epson is the only one

if you are printing photos Epson is the only ink to use. fade resist, light resist, true colors. Use any other ink and it shows you don't really know about permanance.

Price Is Competative

The ink cartridges are great and the price is competative. All of these type of ink cartridges are pricey though.

    Comments about Epson 96 UltraChrome K3 Vivid Light Magenta Ink Cartridge:

    I have enjoyed the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 and the inks. While they do not last very long (in terms of number of prints), the imagery is great and it's been easy to calibrate.

              The problem with inks for my Epson R2880 printer is that they RUN-OUT TOO QUICKLY!
              Either the configuration by Epson is inferior or they should redesign their printer to accommodate LARGER (and less expensive) ink cartridges.
              Printing with these Code 96 cartridges "seem" to be fine but there is not benchmark other than my own eyes to check as to whether one actually nedds a "vivid" magenta.

              Makes great prints. I use the 2880. Print mostly EPSON Ultra Premium presentation Matte and Ultra premium Luster. No 5 stars because I wish the cartridges held more ink, seem to burn up pretty quick, faster than I'd like anyway:) I keep at least 2 full extra sets on hand which runs about $200.
