Color Accuracy

Compared to other pro photo printers, the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 can hang with the best of them here, although we recommend using the included color profiles from the printer instead of messing around with it too much. Convenient, right? More on how we test color accuracy.

For whatever reason, the printer does have a little more trouble with blues than other colors, but it's mostly an acceptable level of error.

Color Gamut

Much like the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000's bigger brother the R3000, this printer has a huge color gamut, resting at 69.12% of the Adobe RGB (1998) gamut. You should have no trouble recreating the colors of your choice with this printer. More on how we test color gamut.
