            Colors are very consistent! Calibrated the printer once and the colors have stayed correct through many cartridge changes!

                Well this is light black, then there is light light black, I suppose there is clear, but then what's the point? The light black helps to create tonal variations. Works fine.

                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.

                The color spectrum is beautiful and the fade resistance of the prints is extraordinary too.

                    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.

                        B&H Photo can be a little intimidating at first glance. But customer service is extremely helpful and their phone ordering system is AMAZING. It's my go to store to find my ink cartridges cheaper than most vendors. About the ink, I love my Epson Stylus R3000 and the fact that it conserves ink by using specific cartridges based on the print. Beautiful, vibrant colour and masters heavyweight card stocks like a champ! I'm talking 160lb cover!!!
