Those of you with the Epson 2000P, do you use the roll of paper or the cut sheets? I've seen the info on the epson site saying you can use both semi gloss and matt paper sold on 8 and 10m rolls. Also if you do use the rolls is there a paper cutter or something on the printer? I'm very curious about this aspect of the 2000p as I'm considering getting one in the next few days.

I've used the rolls for some panorama prints that I've done at about 11.5" x 36." There is no paper cutter on this....which is a shame, because I do tend to waste paper. You are able to advance the paper and then pull it back to the original margin. It prints a dashed line at the end of your margin to give a guide to cut it at, but you have to use scissors. Not very convenient...I too wish that they had a paper cutter. The largest size flat paper is Super A3 in the cut sheets. If you want anything longer than that, you need to buy a roll.

The new printer and scanner are on the way and I can hardly wait for them to arrive. Gess it's going to take a few days to get used to the new equipment but I'm so excited.

OK Sanda, don't keep us in suspense. When you get them you will have to start a thread on your new toys and tell us all about them. Don't leave any details out.

The new toys arrived today, I didn't realize how big the 2000p is. with a little shuffling around I've managed to fit it in alongside my old printer. I think I'll keep the old one so that I can use it for everyday printing. That way I won't waste the ink in the 2000p. Does anybody else run two printers? If so how do you have them set up?
I haven't connected the printer or dcanner up yet I've been too busy trying to find the space for them. Oh yes the scanner is an Epson 1650 photo.
Looks like it'll be a late night tonight getting it allset up and playing with it.

I have a 1270 and a 760, Sandra. I have the 760 set up as my default printer for regular duty. It's a lot cheaper to run. And it saves wear and tear on the 1270.

I run them both usb.

I was thinking of running the 2000p in the USB port and the 760 in the serial port. Not sure it it'll all work though.

Enjoy the new toys Sanda

Like Sharon, I have an old Stylus Color 800 (default) on the parallel port, which I use for general work and the Photo 1200 on the USB port. Because of it's size, I normally only attach the 1200 when I need it. I can print to both at the same time, but have never found it necessary to do that.

Sanda, I run two printers from a single parallel port, using an A/B selection switch box to switch between them and this has worked very well....good luck!! Tom

I run the inkjet from USB and a laser printer from the parallel port. Pre USB I had an extra card which gave another parallel port but that set up was very temperamental.
