Using older ink cartridges on my Epson Pro 3880

I haven't used my Epson Pro 3880 for a few years, though it has been on the whole time. I'm getting back into printing again. At this point two of the cartridges are empty (or nearly so) and need to be replaced.

I have four ink cartridges that have expiration dates from May thru August 2016, and one Lt. Lt. Black cartridge that I believe has a 8/2019 expiration.

So, is it okay to use these older, 'expired' cartridges? I've heard that they should be fine, I just need to shake them gently before installing them, in case any pigment has settled.

What do you all think? Is there some downside or problem with using these, or am I good to go?

Regards, David
