Epson Stylus Photo R2000 Inkjet Printer
setting up stylus photo R2000
Not so easy. when installing software came upon a download for the machine. Nothing in the big sheet said to cancel it, so I downloaded it. Later found that I was supposed to cancel it. Then during installation I had to install 3 times to get the 3 main components. Also the paper holder seems to have a problem feeding a sheet, Maybe I need to load a lot of sheets. But no problem with the printing, so far. Results are very good. I had my stylus photo 2200 for about 7 or 8 years (maybe more) but all of a sudden it died. No repair shop within 100 miles

Great Printer But...
I bought this printer about 9 months now. It replaced my beloved epson 2200 (clogged head). The print quality on the R2000 is great whether you print color or B/W. I also love the fact that I don't have to change ink when I switch from glossy to matte. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the wireless network seemed to be flawed. While the light indicates that its working/connected, I get an error message on my Mac saying that it can't locate the printer. I solved this by deleting the driver and re-installing, but this is a pain as it's happened more than once on the same day. If this continues in the future I will have to use a wired connection for continued use. Now that defeat the purpose of buying a wireless printer. Otherwise the print quality is great if you can live with its sub par wireless operation. I recently change internet provider, but I doubt that has anything to do with it because it worked fine after I re-installed it on the new network.

its prints great and has good color blends only problem is the ink is $$$$ 35% more then the R1800 i replaced . Epson needs to get this under control. or people are going to go away from them.

Excellent for my purposes
This machine is excellent for my purposes. I will be having an exhibition of my work at a local store in a few days, and the R2000 is providing top quality prints for it. If only it would air print from my mobile devices, it would be perfect.

I bought this printer to replace my ailing R1900. I was very satisfied with the R1900 so I decided on the R2000, hoping it would be at least as good. After installing it and inputing all my settings (paper types, color management info, etc.), it was time for a test print. I have a scenic with a variety of colors and some difficult contrasts to get correct. So, starting with all color adjustment compensations set at "zero" (default), I let 'er rip. To my surprise, the print came out perfect. I mean PERFECTLY matched to my calibrated NEC 27" monitor! No further adjustments needed. Better than the old R1900
ever did, and it was pretty good itself. I am very satisfied with this printer.....and am hoping it lasts a long time.

I replaced a worn out R1900 with this R2000 and the upgrade is noticeable. Very nice function in the carriage and the colors are very bright. Good printer.

The printer seems to be working beautifully with respect to the color and print quality. However, when I print multiple copies, the paper feed often picks up 2 sheets at a time which is aggravating and slows me down. How can this be fixed?

Great printer, very happy with my 13 x 19 prints!
I bought the Epson R2000 to replace a competitive unit that I could not get to work reliably on my home office wireless network, and consequently have been able to compare high-resolution photographic prints produced by both printers. First impressions are that the Epson is considerably lighter than its primary competitor and requires a somewhat smaller amount of counter space (although both units are fairly large). Where the Epson excelled for me was in the ease of connecting to my home office network. It connected quickly and has maintained the connection for hundreds of prints. This is in complete contrast to the competitive unit, which I could never get to work reliably on my home network, even after contacting their technical support department (which is the primary reason I got rid of that printer and replaced it with the Epson R2000).
I’ve now printed about 200 photographic quality prints on the Epson and they continue to amaze me with their quality – comparable to a high-level photo lab. I’ve made scores of 13 x 19 prints and they look great, especially on fine art media provided by a certain German manufacturer (who, by the way, supplies ICC profiles that are very easy to use in Photoshop and enable one to produce superior results with this printer).
So, based on my initial two weeks’ use of this printer, I’m quite happy and very satisfied.
In terms of drawbacks, the R2000 gobbles “Gloss Optimizer” ink cartridges when making large prints at the printer’s high-quality settings; I’ve already gone through two of the GO cartridges and one cyan as well.

Smart & fast
A reasonably priced smart and quick printer. I usually have to tweak my color setting to produce a good looking print but this printer's settings get it right most of the time. The printer is quick and works well with different paper types.
