Epson Stylus R2000 Inkjet Printer Review
If you're looking for a pro photo printer, seriously consider the Epson R2000.
Photo Print Speed
At a decent clip for the highest quality setting, the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 takes only 41.8 seconds per 4 x 6 inch photo print. It does take a considerable amount of more time to print on larger surfaces though, so we also clocked the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 in at 80 seconds per print with 8 x 10 inch media, and 219.4 seconds per 13 x 19 print. Considering the type of printer this is, that's above average in terms of speed, though it doesn't perform as well as some of the printers more geared towards office work. More on how we test print speed.
Document Print Speed
When it comes to document printing, on the other hand, the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 is respectably fast. Even on the highest print quality available, your printer will have no issue dealing with churning out pages at 2.04 times a minute. Should you need to get your pages out faster with a small dip in printer quality, you can always drop the quality in the drivers menu to increase print speed up to 4.7 pages a minute. More on how we test print speed.
This is probably a good time to warn prospective users that the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 defaults to photo quality prints when you give it a print job without any special instructions. As a word of warning, please make sure you select "plain paper" before printing documents, otherwise you'll blow through the gloss optimizer cartridge extremely quickly.
