The Artisan 1430 A3+ printer follows on from the Stylus Photo 1410 and a long succession of six-colour dye-based models from Epson. Apart from the provision of a Wi-Fi connection, little has changed technically from the 1410, but there has been the considerable drop in the price, now down to an affordable $399. The Artisan 1430 is an all-black, boxy machine with some rounded edges and a small silvered panel incorporating the On/Off and other buttons.

It is a solid and well-constructed unit in the usual Epson fashion. The paper feed tray slides out from the rear while the eceiving tray comes out from the front and, in its extended position, slants slightly upwards to help contain prints. Apart from wireless networking and mobile printing, there is a PictBridge connection for direct printing (including from a smartphone or a tablet). Incidentally, in some markets this model is called the Stylus Photo 1500W.
