Difference between Epson 69 and 88 ink

What is the difference between Epson ink cartridge 69 and 88? A little confusing thing about Epson ink is that some printers will take multiple kinds of ink cartridges. There are 3 ink cartridges that compatible with the same printer i.e 88 (moderate use), 68 (standard-use), and 69 (high-capacity).

They’ll all print the same quality, but how long they last and the price/page are dramatically different. In the other side, it’s all about your need; if you print more often or in high volume then the 69 (high-capacity) is a better choice because it’ll less to refill. But you can still get more affordable ink (88) if rarely to print and do not need to invest in an expensive ink.
