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...Read complete review

great color, lousy duration

Epson R3000 colors are beautiful but they don't last long enough and therefore cost a heck of a lot.

I make fine art digital infrared photographs. I rely on my Epson R3000 Stylus printer to create high quality work to to exhibit and sell. Genuine Epson cartridges are the only product I would ever use in my Epson printer. This Vivid Magenta Ink Cartridge performed perfectly as always.

Despite the small cartridge size, the ink lasts longer than expected. Have found the expiration date can safely be disregarded.

                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.
