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 the 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 sure have many others that the Photo P produces excellent black and white prints on Matt paper, but Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer when you use Black Ink Only setting in the driver.

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.

But then again the Photo isn't truly accurate either. It does however have the advantage of being able to print on glossy paper, something by all accounts no archival ink is good at, certainly the Photo P doesn't even give it as an option. Media choice is via the usual Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer window and comprises four choices at least that's all I could find.

The Automatic setting works in the same way as it does with the Photo and the default setting of gamma 1. If you find yourself having to adjust any of the Epson Stylus Photo 2000P Printer by much more than 3 or 4 units then I really would question the accuracy of your screen calibration.
