Setup & Manuals

Setting up your printer is a relatively straightforward ordeal, but be prepared to have blue tape and plastic everywhere. Once you take your behemoth out of its box, set it up on whichever surface you'd like to keep it on with the power cable and whichever means you'd like to connect it to (is you're using USB or ethernet). Once you've installed your ink cartridges and installed your software, you're almost there. After setup is complete, you're ready to go.

While installing your drivers, you'll notice that there's an option to install an electronic copy of your manual onto your computer, and we suggest you install this to help you unlock the potential of your new printer, as it's got a bunch of tips and information that will help you operate and maintain your new purchase.

Drivers

The drivers for the Epson Stylus Inkjet R2000 are relatively straightforward, much like the rest of the Epson lineup. Though they have several options for peper sizes, print quality, layout, and the rest, many of the options you see in the driver windows will be left alone unless you need to switch to document printing or something similar.
