Epson Artisan 1430 review

 

The Epson Artisan 1430 is an affordable specialty printer designed to print high-quality photos.

Affordable wide-format printer ; Six color inks ; Excellent quality on photo paper

No media card slots ; Poor output quality on plain paper

Epson’s Artisan 1430 is a perfect step-up printer for users who do a lot of photographic printing and feel restricted by affordable home printers limited to 8.5 x 11 inch or 11 x 17 inch output. The six-color ink system provides an excellent color...

Epson Artisan 1430 Printer

 

The Artisan1430 is Epson's impressive, entry-level, tabloid-size (13x19inch), desktop printer. The low-cost 1430, which comes with a free copy of Adobe Elements, is aimed at photographers who are on a budget but still demand consistent,...

Low-cost printer; high-quality results

Expensive for high-volume production

The Artisan 1430 is an excellent value for low-volume, professional-quality prints.

The Epson Artisan 1430 is a decent pro photo printer with great software and media options.

Can print on a huge range of media., Comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements

Somewhat narrow color gamut., Print initialization very annoying

Overall, the biggest thing you get out of the Epson Artisan 1430 is value. While you may not expect to associate that with a rather expensive printer, you do get a lot of performance bang for your buck, and you also get fantastic software along with...

Epson Artisan 1430 printer

 

A dedicated A3+ photo printer used to be a product limited to only the most passionate photographers. Bulky, expensive and with limited functionality compared to the army of multi-functions on the market, the A3+ photo printer was never designed to be...

Beautiful prints; vibrant colours; detailed blacks; easy to set up

Leaves streaks printing large borderless prints; ink is pricey

Having a dedicated photo printer is a great way for photographers to showcase their work, and the Artisan 1430 offers fantastic value for money. It struggles to create borderless prints at large sizes, but given the price, that can almost be...

REVIEW—EPSON ARTISAN 1430 printer]

 

This A3+ (33X48cm) printer is one of the least expensive printers in this format. It uses six ink cartridges of the Epson Claria dye type ($27 per cartridge or $140 for the “value pack”) which the company claims will give prints with a fade-free life...

Colour prints, particularly on premium glossy paper, are good. We found it easy to match the monitor and printer images and with a calibrated monitor there should be no frustrating and expensive waste of ink and paper in getting the print right. Detail...

While colour prints are generally good black and white is disappointing. Every attempt we made to produce monochrome prints resulted in an ugly cyan cast over the entire image. Checking the grey-scale box in printer controls doesn’t help. Results on...

This is a good printer for the price, although in the US it is $180 cheaper and comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements included on the software disc. For anyone wanting good quality colour prints, but not prepared to spend another $1000 for a pigment...

Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer

 

An affordable A3+ printer for photo enthusiasts and small businesses that occasionally require large, high-quality prints.

At $399, Epson's Artisan 1430 represents very good value for money for enthusiast DSLR photographers who would like to make big prints of their best colour pictures. However, its expensive, low-capacity cartridges make it a relatively poor choice for...

The pro-level A3+ format photo printers may still be a bit pricey, but it still delivers plenty of performance.

Great improvement

 

After working with the Epson 1400 for years, I\'m happy to finally have a more reliable version of it. The 1430 is faster and I experience less paper jams.

Excellent Value

 

This printer has been the best purchase I've made in a long time. The quality is very high, from smooth and easy paper feed to brilliant printing in both color and b&w. Large single color areas show absolutely no ink discontinuity under a magnifying...

I was happy to receive this printer for my birthday in May but ever since I have been having problems with the 12 x 12 Matte paper. its seems that when the spools want to pull the paper I always end up pressing the garbage can button over & over...
