Thanks for these. I recently bought some cartridges of PR EDCB and I think they may be a little old as the colour is more muted. Oh well, they were only $1 for a pack of 12.

Thank you for the comparison, bukhsyed.

Oh! And if you have a moment, do you mind listing the ink colors (in this comparison) in the text of your post so that other members can find your examples in a search?

That would be much appreciated!
