A test like this with visual graphical representation would be more easy to understand.
So far the 673 series are best bottled ink from EPSON IMHO.

I even compared the P900 OEM ink 50Eur for cartridge with 673 series (4CMYK colors used). The gamuts are nearly identical at 676 for 673 and 681 for P900 with it's 10 INKS all OEM. This means this printer is very very bad to Quality / Price Performance ratio.

Add another fade test finish recently. 10/18~12/1
Since I am curious about HP GT52 CMY & different combination of GI73+001+673K.
Also test another claim UV resistant dye ink from China as BulkInk EV330

The results of your tests are quite interesting and confirm previous tests - results can vary quite a lot between CMY and K colors on different papers, it is just not possible to make a general claim that Ink 123XX is always better than the 456PP ink - it is much more complex, and results are different again between the cast coated and the Epson and HP photo papers , and the other paper.

The EV330 performs pretty well as a 3rd party ink - how/where is this ink available - via Aliexpress ? Pricing and availability on local level could make such ink attractive as an alternative to OEM inks in some cases.

The ink I test actually about 100ml for 5usd each here, but seems like an OEM from EV330 on taobao/tmall(about 1.5USD there). I don't sure the same product on aliexpress.
Similar to https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001188725548.html but this page for HP.

Maybe I should start another test, it might actually the same ink from Hongsam Evernew?!
