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.

Epson Stylus Photo 1500W


good quality prints I do use it often to print A3 pictures as i am a photographer. Decent amount of pictures printed from the ink supplied and with having 6 colours gives a more true colour reprodution. not as good as my wide format printer but then it...

only thing i find is that it is slow to start up but thats all. It is slightly bigger than your normal desk top printer,not a problem for me but consider this if you have a small home office
