          Comments about Epson 157 Matte Black Ink Cartridge:

          You really need to use Epson ink for advanced photo printers? What would the point be in risking an expensive printer with cheap knock off ink? This works well for matte and art papers, but the printer does waste a lot switching from matte to glossy

          Comments about Epson 157 Matte Black 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.

          For me, this is the most commonly used ink out of the nine required for the Epson R3000. I always keep an extra on hand. Great for photos on Glossy paper.
