Buying ink for a printer is usually not the high point of the day. But as a photographer, I am in constant need of quality ink, quality service, and good prices. I've been turning to B&H for all three for a long time. When I buy ink, I usually need it asap but more importantly, I need ink that has not been sitting store's shelves for months. Again, I go to B&H. I never buy ink anywhere else. Period.

this is the best ink for the Epson Stylus 3800 printer. however, it is very expensive. we print flyers in-house, and a box of ink runs out after only a few flyers. they end up being quite expensive flyers! although still cheaper than having them printed elsewhere.

    I only use genuine Epson ink in my Stylus Pro 3800 and B&H has the best prices, the fastest delivery and fresh ink dates. You can not go wrong by trusting your ink orders to them.

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

      Cartridge exactly as described: a geniune Epson product. Five stars because of the price; cheapest anywhere I could find inc. free shipping. Con: like many Epson cartridges I have bought elsewhere manufacturing date was a while ago: 12/05. So far that has not impacted quality ( I have one going back to 2004 bought elsewhere) in fact only one of my cartridges is anywhere near recent: yellow: 1/10. so I guess it's not a big deal.

        Great step forward.

        First Epson that I've owned that can go 1 year without printing and still no clogs.

        Great capacity and color. Colorfast >4 years and going.

          Lower level printers from Epson clog if not printed from every few days.

              Epson's Ultrachrome K3 inks, including light magenta, are part of Epson's excellent approach to color ink-jet printing. While the initial cost of this cartridge is higher than ink cartridges for smaller, everyday printers, its 80 ml capacity makes it seem to last forever. It's a bargain.

                  This ink prints beautifully, gives true rich color, and the cartridge lasts quite a while. It is a great product. It is costly though, as is most inkjet ink. Go with Canon brand though - never buy third party ink.

                        Very easy to install, and I am so much happier using these larger ink cartridges on my 3800, as the ink lasts much longer than my last printer.

                        I've looked into the 3rd party inks and yes, they save you some money - but let's be honest. Epson has a lot of R&D behind these inks and the quality is unmatched. I hate how it slowly drains my bank account to print with the 3800, but the lab was still more expensive, so there you go. I only left one star off because of the ethically questionable pricing and overall inkjet ink scam.

                        If you want consistent, archival quality prints, stick with the inks designed by Epson for the 3800. I have cranked out hundreds of perfect prints, and have had only had a few that didn't meet specs.

                        Good, as expected
