    I have been using this ink in my Epson R3000 for several years, now... the colors are impeccable, the prints are close to indestructible. This is a great ink.

        I simply LOVE my Epson Stylus Photo R3000 and these K3 inks are simply the best. They produce startlingly realistic color. I couldn't be more pleased.

        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.

                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.

                    I was recently in a bind and ordered a full set of ink cartridges for my Epson R3000 printer. I received my order within a couple of days and was able to finish my printing for a weekend festival. The price was also excellent.
                    As always, a great experience, buying from B&H!

                      They are much larger than previous inks for my Epson R800,so they last far longer.

                      Comments about Epson 157 Cyan Ink Cartridge:

                      I bought this Cyan cartridge to put into our new Epson R3000. When I ordered it I was pretty sure it was the right cartridge and sure enough it fit in PERFECT.

                      It was easy to install and it came in sturdy packaging with awesome graphics. I think it's great that they label cartridges so you know what printer it should work with... it would be very confusing if they didn't.

                      I printed some photos that had cyan in them and the ink looks to be cyan. I had some co-workers come over and check and they agreed, the ink is definitely cyan.

                      The product is great but I'm not so sure about the term Cyan. Nobody really knows what that it is. The other day I said to my kids "look how Cyan the sky is today" and they thought I meant a plane.

                      Can't we just call it photo light blue?
