I switched to R1900 from Epson 2100 (Epson 2200 in US). Some would say it was as a step backward, but it was not. Yes 1900 does not give such nice matt on black and white prints, but in exchange it offers very realistic and fidel colours plus nice halftones. It is as good as my old Epson 1200 as far as the colours are concerned but is much better in halftones. The gloss is nice, but gloss cartridge empties very quickly. In general the cardridges are more expensive than for 2200 (I always was buying the 2200 cardridges for my 2100 printer, much more than twice cheaper !). Also it seems to me that 1900 cartridges are lower capacity than 2200, although I did not find confirmation of it anywhere. Note: for best colours print from Epson proprietary software, I never obtrained as good colours from Photoshop printing despite of extensive fiddling with colour profiles and set-ups. Epson software pring equaly well Adobe and sRGB images !.

Recently purchased the R1900 printer for photography printing. There are two problems with ink cartriges. Colors are sometimes on back order and there has been difficulty with the cartriges not working after a few days or the empty cartrige light stays lit on the printer, even after a new cartrige was added. This has happened with a few of the colors. Photo Black, Cyan, and the gloss. Epson has been contacted regarding the problem. Uncertain if the flaw is in the ink cartriges or in the printer.

    Comments about Epson 87 Photo Black Ink Cartridge:

    I recommend this ink and the Epson R1900 for anyone looking for professional and affordable printing. Actually, the prints I make with this system are better than any prints I have ordered from pro photo shops. You just have to know how to color correct.

    Comments about Epson 87 Photo Black Ink Cartridge:

    It fit into my printer, just as described. When I printed my photo, I was pleasantly surprised that it printed black instead of yellow, cyan, or magenta. Highly recommend this ink instead of using a marker to draw in black parts of your photo by hand.

              Comments about Epson 87 Photo Black Ink Cartridge:

              I'm professional artist and document my work by scanning both color slides & black white film into my computer. I have found that unless you can afford a lot extra software beside Photoshop Elements, you can't get true rich blacks or whites without an overall cast of blue or other colors. Very frustrating.

                      Comments about Epson 87 Photo Black Ink Cartridge:

                      The cartridges are very easy to replace. It seems as though the cartridges run out a little quickly, but I don't have anything to compare them to, so I'm not 100% sure.
