Epson Stylus Photo 1400 ink-jet printer

Epson’s Stylus Photo 1400 is a photo ink-jet printer that produces high-quality, borderless prints up to 13 inches by 19 inches in size. Designed to make your images pop off the page at larger print sizes, the 1400 also offers CD/DVD printing and the ability to print directly from your camera, all for $400.

Your projects are always ready to present. Display your work worry-free with smudge, scratch, water and fade resistant prints. Every print is sure to impress with auto color and lighting correction.

This high-speed, wide-format photo printer also offers value-added features like direct CD/DVD printing, so you can easily create professional-looking CD/DVDs for your digital files. Best of all, whether you print customized CDs or borderless, 12" x 12" scrapbooking layouts, the Epson 1400 makes it easy. Plus, it's fast, so you can move on to the next project in no time at all. It's all possible with this remarkable printer. Brilliant, large-size prints and beautiful everyday projects have never been easier. Realize your creativity with the Epson 1400.

Re: Epson Stylus Photo 1400 ink-jet printer

The Stylus Photo 1400 isn't slow, but it doesn't have the blazing print speeds found in some Canon and HP inkjets. Letter-size and 8x10in prints take approximately 2 minutes in high-quality mode, and 6x4in prints about a minute; a large, 13x19in print tumbles out of the printer in about twice that time, which is more than acceptable for a printer of this type.

  • Printing Technology: 6-color advanced DX5 MicroPiezo ink jet technology optimized for photo printing
  • Ink Cartridge Configuration: 6 individual high-capacity ink cartridges
  • Ink Type: Claria Hi-Definition Ink (smudge, scratch, water and fade resistant photos)
  • Light Resistance / Print Longevity:
  • -Up to 98 years under glass
  • -Up to 200 years album storage
  • Minimum Ink Droplet Size: 1.5 picoliters
  • Maximum Resolution (dots per inch): 5760 x 1440 optimized dpi
  • Print Speed: Up to 15 ppm black text, up to 15 ppm color
  • Direct CD/DVD Printing: Ink jet printable CDs and DVDs
  • Maximum Paper Size: Up to 13" x 19" BorderFree
  • Paper Sizes: 4" x 6", 5" x 7", 8" x 10", A4 (8.3" x 11.7"), letter (8.5" x 11"), legal (8.5" x 14"), 11" x 14", 12" x 12", B (11" x 17"), A3 (11.7" x 16.5") and Super B (13" x 19")
  • Borderless Photo Sizes: 4" x 6", 5" x 7", 8" x 10", A4 (8.3" x 11.7"), letter (8.5" x 11"),11" x 14", B (11" x 17"), 12" x 12" and Super B (13" x 19")
  • Case Color: Silver and black
  • Connectivity: Hi-Speed USB 2.0
  • Operating Systems: Windows 2000, XP, XP Professional x64 and Windows
    Vista Macintosh OS X 10.2.8, 10.3.9 and 10.4.x

Ink usage was decent: we got more than 100 letter-size prints on a single set of cartridges before we had to change an ink tank. The cartridges have a higher capacity than the ones Epson uses in its less-expensive printers, but are not as large as those found on more-expensive photo printers. Even if you use the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 for snapshot-size prints, however, you'll find that it uses ink more efficiently than less-expensive photo printers.

What we would have liked, however, is a better disc-printing utility than the one that comes with the printer. It is hard to use, lacks integration with other programs, and really isn't of the quality level you will be used to.
