              Epson original inks ensure that you get the quality output that you bought your printer and papers. This magenta ink provides excellent color for the system.

                  THIS IS THE VERY BEST PIGMENT VIVID MAGENTA AVAILABLE FOR PRINTING PHOTOGRAPHS. tHE COLOR IS SATURATED. THE PIGMENT IS TRULY ARCHIVAL. pRINTED ON ePSON PAPER MAKES A FINISHED SURFACE THAT IS UNSURPASSABLE IN MY OPINION. THE BEST PART IS THAT ONLY A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF INK IS REQUIRED AND THE INK IS VERY LOW IN ITS NOZZLE CLOGGING TENDENCY.

                    I use my Pro 3880 for prints for sale as well as my own use and found the quality to be first class. The cartridges are large and therefore expensive but I get what I consider to be a reasonable amount of printing out of them. I would not trust aftermarket ink on such a high end printer although I don't have any experience with them. I have not experienced any clogged jets so far even though the the printer sits idle for a couple of weeks at a time. I would recommend these cartridges.

                            Prints are gorgeous, but I gotta wonder why this stuff is gone so quickly. I used a 2200 before getting the 3880 and thought these bigger ink tanks would last a long time. I may be printing more than I realize, but they seem to go dry just as fast - and now it's $45 a pop to replace....

                            They substantially add a kick to my prints
