a month the ink gets clogged and to clean the printer heads you waste most of your ink cartridges. I have three printers and this is the only one that this happens to. I had to request a new model when it was clogged and would not clean. However when this printer does print, the quality is impeccable. Amazing photos and pictures in general. If you are a person that prints all the time then get this printer.
The best photo printer that I've ever had. I've had three others. Any size printing area from 2 to 13 inches wide. Really sharp Photo Printing. I have used this product less than a week, but have used other photos printer from Epson for about 10 years. (Artisan 50)
This printer puts out an outstanding color photo, which is why I use it. Before I had an Artisan 50 printer. Print quality was the same - outstanding. The first 1430 printer was defective and had to be returned. Epson promptly replaced it without a lot of hassle. The new 1430 printer makes strange noises so I am worried about the quality in the long term. I have owned a lot of Epson printers. I considered the C86, the C88+ and the R220 very high quality. I wore them all out after years of service. The new Epson XP-320 does a quality job but is noisy and I am worried about the long term reliability. Owned the 1430 for over 6 months.
