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.

        I use only Epson ink in my 3880. I don't need problems with my printer and I think this is one way to minimize them. The cartridges work, I have no problems, what's not to like?

            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.

                              In my experience, Epson inks and their 3800 and 3880 can produce beautiful prints.

                                  I am consistently impressed with the quality of the Epson inks. I've been using them in a Epson Pro 3880 printer without a single issue for a few years. The printer will occasionally sit idle for a month or more and it fires up without any clogging issues at all. I've never even needed to run a head cleaning routine. Two thumbs up for a great product!

                                  Just what you'd expect from Epson. Works great with 3880

                                    Epson cannot be beaten in delivery black and white digital prints.
