I have bought my share of printers and the Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet printer is the printer I have been looking for. The quality is fantastic and it is simple to manage and maintain.
I've had my V600 for about a month or so and used it to scan in old family photos and b/w USN ship photos. The results were very nice! Since I also have an Epson WF-7620 printer with scan features, it took a while to figure out which scanner was showing up and once I had this figured out, scanning the photos was a fairly straight-forward process. It isn't instant gratification, there is a learning curve, so you learn it and understand there is a time frame involved so grab a beer and do your thing! I will probably have this scanner ready for use for a long time now - it gets the job done and I'm pleased with the results. You will need to go to the Epson Website and follow their instructions for setup if you have MS Windows 10 OS on your computer - (bummer!). But, once it's up and running, it's good!
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.
