Epson T054020 (T0540) Gloss Optimizer Remanufactured Ink Cartridge for Stylus Photo R1800 and R800
Looks like Genuine Epson ink, Cost 1/3 the price.
The LD Products re-manufactured ink cartridges sold by 4inkjets work perfectly in my Epson R1800.
The printer reads the chip and sees these re-manufactured ink cartridges as Genuine Epson Ink cartridges; And yet, they cost less than 1/3 the price of Genuine Epson Ink.
I am a Serious Amateur Photographer, over the last couple years, I have built a complete Digital Dark Room in my apartment. My Digital Dark Room Now includes 2 wide format Epson Photo printers (Stylus Photo R1800 and an Epson Stylus Pro 7600); both printers use Pigment inks which can be very expensive for the Genuine Epson cartridges.
Having the option to buy Re-manufactured ink cartridges at 1/4 to 1/3 the price of Genuine Epson Inks is the only way I can afford to print my High Resolution Photos and general documents with these Professional grade printers.
Buyers Beware: I found many Web Stores selling Epson Compatible T054 ink cartridges for much less than the prices charged here, BUT, the other stores are often selling Dye based inks which are Not Compatible with the Epson Stylus Photo R1800!

Safe to Use
It's taken me several year to become secure enough to use remanufactued ink cartridges. My Epson Printer instructions did say I could do harm to my printer if I used any thing but their cartridges. To my delight the 4inkjets remanufactured cartridges worked great. I couldn't be more pleased!
