I give four stars because of the price, otherwise the K3 technology is great. The high price is an issue for all things "inkjet" these days, especially the high-end printers...Read complete review

great color, lousy duration

Epson R3000 colors are beautiful but they don't last long enough and therefore cost a heck of a lot.

                    what can I say the Epson inks are great. I've used them on my R210 and 4880 and now on the new R3000. They are consistant from batch to batch, who can ask for more.

                        Pricey.
