Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Reviews

Shutterbug reviews the Epson Stylus Photo 2000P and writes;
“It is very significant that they further refined their target market and applied a major research and development effort to develop pigment, archival inks, and papers specifically suited to professional photography and fine art printing. The result in the affordable $899 Epson Stylus Photo 2000P opens a significant potential for any photographer selling prints or making prints for fine art purposes as well as any other application demanding archival longevity, to personally and digitally control the quality and style of what they produce photographically.”

Creativepro reviews the Epson Stylus Photo 2000P and writes;
“The 2000P wouldn’t amount to much if its print quality were sub par. and here the printer excels, even with the radically different ink set. With the new paper types, it is nearly impossible to see dots, and it is worth noting that 8-by-10-inch images printed from the current crop of 3-megapixel digital cameras looked quite good and natural.”

Imaging-resource reviews the Epson Stylus Photo 2000P and writes;
“I’ve been very favorably impressed with the Epson photo printers I’ve tested to date. The 2000P cedes a little to the best dye-based printers in smoothness of gradation and visibility of ink dots in quarter tone and shadow areas, but produces very smooth gradations in the highlights. Its unadjusted color and tonal rendition is also a slight notch below that of the best dye-based models, but effort spent optimizing the output via ICC profiles and/or manual tweaking is richly rewarded. There’s no question that the 2000P can produce “gallery quality” prints, and its extraordinary print life makes it ideally suited as a final delivery vehicle for commercial and fine art photographers.”

Epson Stylus Photo 2000P User Reviews

Great printer for artists
“I bought this printer to make prints of my original watercolor paintings at home. The quality is incredible. When the prints are printed on Epson’s watercolor paper, I can barely tell the difference between the original painting and the Epson print! The printer is expensive, but is paying for itself very quickly. You need to read the manual and use the right paper for each job, and you’ll be very happy with the results. “ – by wyanne thompson

Wonderful prints, good cost
“This is a great printer for someone looking to do professional quality prints without the $1700-$2200 price tag. While you will go through a full ink cartridge learning it’s ins and outs, it’s not really that difficult to understand. It’s ability to print full bleed at any size up to 13 by 44 inches (by .01” incriments) is quite usefull, particularly for the digital photgrapher. And artists looking to add great print quality to their portfolios can forego the high cost of 8 by 10’s with this (15 pieces and you’ve broken even). The possibilities with the Epson 2000p are near endless. “ – by Jason Pedersen

Very happy with the 2000P
“I’m not a professional photographer, but I am a serious scrapbooker and photo enthusiast. I bought this printer for its archival ink and large format, and I’m very happy with the prints I’m getting. It is somewhat sensitive to matching the paper setting with the paper, but once you get the right combination you get fabulous prints reliably. I’ve used it a lot lately in printing pictures from a 4-week trip to Europe, and it does seem to go through color cartridges quickly but the quality is worth it.” – by A Customer

Fantastic Photo Printer
“I just purchased this Epson Photo 2000P and have to say that the quality is fabulous. I have to say that I do have the latest Nikon Coolpix 5000 (5 Megapixel) camera which I am sure also leads to great quality. I have had several HP Photo printers and was very pleased with them. But the difference between this printer, (which is expensive but well worth it) and the HP’s is like comparing a Rolls Royce to a basic car. The basic car will do the job but won’t provide the exquisite quality. The HP will print smaller prints very well. The Epson 2000P truly makes brilliant large prints. This is a printer for someone who really wants fantastic high quality prints with beautiful detail. Ideally you will also want a high end camera to ultimately get the incredible prints.” – by A Customer

Have to see it to believe it
“After working in a wet darkroom for the last fifteen years, I couldn’t believe that a digital printer could do better. I was wrong. The prints are beautiful. They are easier to correct that in a conventional darkroom, and I no longer have to turn down jobs for only one or two prints. (When you put $50.00 worth of chemicals into a proccessor, you want to do more than that.)It is just a little slow compared to my Epson 870, or tne Canon S800. But the quality is unreal.” – by Keith Lawson

Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Inkjet Printer
“Like new.Perfect shape and only 5 months old. All Epson papers work on with this printer. You can print from 8X10 to 13″X19” size prints.The color is spot on and the printer itself is very easy to use from turning it on to changing inks. I am selling it because I am a professional photographer that shoots and prints in black and white primarily and I have found a new black and white printer that was made exclusively for black and white printing only. I can also ship it in its original box. “ – by A Customer

Always Epson
“This printer can do composites as well as postscript printing using a ripper. This printer is great for anyone doing professional desktop publishing of any kind. I also recommend purchasing Epson StylusRIP software for doing any postscript work or vector graphics (printers cannot print PS or vectors without a RIP and not all printers can understand RIP, but this one does so well!). The printer works on USB and the ripper works on parallel so switching between them is so easy. I also noticed this printer doesn’t run out of ink as fast as others and with the extra colour it gives very realistic outputs. “ – by Vanessa

“There simply is no better ink-jet printer for photos at any price.Simply print a Black and White photo on Epson premium paper at high res. and you too will be a believer. Yes, you have to use good paper, and you must calibrate and profile the printer to your scanner and monitor. There are other brillant color printers and other borderless or wide format printers, but if you are a photographer of any skill level, you know how important shadows and shades of gray are to contrast values. This is the printer.” – by E. Fusco

Well, seven years later (2007)
“As for the “green cast” issue, I solved that accidentally a long time ago: simply load your black and white files but PRINT IN COLOR. For some reason you will get neutral black and white pictures with no color cast. I have no idea why, but it works. Print it as “Black and White” on the settings and you will get the color cast. I have seen no one else notice this, but it is absolutely true, and I assume that there is some glitch in the software somewhere that is responsible for this anomaly. “ – by J. L. Kelly

Features & Specifications

Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Features

The Epson Stylus Photo 2000P inkjet printer was specifically designed with the professional photographer in mind. Providing quality printing for archival photo reproduction, it prints borderless, edge-to-edge images on sizes up to 13 x 44 inches. You can print in six rich colors using drop-on-demand Micro Piezo inkjet technology, and Epson’s archival ink with MicroCrystal Encapsulation keeps colors long lasting and fade-resistant. Plus, you won’t be caught dry, thanks to automatic low-ink detection.

This printer has an optimum resolution of 1,440 x 720 dpi for both black and color pages. Completed images arrive in under four minutes when printed on matte paper, and under six minutes when using semi-gloss sheets. While it can handle plain bond paper, it functions best when used with professional photo papers, including archival, glossy, watercolor, and radiant white matte. Maximum paper capacity is 100 sheets or ten envelopes.

The Photo 2000P printer is compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems, which it accesses via either USB or parallel connections. It measures 21 by 30.3 by 16.3 inches and weighs just 18.5 pounds. A standard one-year limited warranty is included and supplemented by the Epson Exchange Program.
