Bought this over a year ago. Prints great pictures I like the DVD label printer part makes nice labels directly on the DVD! (of course you have to buy hub printable DVD's or CD's) once and a while the sheets don't come out to print not that it gets stuck I think I have to somehow clean the rollers so it will grab the paper better, I just hit the button to eject the paper then hit print again that works most of the time. Other than that it;'s a great printer, especially the glossy photo prints.
Purchased this to replace a Photo 1400 that was only 3 years only that had stopped feeding paper properly. Although I don't do that much printing anymore, when I do, it is mostly 8-1/2 x 11 and larger. I like that the 1430 takes the same ink and is functionally about the same, although it seems a little faster. The print quality is excellent, as has been the quality on the last 4 Epson photo printers I have owned back into the late 90's. If anything, the quality seems to get incrementally better with each generation of printers. Each new one just doesn't seem to last as long as the previous one. (The first one I had lasted 12 years.)
Bought new Oct.05, 2016 as a replacement for my 1400 which received extensive business use. Excellent printer in the price range. Use it to print professional reminder cards, business flyers, advertising and reminder Calendars.
This is my second C88 Stylus in 10 years. My first one just wore out. It does a great job for Cards, Letters & ppHOTOS EVEN IF IT IS NOT A LASER PRINTER. It so happened I had extra ink cartridges that were almost new so this way I do not have to buy new ink cartridges for quite a while plus I can get updated drivers for Windowss 7.
