Epson Stylus Photo R2000: A 13” Pigment-Ink Printer
1 March 2014
Summary: At the time I was finishing this report Epson was advertising a price with $150 off the $499 list price. Even at list, it is still the least costly 13” printer that can produce pigment-ink prints that will last a lifetime and more. I almost wish my R1900 needed replacement, so I could get an R2000, but this line of Epson printers is reliable, so I will continue to enjoy what I have.
Conclusion: If you’re finding even the more advanced home photo printers are a bit lacking, the Epson Stylus Photo R2000 is a good step-up into the more advanced capabilities that a prosumer printer offers. The eight colors of inks provide a wider color gamut than the typical four colors of a home printer, and can reproduce more subtle shades resulting in better looking prints.
Pros: Prints up to 13x19, Eight color inks provide wide color gamut, Roll paper capability at a reasonable price, Excellent media-handling options
Cons: Some of our test prints were noticeably light
Excerpt: Epson has been known for providing consumers quality economic choices when it comes to multi-purpose printers, but did you know that they also make some of the ...
Pros: Excellent print quality on all sorts of media big and small. Budget wide format printer is perfect for the budding photographer. Prints quickly and is a solid built machine. Reasonably priced for what it does.
Cons: Sensitive to incorrect paper placement which leads to paper jams. You must pick the correct paper setting on your computer before printing or it will lead to the printer just hanging.
Summary: The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 is a wide-format inkjet printer that uses seven pigmented inks to print beautiful color photos as large as 13-by-22 inches, and even longer if you use the included roll paper adapter.
Excerpt: The Stylus Photo R2000 is one of the cheapest printers in Epson's A3 range, although at £434, it still represents a substantial investment. It uses Epson's UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2 inks and takes eight individual ink cartridges. This includes both matt and photo black, plus the usual cyan, magenta and yellow inks, with the addition of red, orange and grey cartridges.
Epson R2000 review: An A3+ photo printer with Wi-Fi, and it can print panoramas

Summary: Epson's Stylus Photo R2000 is capable of handling the needs of photography enthusiasts who want to print their digital images in A3 or A3+ sizes. The roll paper feed means panorama printing is a breeze (although there's no automatic cutter to ensure maximum paper savings). Print quality is as good as Canon's mid-range A3+ model -- unless you're looking for microscopic detail you'll be more than pleased with the R2000's output.
Pros: Excellent print quality, Up to A3+ sizes and roll paper support
Cons: No roll cutter, Inks are expensive (although not for a photo printer)
Excerpt: The Stylus Photo R2000 A3+ printer sits just below the R3000 and R2880 in Epson's A3+ high quality photo printer range. It's the successor to the older R1900, which bagged a Digital Photo Gold Award in Spring 2008. With many of the same features that made the R1900 such a good product, as well as a greater range of connectivity options, the new R2000 looks set to be another top choice.
Excerpt: To be clear, the Epson Stylus Photo R2000 isn't a ground breaking product. It uses the same ink as the R1900 it replaces, but with the AccuPhoto HG technology, print quality is improved with better tonal gradations. Both Ethernet and WiFi are new and welcome options, but perhaps the most welcome new feature from my perspective is the larger capacity ink tanks.
