I am blown away by the quality of HiRes scanning. I have been scanning old family photos, and when I set the scanner to its highest scanning ability I have been able to print old grainy sepia tone images, which were originally 5 x 7 in size, to large format beautiful b/w images with great detail! I LOVE this scanner!
I replaced an older HP scanner with this and have been thoroughly pleased. It is not a full bed scanner when using the transparency hood, but worked well for 620, 120 and 35mm slides and transparencies. The color correction on faded slides and photos did an amazing job. I have been able to reduce boxes of old photos and negatives to a folder on my hard drive.
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.
