I ordered this printer one week before Christmas. After many years of great printing my Ebson R280 stopped printing good photos. I needed to finish a Christmas gift project, and had about 125 pictures left to scan and print. The Ebson V550 scanner gave me good pictures to print ,nice scanner . The Artisan 1430 came over night 3 days before Christmas . It was easy to install ,and the wi fi install was no problem. " I had it hooked up to two pc's. I was back in business and finished Christmas day. I was surprised at the quality of print , It's an Epson. The Artisan is a wide format printer also ,I can't wait to do some wide and large format prints. For the money I think this is a great printer and prints fantastic quality photo prints.
This is my second Epson printer -- my first (Epson 1400) was great, and I expect this one to be also. I routinely print 13 x 19 artwork and the results are fantastic. Highly recommend Epson products. The ink included with my purchase was a welcome surprise.
I purchased to update an older Epson scanner I have had for many years and would have continued to use if it would have worked with my new laptop. The V600 was easy to set up and has worked fairly well. It has locked up a couple of times. Also I have found it does not scan all size negatives easily.
This is my second Artisan printer for good reason. Epson, in my opinion, has the best quality printers on the market. This one works great. It's easy to set up and operate. It provides good color tone, prints quickly even with the largest 13 x 19 images.
