Great prints, but cartridge life issues

This ink is great for all prints including high gloss digital photos, however the cartridges are expensive, especially since there is still ink in the cartridge after my printer indicates it is empty....Read complete review

This ink is great for all prints including high gloss digital photos, however the cartridges are expensive, especially since there is still ink in the cartridge after my printer indicates it is empty. Shake the cartridge and there is plenty of UNUSABLE ink left. I'm not sure if this still is an issue with Epson's newer printers, however 3 years ago this was a common issue with Espon printers that used this ink (black as well as the other 5 color cartridges).

        Comments about Epson 48 Black Ink Cartridge (T048120):

        I like this ink however, you never get to use all of the ink before having to replace it. I am not sure if that is the printer fault or the inks fault. When you replace it and then shake the cartridge there is still quite a bit of of usable ink left. I try putting it back in the printer but it will not let you print anything. So, I feel I do not get my money worth.

          Comments about Epson 48 Black Ink Cartridge (T048120):

          I use my printer for printing articles, brochures, photos, and greeting cards. The black ink is clean and crisp, and it does not smudge. The cartridges are easily replaced, though I am finding that I have to replace them more often now than I used to, it seems. I wonder if they are filled as much as they were some years ago, or if they are now only partially filled "to save money." Replacing the cartridges is also a really expensive undertaking. They are now at least 50% more than what I used to pay--and then they do not even last as long. Come one, Epson. You can do better for us than that.
