Excellent quality which gives great results which are vivid and punchy.

Epson photo paper as a generalisation simply works and does a damn fine job of doing so.
Using this paper on my Epson XP-760 and also my Canon MG 6250 and the results are excellent.
Comparing this to Kodak's Premium or even their Ultra and there is little in comparison. The Kodak's prints (of the exact same photo and settings) are very flat and desaturated by comparison. Even boosting the colours helps little to give the same vivid and glossy finish found on these Epson papers.
When comparing these Premium papers to the Epson Ultra ones (much more expensive) there is a difference with the Ultras being a thicker paper but there is only a marginal overall improvement in the differences of the finished photo. I suppose if you insist on having the best possible print then it is worth paying for the much more expensive and difficult to source Ultra paper but unless tha tis important to you then these Premium papers will more that do a very good job.
Even these Premium glossy papers are far moren glossy then the best of Kodak's. And, imo, that does help to lift a flat image shown with the Kodak's to be vibrant and punchy.
I have found that the Epson Photo application for Windows is good to use, just ensure that you are using the correct paper settings and also select the correct "scene" - for photos of people then choose "people".
The photos, when used with the Canon or Epson printer, are dry on output. Still I do tend to leave them for several hours if placing under a glass photo frame. Kodak papers tend to be tacky for longer.
Be aware also that the calibration of what you see on your monitor can greatly influence what comes out of your printer.
Great paper, great price and excellent results.
