            Theses cartridges are for the Epson 2880 printer which I bought last year on sale. The printer is excellent, however uses lots of ink.

              I have an Epson R2880 and never thought I would use anything other than Matte Black, because I love the look of the Matte paper. But decided to try using the Photo Black with a Photo Luster paper. Wow! With this particular brand paper and the 2880 inks, the results blew me away! I am preparing photos for a local show and looking forward to it. B&H has by far the best price for this ink. Always pleased by my purchases, quality help from knowledgeable people and with prices that make it easier to keep taking pictures and printing them.

                  The blacks are phenomenal with this cartridge. I've been using this ink for years now and even on old prints the blacks are as rich as the day I've printed them. Very easy to load into the printer. ONLY problem is that it runs out too quickly but it could just be my printer and it can get pricy. But that's how it is w/ all ink I guess.

                            I'm a retired USAF writer/editor/photographer. I have been blown away by the quality of images that roll off my Epson Stylus Photo R2880. The outstanding look of my prints is due, in no small part, to my R2880's technology and the UltraChrome K3 inks. I've never seen colors come alive like this. My friends and pro bono clients are floored as well and tell me that the prints are why they look to me to print their treasured images. As my Grandson would say, 'This ink is the bomb!!' Oh, I almost forgot, I'm very pleased with the combo pricing at B&H.
                            Thanks,
