Doesn't like envelopes
23 January 2014
Summary: This is the seventh Epson printer we've owned. We literally wear them out. We bought the 2000 to replace a 1900. Everything about it is great except for printing envelopes. There is no setting for them like there was on the 1900, you have to go into user defined and put in the specific measurements of your envelope. Okay, we did that. Then the envelopes print out with smudges and wheel marks, not clean like they used to.
Summary: My r1900 broke down after several years of us. I custom make invitations and accessories and print on card stock and envelopes all the time. So I decided together the next model up, but the ink is almost double in price and I have trouble with feeding the envelopes and card stock. Many times I have to stand there and feed 1 piece at a time and push/help each through. Wastes a lot of my time!
Summary: I had an Epson R1900 for four years which I loved. Parts inside the printer were at the end of their service life and it would not work anymore. Since the R1900 was discontinued I replaced it with the R2000 as it was the comparable replacement model. I thought I would be getting the same quality, but the print quality is not nearly as good as the R1900. I'm not sure if it is this model or the printer itself but I am so disappointed in my choice to choose this printer.
Summary: I absolutely love the prints I get from this printer. I print both photos and graphic designs and the colors are sharp, vibrant, rich, deep and beautiful. It really looks best with Epson papers. I was extremely happy for about 8 months but then the printer started having paper feed problems. Thankfully it was still under warranty and Epson sent me a new replacement printer, which so far is working excellent. I use this printer as part of my business.
Summary: I bought this product thinking it would be an upgrade from the 1400 and the 1800. It's not. I was sorely displeased in the print quality, which was marginally the same, and it did not print on card stock as suggested in the printer specifications.
