    I was told that the price is dictated by Epson and dealers weren't allowed to sell for less, but that might just be my dealer trying to avoid giving me a discount...

    That could be i see they have multi packs but the ink would be expired before i used 4 of the same color. You save a lot of money that way. Too bad you can mix and match colors.

    Is there a difference in formulation between GS3 inks and GS3 3M MCS inks? Epson's website doesn't say that the ink is any different, just says that it carries the warranty if you've done the program. I'm guessing it's the same ink, just pay extra for the warranty?

    To the original question, I've heard the same from suppliers about Epson controlling the pricing pretty good.

    That is correct, and if you price check multiple dealers you'll find Epson inks are the same price everywhere.

    Yeah I've contemplated getting the 4 packs, but they would last about a year with our current use. This printer is really good on ink, I started a 625 sq ft print the other day that was mostly blue, the warning icon was already on for cyan before I started, I was able to run the whole job without having to change the cartridge, I was impressed.

    Anyone know how long the ink topically has before it expires? Maybe i will just buy all 4 packs, or at least the cmyk since they go faster normally.

    It's 3 years from date of manufacture. It says so right on the box and the cartridge label.
