Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer Driver
I assume from this and the Epson specification that "Photo" is equal to dpi. As with Epson we find an option for preview images immediately before printing. The screen grab below shows the feature in use, but more details can be obtained in the Epson review.
I've read on various forums that the colour output from the Photo P can be less than optimal if printed through the default Automatic mode, and that best results are obtained using PhotoEnhance4. I didn't find this to be the case.

Okay the prints from these two modes differ, but not so that you would scream one or other was bad. Apparently Epson don't recommend this printer to those wishing to print "neutral" black and white images, and certainly I found printing greyscale prints something of an annoyance; they tended towards green under natural light and lacked a solid black.

Others have also reported this recently, so thankfully it wasn't just me rushing through a few prints without care. The issue of poor Black and white printing seems to have caught the attention of quite a few folk. Michael Reichmann at Luminous Landscape has been looking into Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer matter in a lot more detail than me, but like me agrees neutral black and white printing from the Photo P will be virtually impossible using the current ink-set.
We have both found as I'm Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer have many others that the Photo P produces excellent black and white prints on Matt paper, but only when you use Black Ink Only setting in the driver. For more details on Michaels findings see his review, the link is provided at the bottom of this page. Colour quality using the default Epson profile is reasonably good, but in my opinion lags slightly behind that of the Photo This is more down to the ink gamut of the Photo wider.
If asked whether the colours were truly accurate; the answer would probably be no. I would describe the colours as being softer, or not so saturated, with yellows being the most obvious causality. One thing I noticed, when you select Archival Matt the printer defaults to high speed bi-directional printing.
However, as soon as you select Semi-gloss high speed is disabled. This means bi-directional printing is switched off and print times go through the roof slowwwwand cannot be overridden.
I didn't wish to waste someone else's ink, so I only printed A5's, and at over 10 minutes this is twice as long as the Photo on normal speed. With semi-gloss the default setting for MicroWeave is Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer, but Epson suggest that you may wish to also select Super x if micro banding occurs. Users of the much older Photo EX will recall that setting, and there was me thinking it was gone for good with the introduction of the Photo Looking at the prints from the P and comparing with an 8 x Lupe; they more resemble the Photo in terms of dot size than Photo Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer Using Super x eliminates the little micro banding there is, but still doesn't make the final prints the equal of the Photo Mounting prints from all three side by side on the wall and viewing from a more reasonable distance more representative of the real world the Photo is still the best, but the margin is small.
I'm confident that most will generally find the overall image quality from the Photo P under these conditions to be more than satisfactory, and certainly the equal of many lab based photographic prints. Would I buy one?
The simple answer to the question "would you buy one? The printer is aimed at a very specific market; and since I'm not interested in selling prints it would be wasted on me. Okay year inks sounds great, but to my eye the Photo produces better looking prints, much quicker to boot, and at a lower cost.
