I really enjoy this notebook!...

I really enjoy this notebook! It is lightweight, thin, able to be folded back easily on itself (if you don't overstuff it with paper), intelligent in its design (I'm not aware of any brand in America that has this sheer thinness and a binding of this type combined), and it is a joy to use. The plastic spine on this brand is not as flimsy as the Kokuyo Campus Smart Ring spine. You have to pull the top area of the left spine side and the bottom area of the lower spine side to open it, but I feel like this is much better compared to the Smart Ring binder. But of course, because of the nature of the binding, you don't want to rough handle it, generally speaking. I have had mine for two months, and it has held up well just being stashed between my Japanese language textbooks for when I go to my Japanese class. I have probably opened and added and removed paper no less than 20 times from it, and the mechanism for opening is just great so far.

The paper is good quality, smooth to write on, and is almost like the standard paper you can find in JetPen's Kokuyo-brand notebooks (the Lihit Lab's paper is slightly more see-through than standard Kokuyo, I feel, but not as thin/semi-transparent as Kokuyo Mio paper, for instance).

I have bought 3 of these so far for different purposes, and I plan on buying a few more to have as backups, and/or possibly for other subjects/interests.

If I could give it 4.5 stars, I would, because of the binding being something I just have to watch out for. I try to carefully let it dangle over the side of any books I stash it between. But, I supposed the binding may not work if it were any tougher/rigid? I don't know. . .

Great notebook. The twist...

Great notebook. The twist ring feature means it's pretty much the slimmest binder you can find. If you write small, it's easy to fit several classes worth of notes in it and reorganize at will. The paper is also held in quite well since there are so many holes. The paper itself is very nice, it's smooth and a good thickness. I occasionally use fountain pens and have never had any trouble with bleedthrough. My only quibble is that the paper format is not very standard (29 hole?? why not 26?), but they do sell graph paper refills, which covers my needs.

Love this notebook! I take it with me almost everywhere! The paper is very soft and there is enough of it so that you won't need to buy refills for it right away if you don't want to. However, if you're using it a lot for things such as note taking, getting some refills is a good idea.

This notebook is terrific. It has a great writing surface that lets me easily glide with my Jetstream pen. For writers with small handwriting, this notebook is great. Easily being able to take out the pages is also a plus. The only drawback is that the notebook doesn't come with many sheets. Thirty sheets are definitely not enough to take notes and use for assignments.

Great for taking notes!...

Great for taking notes! It's really easy to open the binder, but closing it can be a little tricky at first, but I got the hang of it. I actually found out later that Kinokuniya at Bryant Park sells this notebook and the refills for a cheaper price...darn.
