I previously had an EPSON R2400 printer. The R2400 was great, but I was continually having to buy new print cartridges because of their small capacity. My main reason for upgrading to an EPSON 3880 was because of the large capacity ink cartridges. B&H's discounted price on the 3880 cartridges makes my decision even better.

The cost of the ink is prohibitive, and for this reason, I will consider another brand in the future.

          Comments about Epson UltraChrome K3 Light Black Ink Cartridge (80 ml):

          Of course I buy this ink because it's the one made for my 3880, and it does hurt the wallet a little bit, but they're large, and last long. I have to say that I never have clogs or blockages, even after more than a month of disuse. It dries fast, is easy to replace, and comes from a company whose products I firmly believe in. I print fine art photos and illustrations which I sell as well as hang in galleries both here in NYC and elsewhere.

              Large reservoir so the cartridge does not have to be changed constantly (meaning more convenience and less wasted ink left in the cartridge).

                  The epson lineup of inks are wonderful. The large containers for the 3800 and the 3880 (as well as their larger printers) is perfect for my printing.

                  I do a lot of printing and appreciate that these cartridges last almost 3X longer than the cartridges with the R3000. And that brings down the cost of printing.
                  Wish they would last longer, but that is life.

                            These inks enable the photographer to make digital prints which are virtually the same quality, with beautiful shadow detail and great contrast. Just like the silver gelatin prints we were used to.

                                It is the best...but it's expensive. It does go a long way though, I can't say how many prints exactly...but surprisingly quite a few. Worth it in my opinion.

                                  For Epson 3800 and 3880. B&H offers these K3s at a great price! And the expiration date on the cartridge is way, way, way into the future, nice and fresh. B&H is the reliable source to keep feeding our behemoth Epson printers, which are always hungry for more ink.

                                  Combined with the other blacks it gives the closest to silver prints yet.

                                    The ultrachrome inks are the best Epson has. My first choice.
