            Comments about Epson UltraChrome Photo Black Ink Cartridge:

            The Epson K3 inks as a whole, and this black ink specifically, are great archival pigment-based inks (not dye-based). The cartridges always work. The ink does not clog until you wait over 6 months between printings, and then a simple head cleaning works...as it *never* seems to do for simple inkjet inks. I just squeaked in 5 stars, despite the price (using all 8 inks as a set over about 120 8.5x11 pages makes it about 10x the cost of simple inkjet inks; a B3 print is stunning but very pricey). Then, if you love great prints, pigment is the way to go! Supposedly, these inks don't fill the full color gamut like even more costly inks do, but this rarely shows up.

                Comments about Epson UltraChrome Photo Black Ink Cartridge:

                I have been using the 2400 printer with photo black ink now for nearly 7 years. I have to say I have been thoroughly delighted with the consistent results and amazingly rich Black & Whites this ink set produces.
                I have to say the consistency is so important since I wait till the last pico liter is spent before changing cartridges, and every time has been a smooth transition from the old to the new cartridge.

                  I am a photographer and use Epson ink cartridges for printing photographs with my Epson Photo Stylus R2400 printer. The printer uses a lot of ink so I go through cartridges fairly quickly but I haven't had a problem with any of the Epson inks clogging or spattering prints. I will continue to buy Epson ink.

                    What can I say. I use ONLY Epson ink & paper in my R2400. The quality & results are absolutely incredible. Don't chance your work to imitations or 3rd party products. If you use this combination you won't regret it at all!

                      LIKE THE FACT THAT THE INK IS BUNDLED SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY THEM IN ONESY

                      THE INK IS WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. THE PRINTER COMPANIES COULD GIVE THE PRINTERS AWAY AND STILL MAKE A GOOD PROFIT.

                      AFTER MARKET INK IS NOT VERY RELIABLE FOR THE HIGH END PRINTERS.

                        I use Epson Ultra Chrome inks for all my photo printing on an Epson Stylus Photo R 2400 printer and the photo's really POP with color. H ave won 20 First prizes for my photograph's and I believe most of it is because of the way they come out looking using these inks and Epson Photot papers.

                          The Epson 2400 and its inks still provide an excellent benchmark for fine art printing, even after the introduction of the 2800, which adds a little extra gamut, and provides direct to CD printing, which has in the past been problematic, and is irrelevant to a printer in this class.

                          UltraChrome K3 Inks are the best!

                          If only Epson would provide or support a bulk ink method because the cartridges go fast. But there is no better quality ink.
