Epson Stylus Photo R200 Test Report

 

The R200 photo printer was thrifty with ink, and its photos looked wonderful--but its plain-paper output wasn't impressive.

Epson Stylus Photo RX500 review

 

Epson Stylus Photo RX500

Easy to use; reasonably priced; excellent scan quality; good photo print quality; useful slide/negative scanning adapter.

Slow print speeds; only fair text and graphics print quality.

The Epson Stylus Photo RX500 is an excellent all-in-one photo printer for digital-photo enthusiasts who need both a film scanner and an occasional photocopier.

Epson Stylus Photo R2000

 

The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 ($499.99 direct) is, for the moment at least, the least expensive of Epson's high-end, near-dedicated photo printers, defined as printers that are meant primarily for photos and graphics, even though you could use them for...

Fast. Low price. Impressively high-quality photos and graphics. Prints on cut sheets up to 13 by 19 inches. Fine art papers available

Lack of a rated duty cycle makes it unclear how much you can print per month without shortening the printers' useful life

The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 offers speed and output quality suitable for professional photographers and graphic artists at a price suitable for serious amateurs.

Epson Stylus Photo R200

 

Epson seems to be on a crusade to make printing on CDs and DVDs a standard feature across all price ranges of ink jets. Witness the Epson Stylus Photo R200, a $100 (street) model with CD-printing features heretofore found only on $300 models. The R200...

Produces very good photos and prints; easy setup; prints to CDs

Slow at times

The Epson Photo Stylus R200 is one of the better choices for a tight budget.

Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000

 

If you're looking for a pro photo printer, seriously consider the Epson R2000.

Decent detail performance; Prints better photos than peers in its price point.; Can print on a decent range of media

Not as versatile as its big brother, the R3000

If you’re looking for a pro photo printer, but don’t want to have an initial sunk cost of near $1000USD, seriously consider the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 for your printing needs, as it offers performance at a price point that won’t destroy your bank...

Epson Stylus Photo R2000

 

Imagine going into a car dealership and seeing a line of nearly identical cars with a wide range of sticker prices. Where would you begin to sort out the differences?

Prints up to 13 inches wide ; Excellent price ; Superb image quality ; Compatible with fine-art papers ; Prints to roll paper, CDs/DVDs ; Wi-Fi support

Costlier ink than competing models ; Inks aren’t optimized for black-and-white prints or matte photo paper ; No LCD

Looking to step up to wide-carriage printing? This $499 model is an economical way to big, excellent-quality output.

In general, I don't write reviews of printers unless there's really a compelling story to tell about them. The Epson Stylus Photo R200, like all Epson R-series printers, combines standard photo-quality printing with the ability to print directly on...
