I purchased new, an epson 1430 Artisan printer and set up was easy as expected. I did a nozzle check and the head(s) were clogged. I cleaned heads NUMERIOUS TIMES to no avail. I now have cleaning fluid injected into the ports and am hoping this resolves the issue.
Good Reliable Machine that works with earlier MAC operating systems. I have two of these. Thank goodness this is still available so that users with power books and older vintage Macs have a printer driver that functions and they do not have to get new computers just because no printer interfaces with it.
I bought this printer because I am a graphic designer. I didn't really know what to expect, however when buying the printer, if not used in a little over a month the ink gets clogged and to clean the printer heads you waste most of your ink cartridges. I have three printers and this is the only one that this happens to. I had to request a new model when it was clogged and would not clean. However when this printer does print, the quality is impeccable. Amazing photos and pictures in general. If you are a person that prints all the time then get this printer.
I love my new Epson Artisan 1430! I previously had non-Epson photo printers, but had one problem after the other. I make my own photo cards, so a good printer is a must. The Epson Artisan 1430 is easy to operate, gives me beautiful photos, and does not rapidly devour the ink cartridges in the process. The printer is slow, but that's ok. I can give it a long list of photos to print and it produces while I'm busy doing something else. It's a highly reliable photo printer that gives great results, and I'm so glad I spent the extra money to get it.
