I print my own color images on high quality fiber based inkjet papers for fine art purposes. High quality ink that is most of all archival is therefore key. Epson UltraChromes are pigment based (not a dye!!!) which makes them archival and a recommended product for any photographer. Color brilliance is superb. The multitude of colors and shades thereof (5 colors/shades & 3 shades of gray) codes for great detail rendition and colors that are true to the subject.The fact that each color is available separately is a major plus. I make a lot of print-outs and tests to get one print perfect, comparable to the intensity of working in the darkroom with test-strips etc., with this ink set-up I am enabled to react to shortages individually +++Negative is that the inks are somewhat expensive. Although they last fairly long when printing in the range of 8x10s to 13x19 the comparably small amount of ink contained means frequent replenishment. However, the only cure for that is a more expansive, larger format printer as ink get less expensive with increase in size. This in turn means at least $1000.00 more investment for the printer. That's just up to the consumer then.Overall I do recommend this product highly. The performance is generally up to very high standards!Godspeed!

The ink is great. Folks won't believe my photos are printed by an R2400 inkjet printer ("has to be a laser printer to produce good quality prints"). But, the cartridges are small & must come about half full. I'm a semiprofessional wildlife photographer and make a lot of prints and am constantly reordering the SMALL cartidges. I don't trust generic bulk ink systems and Epson doesn't make them for the R2400 (or other printers?) any more. They make thier profit selling ink.

      Was introduced to Epson dedicated photo printers and B & H in a photography class almost 15 Years ago. Both have proven outstanding value and reliability. Why choose a lesser quality product for something that will generate good memories for a lifetime?

        Had to purchase this ink cartridge for the school printer as a "Donation". Works great, you can print quiet a few images before you run out and have to replace the cartridge. This is also the only website that I was able to find it for cheaper. So yeah I'm all about saving $.

            All my photo printing is done on an Epson R2400 purchased in August 2007. Since then, I have printed 1512 Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy 5x7s, 138 Epson 8.5x11s, 111 Epson 11.7x16.5s, 2 Epson 13x19s & 28 Epson 4x6s, all on the best quality settings. All this printing included 11.25 yellow cartridges for an average of 134.5 5x7 prints per yellow cartridge. I do not replace 'empty' cartridges until the R2400 shuts down and refuses to print. Love the quality of prints I get from the R2400!

              I am a photographer and use Epson ink cartridges for printing photographs with my Epson Photo Stylus R2400 printer. The printer uses a lot of ink so I go through cartridges fairly quickly but I haven't had a problem with any of the Epson inks clogging or spattering prints. I will continue to buy Epson ink.

                I tried a 3rd party ink in my R 1800 one time and it plugged the nozzles. After several cleaning cycles ink was sprayed through out the printer. So much for a warranty repair. Then I bought the R 2400.

                I see no reason for using anything other than this stock Epson ink, since it looks so good. Once your printer is set up and you have the proper profile for your paper, it will run like a champ with this ink!

                Great color, but runs out quickly

                I get great prints with these inks. The only complaint is that they run out fairly quick

                Comments about Epson UltraChrome Yellow Ink Cartridge:

                Epson UltraChrome inks produce spectacular prints and the ICC profiles provided by Epson work great with all the papers I use. HOWEVER. Frustratingly small amount of ink and you can still hear fluid sloshing in the very expensive cartidge when the printer refuses to print until you change out designated colors. Perhaps this has been improved on the latest generation printer, but on my Epson 2200 and R2400 that was a consistent problem
