              Comments about Epson UltraChrome Light Light Black Ink Cartridge:

              I print my own color images on high quality fiber based inkjet papers for fine art purposes. High quality ink that is most of all archival is therefore key. Epson UltraChromes are pigment based (not a dye!!!) which makes them archival and a recommended product for any photographer.
              Color brilliance is superb.
              The multitude of colors and shades thereof (5 colors/shades & 3 shades of gray) codes for great detail rendition and colors that are true to the subject.
              The fact that each color is available separately is a major plus. I make a lot of print-outs and tests to get one print perfect, comparable to the intensity of working in the darkroom with test-strips etc., with this ink set-up I am enabled to react to shortages individually +++

              Negative is that the inks are somewhat expensive. Although they last fairly long when printing in the range of 8x10s to 13x19 the comparably small amount of ink contained means frequent replenishment. However, the only cure for that is a more expansive, larger format printer as ink get less expensive with increase in size. This in turn means at least $1000.00 more investment for the printer. That's just up to the consumer then.

              Overall I do recommend this product highly. The performance is generally up to very high standards!

              Godspeed!

                    I have tried third party ink cartridges with my epson printers and they were a huge disappointment. Muddy colors and lack of contrast. So I am a loyal epson buyer and very pleased with the quality of their inks.

                    The Epson R2400 Printer is a great printer. I only use Epson ink although there are cheaper products available. I have never had a clogging problem even though I have left the printer idle for 4 months. Just switch on and off she ran a perfect test print.

                    Light Light Black Ink is the most used of all the inks, be it a color or mono photo being printed.

                      The photos and colors produced from these inks are incredible. I prin onto canvas and the response I get from people is, "are these artist paintings?"
                      The blacks do seem to scratch easier than other colors, and I would like to get more out of a cartridge, but over all, I'm very satisfied.

                          I get beautiful, long-lasting, color accurate results with my R2400 when I use the K3 inks. Price is good when inks are purchased in bulk here and much cheaper than running a wet color lab. No complaints.

                          Comments about Epson UltraChrome Light Light Black Ink Cartridge:

                          Epson's Light Light Black allows a better separation of high values in an image and does it with more consistency than do aftermarket ink sets. And B&H, as usual, gets it to you on time and for a good price. You can't beat that for value!
