The Artisan 1430 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer from Epson combines fast 2.8 ppm ISO print speeds (black and color) with Epson's MicroPiezo inkjet technology and Claria high-definition ink to produce high-quality long-lasting photos. The printer's wide carriage lets you print large photos - up to 13 x 44" right from your own computer.

Thanks to the printer's compatibility with a wide range of media (including photo luster, photo glossy, photo matte, and presentation paper), you'll be able to print what you need in-house, right away. In addition to printing on standard media, you can print directly on inkjet-printable CDs & DVDs. Easily create your own custom CDs and avoid the hassle of having to attach a disc label. The printer even comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements so you can edit and fine-tune your photos before printing.

Besides a standard USB connection, you can connect to the printer wirelessly via Wi-Fi from a computer on your wireless network. Instead of buying a printer for each user, save resources - and space - with one printer for your whole network. Additionally, Epson Connect makes it easy to print from a wide range of devices including smartphones such as an iPhone or Android phone and tablet computers such as the iPad.

    Epson quality is still shining

    This is my third wide format Epson printer. I've worn out the first two printers. Still the same quality prints on most any paper. Really enjoying sing metallic paper now.

    Okay, so the printer is actually good. HOWEVER! The reason why I'm giving it three stars is because it took TWO replacement printers for it to actually work. C'mon Epson...y'all are better than that...

    The first time was because the paper + ink icons kept flashing at the same time (along with the power button). Turned out that was a "fatal" accident according to the customer service person. The second time was because the printer didn't recognize any of the new inks that came with it...so I tried with these other new epson inks I had, only to get the same result. Called customer service, told me there was something wrong with the printer yet once again. I'm just glad the third replacement printer worked...

    Hoping this won't happen to others, because it does become really frustrating...having to return + ship back (which is free btw) to FedEx Ground...and then waiting another week for the replacement to come...esp when you have a lot of projects...

    Anyways, now that I'm able to print, I'm actually pleased with the quality. It's better than what I expected. Easy to set up + use. The printing time is pretty fast compared to what I had before. Again, I'd give a higher rating if it weren't for the malfunctioning troubles.

    Comments about Epson Artisan 1430 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer:

    I use this for fine-art printing, using Epson Hot Press, Moab Entrada, Red River Aurora, Red River Luster and Red River glossy. Like my 1400, when I run out the Claria ink I will use refillable carts for a black-only workflow using QuadTone RIP. I haven't tried this yet with the 1430, though I'm told that the 1400 is similar enough to be able to share the same refillables. Anyway this 1430 sounds and acts very similar to the 1400, and prints very nicely. One nit is the wireless setup for a static IP was fiddly; it really wanted to use DHCP instead.

      Comments about Epson Artisan 1430 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer:

      I've only had the Epson 1430 for a week or two and have printed three times with it. In my professional work most of what I do gets loaded to a CD or DVD. When specialty prints are needed I send them out to a pro lab to be printed with pigment inks. However, I do kids parties and kids sports and print 5x7 and 8x10 for parents. My old printer was one of the HP AIO and never really gave me the options I get with the 1430. The dye based ink doesn't seem to clog as had been posted by many other buyers of this unit. Just for giggles I bought some 13x19 paper and printed a photo of my granddaughter I wanted to hang in my bedroom. Her mother scooped up the picture on her way out the door. Not equal to a pigment printer but does a really great job for average printing needs. I'm considering ordering another and dedicating it to B&W inks.

          Comments about Epson Artisan 1430 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer:

          I have been using ink jet printers since they were invented. I have an existing Epson R1900 printer that has performed admirably since 2009 but I am beginning to have problems with the sheet loader so.... I decided to purchase the Artison 1430 printer as a backup. After installing the printer, I printed a colored photo on Deluxe Matte paper. The print was "muddy" with no viewable detail. In addition, the photo was smaller than the paper sheet and the printer had sprayed ink on the print where there should have been no ink. I then performed nozzle cleaning and alignment. After completing the maintenance procedures I printed two additional graphic images, using A3 size and 13"x19" Deluxe Matte photo paper. Both images were blurred beyond belief. Needless to say, I am RMAing the printer.

              I've had this printer for about 2 weeks and love it. Easy to install and use. I print note cards to sell and am so impressed with the color and clarity. I've experimented with different settings so I know which one I like with certain colors & black & white. Haven't used it long enough to see how much ink it uses. I did buy a cartridge kit and a usb cable, since one didn't come with the printer. I'm all set and happy.

              Comments about Epson Artisan 1430 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer:

              This is my second printer. My first had a bottle of india ink spilled into it, forever putting black ink on everything I printed. I was so happy with it's performance, that I did not hesitate to buy an exact replacement.

              I've have had a little issue getting the color space dialed in. And with the small ink tanks that come with the printer, you can easily waste a portion of that just getting dialed in.

              Given the price of the printer, this is a good candidate for a CIS system. Especially if you print a lot of prints. Warning though, that takes a bit of trial-and-error to find ink that will be consistent, and accurate.

                I use the printer to print photos for framing and possibly sale. I use it connected using a wireless connection. I had to connect using a USB for the initial setup but after that I could get rid of the wire. I connected using an Apple system and then switched to a PC to do the printing. Colors are outstanding.

                The print quality of this printer is great. Black and white, and color look good. The ink is affordable for $22 a cartridge. Haven't been able to test the CD/DVD printing, or duplex yet.

                The one downside, the setup. It took quite a while for this to set up and get working. It didn't come with a usb cable, (which Epson recommends using one for the initial install) Install time took about an hour.

                If you're an artist, you will most likely enjoy this printer.

                  Easy set up with more paper options than the 1280. Individual inks are a plus but are very pricey. I use an Epson Workforce for every day copies and work.
                  Very happy with the print quality.

                          Very similar to a defunct Epson 1280 I previously owned for home use, right down to its revised software print interface. The 1280 worked well and I am equally happy with the Artisan 1430 printer, which is way more reasonably priced than the r2000,r2880,r3000 replacements that have higher ink costs, but which have other benefits. Installation via USB was very quick and I was printing only a few minutes later. Ink prices went up $[$]for the 6pk at B&H right after I bought the printer, wish I had bought more. Epson sent a 10% discount offer for EpsonStore purchases via email after I registered the product, I should have been able to use it on ink, but it did not work on EpsonStore, and email to Epson was not answered - perhaps it conflicted with free shipping discount.

                              Having used several makes and models of wide-format photo printers, I rate the Epson 1430 as excellent. Superb quality prints, comparable to printers costing twice as much. Easy to use, lots of features. I use it for photo prints, as well as for single-edition posters and display components. It's not small, but the paper extension supports all fold away, so it is relatively compact. Haven't found any negative or problematic things about it.

                              I had a Canon 9000 mark ii and now I have the Epson 1430. I am so glad I went to this one. All around a better printer.

                              This is an upgrade to the 1400, which I really liked. This printer prints on a larger variety of paper sizes than most printers and it prints professional ink jet dvd/ cd covers, which is a must-have for the wedding photos
                              I deliver to my clients. I also generate a variety of reports using MS Access and this printer accommodates those odd-sized reports - easily! This is my favorite and most versatile printer.
