Was excited to get! Needed poster size printings and was tired of paying big $$ when I could do it for much less. Set up was very simple. Was able to start printing with in 10 min. The 13 x 19 prints were absolutely beautiful! If you need large print or even printing on CD/DVD's, this printer is a serious printer to check out.
The Artisan 1430 looks and acts simpler than my 8-year-old R1800 that it replaced. Images are Epson- grade (superior). They still seem to be having a little trouble with paper-handling, though. Every so often, the 1430 will go into exaggerated paper-grabbing motion, reminiscent of the R1800. It seems to be another printer that you wouldn't want to simply load and walk away from. If you're making limited-edition high-quality prints from art or photos, this printer is a good choice.
I bought this printer to replace my old Artisan 50 which was several years old. The set up was very easy, even on my android phone. The print quality is great on both color prints and documents. I have yet to try the 13 X 19 size paper, but everything I printed up to 8 1/2 X 11 is great. I printed on a CD yesterday for my grandson and it came out dry, ready to use and looking like a factory printed label.
