Epson Stylus Photo R2000 Inkjet Printer
R2000 Photo Stylus
I originally purchased this to replace a previous Epson Printer that stopped working. Regrettably, Epson does not have a local store I could have taken it to for analysis. No matter, the other was old. At the time I was doing a church newsletter and had a need for a good printer. I use it now for all personal work, and the results it gives are really fine. Easy to work with.

I wasn't aware when I purchased this that there was a separate gloss optimizer cartridge. It was used up almost immediately, although the product description mentions "high-capacity" cartridges. 30 pages shouldn't exhaust a high-capacity cartridge. This has soured my otherwise favorable experience with this printer. The wireless feature is very convenient.

Superb color printer
This printer replaced a Stylus Photo R1900. With the R2000 Epson has corrected all that was wrong with the R1900. The ink cartridges last much longer. It also prints black on white pages faster. And, the ink nozzles no longer get plugged up. Like the R1900, the R2000 prints beautiful, glossy photos. I definitely can recommend this printer.

My R1900, which I bought after my 1800 gave out, recently went belly up after 4 yrs. of continuous printing. I work street fairs and art venues to sell my work so I needed to replace asap. The R2000 was delivered in a week and work flawlessly out of the box. Set up was fast and first print was right on the money. Cant go wrong if you need archival printing and beautiful color.

Setting up and using my new R2000 printer was easy and fast. Printing quality is what I expected.

Danged gloss optimizer
The prints are lovely, the color (once calibration is fiddled with), ditto. But why oh why, even when I take care to turn it OFF does the gloss optimizer spray itself all over my plain sheets of paper or rag paper, leaving them damp and making me spend extra money on another cartridge? Hate it. Also, inks are super-expensive.

I've had the R2000 for several weeks now and the prints are excellent. The color is excellent and what I see on my monitor (calibrated) is what I get from the printer. I an very happy with the R2000 and would recommend it to my friends.

Printer is awesome until 6 months or so into it. It slides over the paper and will not feed. The rubber rollers that catch smooth up and they do not catch it well enough to feed so it keeps spinning.

After some time with the printer....
Good unit. Colors are excellent. Resolution as expected. Black/White is not as good as color; contrast has to be jacked up to get best results.
Wireless operation good, once connected. Note: DHCP reassignment requires manual intervention. This can cause frustration, but Epson is not unique.
Handles wide/long paper well. Sheet-fed; have not had one mis-feed.
Note: keep papers in airtight package, i.e. ziplock, humid weather takes its toll on the fine papers.

It is great, it matches the color in Photoshop and it will take my 140lb Watercolor paper. I am a happy camper!!
