I have been using Epson printers the last decade, and I have also concluded that 80ml as used in the 3800 and the current 3880 printers is just about the smallest ink cartridge that makes monetary sense if you do any proper volume of printing. Any smaller and cheaper printer with lower capacity ink cartridges - also from Epson - will soon have cost you more than the professional A2 printers.

From experience, I have also found that there is no need to worry about expiry dates on ink cartridges - at least not with these - as I have some that are more than two years over now (I've not printed as much as I used to the last few years), but there's been no problem with clotting, clogging or colours being off.

I can't compare it to third-party inks as I'd never gamble by putting anything like that through a £1,000 printer. I'll stick to the originals, thank you very much. I know that they work, that they last, I know exactly how they behave and how I have to adjust my prints to make them exactly the way I want them.

To this day, Epson Ultrachrome is the best inkset I have used, with the nicest colour transitions and shades of (very neutral) greys, negligible metamerism, an excellent gamut, and no clogging problems - though that is probably also due to the printer as the 3800-series seem to historically have had fewer complaints about that than Epson's other offerings.
