Epson Stylus R2400 Review

By: James Tobias

Background
The Epson Stylus R2400 is a premier quality printer. It costs a pretty penny, but that's reflected in the quality of output you can expect, and the sheer functionality that comes with this market leading model. The award-winning unit prints in superior quality across both black and colour printing objects, and is ideal for both photographic printing and high detailed image reproduction. And it's no so bad for business printing either, churning out high quality, lightning fast letters and memos for professional use when it's not tied up in vivid colour reproduction. If you can afford it, this is the model that will make quality printing from home a reality.

Key Features
The most important feature of the R2400 is obviously its ability to print images and photos. The R2400 is specifically designed as a photo printer, which is easy to forget when you see just how impressive it can be in daily print jobs. Using 8 photo colour inks and professionally adjusted gradient for smoother reproduction, the R2400 is one of the highest quality inkjet printers available on the market, definitely within this price range. And unlike some of its competitors, replacement ink cartridges can be bought relatively cheaply and are easy to find online and in store.

Additionally for the art student or graphic artist, this printer can handle up to A3 sized paper in exceptional quality, which makes it much sought after in the industry along with its unparallelled print quality. That means for projects or concept presentations, the R2400 can handle all your needs in both colour and black with clear cut quality and strong responsiveness to tone and colour differentials.

Choose The Epson R2400 If...
If you are an artistic or creative professional that demands high quality image reproduction and quality photo prints. Ideal for professional photographers or designers, or those looking to be able to print off superior quality in both black and colour for business reasons.

Not For You If...
You only use your printer occasionally or for home use. This is a serious printer for those with serious printing needs. Unless you want to start printing industry-leading logo concepts or graphic designs, you'd be as well saving your money and leaving this one to the professionals and the heavy print users. There are several other photo printers further down the Epson Photo range which would be more than adequate to provide for the occasional or infrequent printer.

Conclusions
The Epson Stylus R2400 is more than just a printer. Unless you are passionate about photography or graphics and work within the industry, it's probably going to be hard to justify forking out on this one for a few photos here and there. However for those that are prepared to make use of their printer, such as professional photographers or graphic artists, this printer might just be the solution to your printing needs - quick, quality and intense colour reproduction at a reasonable price for the standard of model you can expect.
