Product Reviews for Epson Stylus Photo R2000 Inkjet Color Printer (Brand New)
from Lansing, Il on 8/2/2013
Received this printer as a birthday present from my family. It's photo reproduction quality far surpasses my previous (2 letter brand) printer. Having worked in photography for years, detail is very important to me, this printer will not disappoint. It set up easily, and I find the Wi-Fi feature a huge plus. Being able to print larger then 8X10 is another plus. What a great gift, Thanks to my Family. PS: I'm also the satisfied owner of a Epson V600 Scanner that serves my needs very well.

Very positive -- I had been using both the 1280 and the 1400 but this is faster and more efficient and you can print a wider variety of images/paper types etc.

This printer gets a better color gamut with the extra red and orange inks but the cartridges are twice as expensive as the Stylus Photo 2200 for the same amount of ink. The heavy paper feed is not functional with a hand cut edge on the paper. It needed a commercial cut edge. So saving paper from a big sheet is very difficult when re-feeding the paper after cutting off the printed part.

I've been using the R2000 for about 1.5 years. I'm actually on my second R2000 because the first one was having paper feed issues about 9 months after buying it. Epson replaced the printer under warranty and the new one worked perfect for about 4 months and now is giving me paper feed problems again. Thankfully I was able to rig it with double sided tape and it works much better (the little wheel that grabs the paper in isn't grabbing the paper well and the printer thinks it's out of paper - the double sided tape helps it grab the paper). Anyways, when it does print, it prints amazing beautiful!!! The colors are rich, vibrant, bright, gorgeous. I have no other complaints other than the paper feed issues. I use this printer for my business in which I sell graphic designs, stationary, invitations, etc and the quality is definitely great enough to sell my work. Photos look amazing. It sucks up ink like crazy. I personally would recommend this printer if you are using it for "light" personal use. I would not recommend it to use as a high volume printer because it just doesn't seem to be able to handle the workload, which might be why I have trouble with it (plus the ink issue!!).

8/1/2013 UPDATE:on different papers and ink usage LUSTER - produces beautiful prints, love this paper. Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte - also produces beautiful matte photos Fine Art Watercolor - The texture I create on the computer really shows on this paper and looks like it was actually painted. Fine Art Velvet smooth - Beautiful prints DASS Transfer film - this is the best transfer film around and works beautifully in the R2000 with no â€œwhite leadâ€� needed. Basically every kind of paper Iâ€™ve used in the R2000 comes out gorgeous. ROLLED PAPER -I purchased the 8.3â€� x 32.8â€™ premium luster roll paper and it was fairly easy to use and produces beautiful prints, great for panoramas. FYI - this printer doesn't cut the roll paper for you though. You must hit the "roll" button and it moves the paper forward until you can see a dotted line where you should cut the paper. You'll then need to do another cut to make your print even, then take out the roll and cut that end to make it even before you can use it again. That's the only thing I can complain about on this printer. I think any machine that takes rolled paper should have an automatic cutter on it. INK USAGE- In the past with other printers I always dreaded running out of ink and sometimes didnâ€™t print my work because I new I was running low and would have to purchase more expensive ink cartridges that wouldnâ€™t last long enough, but now I donâ€™t worry about ink, not only are the cartridges reasonably priced, I donâ€™t have to change them every time I turn around. With my R2000 in the last 14 months, I've only changed "all" the cartridges 2 or 3 times. I seem to use a lot of CYAN in my prints though so I've changed that cartridge probably an additional 2-3 times by itself. Considering how much printing Iâ€™ve done over the past 14 months I think thatâ€™s excellent. Iâ€™m always printing these days and itâ€™s wonderful. To sum up: Well a year makes a lot of difference sometimes, but not with this printer. I'm not only still happy with my R2000, but am still singing it's praises to whom ever will listen. I still highly recommend this printer to anyone who wants beautifully stunning prints at 13â€œ wide or smaller. My next printer purchase will also be an EPSON.
