Ink/Toner

Not leaving its users high and dry with lesser-quality ink systems, the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 has 8 individual color or function ink cartridges, including: cyan, magenta, yellow, matte black, red, orange, black, and gloss optimizer. The benefits of having such a modular system are obvious from the get-go: you can replace cartridges as they run dry, instead of having to replace the entire set. This will save you money in the long run, and eliminate a bunch of waste.

Media

Because the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 is a well-endowed pro-photo printer, it can handle a wide array of media, including just about any paper size out there that can fit in the load tray or spool, CDs and DVDs, and canvas in matte, glossy, and satin finishes. This is a true media maven we're talking about here.

Paper Storage

Paper can be stored in either the load tray, or the spool for banner prints. The load tray can hold up to 120 sheets of paper, depending on the thickness of it. Because it's a rather beefy load try, it can handle a good amount of weight, but try not to overdo it.
