The Epson Stylus Photo 1400 is a photo inkjet printer that produces high-quality, borderless prints up to 13x19in in size.

The Epson Stylus Photo 1400 is a photo inkjet printer that produces high-quality, borderless prints up to 13x19in in size.

Designed to make your images pop off the page at larger print sizes, the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 also offers CD/DVD printing and the ability to print directly from your camera.

The Epson Stylus Photo 1400 isn't the speediest photo printer, and the software for printing on discs is lacking in features, but the most important piece - the prints themselves - are rich in colour fidelity and detail, and they should last for a long time with proper care.

The USB-based Epson Stylus Photo 1400 inkjet printer sets up in a jiffy. The six ink cartridges (black, cyan, magenta, yellow, light cyan and light magenta) snap into place, and a single CD installs the print driver, CD-printing software, and manual. A second disc includes Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 <198>, which immediately saves you £70.

The Epson Stylus Photo 1400 has one top-loading paper tray and a front-loading slot for printing on discs. In order to accommodate 13in (33cm) wide paper, the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 measures more than 60cm wide, but the input and output trays fold up to keep the printer's footprint compact when it's not in use. Borderless printing is supported on a number of paper sizes, starting at the traditional 6x4in. Printing without margins is as simple as choosing the Borderless option for the appropriate paper size in the Page Setup dialog box.

Getting the best prints

Print quality is Epson's hallmark with the Stylus Photo line, and the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 doesn't disappoint. We printed test pages in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom and Apple's iPhoto and Aperture, and the prints were all top notch. Photos on both glossy- and matte-finish papers showed bright, true-to-life colours, with excellent shadow detail, and resistance to both scratches and moisture.

And, while the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 really is designed as a photo printer, you can print very good quality text documents too, which makes it serviceable as a general-purpose printer.

Print quality is important, but the Stylus Photo 1400 also produces images that will last, something that will appeal to both photographers and scrapbookers. According to the print permanence experts at Wilhelm Research, Epson Stylus Photo 1400 prints should last for more than 80 years when stored under ultraviolet glass and out of direct sunlight.
