I've been taking photos and printing them for about 17 years. Mostly doing black and white emulsion and prints in my bathroom darkroom. About 5 years ago I switched to digital photography. Two years ago I purchased the Epson Stylus 1400 photo printer and began making prints. I've been very pleased with the color's I'm able to get from the Epson toner and paper combinations. Very rich and saturated and the blacks are black. My only criticism about the toner is that the number of prints you get out of one cartridge seems a bit low. But that seems to be the case for all printers I've used. And I understand printer manufacture's make there money on toner.

What can I say

I does what it is supposed to do. Never had any problems with it and the cost is reasonable.

    Comments about Epson 79 Black Ink Cartridge:

    I am an artist and am always looking for vivid colors and consistency. Epson 79 Black Ink is true to the core. I have been printing with the Epson colors for over 2 years now and wouldn't trade the quality for any other ink. The only downfall is that with all the printing I do I wish that the ink would last longer. It seems I am changing out my cartridges anywhere from 3-6 times a year depending on production. Other than that I highly recommend this product for any fine artists out there looking to reproduce their work! ~ A.M.

                        i have a large format printer and do alot of printing for myself and others.
                        The printing quality is very good.

                        I just wish it held more ink

                          I have now purchased 4 sets of the 6 inks that come with the Epson stylus photo 1400. I've priced at local stores and other site and B&H have no doubt had the best price for all 6 colors as a package.. I will continue to get them from B&H.. Thanks...
