Summary: The Epson Stylus Photo R2000's design "seems a bit too delicate," says Mike Pasini at Imaging-Resource.com (who otherwise loves the printer), although he doesn't say why. Other experts make no complaints about sturdiness, but we did find more owner complaints about clogged nozzles and breakdowns with Epson printers, including the Epson R2000, than with Canon printers. Most owners report no problems, though.
Pros: Very good pigment-ink photo prints, Can print on roll paper and large panoramic sheets, Fast printing, Chroma optimizer for glossy prints
Cons: Wasteful ink purge and delays during auto switching, More customer complaints than Canon
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
Summary: ConsumerReports.org cites this printer's price as a negative, including photo printing costs that are rather steep at 50 cents per 4-by-6 print and more than 7 cents per page of printed text. Networking support is suitable for a modern office, although the Epson Stylus Photo R2000 isn't as versatile as the R3000. A wireless card allows printing over a shared network, but there's no Bluetooth connectivity, which is typical of a desktop photo printer.
Pros: Prints higher-quality photos than competitors, Wireless networking capability, Prints on a wide range of paper and media
Cons: Not as versatile as higher-end models, Color accuracy is fair, Costs more than all-in-ones, Can't fax or scan

Excerpt: The particular new feature of the R2000 that was most attractive to me was that it could be connected by a Wi-Fi (wireless) interface.
