Does anyone know if the print quality of the Epson R200 is the same as the R300?
The website show it using the same printer cartiage and same resolution?

As far as printing goes the R200 and the R300 are exactly the same. There are a few other features that the R300 haslike a built-in card reader, and picbridge, which the R200 does not have.

They are both very goodprinters for the money,I personally just purchased the R200 about 3 weeks ago and I love it.

I just bought an R200 alsoand the printer does have the front USB port I wonder if it does have pictbridge capability but the documentation has not caught up with it.

None of my cameras are pictbridge compatible so I can't test it.

The R200 is not Pictbridge.

The USB connection on the R200 is the same as on the RX500/600. It is the older Epson connection for a select few Olympus/Sony cameras and external drives/zip. But it does not support Pictbridge.

Also be aware the R200 is USB 1.1 only and not USB 2.0 like the R300. This is a commonly overlooked difference. However, I'd be really curious how this translates into real-world printer performance. I was leaning towards the R200 instead of the 300 until I found thisout. Not sure if you would ever notice a difference, but better safe than sorry.
