    I was on a mission to test varying paper quality levels. In the past I assumed paper was paper and usually bought the cheaper mid-grade stuff but curiosity got the best of me and I bought this pack. I was shocked at the results, the difference between premium and ULTRA premium is like night and day. Colors are richer, more vibrant. Lines are sharper. Skin tones, blondes, and browns actually fade to shadow instead of a grey blob like on lower quality papers. Snapshots from my hikes in Yosemite and Bryce Canyon really come alive at 8.5x11 and make me feel like I'm there again. You can actually see the people climbing up Half Dome from a mile away. I will never go back to a lighter weight paper. (Epson Artisan 810 printer used)

    Best photo paper for Epson photo printers

    If you own an Epson photo printer, this is the best paper for printing photos. I have used other name brand papers and some generic brands (never again), but I just prefer the weight and look of my prints when using this paper. If you want to print 4x6 photos they have paper in that format as well. The paper can be a little pricey, but they go on sale quite often or sometimes rewards members get a discount on ink & paper. When this happens, Best Buy's price is hard to beat. Wasn't sure how to rate the compatibility of this product since I have never used this paper on anything else but an Epson photo printer.

    Yes, there are a lot of photo papers with a glossy finish. And yes, I am sure there are other photographic quality papers that perform as good as if not better. But we are using it with an epson printer. So Epson, the maker of the paper, printer and inks has control over all of the variables with the exception of the quality of the original being sent to the printer. Trusting the user to supply a decent image, this will give you a print that meets or exceeds your expectations.

    We have discovered that paper makes a difference, and using the ultra premium or premium paper is the best way to go. We have an Epson printer and there is a clear difference in quality when we use Epson paper products. The pictures just pop off the page and the paper holds the ink very well. Using other brands of paper with our Epson printer never had good results. We had a similar experience when we mixed papers on other brands of printers.

    I bought this after I purchased a new Epson color printer and was not getting the results I expected. I was using another brand of premium photo paper that was a couple of years old. I was very disappointed in the quality of the prints I was getting from that paper. The first photo I printed with this new paper was an eye-opener, as it was able to bring out the details and colors exactly as I saw the RAW photo on my screen.

    Sale made this paper the best price anywhere. Have to buy a lot for college class photo printing requirements. This was the type, brand, style, color, quantity I needed and was on sale. As a college student that was important. Only disappointment was it was not in stock at the store so I had to wait for it to be delivered

    As long as you have a good printer that is using decent ink you might as well get good paper for certain photo printing experience. Target did not have it, so thank goodness Best buy did. Thank you Best buy for carrying photo paper and at a great price. Best buy was reliable, convenient and I am happy.

    Horrible paper

    We bought this paper to print vacation pictures on. The ink would not stay on the paper. The ink smeared, scratched, and rubbed off without any pressure being put on it. We let the pictures sit and dry overnight, the ink still would not stay on them. We bought different paper and reprinted the pictures; they turned out great. We would NOT recommend this paper to anyone!
