Epson Stylus Photo 1500W review

 

Wireless A3+ printer that's great for glossy photos

Comparatively cheap ; Great on glossy paper ; 1.5pl drop size ; Good connectivity ; Fast and quiet

Small ink cartridges ; Black and white not so good

Although superficially the all-black A3+ Epson Stylus Photo 1500W (Artisan 1430 in the US) printer looks suitably different to the two-tone Epson Stylus Photo 1400, under the hood it's a different matter.

Epson Stylus Photo 1500W

 

An A3 printer for those who want giant photos printed at home.

Telescopic trays for small footprint ; PictBridge socket ; Full-bleed, even on large prints

Poor draft mode print ; Up to 40s pre-print processing ; Takes up most of a desk

Software support is basic, with a good printer driver, but little else. With a photo printer you don’t really need much else, as you’re likely to be using your image editor of choice anyway, and just need your printer to interface well with that.
