The artisan 1430 is an excellent printer, whose capabilities far exceed the price of the machine. Prints wonderful photos. You do not go broke in the process, everything you require to print are all very reasonable in cost. I am a high volume printer my cost has dropped very much since using this machine. Thanks Epson for a wonderful product.
WHY DOESN'T EPSON MAKE SOME PROVISION REPAIR THE PRODUCT. I CAN NOT FIND A C88+ REPAIR SHOP. I AM FORTUNATE TO FIND A REPLACEMENT. I BELIEVE ALL MY PRESENT ONE NEEDS IS THE HEADS PROPERLY CLEANED. MACHINE CLEANING DOES NOT DO IT. MY COMPUTER RUNS PERFECT. ALL MY BUSINESS IS IN THE COMPUTER. IT IS A MAC OSX 10.4.11. YOUR NEW PRINTERS WILL NOT RUN ON IT. A NEW COMPUTER WILL LOOSE MOST OF MY RECORDS.
This is highest resolution flatbed scanner in this price range and the software for converting PDF to .txt files is very helpful also. Epson is running all over HP with their scanners and Inkjet printers. I would recommend this product for anyone working with Photoshop of any level.
Would have given this product Four Stars, but for the maddenly SMALL ink capacity. When you print proof sheets like I do, you're going to be replacing the (expensive) in cartridges so fast that you can cancel you gym membership!! If this machine only had larger ink cartridges had larger ink capacity, it would be PERFECT. But as you know, this is precisely how printer manufacturers make their moneyâ€" by selling expensive ink cartridges. The fact is, Epson should give you the machine FOR FREE, for this precise reason. I tried the next machine up for it's HUGE ink capacity, but the machine was TEN TIMES SLOWER to print than the 1430, and cost nearly as much as a used car. To help my bottom line, I'm just going to buy those refilled ink cartridges, they work just as well, and don't cost you an arm and a leg.
