I use inks from and have found their GO seems to work just fine. Also use their other inks for my R2000 and have no quarrels with quality or price on mostly Ilford Galerie Glossy and Pearl.

Thanks, Dick, for your feedback. As I already said, IJF GO seems to produce a yellow cast visibly lower than the OEM GO does. So I decided to go beyond this subjetive test and compare two printed 513-patch targets, one with IJF GO and the other without GO. The paper is a generic resin-coated 270g.

The comparison report made by i1Profiler show these targets have a dE2000 of 0.87, barely visible by naked eyes. Unfortunately I have not the OEM GO anymore, so I can't atest its qualities.

So, I usually profile targets with GO, since I verified GO/non-GO prints subjectively differ less profiling the GO target than the non-GO one.
