When it comes to printers I do have a preference, at least now I do. Since I’ve had an Epson wireless printer, I don’t think there’s any way that I’d go back to a wired one again, or a different brand either. Epson has done me right for so long now, and having the ability to print from my laptop or netbook anywhere in the house is a blessing in itself. The newest edition to the Epson Artisan line the Epson Artisan 730 keeps up to my expectations.
The Epson Artisan 730 premium home all-in-one printer allows you to print, and print FAST not only regular documents but also photos in hi-definition photo quality. Not only is this printer wireless but it also is equipped with Epson Connect which enables mobile users to print documents and photos directly to their printer from any mobile device! Epson Connect also allows you to Email Print, which means you can send an email directly to your printer and it will print out instantaneously.
Documents, and photos are one thing, the Epson Artisan 730 also prints directly onto CD’s and DVD’s. You can use photos, pictures or text and decorate your disc’s any way you’d like.
Although the printer is large, and I did have to move around some things to find some space, I love this printer all too much. The built-in Wi-FI Certified and wireless networking memory card slots makes printing so easy it’s amazing. There’s also a smart touch panel display on the front of the printer, so there’s no need to navigate options or settings from your computer.
Besides having amazing printing capabilities, you can also use the Epson Artisan 730 to photocopy and scan documents, to either print directly or store them on a memory card.
The most questions that I’ve ever had about any printer is about the ink. I won’t sugar coat it, there are SIX ink cartridges, but they are six color ultra hi-definition Claria ink, which gives you very vibrant color photos, and crisp, clear text, and they’re not cheap, but they do last a long time, I can attest to that.
Other features that you’ll find on the Epson Artisan 730:
• Built-in Auto Photo Correction automatically evaluates and corrects images – better than the competition
• Automatically removes red eye
• Easily brings old, faded photos back to life with convenient color restoration
• Advanced MicroPiezo® print head technology ensures sharp, accurate ink placement, while optimizing print speeds
• With “smart” nozzles, this powerful technology delivers droplets in as many as five sizes, some as small as 1.5 picoliters, ensuring remarkable precision, sharper detail and outstanding image quality – every print, every time
• Epson’s advanced MicroPiezo technology used in the Artisan series is the same technology featured in wide format printers used by professional photographers.
If you’re looking for the ultimate printer, that will do everything you need and more, I’d definitely look into purchasing an Epson Artisan 730, I’ve not had a disappointment yet, and don’t believe you will either. This would make a perfect gift for yourself, student, or anyone that has printing needs.
The Epson Artisan 730 retails for $199 and can be found at most electronic retail locations, but right now you can purchase this printer at a great price on Amazon.com.
