Epson Stylus Photo 1400

Big, beautiful, cost-effective prints, up to 13x19 inches

Other features include a PictBridge and USB Direct-Print connection for printing straight from digital cameras. The printer uses the EXIF image information—shutter speed, metering, exposure settings and resolution—to ensure the most accurate image reproduction. Image format is limited to JPEG, and Epson doesn’t guarantee compatibility with any cameras.

When printing from a Windows computer, Automatic Photo Correction can be used to enhance colors and sharpen and correct low-contrast or dark backlit photos automatically. This feature can’t be used with a Mac OS X operating system, however.

If you want to print customized text, graphics and photos directly on CDs and DVDs, the Print CD software makes this easy. Within 15 minutes, I had designed a custom label with text and one of my photos, then printed it on a CD. Nothing says you’re a professional like a custom CD or DVD.

An inkjet-printable CD or DVD must be used, though. Thermal-printable or regular disks shouldn’t be used with this printer. Epson also recommends that the images or video be burned on the disk first.

Short Report: Epson Stylus Photo 1400For the actual printing, a plastic CD/DVD tray is used. The tray can accommodate a regular 12cm disk or an 8cm mini-disk. Just open the front cover of the printer and insert the tray into the tray guide until the arrows on each are aligned, then print. Simple. Two minutes later, you have a finished CD or DVD. List Price: $399.
