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.
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 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.

Top customer reviews
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.
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. For my first effort I printed a photo that I took on holiday last year overlooking Zante Town in Zakynthos using my Pentax K5, I used the Epson Easy Print software and I'm very impressed with the colours and sharpness of this print, you could almost be there!! I printed on Epson A3+ premium gloss photo paper, I will have a play around with Photoshop 11 at a later date, but for now default settings seem fine.
This printer uses 8 ink cartridges, so ink could get expensive with heavy usage, I don't intend on buying non genuine cartridges as want a good quality photo output without any problems.
Build quality looks good and solid, for a new Epson that is, some of the cheaper Epson range leaves a lot to be desired in build quality terms, but the R2000 look more like the old school Epson's.
This printer will eventually replace my old R360, The R2000 prints on just about any media including CD's , roll paper for panoramic photos or banners and special thick papers which are fed from the front of the printer.
This is my first ever A3 printer and I am delighted with it, I can now print at lab quality on most media formats, yes it is a huge monster but the output quality is simply breathtaking.
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 service from amazon was first class.Epson Stylus Photo R2000 A3+ Photo Printer (8 Colour Ink System)
