Depth of Blacks

When you buy the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000, you're getting a solid pro-photo printer with a depth of blacks that borders on the extreme. With a measure of 2.88, the Stylus Inkjet R2000 competes well with other pro-photo printers on the market by providing exceptionally deep blacks, allowing for great contrast in your photos. More on how we test depth of blacks.

Detail

The Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 does a fairly good job of maintaining detail in photos as well as in gradients.

The Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 also handled gradients very well, showing no color banding or artifacting on all four color strips.

Sample Scan Comparisons

Detail preservation was fairly good with the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000, maintaining fine lines and sharp edges in the scans below. You can see that some detail was lost with the white hairs in the dog's forehead, and that the lines of the scan of Rosie the Riveter have lost a small amount of differentiation, but that's normal, and these are scans of fairly small areas.
