Epson Stylus Photo R1400
Epson R1400 - A3 inkjet printer announced
Press release:
Epson has launched a new A3+ six-colour photo printer, featuring Claria Photographic Ink for long lasting, borderless premium quality photo prints. The Stylus Photo 1400 is the successor to the renowned Epson Stylus Photo 1290s and offers more durable photos, superior image quality and faster printing speeds. It also features six individual ink cartridges, so only the colour that is used needs to be replaced. Direct printing onto CD and DVD faces is included for personalised archiving and easy identification of CD content. Connectivity support includes Pictbridge, USB 2.0 and an optional Wireless Ethernet Print server.

The Stylus Photo 1400 is equipped with Epson’s advanced Micro Piezo print head technology that delivers sharp borderless prints from 10x15cm up to A3+. It also incorporates Epson’s improved Advanced Variable-Sized Droplet Technology (Advanced VSDT) which provides more flexible ink droplet sizes and more accurate placement of the droplets. Together with six-colour printing, the result is even more detail where light colour and softer tones are required.

The Stylus Photo 1400 driver also supports Adobe RGB for a wide colour gamut. Additional colour output modes include ‘Epson Vivid’ ideal for presentations and graphs and Epson Standard for faithful reproduction of sRGB images. In addition, the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 allows advanced colour management with out-of-the-box ICC profiles for the Epson media range.

Epson PhotoEnhance automatically detects and optimises images according to subject type, for example, portraits, landscapes and sky lines. In addition it analyses and improves skin tones, colour casts or light exposure. The end result is optimum image quality regardless of experience in photo manipulation.

Mark Robinson, Product Manager, Epson UK says, “Epson has developed a new generation of affordable A3+ photo printer to meet the needs of the amateur photographer and photo enthusiast who want to print their bigger photos on glossy media. The Stylus Photo 1400 benefits from the superior quality output of Epson Claria Photographic Ink while offering an efficient and affordable solution for bigger prints.”

"Legendary" ?

In terms of determining the fate of nations... no. In the world of A3 inkjets, yes.

As with all Epson printers " Legendary " for costing an arm and a leg for Ink, AND Crap Customer service.
Have to admit, the 1290 is in my view legendary. an excellent printer. i have used two and have only great things to say about them.

Quote:AND Crap Customer service.

I have to refute that. Their Tech's were excellent recently. It's just their Warranty side that stinks.

Well I did not actually mention the technical department, Nor did I mention the Quality of print, But since this has been raised, Lets address it, Fisrt the Tech department, They need to be very good, they are trying to justify low standard products, And on the Quality, They may be great at printing " Arty Farty Fuzzy Pics " that are not Photo realistic, And you are wise to Buy 2 then you'll have a spare when they Skrew Up. I am sorry to say I own a Epson 2100, What a pile of Rubbish, Thankfully I now have Canon Printers, And they are Fantastic, Epson are Not what they once used to be, Full Stop.
Feel better now?

Great if only the nozzles didn't keep clogging. I do clean after clean after clean to free them. Record so far is 12 cleans before I can print. Aaarrrrrrrgh!!!

Just got the Epson R1400,
for the money it is a steal. I replaced my 1290s with it, its fast,very quiet,and produces amazing prints and the supplied profiles are very good.
