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.

I have a new Epson 3000 Printer and I think the new printers are designed to use up the ink faster that's where they make their money on selling ink. This printer has larger color cartridges 25 ml, but takes more ink for a 13x19 printer than my old Epson 1280.

    Comments about Epson 157 Light Light Black Ink Cartridge:

    I'm a professional artist and use the Epson R3000 to make prints of my paintings as well as my photographs. Best B & W prints to come out of this line of printers using their inks. But way too expensive for the amount of ink the machine drinks.

      I use this ink in my Epson R3000 printer. It fits properly and interacts electronically the way it should. Everything is good, unless you would need another color!

              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 really love my Epson Stylus Photo R 3000. There are a lot of ink that goes into the printer, but the quality is wonderful. B & H helps out with the great price they offer to us. I always get the shipment in a couple of days

                    Uing this ink as part of the ink-set on the Epson R3000 printer makes all the difference when making Black and White prints. The quality is first rate.
