      Comments about Epson 157 Light Cyan Ink Cartridge:

      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 such as my R3000.

      As expected from Epson, working well. Good expiration date. But expensive when you consider wasted ink for priming

          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.
