I use the genuine Epson ink for making fine art prints. the quality of the prints are excellent. I have experienced a couple of dysfunctional cartridges that were replaced free of charge. the ink is very expensive. there are substitutes for this ink but I don't print in high volume so I don't think they would work for me.I want trouble free printing.

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:

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

What can I say.
Genuine Epson made cartridge well with in the expiration date and at a discount.
What more could an Epson R3000 owner want?

Comments about Epson 157 Light Light Black Ink Cartridge:

I have noticed lately that when I order ink from B&H the expiration (shelf-life) dates are sometimes nearly expired. Epson lists these inks as having a 2 year shelf life (unopened.) When I get them in I'm noticing I may have 18 months left or only have as little as 6 months left on that expectancy. I'm hoping that does not become a problem for me.

          I thought light black was gray, but maybe it's just light black. It goes with the other colors and seems to blend in well to get various tones.

            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 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.
