R2000 vs. 1400 vs. R3000
Nov 19, 2013

I just got my new Epson R2000. Great printer, though it refuses to wirelessly connect with anything! It's 4 feet from my system, so it doesn't matter.

My old 1400 still prints, though the feed is weakening. I also have a beautiful 11X14 from my friends R3000 that he gave me.

Using the same file I then printed on the R2000 and 1400.

Frankly the R2000 color print looked slightly superior to the R3000 for me, mostly because the blacks were doing something off on the 3000 that made them reflect oddly. In spite of the different inks (epson paper) the R2000 and 3000 had done about the same job for most people. The warm skin tones were deeper from the R2000, but again quite close. Mounted under glass they'd both be looked upon as excellent prints and could be tweaked easily to be even closer.

Next up the 1400 popped out a sample and it had more contrast and slightly inferior tonal graduations in the dark areas, especially where skin tones were warmest, but HONESTLY it was VERY close to the more expensive printers.

Finally: I tried a B&W print from the R2000 and am very pleased with the result.

Cheers,

Robert
