2006 Fade Test Results

Epson Stylus Photo R1800 inkjet printer
Although I’ve only tested with a few photo printers, each inkset is used in many other printers - Even the R800 / R1800 inks are related to those in the Epson Stylus Photo 2100 / 2200.  Manufacturers make far fewer inksets than printers, so, for example, if your printer uses Canon Chromalife ink - but has a different cartridge number - results will probably be much the same as the CLI-8.
