I bought this scanner to scan some old 6 X 9 Fujifilm Velvia 50 ISO transparencies. I have scanned them at 4,800ddDPI and saved as TIF files. The results have been excellent! The only "negative" comment I have is: I wish the film holders were more sturdy.
I have owned my Epson Artisan 1430 printer for about one year. I have found it to be an ideal tool for graphic design and photography work. As such, the printer provides me with dependably high quality print images.
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.
