This is my 2nd 1400 series printer-wore the other one out over 6 years. Love the 13 x 19-inch printing size. Love the 5 color cartridges. Love the new Wi-Fi ability. Love the ease of paper loading and replacing ink cartridges. Love new size of paper holder rack and larger size of paper print out tray. Very easy to use. Wish it had a smaller profile so I could take it to scrapbooking events with me. I create my 12 x 12-inch scrapbooking pages both for journaling and photographs. Also use it in my other crafting areas. Keep up the good work Epson.
I have used Epson printers for about 12 years, R 240, 260, about 3 R300 then the Atrisan models, using CISS inks systems. Firstly for printing my CD and DVD teachings etc. For cover design on my albums however none could print the size paper I needed for fill wraparound cover. This looks like it can work so will give it a good tryout.
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.)
