After 1000's of prints, over 8+ yrs.(!!), my PHOTO R340 Printer, ejected its last print. I've wanted a 'large format' printer, for a while, and the Artisan 1430, is the perfect replacement. Test prints after set-up, were "outstanding"! If you're looking for a 'large format' printer, the Artisan 1430, will not disappoint!
I have used this printer for 3 months and it has functioned without issue for the uses I need. My main need has been in large 13"x19" prints and making labels on CD's/DVD's. To a lesser extent printing 8 1/2"x 11". My large prints have been very good with saturated color and fine definition but my greatest surprise has been in printing labels on DVD's. Previously I had used "Lightscribe" and these labels in full color are far superior and yet much faster to print. As with most printers that specialize in photo work, ink usage is nothing to write home about but that is to be expected. Overall I am very happy with this purchase and can recommend it.
This my 3rd Epson - 1st one died due to age - order replacement but didn't open until 8 months later (family & life issues) - Epson sent a replacement - not new and the replacement didn't work - paper feeder was broken
