Just got my z2300 today. It came with the premium zink paper. I also ordered the 90 pack of the above zink photo paper so I was able to do a comparison. I used the above first in case there was a huge difference, I wanted to see the lesser quality first. When I loaded the cheaper zink paper, a message came on the screen that the premium was recommended. I took the 10 prints and I was pretty happy with them. I'm using the prints for my scrapbook project. So then I printed out one of the same digital prints with the premium zink and was looking forward to a much bigger difference. It was a bit clearer but not a huge difference. The colors were a bit better but not that much. I think for the price and for what I need them for I will be happy using the cheaper zink paper to print my polaroid photos. So the short answer is yes, the cheaper zink paper will work in the z2300.
