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.
Epson makes one of the best inkjet printers that money can buy in my opinion. I do a lot of graphic artwork which if Im not making a sticker out of vinyl then I am normally having to print a vellum to make my screens for the silk screening process. This printer is very functional with exceptional print quality. It is very easy to set up and definitely user friendly.
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.
