Epson Artisan 1430

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.

Epson Artisan 1430


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...

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...
