Product Description

Epson Stylus Photo R2000

Versatile, convenient and high quality A3+ printing.

Print superb glossy photos, fine art, scrapbook pages, presentations, text documents and more at up to A3+ size with the versatile Epson Stylus Photo R2000. The R2000 uses Epson’s UltraChrome HiGloss2 pigment-based ink to bring you long-lasting high quality results across a wide range of media, from cut-sheet and roll papers to fine art media and even CDs/DVDs

Go large with economical cartridges.

At 17ml, Epson’s ink cartridges for the Stylus Photo R2000 have been increased in capacity by 50 percent, making them the largest in their class and so more economical in use. This allows you to print large projects such as panoramic images, calendars and photo books more easily and thanks to Epson’s individually replaceable colour ink system, you only need to replace the specific colour that’s been used, saving money and minimising waste.

Print wherever you like.

Compared to rivals, the Stylus Photo R2000 has the widest range of connectivity choices. It supports easy-to-set-up Wi-Fi connection, so you can position the printer wherever is convenient, as well as having Ethernet network and direct USB connections. Printing from digital cameras with PictBridge is also supported.

Print from whatever you want.

With Epson’s iPrint app you can easily print to the R2000 straight from your iPhone or iPad, as well as from Windows PC or Macintosh computers, so there’s no need to copy images or documents over to a computer before you can print them.

Dual Shift Shake Reduction

Precision printing with Micro Piezo printhead.

Whatever you print, and whatever you print it from, high quality results are assured thanks to the combination of Epson’s inks and Micro Piezo printhead. With a class-leading minimum drop size of just 1.5pl (pico litre – one thousand millionth of a litre), coupled with a best-in-group addressable resolution of up to 5760dpi, the R2000 printhead is able to provide the highest precision and detail in text and graphics while rendering smooth and subtle gradations in colour photographs with lifelike fidelity.

Vivid and lifelike colours that last and last.

Epson’s UltraChrome HiGloss2 ink offers vivid and realistic colours through its pigment technology, which leads to longer-lasting – 80 years on Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper under display conditions – and more durable prints than dye-based alternatives. The eight-colour inkset includes red and orange for natural-looking skintone reproduction, with accuracy and consistency.

Deep and even gloss

Prints made with the R2000 benefit from the highest-possible gloss thanks to a clear gloss optimiser in the UltraChrome HiGloss2 inkset. This is a high-density transparent resin coating that gives you a durable, ultra-smooth finish with uniform reflective characteristics across all ink colours and densities.

Flexibility in media handling

The R2000 brings full freedom of expression thanks to its support for a wide range of media including cut-sheet or roll papers in gloss or matte finish as well as fine art paper and other thick media. It can even print on suitable CD/DVD media too, via a special included feeder tray.

Epson’s technology.

Epson’s Micro Piezo printhead technology gives you reliable, high-quality results that can’t be matched.

Micro Piezo works by applying an electric charge to piezoelectric elements, which causes their shape to change. This creates a pressure wave that propels the ink. Thermal-type inkjets used by Epson’s competitors work by heating the ink, causing it to expand and move through the nozzle to be fired onto the paper.

The fundamental problem with thermal inkjet technology is that it’s less robust – the ink has to survive extreme conditions, and the heater is prone to burning out. Boiling ink can leave residue deposits on the element, which over time means the printer becomes less efficient.

Avoiding all these pitfalls, Micro Piezo technology operates at room temperature, offering greater ink stability and delivering perfect control over the size and placement of each ink droplet. This enables precise and repeatable printing in which every print will be the same as the first. And, as the Micro Piezo printhead is a permanent part of the print system, unlike other manufacturers’ printheads, it is one less consumable to dispose of. Finer details with variable-sized droplet technology.

Every nozzle in an Epson printer can produce different droplet sizes. This is called variable-sized droplet technology (VSDT), and is made possible by the Micro Piezo component. In the Stylus Photo 1400, the minimum droplet size is 1.5 pl.

Coupled with an addressable resolution of up to 5760 x 1440 optimised dpi and Resolution Performance Management, Epson’s multiple droplet sizes result in smoother gradations when printing areas of varying tone, with smaller droplets adding clarity to fine detail. Another advantage is faster printing, with bigger droplets printing large areas of colour more quickly.

I bought this to replace my four and a half-year old Epson Stylus Photo R800. My primary use is for printing photos and also, importantly, for printing on thicker card as I make hand made greetings cards. My old R800 could just about manage to take cardstock, (although it wasn't designed for the task) but it was a real pain and very time-consuming as I used to have to coax each sheet of card through. When the R800 died, I opted to buy the R2000 because it is specifically designed to take thicker card and is marketed as being for scrapbookers.

The R2000 was a doddle to set up, and the print quality is fantastic, both for photographs and for text, which looks as good as the output from my laser printer. I am over the moon with the way it handles card. I can leave a stack in the paper tray and it prints each one beautifully with no manual intervention from me. It's also very quiet! Be warned that it is a big beast, but it prints A3 so that's to be expected. I haven't tried roll paper or feeding from the front on very thick card, or printing on CDs, so I can't comment on that.

If you want superb photo printing up to A3+, or the ability to print on thick card, I highly recommend this printer.

I had several different 'photo' printers in the past, an Epson R300, R360(still going strong) and a Kodak all in one, which we use for general printing as photo quality is poor. Being a keen photographer I wanted to upgrade to an A3 or large format printer to get real impact to photo's, and reading reviews both here and around the net the R2000 looked like the one for me.

First impression are just how much bigger this printer is than a standard A4 printer, it's around 2ft long and with the feed tray and output tray open needs at least another 2ft in width, it also needs space at the back for the CD printing tray and paper roll feeder, so make sure you have enough desk space or table for this beast, it is also fairly heavy which is not a bad thing. Being wireless at least you can put this printer anywhere in the house or office, as long as it is in range that is.

The R2000 was fairly easy to get running, unpacking involves removing lots of blue tape which hides in some awkward places, just follow the supplied instruction carefully and you should have no problems.

I connected this printer to my wireless home network, again follow the instructions closely here!! The printer was up and running within half an hour of unpacking, I have 2 laptops and 1 PC connected to this printer through my wireless network and experienced no problems with the software set up. One point of interest is I use wireless G for my network, it states on the Epson spec that this printer is wireless N, so must be backwards compatible.

So what is print output quality like you ask, well it is simply amazing.

I have been looking for some time now for a printer to replace my H.P.printer,and as I wanted a WIFI printer and one that would print up to A3 size,and with more than 4inks it came down to the Epson R3000 and I was about to order that model all be it it was a little more than I wanted to pay when I found the R2000 with almost the same spec as the R3000 but £200. cheaper,It was due to arrive on the 12th December 2011 but arrived on the 10th so that gave me two extra days to use it.
The setting up was o.k. but you could not rush it,I have now printed a number of photographs and I could not have wished for better results and the gloss finish is in a class of its own. I have printed on all different weight paper and finishes and all are far far better than my old H.P.

If you are looking for a WIFI A3 printer why spend about £598. on the R3000 when the R2000 will do the same work for £398.

The first printer had to go back. Prints on semi gloss paper were coming out with a slight scratch on the image the entire length of the long side of the paper. Matte paper was fine. Spent far too long using Epsons online chat trying to establish what the problem was. They eventually decided it would need to be returned. Amazon immediately sent out another which has so far proved to be ok.

I say reluctantly only because of the cost of the ink, and the frustration when changing one ink cartridge drains the others with ink charging. But I do stick with Epson because the quality is outstanding. The R2000 was a replacement for a 7 year old R1800 and they are much the same, except the wi-fi.

When I first set up the printer, on XP, the wi fi was simple to set up and worked first time. New pc running Windows 7 and I still haven't managed to get the printer working wirelessly yet.

You still need a printer cable to connect the printer to your computer/laptop as part of the wi-fi set up.

I find the automatic power off timer irritating and will be uninstalling it once everything else is working.

Worth downloading ICC profiles for any paper that you use other than Epson for best results.

If the ink was half the price, I'd love this printer.
